Mary A, Kaufman

Mary blogged on Meander with Me.Following a period of declining health, she passed away on St Patrick's Day. Her husband, Carl, had a tribute posted on her blog, to which I link above.

Any further information, tributes or images can be included upon request.

Paul Squires

Paul blogged on a Wordpress blog called Gingatao on which he published some very talented poetry and prose. He passed away following a fall in late July, and was buried in Brisbane, Australia. Paul is missed by many in the wider blogging community, as is shown by the comments on his final post.

I am aware that my lines do not do Paul Squires justice, but any further information or tributes can be included in this entry.

Barn Goddess / Ramblings from the Reservation

The news has reached us through Midlife Mom's blog that the Barn Goddess passed away on 13 July 2010. I would like to refer to MM's blog for a tribute to a lady who was taken from her family and friends at too early an age.

In Remembrance of Jane 1959 -2010


Jane was known to so many of us. She lost her battle with kidney cancer today. What a fighter this lady was, what an inspiration, never losing her determination nor her sense of humour. A shining example of how to act in the face of terrible adversity. This was true courage.

Our thoughts are with her family. Martin, her husband, is also an example, an example of true love. That love for Jane shone through in his writings about her as he kept us updated on her progress after she became so unwell she could no longer write herself. Our condolences go to her three children, Martin and her extended family at this saddest of all times.

She is now at peace, no more pain. A new angel in heaven.

Sleep well, Jane, you will never be forgotten.

The link to her journal. Please visit and leave your own memories and condolences. I have informed Martin that Jane has her place here now with our other much loved departed friends.
