My fave quote from Monkeyflower is " No one knows who the dancing rat dances for, but the truth is he dances for all of us"

Monkeyflower gave us the gift of walking with her to the end ...

We all die alone - nobody can do your dying for you I experienced when my father had an extended slow decline for years.

Letting others in was her gift ... when most close down and push people that can’t possible understand away ...

She allowed us a window into the next place ...

RIP Monkeyflower ... a special glp’er

Now I get it.


I am not sure why I didn't get it before, I used to have many friends on GLP, then I left for a few years. Since I started coming back again, rather than find the community again, I allowed a few represent the many and fulfilled my lowest expectations of the world, and the community.


What a gift she gave to all of you, what a gift you gave to her. I am about to cry again. Without even realizing it you have all given me a gift.

I often wondered over the last few months about the unfortunate timing of her post. How anyone would even read it with so much happening ...I was looking for hope, strength, guidance something to remind me why I cared even about humanity. Little did I know in my cynical, jaded brain that here, hidden in this little thread...was the hope, acceptance, strength, love, and wisdom I have been searching for and never finding. The guidance. A gift. She wasn't looking for attention and all of the things I assumed... she was giving us a gift by simply sharing herself and her thoughts. I am sure most of you know this already... I just realized today, please excuse my intrusion, and please accept it.

I am sorry to see that this beautiful human passed, but what a gift she left us.

I am inspired, moved, and changed by what I read here this morning.

How could I forget that people don't always post threads for attention, pity, trickery...

For all of the mean spirited, negative energy that I find on GLP ...this beautiful human who I never met, and never spoke to chose to share this intimate time in her life with her friends on GLP... with strangers as well. I am sure I am not the only person who waited until now to finally read this thread. I did not remember that although there are so many trolls and mean people out there, there are beautiful people.. I can't recall a time I felt such energy in a thread.

Sending love and thoughts toward her beautiful family who also brought tears to my eyes as I pictured their kind gestures of love and appreciation. That says so much about Monkey Flower in itself.

This small thread, on a smallish forum, renewed my soul. Thank you all for being you.

How wrong I was to be afraid to see the trolls here, mean comments, and whatever else I thought was actually going on in here. Not only was I wrong, I couldn't have been MORE wrong.

My heart is filled...I am not sure how to feel about this emotion I am experiencing. Whatever I thought I knew about the world, about GLP... I am reminded again who I am and how beautiful humanity can be.

Just a week or so ago I posted a comment about someone I know going through similar circumstances. Gayle sent me a PM and her phone #.

Even as she was so close to the end of her life.. she was completely loving, wanting to reach out to help others. Our loss is Heaven's gain.

One last tribute to our beautiful monkeyflower BeautifulDayCat
 Quoting: NOLAangel


My heart aches for her Kountess Kitty, too, who never left her side.
 Quoting: Avenger1


Every time I talked to Gayle we of course also talked about Kitty and we were joking about her a lot, like Kitty going out at night, dancing on tables, singing and drinking vodka and then she would pass out next to her, so when Flower would wake up, Kitty was there curled up and attached to her, sound asleep.

Then two Caturdays ago I sent her a card from American Greetings, with a talking cat wearing a crown (I named her Princess Patty), who presented Gayle with the Order of the Oranges and told her to give her regards to her niece Kountess Kitty.

In the card I wrote..

You must be curious how I got in contact with Royals like Princess Patty. Well, it's a bit of a strange story.

About seventeen years back, Queen Beatrix visited my town Deventer. It was a big event of course. People waved their tiny flags, Bea waved her queeny hand, there was big band music, children singing, all kinds of traditional games like biscuit biting, bag walking and egg running.

At one point I noticed this white cat with a crown doing her dumpings on my balcony. I shooed and said: "Just because you think you are royal, it doesn't mean you can sit where ever you like!" Well, long story short, we did get off on the wrong foot, but in the end she apologized, said that she liked my honesty and that life as a royal kitty wasn't easy at all with all these paparazzi around, gave me her number and we have been friends ever since.

So every now and than, on special occasions like these I can ask her for a favor, because no pictures were taken of her misstep way back then on my balcony...


So that's how the name Kountess Kitty came about. Such an extraordinary cat she is. She'll be alright. hf
 Quoting: InterMezzo


My heart is melting. Thank you for sharing that beautiful story.

I have checked this thread almost daily. I have enjoyed the music, photos and Caturday, but most of all, it was the honesty of her journey that kept me coming back. I have learned so much about life and death and the need for deep compassion as we exit this dimension. I think of all of the people who have died alone, without someone to ease their pain in their final days and my heart hurt. I think this thread is a timely lesson for us. Things will be very different and TBTB want to destroy us. We must have love and compassion for our brothers and sisters, regardless of their politics and religious preferences. We must be more godlike in our actions and live our spiritual truth.

RIP, monkeyflower. Namaste.

Hello my Dearest bestest GPL Family!

You really really are the bestest of any family I could hope for!

I have enjoyed every single thing you have posted. Prayers, poems, flowers, animals, laughs. The photo journals of walks, the busy happy working and playing animals (Louis, I know who who controls my Kountess kitty's days! You have her remote control!)

I do not have the words to express how much you all mean to me. I get to have springtime right here in my bed! It went perfectly with the chocolate malt and fries as well.

I have had a rough few days and you guys got me though. I often fall to sleep reading, watching or listening to this thread. I am aware of the outside world, yet very content in the world YOU have made for me here. I am so blessed and so loved and I can feel it and I know it. Also thank you mezzo for keeping people updated when I am not able. You are such a special hospice Angel even though I could not pick your face from a crowd. I could not pick any of you com a crowd, but somehow I believe I would be able to. When I say I love you guys, it is true and from the bottom of my heart. Kountess kitty loves you too. I can tell because she just ran thru the room dragging a link Mylar star shaped balloon by a white ribbon. If you look up the word love in the dictionary, you will find your own pictures. I am crying, not because my uncle called me, but because I feel pure simple love and joy! Thank you all for that. I am sending love and hugs. Too much love? Share it please! Too many hugs, share those too. I don't know much, but the most important things in life are people. Taking care of each other, loving each other, hugging each other. Kindness, helping others thru hard times. You guys obviously know this. Thank you !red_heart

Reading what I believe to be her last post brings me peace to know that she was filled with love and joy to the end. I pray everyone here feels the same when our last hour comes. RIP Miss MonkeyFlower.
