  1. Ruby, I am so so so sorry, and even though I’ve only met you on the Internet, I was thinking of you all day long today. I’m sending so many good thoughts your way. Of course your mother knows you love her. Shoot me a tumblr ask if you ever want to talk <3 Abigail

  2. Ruby, I feel so sorry for you. I read this last night on Rookie and I couldn’t stop thinking about you. When I read your article, I cried , it was so powerful. I can’t belive what you are probably going through right now. I am sending a million hugs your way. Your mother certainly knows that you love her. I’m sure. xoxoxo

    much love,

    Maren

  3. Oh my god…I am so sorry. When I read the article, I cried, then I wasn’t sure you were serious, and then I read the comments, and I cried more. That is just simply terrible. You don’t know me AT ALL, but I read your blog so I understand who you are (hope that isn’t creepy), and I just feel so sad for you. Don’t feel guilty for anything, because she knew that you loved her.

    Love,
    Nell

  4. Ruby, you are obviously going through a tough time but I just wanted to remind you how much of a great person you are. You are inspirational to all readers of your blog and rookie. You stand for yourself and who you are, being a courageous role model to others.You are a great writer, your posts are always a pleasure to read. I can’t even describe how amazing your style is and lastly I may not know you only through the internet but without a doubt you are the best person I know :)
    If you want to talk my email is celia.bow@gmail.com

  5. I’m so sorry. We all send feelings of love and hope and other nameless feelings which are like happy summer times you wish could last forever. I send you a song. Come Sail Away, by Styx. It’s one of my favorites, and I have many happy memories around it. I hope it helps.
    Much love,
    Amelia

  6. Hi, I hope you’re feeling well. Everybody experience grief in different ways so it’s not wrong if you don’t cry… She would have cared more about what you felt than the way you showed it. If you need any “anonymous cry-shoulder” you can send me an email. Best wishes.

  7. Hi sweet Ruby,

    Thinking of you and happier times at the Barrington House. Keep shining and stay strong. Give my love to Celia + the Wolfman.

    Lots of love,
    your old babysitter,
    Kayla

  8. Hi Ruby,
    It sounds like your family is going through a lot right now. Even as adults it is hard to understand the things you parents are dealing with and even harder to feel like there is nothing you could do to help enough. I read your post about the funeral and wanted to send my hugs and words to all of you, but especially Wolfie. I don’t know if he remembers me but I’ll always remember what a cool and smart kid he was and I remember your sister and mom picking him up with the dogs. She was always smiling and offering to help out. She was very generous and I know there are many around the world that miss her.
    Love to your family,
    Miss Thompson from SIS

  9. Hi Ruby, you don’t know me – i’m just a reader on the other side of the world.

    I was so shocked to read this post, and my heart hurts for you. I lost my Dad almost 3 years ago, I was sixteen. You’ll keep muddling through it all, day by day and one day it won’t drain you like it does right now. It takes so much time and strength but you’ll do it. Be kind to yourself, feel whatever you need to feel whenever it appears.

    I hope the happy memories come easily, and you feel all the love your Mum had for you every single day. Find comfort in the small things (i have my Dad’s most worn jumper next to me right now) and if it is right for you, keep her memory alive by talking or writing to her and about her.

Whenever I get a comment, I become as happy as a lark blowing bubbles in the dark.
