Sadly my dear husband Jack lost his long, brave fight for life and I am left totally numb and bereft.  The days ahead look bleak indeed and I cannot imagine how I will be able to face life without him but I know I must.  I hope to be back in contact with all my Care2Care friends soon.  Thank you all for your invaluable support.  Gloria

I am gradually getting back on track and coping far better than I would have thought possible but there is still a gaping hole in my heart and my home, which my dear little rescue cat, Mitzi, is doing her best to fill.

    This message is from Millie:

    I am in shock. Gloria, my heart is broken, my dear sweet friend. The tears came immediately after I read Wendy's post letting us know. I just cannot believe it. Although, I know how very much Gloria missed her beloved Jack. It makes me smile to know they are now reunited. Also, glad to know Mitzi will be cared for, but I know she'll miss her mummy Gloria and the HWBs Gloria prepared every night for the 2 of them. I'm so glad I met you, Gloria, but I am going to really miss you and miss seeing you play the games, especially the 7-letter scrabble game you loved playing so much and were very good at. Rest in peace, lovely lady. xoxo

    I'm at ease knowing she is in the loving arms of her husband Jack in Heaven and that Mitzi is in good hands. You were an angel here on earth.

    I will really miss you Gloria.
