My condolences to the loved ones of Grannyb and all of her forum friends. May she Rest in Peace. I will always remember Grannyb as a cheerful, kind and warm person. She always assisted me on the forum when I was clumsy as she was very good with computers. She designed my Avatar. For one very last time – thank you Grannyb :gflower: .

Very very sad news! :cry:

I'll miss her on the Guessing Game where we had so much fun all these years!!

She'll leave a big emptiness all across the forum!

Farewell Barbara, RIP

:( I think if Grannyb wanted to to leave something, this would have been it. :(

"The Final Flight"
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life’s been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.


:gflower: :gflower: Going to miss you Grannyb. :(

Just as we loved GrannyB, she loved the forums/forumites :D :

Hi Susan

Remember my PM on 28 January 2009 when I wrote "Thanks very much! As I mentioned to bert I recently lost my husband so at times can be very lonely."

Well, one month later, this is not the case any more. This forum is the best thing that I could have come across. All the wonderful friendly people and animals keep me busy for hours.

I am also finding my way around very well now thanks to all the friendly advise. Everybody is always so willing to help.

If you would like to post this to one of the forums please feel free to do so.

Thanks again to all
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


We will miss her :cry:

Stunned by the news and thinking of all those who were dear to her and will miss her so much. I am one of the great number who benefited from her cheerful help and advice over the years. She was someone who was always so sympathetic to others' troubles and woes, yet never made much of her own. Rest in peace, granny - a forum friend, whom I would love to have met, yet very real.

I am so saddened by this news. :cry:

Whenever I saw grannyb's name on a thread, I expected kindness, or gentle humor. She really was one of the stalwarts on the webcams.

The forum was so much richer for her presence.

My condolences to those who will miss her. We most certainly will.
