Jan Orndorff passed away on 7 July 2016 after a lengthy struggle against pulmonary fibrosis, which was diagnosed in 2002. In 2011, she underwent a lung transplant, but after an initial success she lost the battle against rejection, and particularly as a result of the medication used. Jan was very active in raising awareness of the condition, a founding member of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Association. She leaves a widower, John, three children, 6 grandchildren and a huge legacy in terms of her efforts for PF sufferers.

News reached us of the death of Nelle Mancil McLaughlin, who blogged on AOL as McJerseyGirl. Her blog was Copious Chatter. She was a kind and generous person, who will be sorely missed. May she rest in peace, now that her suffering (through ill health) is over.
