My sincerest thoughts & prayers to her family. I always felt that Mootilda was the "cool aunt" of her online family.
Thank you Mootilda, for all your amazing contributions to our community, for all the patience & guidance you shared with noobs like myself. You will be sorely, sorely missed... <3
Mootilda's works are brilliant, they always remains vitally relevant.
Mootilda was stunningly talented.
The best of us often leave this life too early.
It hurt a lot.
Say the Word and will be free,
Say the Word and be like me.

I liked Mootilda so much. Can't even imagine how she was living for last years. She was so kind and patient, surely she earned herself a happy life in a better place. I can only hope.

This is new news to me as I sometimes go long stretches with the time for our game & community websites, so I'm shocked & saddened as if this just happened. The first page I always find is hers when I log in. I spent much time the last two days going over her notes to me, having happy thoughts about our memories.... and then I just discovered this & it's hitting me like a ton of bricks. Now I know why The Universe unfolded the way it has.
I am so sorry for yours & our loss. So very sincerely. She went above & beyond for me, and I miss her terribly. I've had chronic leukemia since I was a kid, and it's one thing when it's one's self, but another thing entirely when it's someone else, especially someone you highly regard.
She was so selfless & good-hearted.
Goodbye Mootilda. I'll see you on the other side beautiful soul. Be ever blissful, charming & happy.

Every day when I came home Mootilda would tell me about her day, and all the people she had helped, the interesting problems that she was working on, the discoveries she had made about how the game worked, or some new creation she had made from the tools she had created. This community made her so happy and brought her so much joy. I can't thank everyone enough for helping to give her life purpose.
Before joining the MTS community Mootilda had worked for a computer science research group at a university, then went on to work for Microsoft on Visual Studio, and then into Microsoft's pure research division where she studied techniques for how to make software completely without bugs. Producing high quality programs was always one of her greatest passions in life and I think it showed in everything she did. When she was no longer able to work she turned that passion on the problems in the sims. She was one of the smartest people you will ever meet, and all she wanted to do was to share what she knew with everyone.
I can't say enough good things about my wife. This outpouring of support from everyone has made me cry. I knew how many people she has touched over the years but to see it like this is overwhelming. I loved her dearly, and like everyone else here I will miss her.
CONTROL ALT DELETE.
Rest In Peace Mootilda.
I'll miss you, Mootilda. You were one of the best and brightest of MTS and we MTSers are poorer here without you.
I loved Moo and her mods! I had never known her in real life, we were only chatting through PMs, but reading she has passed away makes my eyes misty.
Rest in peace, Moo. You will be dearly missed.
I'm grateful for the chance to have benefited from her knowledge, patience and kindness. I'm glad to hear contributing to the Sims community was something she enjoyed. I think there are a number of Simmers with health issues, myself included, who have found this to be a place where we can contribute, interact and be enriched for it. This is so important when you are limited in what you can do. I know all of our times will come someday but this was too soon and seems so unfair. My heart goes out to Mootilda's family and friends. I hope you are able to find some peace and comfort and enjoy the good memories you have of her.

It says a great deal about a person that they are admired, respected and "known" to people that they haven't ever spoken to or even know exist. Mootilda, thank you!

Rest In Peace, in the sky.
I'm new here and I have been, and still AM, using the MAJORITY of her mods. I literally just now downloaded MooVille and figured out what it stands for..
I've been leaving her messages thinking she was just offline.
This actually breaks my heart. I didn't know this at all. I thought she just went inactive.
I feel so terrible. I miss her and I didn't even know her. She was phenomenally skilled and had some of the best CCs. She will truly be missed.
