Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
gnu said - I am staring at the keyboard. I know that must sound poorly but... there it is. I know someone will have something better to say so I shall defer.

When my good friend John Dengate died 5 weeks ago, all I could reply to his wife was - 'very sad news - love to all. I have no other words at the moment'.

I still haven't been able to say much more to her tho we've had many emails & have met up several time, most recently last week when she gave me his ties to use in quilting. She said I'd expressed my admiration for John so many times over the years that I didn't need to say anything more.

His songwriter & poet friends have all found the words to express what I feel.

It's the same here.
