This is not a cheerful post. I was thinking about the uncertainty we all felt about our lovely Tessa. I was very ill recently, Van had her cancer scare and now Carole is not good.

When I was ill I spoke to my nearest ad dearest and asked them to post on this site if anything happened to me, just so people were not left wondering. Maybe we should all do that? Though I profoundly hope none of us need to use the favour we have asked it will at least stop that awful feeling of uncertainty. Just a thought.

    A sad post indeed. But jacee is right, This would stop people being left wondering what has happened to a friend. And we are all friends on this site, even if we do not post often there is still a warm feeling in getting to know each other and knowing that we can always seek each other out for encouragement. I have bookmarked the page and asked my lady to do the same so she can notofy anybody who might miss me.

    Hi Jacee and Andy

    It is a sad thought to have but also a thoughtful one. Just stops all the worry and speculation.

    I hope all will have a very long time still posting here.

    So sorry you have been really poorly Jacee and hope you are feeling much better now.

    I shall just pop in from time to time.

    Take good care and keep on breathing.

    On another forum, a group of us started to worry when one person went missing. It turned out he had been seriously ill in hospital. After that, we each gave a phone number to a member we trusted so that if we went silent that person could phone to ask if we were okay.

    It has really worked.

    My mate phoned me when I suddenly disappeared for a day - it was good to know that someone would have been there.

    Not all jobs in life are pleasant ones. This is a contingency plan we all hope we will not need. But should all have in place. I have asked my son to bookmark the page.

    Mine are not as IT-interested as I am, I think they'd never find it. :?

    Hi Stitch - do what I did. Copy and paste the link into a tab they open on their own computer (in hubby's case in his own profile) and then when the page appears, bookmark it. They will find it easily enough then.

    Wasnt it nice that jacee could keep in touch with Carol when she was in hospital. Lovely idea so that people don't just disappear. Cant the moderators hold a confidential list of contact numbers?

    Most of us have already exchanged e mail and phone numbers with each other, and have also passed details on to nearest and dearest to act and inform on our behalf should we be taken ill. This was all done at the start of the year. If you or other newcomers wish to do the same, you are welcome to pass your details on too. This is how Jacee was able to contact Carole in the first place, and Carole was then able to pass details of the Hospice number back to us.
