Wendy, I hope your numbness is receding, to be replaced with hope & optimism.

Spaw, holding you in our thoughts with Love & Care. As my namesake (the 'T' issue is of no consequence at times like this!), please get well.

Kat, may the healing rays of the spring sunshine warm you & restore you.

Most of Jane's funeral arrangements are done now. Just a few small details to attend to &........

Be with us on 11th, 1:00pm (UK time) if you can. Sing, rejoice, give thanks for a beautiful lady who brought joy into so many peoples lives. Her generosity, kindness & zest for life lives on in her Children,
                      With Love to You All,
                                                      Nigel & Ann.

Got you tucked in right next to 'Spaw, Kat. Whether you have energy and mobility to post much right now about how you are faring, know that you are surrounded by a sturdy and supportive crew.

Thinking about what a broad and beamy boat this is, and in terms of the heart, caring and concern, always at safe harbor to the extent safe harbor means surrounded by fellow travelers who are paying attention and joining together with loving kindness.

Wendy, here's a favorite poem for you:

James Hogg (1770-1835), also known as the "Ettrick Shepherd". He was born in Ettrick, in the Scottish Borders.

    A Boy's Song

    Where the pools are bright and deep,
    Where the grey trout lies asleep,
    Up the river and over the lea,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the blackbird sings the latest,
    Where the hawthorn blooms the sweetest,
    Where the nestlings chirp and flee,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the mowers mow the cleanest,
    Where the hay lies thick and greenest,
    There to track the homeward bee,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Where the hazel bank is steepest,
    Where the shadow falls the deepest,
    Where the clustering nuts fall free,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

    Why the boys should drive away
    Little sweet maidens from their play,
    Or love to banter and fight so well,
    That's the thing I never could tell.

    But this I know, I love to play
    Through the meadow, among the hay;
    Up the water and over the lea,
    That's the way for Billy and me.

Sailing with you Nigel and Ann, with love.

Billy had a call from his research nurse this morning, the results are back from Leeds University where the Trial he has been taking part in is based.
They have said he is in remission! I am feeling a little numb at the moment, but want to thank everyone on The Rainbow for sailing with us this past year, just sending so much love to you all.

Nigel and Ann, without you both and Jane none of us would be here together in calm or rough seas, so thank you , thank you.
Bill and I will be with you on Thursday and sailing on.

With much love from Billy and I

Wendy

I've been here, too, although I am having a computer (laptop) problem. Not the internet connection this time but a screen that fades to dark if it is not opened to exactly a certain narrow acute angle, the degree of which seems to vary from minute to minute. Sometimes I can barely poke my nose between the keyboard and screen. Anyway, the date and time of Jane's funeral are in my old-fashioned calendar book, so I'll be thinking of her, Nigel, and Ann at that time whether or not my computer is functioning.

I'd bet that the crew here could arrange to all be here during some of those hours on the 8th for a bit of a broadband wake of the Mudcat kind sharing songs and words and the best that a friendship can bring together.

How about it fellow crew? Can we all be here between 6 AM and Noon Mudcat time on the 8th? I will be for sure. My first round of chemo ends on Tuesday and will make it something good for a marking point. Let's bring our thoughts and prayers, our songs and stories, and have a 'Catter's Wake for the Paterson family.

I'm in.

woke up to fluffy snow here in Frinton, just like a silent cosy blanket falling from the sky.

Billy saw his consultant a few days ago, good news on the leuchemia count, back to normal, red cells and platelets still very low and the bone marrow biopsy needs to be repeated, but the CT scan was good, so sailing on.

Still here Nigel and Ann ( hugs)

Janie, your description of the post-funeral wake evokes vivid images & deep emotions. Ours will be post-funeral too, but sadly, no singing or dancing. Even so, it is the intention that the day will be a celebration of Jane's Life.
       For the record, clocks in the UK go forward one hour this weekend (30/31 March). I embrace BST with open arms!
       'Gather' with us on 11th, if you are able. Ann & I will be thinking of you all, our Dear, Precious Friends,
