Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Pat's words, taken from a PM. The full PM remains tucked in my wallet & accompanies me everywhere I go:
                           
                         "...Words cannot explain how important this thread has become to me and many others. Your terrible struggle shared by Ann and of course the rocky road your precious Jane traveled became a touchstone for me and I felt a closeness to all of you and our fellow travelers aboard the Rainbow. We have so many here that offer so much of themselves it has buoyed my spirits and my sense of friendship in a way I would never have believed possible in the cyber world. To this my contribution always felt so small and the only tools I have in hand are a sincere empathy for my friends and a strange, warped' and often too quick, sense of humor. I live with the words of two men always in mind:

There is only what is. What should be never existed......Lenny Bruce

If I laugh at any mortal thing, tis that I may not weep......Lord Byron..."
