Please forgive me if others have alluded to these LINES in previous postings. I was a late starter on this prolonged metaphorical , nautical journey...but I hope this provides some comfort or food for thought.


                  THE SAILING SHIP

What is death ?
I am standing on the sea shore ,
A ship sails in the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.
She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her .
Til at last she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says :
"She is gone ."

Gone ! Where ?
Gone from my sight - that is all .
She is just as large in the masts , hull and spars as she was when I saw her
And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.
The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me , not in her .


And just at the moment when someone at my side says ,
"She is gone "
There are others who are watching her coming and other voices take up a glad shout :
" There she comes "
- and that is dying . An horizon and just the limit of our sight .
Lift us up , Oh Lord , that we may see further .

BISHOP CHARLAES HENRY BRENT ( 1862 - 1926 )

Dear Nigel and Ann

Everything that has been said by others,

Jane has brought us all together to be here in times of trouble and sadness, but to be here to travel together on the Rainbow to hold you and Ann in our hearts as we go through these troubled waters together.

So much wisdom, so much love, such a wonderful crew of beautiful people.

sending you both a blanket of love

Nigel- It is your and Ann's time, Jane's husband's and childrens' time- of grieving. Feel what you feel, express that which you can express, and remember that there are many friends thinking of you all.

My grandmother outlived six of her nine children. "It's not supposed to be like this!" she said. She found ways to remember them while continuing to find joy in her life. You can too.

Make some music. It doesn't have to be beautiful or complete or be shared with anyone else. Hug Ann as often as possible. Focus on your breathing, on the world's beauty, on those who love you. Appreciate the depth and range of your emotions. Speak your love.

I'm reading...crying...re-reading...listening...trying to visualise all of you...crying some more. Can't write much yet...hurting too much...the loss of our belovéd Daughter, Jane has hit us hard...lost many relatives & friends over the years, but this is of a different order & the order is wrong...aren't children supposed to outlive their parents? Can't conceal the anger in my grief. In time, we will find ways of living with the pain, I know that to be true, but right now, feelings are raw.

"Is There Something I Can Do" (Five Star Iris)

Whoever made the claim that words could ease the pain
Never watched your tears fill up an ocean
Never saw your face, the moment you found out
That you'd have to live without, until heaven

Is there somethin' I can do other than being here for you to ease the pain
If I can keep you from fallin', fallin' down'
I'm sorry to sound selfish but I feel so helpless
Is it okay if I stay here with you and cry for awhile

Whoever made the claim that words could ease the pain
Never watched you fall apart, never put you back together
When you were broken down, into a million pieces
Scattered on the ground

Is there somethin' I can do
What can I say, what can I do

I remember as a child being very upset by the death of a school friend, Mum told me something then that I have held onto for the rest of my life.

She told me that when we are born the candle of our light is lit. it is as thin as a wax taper yet as we grow with each good choice we make, each wise thought or word that crosses our lips the thin taper gets dipped once more. With each dip the candle glows brighter and the number of dips is not solely dependent on age but on the light within the person.

Many see the end of life as the candle snuffed out but she told me that every person who loved one who died, every person who can share a memory of their kindness or wisdom carries a small piece of their candle added to their own.

As long as one person can remember something the person said or did the light from their candle will continue to light our path and drive away darkness.

Now is the time to do what you have to do but dont forget to be kind to yourselves and remember while you grieve each one of us is here to carry her candle one more step.

Thinking of all the family
Meg

It always hurts......but Jane no longer hurts and her pain is gone. For her family and friends the pain is so much greater. But even this great pain will be reduced with time and the love that was Jane will endure on and bring happier memories of more joyful times.

We wish you that healing peace which love brings over time and we thank Jane for letting us share this terrible journey for she has brought together a caring group of friends that she never met and most of whom will never meet each other. That in itself is a wonderful albeit painful legacy but one for which we are thankful.

We are here Nigel and Ann and we will be here to go the rest of the distance wth you with love and hope. Much Love.

FAREWELL

Farewell to Thee ! But not farewell
To all my fondest thoughts of Thee ;
Within my heart they still shall dwell
And they shall cheer and comfort me.

And men more true Thou wert one ;
Nothing is lost that Thou didst give ,
Nothing destroyed that Thou hast done .

Keeping Vigil

This long waiting now weighs heavy- sacred burden that will bless
As the loved ones watch her leaving, sailing off into the West.
Sleepless nights within this dreamtime shape the end of many dreams,
And the music of the living traces nighttime's salty streams.

It is love that makes this journey. It is love that finds the way.
And the arms of friends and family lift the light of this new day.
Gone the pain- and soon, the worry. Feet dance lightly on the sea,
While the songs of those in witness light the dark so we can see.

Maeve- for Jane, Nigel, Ann and all.
