I just wanted to let you all know my mom Hurricanpatti or Hanname as some of you knew her died Tues. She suffered for a very long time with Cardiomyopathy. She was also on kidney dialysis and her little body just couldn't take it anymore. She hadn't been on here in a while b/c she was in and out of the hospital so much in the past few months. We had our trip to Disney planned but she wasn't able to go so she never got to see SSR. She did love Disneyworld though. I have lost my best friend in the whole world and feel very lost right now. She did enjoy you all and her infamous post.

hanname everyone, Jeneen.

I am so so sorry for your loss. My Mom died almost 6 years ago and I am still grieving so I feel your pain. Your mother will be missed, and remembered here for her wonderful sense of humor, great attitude and spirit. She blessed us with the gift of "hanname". Please take care of yourself and know that many prayers are being said for your mother, and for you and your family. Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My mom was with me on my first trip to WDW, with my dd who celebrated her 6th b-day there. So, when we bought DVC 4 yrs later, we didn't tell her and we were going to surprise her with a week-long trip to BWV's. However the day we buried her, is the day we got our paperwork from DVC..all accepted. We never got to take her with us. That next trip was hard. But, I do still feel her presence. It has been 2 years now...still hard to believe. It is so hard to lose your mom....saying a prayer for you, and for her. :hug:

We are very sorry for your loss, and Patti and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

We greatly enjoyed Patti's spirit and good humor...and of course, her Hanname! Her emergence changed a discussion that was humorous into a warm, very human friendship between people who didn't even know each other and herself. You could tell by her brief posts that she was a lady full of life and love. The thing that made the Hanname thread really special was not the humor, but Patti's enjoyment of all of our silliness which she unintentionally started.

Patti and her Hanname will be missed here too.

I am so sorry for your loss. Patty's good spirit amazed me and it must have been even more wonderful to know her in the real world. I'd like to think that every day is a day at Disney for her now.

She will be missed more than you know. I can't imagine the loss you are feeling. :grouphug:

I am certain you feel a great loss right now, but remember what a wonderful legacy she left to the tens of thousands of DISSERS and, I'm sure, to so many more in "real life". It's not often that a single person can influence so many in such a positive way.

She may not be with us in the flesh, but her memory and the spirit of "Hanname" will live on.

Our thoughts, prayers, and best wishes are with you and your family.

Bless you, Patti, and all of your family.

I feel your pain. My mom is my best buddy too; she's in end stages of stroke-related dementia, so I know how a long and lingering illness takes a toll on loved ones.

What other posters said was correct: It'll be hard going to WDW without her. Having said that, she will be with you in ways you don't expect: places you ate with her, where you stayed, things she said that made you smile laugh.

It's just really hard letting go of someone who could have shared your skin because that's the way I feel about my mom. I'm 50 and she'll leave me some day, orphaned. But I'd not trade all the love I'd gotten from her for anything and she'll leave me with a legacy few are lucky enough to even imagine.

God bless you and your family. At least you sound like you know how truly blessed you were, and all of us for "Hanname."

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My father passed in Nov, 1991. He never got to see OKW, but he would have loved it. Everytime we ride the boat to DTD, we comment how much he would have loved riding back and forth all day long. When he passed I was told that for everyday that it seems to get a little bit easier, there'll be 2 days that are much harder to get through. Now is the time to remember how much God has blessed you.

Sorry to hear about your mother. I lost my mother a few years ago and my dad 2 yrs after that. When my mom died (after 30 days in ICU..which was awful) I just had so much anxiety and panic attacks. I didn't know how to cope. A year later we went to WDW for the 1st time (since I was 12) and it gave me a new lease on life and lifted me out of the dumps making me realize that my mom would want me to be happy. You both shared a love for Disney and every time you go she will be right there with you. A big hug to you and your family.

Dear Janeen,
I'm so sorry for your loss! :grouphug:

It was with great sadness that I heard that your mom passed away.
Just last week, on another board, we were all reliving memories of the hanname thread she inspired and wondering how she enjoyed Sarasota Springs and whether she had bought any migs. It true that she was both a celebraty and a cause celebre on the DIS: I was enchanted by her spirit and her gift of humor and love. Trust that she will be long remembered here and that so many of us hold a little piece of her spirit close to heart.

It is so hard to lose a mom, and I could tell by your past posts how very much you loved her and wanted to protect her. Please accept my sincere condolences and prayers for your family.

We're so sorry for your loss, but please know that her spirit will live on in so many of us for a long time to come. We were at WDW this past Christmas and as we were leaving the CP on Christmas Eve I happened to think of the "hanname" thread with all the silliness and warmth and caring and love that surrounded it as the story unfolded and I wondered if there were others around me who shared that thought, too. In her honor, I will always keep "hanname" alive in my heart.

I'm sorry to hear your mother passed. I, too, have a mother on kidney dialysis and she also has heart problems. (She had bypass surgery six years ago and she fell last year and broke some bones). I know the feeling of trying to protect your mom, and helping her enjoy life with all the limitations, and working around her dialysis schedule, trips to the doctor, etc. Just try to find some comfort in knowing you did your best for her while she was here and how much pleasure she obviously found in her family. Your mother's sense of humor was a tribute to her spirit, and that will live forever.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. A mother is hard for a child to loose at any age. My mother passed away almost 4 years ago and I could stll cry thinking of her. It's a loss that is difficult to get used to. It does get easier but you will always miss her. The first year seems the most difficult. You miss her at every Holiday and special event. There is a void. I will pray for you and your family over the coming months. Keep remembering the times together. It helps.

I just wanted to let you all know my mom Hurricanpatti or Hanname as some of you knew her died Tues. She suffered for a very long time with Cardiomyopathy. She was also on kidney dialysis and her little body just couldn't take it anymore. She hadn't been on here in a while b/c she was in and out of the hospital so much in the past few months. We had our trip to Disney planned but she wasn't able to go so she never got to see SSR. She did love Disneyworld though. I have lost my best friend in the whole world and feel very lost right now. She did enjoy you all and her infamous post.

I lost my mom this past October, and know what you mean about losing your best friend.

Your mom brought a lot of joy to many people.

Patti will be missed, she was a great contibutor to the DVC forums.

As has been done on the past, now that everyone has had a day to express their condolences to the family, this thread is being moved to the In Memoriam board.
