Lest We Forget

I have read a couple of fantastic discussions today about meeting up with myLot friends. I take such heart from knowing that these passing acquaintanceships can turn into something much more permanent. However, my mind has also turned to some absent friends. Just three for now, but others come to mind. Let's just remember for a minute: Mummymo, Weemam, and Hatley. All MIA with, so far as I know, no one knowing where or why. If you know differently I would love to hear. Whatever, they have been friends to many of us over the years and they are missed.

I kinow what you mean. I know all three of the people you mention in this discussion. I have so many friends on my friends list. I have not heard from 99% of them in a very long time now.

Hey p1ke~ I don't know the first two that you mentioned. I guess they were before my time. But, I do know Hatley and am also quite concerned as to what might have happened to her. The last I know she had moved and I don't think she ever signed in again. I thought you would be the one person that might have known her whereabouts. It is very sad that our friends just disappear. There are a few others that have just gone too that I had met when I first came here and have no way to get in touch with. It saddens me a great deal~

I hate to even think of it Opal; but I fear the worst for Hatley. Whatever and wherever, I hope that she is happy. Her last few months here were such a strain.

hi pike . i too have read a few of those posts and it does warm ones heart. . in the short period of time i have been here there are a few people on this lot that i have a good feeling i will be friends with for many years to come . .. there is even one i am hoping on meeting in september when i head over to europe .. . i am sorry you are missing a few of your friends that have gone MIA in the recent past . .and not that anyone can ever be replaced . .and there really isnt anything one can do to make that "missing" feeling go away . . .but maybe your list of friends has room for one more "new" friend??

This is the essence of friendship or what else? They would never be forgotten. Even you try to do so it wont work.

That's very true. I have a reason to remember each of them and many others.

Oh Gabs, I'm so glad to see your response. Tell Weemam and especially Mummymo how much I miss them and would love to hear from them! Hugs sweets for relieving my mind.

Yeah I haven't heard from mummymo in awhile since right after her daughter broke her arm and school let out for them I think late may? or early June. I can't say I know what happened to them though. Would be good to hear how they are doing and how mummymo's daughter is doing.
@p1kef1sh (45640)
16 Jul 09
I heard from her last night. She has a number of things on in her life but she's OK. She's struggling to keep up with her e mails I think.

I haven't tried to write to her this month..maybe I scared her off? But it is good to hear that she is alive. Hope now for the other two to surface to see how they are doing.
@p1kef1sh (45640)
17 Jul 09
I don't think that she is scared off at all Becky. However, she has an awful lot on and not only Mo, but members of her family have been unwell too. Write again.

I sent a PM to Mo about 6 weeks ago asking if all was OK and I never heard anything back from her. It wasn't so long ago that she was holding discussions about prayers for Weemam too, so I hope all is fine at their end and it's just real life keeping them busy. Hatley has been MIA for an extremely long time now since her move and I've heard nothing on that front. Another one I miss is Wanderer. I didn't read any of the other responses before typing this one and I should have as there may have been an update there somewhere. Going to check now.....

I sent hr one about 3 weeks ago James and I sent one to Weemam just today. I have their addresses (they live in the same road) and may well send a letter next. I don't like to phone, that feels intrusive to me. As for Hatley. That's anyone's guess.

mummymo's daughter was going to be my little sisters penpal she wrote twice and Lisa wrote back and I was conversing with mummymo several times a day in May then the end of May..Poof..no responses back to emails..hers or her daughters and not heard her back on here either. I just pray that things are okay. I know her daughter broke her arm so she is having alot to deal with, plus school is out for her kids. Just hope all is okay..

Hatley has bee missing since she moved months ago. Weemam was not too well and having problems with her Mam. Wee's situation is very difficult as you know because she looks after her parents, her hubby and her son. I usually get my info about Wee from mummymo who is a neighbour of hers. Mo has also been unwell but last I heard she was doing really well and happy to be back on the Lot and catching up. I miss them all and worry about them...and others as well.

I have heard from both Mo and Weemam since I posted this discussion. They are OK, but up to their eyes in other things. Hatley; frankly I fear the worst but hope for the best.

I've been re-arranging my emails and I tried to send you an email about a week ago but it came back undeliverable. I sent off another one from my hotmail account strawbry82 a few minutes ago. I just got back the one I sent to Wee. I'm so glad you were able to contact them...phew! I was worried....give them my love when you speak to them next please.

Oh P1ke, I'm so glad to see this discussion. Just yesterday I left a comment on mummymo's profile..........and I greatly fear we may never see Hatley again. Weemam is also missed, and so are those that have passed on from this life. It makes me cry to know such joy in meeting a mylotter, and at the same time missing so many...............
@p1kef1sh (45640)

As you know Sparky; Mo and Weemam have been spied and are well. I heard from both last night. They have things on, but are OK. I am so pleased that you have met up with someone. You are such a stalwart here, it seems like we all know each other personally, yet hardly any of us have met. But we will!!

Hi P1kef1sh, I was only thinking about Hatley the other day, remember when we were all so concerned over her and it turned out she had connectivity problems with her computer but she did say bless that she would be away for a while as I think she was moving and she was also upset over something on here. Mummymo I love and miss too but I am sure I have heard from her on another site not so long ago and Weeman I never really knew. Loud is another one but I know she is busy with a new relationship and no time now for myLot and deleted account, her choice. It is great to see that so many people are now meeting up. We started all that remember as at the time many would have liked to but never got round to it then Jill and Grandpa Bob met up and it has gone from there, really must catch up on discussions as I know Moon and Sparks met up recently to and once C is in USA you have many more to meet up with yourself. It is amazing that a site like this can lead to so many genuine friendships rather than just on line I agree.Huggles. Ellie :D
@p1kef1sh (45640)

I have heard from Mo now Ellie. She is hanging in and I hope to hear from Weemam soon. We all used to have a lot of fun - Sparky, Angel, Canadagal, Cynica, Ruby, Youl etc etc. They're all still out there and I hear from them from time to time. As you know I treasure these friendships. You are all people that helped push and pull me through a very dark time in my life; for which I shall always be grateful.

I never knew those people, but having lost a bunch of dear friends when Boomertowne closed abruptly, my sympathies for you loss. Since coming here, and being afraid it would happen again, I have swapped email addresses with a number of friends here (using PM's). I love email jokes, and that's mostly what we swap, besides seeing each other in the discussions. It's comforting when you establish enough friendship and trust to swap email addresses, and knowing you can keep in touch if something unexpected happens here.
@p1kef1sh (45640)

I have e mail addys for two of the three, but I receive no replies to my messages. However, you are right, having an e mail address does help with keeping in touch. Most of my friends have my e mail address and vice versa. But there is one, Hatley, who has just disappeared off the face of the earth. I had her telephone number but she moved and we lost touch.

That's a shame. Have you tried looking for her on Facebook or one of those types of sites? How long ago did she move? Sometimes the postal service will forward, even a year or more after the move. Is unsettling to lose people, you always wonder about them. Maybe she will contact you out of the blue? You always have me....

Hi p1ke, that is a good thing to bring up I only responded to Hatley and Mummymo but have never really questioned where they are, mainly as I never really grew to know them that well, but talking along these lines there are quite a few people who have now gone AWOL and it would be interesting to know what has happened to them...hugs LoLo xxx
@p1kef1sh (45640)

Most of the people here are pasing strangers LoLo. However there are a few that become good friends and confidantes even - yet they still have the ability to pass out of our lives literally at the press of a computer key. I have now heard from Mummymo and Weemam, but I do wonder about Hatley. XXXX

Yes, we have all made Friends in here with people, and some of them we might even be exchanging Phone numbers, Addresses and such with as well. Maybe even like others are doing meet some of them as well. I had the priveledge of meeting a myLot member a long time ago who has not been here in a long time as well. So people come and people go, but all we can do when they leave is wish somehow the Best for them as well.
@p1kef1sh (45640)

That is very true. I have heard from two of the three now and they are fine.
15 Jul 09
Hi p1key, I was just thinking about Hattley the other day and wondered where she has gone, I know she wasen't around for a long time then she did come back for a while saying she had computer trouble, but now shes gone again, no I haven't heard of ther others too, maybe they have gone off to twitter or some other sites. Hugs. Tamara xxxx

I know that she moved Tamara; and that's the last I heard of her. I hope that she's OK, but I fear the worst. I know that the move was a big strain for her.

Perhaps they simply needed a break. I go through that every now and then...I just need a few days off. Also sometimes life gets in the way and you simply don't have the time to get on here...or it could be a pc problem. They've all been here a long time so I doubt they just up and left for good. Keep an eye out and I'm sure you'll see them eventually. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I often wonder what happened to some Nanna. Sometime tell me who you miss and I'll see if I know them and can help.

I'm not sure where Mummymo went, I don't know the other two. Sometimes people just disappear from the internet from time to time, in my experience, sometimes it's because their internet connection goes down, sometimes 'real life' gets in the way and sometimes they just get bored and decide they're going to stop. If I find anything else out, I'll let you know. :)
@p1kef1sh (45640)

I suspect that it's real life in each case Dory. Thank you, if you hear anything I'd love to know.

Mummymo has popped in now and then. Weeman has bee having a busing time taking care of ailing family member and the last I heard of Hatley she was moving with her son to another residence and not to sure about Internet connections.
@p1kef1sh (45640)
15 Jul 09
I know Mummymo quite well and she's not been in here in two months, neither is she responding to e mails. I know that she had some stuff going on and it might be that that's stopped her communicating. Weemam has her parents and as for Hatley - I am afraid that she's not been seen in 7 months.

I'm not sure I remember Weemam. But I remember the other two. Hatley was one of the very first people I met when I was new here. I wonder what's up with them. Hopefully it's only good stuff!
@p1kef1sh (45640)

I hope so too. I haven't heard from or about Hatley since she moved house last year Dawn.
