Tribute To Lily Alfred

If you follow my blog, or have taken a look, you may have seen Lily Alfred’s very clever, sharp-witted comments. Though Lily and I met long ago in another galaxy, she became quite active in my life in April 2010, when I began my Red Room blog. She was an avid reader and commentator, with the right combo of wise and comical. She continued her loyal tradition here at the Cupcake Rescue League in 2014. Being rather faithful, she remarked on nearly every blog I posted (the ones she missed were due to her computer’s mishaps).

I shared anecdotes about her on my sister site,, which detailed my attempts to heal her, after she fell ill, and other special experiences. Though I tried my best to save her, some things are out of my control, and I am very sorry to tell you that she died.

Thank you, Lily, for everything and for loving my writing and humor as well as indulging my quirkiness and playfulness. I surely hope there’s a strong internet connection in the spirit world so you can glimpse my musings wherever you are.

Long live Lily!



I am a rather obscure 14th C. poet, whose work has been translated into over thirty dialects of gibberish. I now spend my days translating from the gibberish into English and back again, as need be.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about LIly’s passing, but what a beautiful homage to her. My sincere condolences to you. May you remember her quirkiness and upbeat remark to lessen your loss. As a former Red Roomer myself, I wonder if I knew her, too. Again, my sympathies. ~nan


  2. I loved Lily’s comments on your website. She often posted very witty and funny ones and I always felt a friendly competition whenever I posted just ahead or just after hers. I am so sorry to hear she had passed and love your wonderful tribute to her.. I’m positive she is laughing with the angels up there in the lofty clouds . . . and beaming down at us! Shall miss my fellow Red Roomer and all her clever comments.
