God bless Jane

Hello there.
Thanks for stopping by.

You may already have heard that dear Jane passed away 
yesterday morning in her sleep. 
I am sure you will join me in sending her husband and children sincere condolences.
Words are completely inadequate here.

But Jane and I made some great plans together, 
and more will be revealed in due course.
She was a brilliant woman, very clever,
And she leaves a marvellous legacy.
Rest in peace, Jane. 

Much love,

  38. I only started to follow her story relatively recently but did look back over her diary and the different problems she faced with equanimity. She was obviously a very strong and clever lady who lived and died as she would have wished. I'm so glad to got to meet her and she was determined to meet you too, and good to know that through those meetings you have made plans for keeping her memory alive. x

  55. RIP Jane, condolences to the family, and to you too Barbara. It seems like she was just waiting to see you before she went. Very sad.im sure Becs did that too, just waited till we were all sorted and Kieran was doing well and settled with the start of his army carreer. We'd had the best Xmas with her and she'd spent time with Grandma, then just decided that was it, she'd had enough. God I miss her, now I'm sad! Time for some crafty therapy!Wxx
