Announcement – The Loss Of M

It is with great sadness and a truly heavy heart that I’m sharing with you that M of Cammies on the Floor is no longer with us. She passed away tragically and all too young early last week.  I am not able to share the details and will never be in a place to do so. Please honor her memory and that boundary out of respect for her, her family, and her loved ones.

For those of you that read and interacted with M you saw a glimpse of the woman she was. Uncensored, unabashed, and filled with love and passion for so many things the world had to offer. And of course infinitely complicated.  In her true fashion it was merely just tease of the amazing person she was beyond that.  She was committed to her communities of choice including other writers, Kink, and Polyamory.  She lived every moment with passion and energy like so few others.

The parts you most likely never saw in her online work was her softer side. Her vulnerabilities beyond romantic entanglements. Her tireless love for all people and animals. The pain of her loss of A a few years earlier. She had a innocence and tenderness that was masked with quit wit.

M worked endlessly to help those she cared for as part of her profession handling each challenge with drive, determination, and courage while facing the sadness, heartbreak, and neglect she tried to alleviate. Every day striving to make other’s lives better with little concern for the toll it took on her. All done with a commitment and dedication that no doubt left so many she knew with a little better life.

M was a highly educated woman with multiple advanced degrees all obtained in order to aide those she served in her life’s chosen work.

During lighter times she would debate the value of owning books vs. simply reading them and then passing them along. Other topics often included her perceived indifference to fashion, the beauty of the mountains, her love of lush green spaces. Other passions were limitless and ranged from intellectual to creative to athletic.

For those of you who were not lucky enough to have seen her face M had the most beautiful brown eyes. Eyes that would twinkle in a special way when she was being coy, playful, or mischievous. Often accompanied by a wonderful grin that included her biting down on one side of her lower lip.

As for the practical matter of her website she always planned posts months and at times years into the future. We will have to wait and see what if anything is shared there as time passes.

She lives on through her children, family; both chosen and biological, without question her beloved Mr. Texas and of course me.

The picture used in this post is one from the happiest day  I ever spent with her.  A warm November day along the ocean. A small piece of joy to remember her by in a time that is anything but joyful.

With sadness and all my love,
