Today We Lost a Valued Friend and Member of our Community

[center]Dearest Jeanne
(Moominmamma)


We wished you peace and much love and to be surrounded by all your loved ones today as we celebrated your birthday. It is then fitting to think you left this world on the very day you joined it.
A perfect symmetry. The circle of life complete

The poignancy of this special day is not lost on myself nor I suspect on all the myriad of friends you made and have travelled through this life with. So I leave your family and those multitudes of friends with these words that I hope will give comfort to them as you continue this journey onward.

From The Return of the King (LOTR) - A Viggoless statement i'm afraid
Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.

Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.

Pippin: What? Gandalf?... See what?

Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.

Pippin: [smiling] Well, that isn't so bad.

Gandalf: [softly] No... No it isn't.

See you on the other side Jeanne. I hope you’ll be waiting with a large glass of Chianti and good few stories to tell

Lou

As you will have seen by now from Cath's post Mooms (the wonderful Jeanne) passed away peacefully this morning and with her family by her side

Funeral details will be posted later and I will be attending. If anyone would like to go with me then send me a PM. I would also like to send the family some flowers from all of us and I hope that you approve

I will also be asking the family if they would mind us setting a donation website in Jeanne's memory. They may suggest a local charity or the hospice that Mooms passed away in so I will keep you posted

Please extend my deepest sympathies to Jeanne's family and friends. Although I did not know her as well as many on this site, it was an honour to have met her here. Her presence will be greatly missed.

FOR JEANNE:

Along the road of suffering
you found a little lane
that took you up to heaven
and ended all your pain
You may be out of sight
We may be worlds apart
But you are always in our prayers
....and forever in our hearts!

XX,Sylvana

My deepest sympathies to Dave and the rest of her family...

I send my deepest sympathy to Jeanne's family.
I had the pleasure of knowing her personally and also her lovely husband Dave. My heart goes out to him and their daughters and grandchildren.
Jeanne will be sadly missed.

Au Revoir. dear Jeanne. We never met, but your charm, wit and general 'joie de vivre' made TMB such a happy place to be. Bless you and rest in peace.

Fate had it we missed a meeting by a hairbreadth. Our community will never be the same.

I send my heartfelt condolences to Jeanne’s family.

Because I joined this group only a few months ago, I can’t say that I really knew her. But after all that I’ve read, she must have been a very lovely and warm-hearted person. She will live on in the hearts and memories of many people.

I’m not a religious person, but I love the quote that Lou took from The Lord of the Rings. It is very consoling.

Love
Gaby

I would like to share the words of Mary Frye because I think Jeanne will live in a lot of peoples hearts forever. my warmest thoughts og to Dave and the rest of her family

Do not stand by my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand wind that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in cirkling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand by my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
Do not stand by my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die.
