RIP fairsCaPe

I woke up this morning to this very sad news in my email:

Jean died May 31 of cervical cancer.

Please tell anyone who knew Jean.
Women: please don't skip your pap smear.

Jean's blogs:

I'm in tears and I will miss her very much. Many condolences to her family.

I'm so sorry to hear that. She seemed like a very strong and caring person on her blog.

Hugs to you and my thoughts go out to her family.

Oh that is just so sad. I am so sorry that you lost your friend.

I'm very sorry to hear that sad news. I hope she had her anniversary party that she was so looking forward to.

Thanks for letting me know. I feel very sad. How can you be attached to someone you've never met? I hope she realized what an impact she had on everyone she touched. I will miss her.

Whilst she wasn't my first commenter, fairsCaPe was my first regular reader/commenter. It's a bit of a boost to the ego when you first have someone regularly coming to visit and read your stuff. I felt a connection simply because of that (not to mention getting to know her and her family through her blog).

It's sad but I have to say I was kind of expecting it when she commented she was in hospice care.

It is not possible to prepare yourself for loss, no matter how ill the person may be. I'm sorry for your loss.

caramaena said...

You're right Tracey. I knew it had to be coming but actually getting confirmation was still a shock.

oh. I am so sorry to hear that.

That is very sad :(
I sometimes followed over to her blog from your links, and worried that she hadn't updated in a while :(

The last time I read, I think she was sending a lock of hair to Japan. That's something i'd do.

Oh no!! I've been worrying about her and checking her blog but haven't since I've been on my little hiatus. This is so sad. If you have any link to her family, please send them my condolences and prayers!
