Lighting a candle

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Goodness me Cheezy, too much at once. Condolences and candles tonight for you, Rocky, anyone else who needs one when I get home. Strawberry scented pretty flickering ones. Take care you and your loved ones :hug:

Have just had some sad news.
A cousin has passed away today. Her daughter & daughter's OH are in the lounge with Mum at the moment.
She struggled a lot recently with depression & lost a lot of weight.
She wanted hospital care but there was never any room.

Funeral was on Friday - she's at peace & with her mum now.
She used to do a lot of charity runs, many of them in Lister Park. They are doing some work in the grounds and say they will name part of the gardens after her.

IMO it's a very sweet thing to do. It's a lovely park with lots of space.

At the last quiz night, the land lady (instead of the usual landlord) did the quiz as he was unwell. Sadly he has been diagnosed with lung cancer, he is not eating and is down to under 7 stone. He is not doing well. :(

I am lighting a candle for my brother's father in law as he is on his deathbed. He got told less than a month ago that it was terminal, within about a week or so he was in hospital as they couldn't get his pain under control.

A quick update on the work colleague with cancer, she is doing okay. Work is letting her work whatever hours she wants to. She did end up in hospital after her second round of chemo and was very poorly but touch wood that won't happen again.

I am going to have a candle lighting fest tomorrow evening. It seems more are needed. :hug:

One will be in memory of my great aunt who passed away last month. I do not yet have the details of her death, am just left with memories growing up of her cheeky smile and funny giggle. After her husband passed away some years ago she collected cats for company. Her nearest family had to search high and low for our contact details to let us know as it seems she was a bit of a hoarder. I will be sending a donation to Battersea rescue shelter which was just round the corner from her home.

Sweet dreams lovely lady :hug:

Candle please for the pub landlord, I found out yesterday that he died on Fathers day :( Although it was diagnosed as terminal lung cancer it was a lot quicker than everyone thought, he was given a year at the most. From diagnosis to his passing was 2 weeks......so very much a shock to a lot of people.

My kitten - Sally Anne died today, what started out yesterday afternoon with hyper salivating, extreme shaking and quick breathing,uncontrolled weeing for 10 mins she then returned to normal - running around, eating drinking, then again the same routine, at 5.45 we called the vets and took her straight down, the vet thought it might be toxins from the gloss paint but we had kept her away from all paint. She stayed at the vets overnight with the same behaviour taking place time and time again . The poisons line was called this morning, and bloods were taken - nothing came up. It would seem that she had some brain seizure - the last one she could not be brought out of and she came home and we buried her in the garden. We are devastated, she was such a live wire - and so clever, we are both missing her dreadfully. To the day she was 4.5 months old.... :cry:

Similar thing happened to one of my best friends cats actually. He was a dear little soul called Buster. He had a sudden seizure and choked on his food. Vet thought he probably had epilepsy and would never have made old bones.

Our neighbours cat Fernandez was killed on the road last Sunday, we were all upset, he was often to be found in our house. He kept us company in the garden, always appearing as soon as we went outside. Archie, our dog loved playing with him, and we often found Ferdy in our snug watching the dog sleep as if he was willing him to wake up and play.


Archie has appeared ‘depressed’ since the weekend, he sits at the gate looking for Ferdy and is really out of sorts. Ferdys owner J is away on holiday, we are dreading her coming home and finding Ferdy is gone.

Animals are much loved part of our lives.

Thank my fiends, I am struggling to move forward... never lost a cat so young, it seems so very unfair..... so well one minute and gone the next.... I can't move her favourite toys at the moment. They are where she left them.....

The box Mr. Z collected her body in from the vets was obviously a box that had delicate stuff in and was marked FRAGILE, reminds me of the song by Sting.... The bedroom she slept in will always be Sally Annes room.

Hope tomorrow will be less tearful, I am running out of liquid..... How did these creatures get inside us so much.....!

I rarely post on here now, but I’d like to light a candle for a former colleague who died suddenly at the weekend. She was only 48 and one of the fittest, most health conscious people I know.

She’d only recently moved into her dream home and her son’s partner had her 21 week scan today, so the baby will never meet her grandmother. Such a shock and really sad news :cry:

So sorry to read about the kitten too :(

Zosh I am so sorry to hear about your little cat - you must be heartbroken.

A candle please for a friend of mine who gave birth last week but sadly the baby's heart stopped and they couldn't revive him. She and her husband are understandably devastated. I cried when she told me that they had to register his birth and his death at the same time - life can be very unfair.
