My most sincere thanks to you people...

Very few of you ever met my little girl, but your expressions do her proud. She is indeed sleeping peacefully awaiting her time.

Ray

Our paths crossed online several years ago on another forum for a now-defunct series, I doubt you'd remember but I always delight in spotting you online, for your valuable encyclopedic knowledge, wisdom and insight.

Hence, I am truly sorry for your loss, and can only offer my humble condolences and offer thanks that you have a loved family to help and share memories with.

To quote Ernest K Gann:

You are standing upon a shore...somewhere. A ship before you spreads her white sails and starts for the blue ocean. It is a beautiful and strong ship and you watch until it hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other.

Then someone at your side says, "There...well, well, she's gone."

Gone where? From your sight - that's all. she is just as large in mast and spar as when she left your shore, just as strong and able. Her diminished size is in you, not in her, and while someone is saying, "She's gone..." there are other eyes watching her coming and ready to take up the glad shout, "There she comes!"

That is nice, David...

 

To make your first post here for this purpose, and to go to the trouble of including that quote, shows you do care and I appreciate it.

 

Not that I don't also appreciate the previous posts, I am indeed moved by the level of comfort expressed here. And the number of e-mails I've received from others who've seen the thread and chosen to contact me personally.

 

My thanks to all of you.

Thanks David - I think that is  both a lovely and apt quote for the passing of someone who was obviously well loved. :)
