Joan,

Wanted to take a few moments and tell you that I, and I am sure others would agree, that you will be sadly missed as a moderator. You did a great job and helping keep everyone informed. I hope and will say a ew words for you and your family and wish all of you the best. We are glad that you will still be popping in and out of here as we would miss you so.

Dear Joan

I really hope you will be able to post from time to time as your voice would be sorely missed by us all. You have been an outstanding moderator and it has been the greatest pleasure working with you. As we are in the same time zone, your constant support was invaluable. Of all your many virtues I have especially appreciated your wry sense of humour. It seems that however dire the situation you can squeeze a laugh out of it at some point, the right point, and make everything easier to deal with.


In Friendship

Joan you have been a lifeline for so many here. I doubt you even realize the extent of the impact you have made. I hope you will still be able to manage to have some free time to join in with us.

Thank you for all the support and training. It has been great getting to know you on an entirely different level. Keep those pictures coming. I need my monthly fix.

Thank you all very much for your lovely posts :foryou:

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Moderator here and have learned so much from everyone else that I will always be grateful that I found this site back in November 2005 when I knew so little about this disease.

Im not sure if Joanne, the site founder and owner, realises just how much of a difference this place has made to so many people around the world. It has literally been a lifeline for so many. So a big thank you to her for setting it up and maintaining it all these years and all the other Mods and members who have done such a wonderful job to make it the safe, welcoming, professional, helpful and warm place that it is.

I will still be around and posting. I still havent got out of the habit of logging on at 6.30am every morning before work (though I tried! :lol:). Its a bit like missing an old, quiet friend sitting in the corner of my bedroom! :hehe:

Im heading off shortly to my grandsons 'Naming Ceremony'. Im reading a little poem at it for him. Thought you might like to hear it first.....

Being Small by John Maguire

Sometimes I just hate being small,
When everybody else is tall,
I think the world is most unfair
With me down here and them up there.

It’s awful when a juicy peach
Is in a bowl far out of reach
Or parents have safely put away
The toys with which I want to play.

It’s terrible to have to stretch
For everything you want to fetch
While bigger people help themselves
To things from off the highest shelves.

Perhaps it might be less unfair
If they were kind of stuck up there
And had to wait till I came round
To give them things from off the ground;

But no, they can easily bend,
To fetch and carry, make and mend,
While if I want to reach that cup,
I have no way of bending up!


Cute, eh? :hehe:
Much love and catch you all later
Joan:rose:

Oh Joan!!!! Yes it is cute but it made me laugh so so much. Our cleaning lady is only 1m45 and has so so much trouble reaching stuff and keeps wondering why we have stuff that's so high up :rotfl::rotfl: just made me laugh
