I can't believe this.  Another Sister gone!  I will never forget the PM she sent me long ago.  So inspirational!  You will be missed deeply, Bajanne.  Rest in Jesus arms, my dear sweet lady!

RIP

:(
this is heartbreaking.

I didnt get to speak with her on a one on one basis, even though i actually intended to...

I was fortunate to have her as secret santa, and have some very nifty things to look at and remember her by.
perhaps i should break open that tinsy bottle of liquid she sent me, in her honor.

my love and thoughts, I send to her family.

Is it wrong of me to ask if anyone knows what took her.  She seemed ok and i dont know if it matters the 'why' or 'what' but sometimes it settles thoughts.   I hope her family is ok.  What a hard thing to have to deal with and i wish them all healing.

This was a shock to see on Facebook. Just seemed like she posted recently, but in reality it was a month ago in the thread I read.
RIP Bajanne

She just posted yesterday. I am sure this was a shock to everyone.

I knew I saw her posting the other day. 

When I saw this, it just floored me.  From my first days here to as recently as my issues with the transplant surgeons (and probably other things that I'm just not recalling at the moment) she always had a kind and encouraging word to say.  She will definitely be missed.

Facebook post today from Bajanne's daughter Sam:
Announcement: There will be a Home Going Celebration in Tortola for my mother on the Tuesday the 14th of May at the St. George's Anglican Church on Main Street. The viewing starts from 10:30 to 11:10 followed by a service of tributes. Please as we celebrate this vibrant life, please wear vibrant colours or african clothes. We are rejoicing that the Lord has taken my beautiful mother home. Thanks everyone. Please keep my family in your prayers during this difficult time.

A Home Going Celebration.. I like that

On Prince Edward Island we have a tradition that I believe stems from our Irish roots (and if I'm wrong about this, I'm sure Darth will "correct" me.*L*).  When someone dies, we have a wake, and raise a glass, and if for some reason you're not able to make the wake, you still find a way to raise a glass. *G*

So, for Bajanne, I will raise my glass and say, fare well, my friend.  I hope that when I make my way home, you will be on the welcoming committee.

You're spot on, Rikki.....

The wake, and raising a glass of something boozy to the deceased is VERY much an Irish Tradition... It's part of the Irish thing of 'Giving the person a good send off'...

A slightly odd thing is when we raise the glass to the corpse, we say 'Slainte' (prounounced Slawn-cha), meaning 'Health'... I never said we were sane!....

Safe Home, Bajanne... I'll raise a large glass of grapefruit juice to you... Slainte!....

Love to all.... We need to appreciate each other even more these days... Our very existance is so fragile!..

Darth....

Bajanne is still in my heart. She made me feel very welcome when I first found IHD. I am so sorry that I wasn't able to make a Vegas Meet.

May you always find blue skies above your head,
Shamrocks beneath your feet,
Laughter and joy aplenty.

Kindness from all you meet,
Good friends and kin to miss you
If ever you choose to roam,
And a path that's been cleared
By Angels themselves
To carry you safely home.

Love you and miss you, Bajanne   :'(
