Thanks Dawnie and how lovely that they thought to send a message to this thread. I have been following the thread on Facebook and they seem a lovely family. Shall be thinking of Julie and her family on Thursday.

It's good to have it confirmed that the support people receive in their time of need helps them in some small way, and that they have spoken of it to their families.

Nice that Julie's sister found time to thank folks for the messages etc, I hope she and the family will find comfort in the fact that Julie was well respected and loved by so many 'strangers' many of whom became friends


Rest in peace Julie, hope Thursday is just the way you would want it

It's 'our' Jules good bye tomorrow

I wondered who might be happy to start a monthly direct debit (to Cancer Reasearch UK) on this day?

I'm going to do this tomorrow in our friends name and also for all the lovely people we have lost

It's not much each month, but it will help...give what you can, .50p £1 etc

Special thoughts of dear Julie and all her friends and family on this very sad day.


If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you care for me, and how much I care for you,
and each time that you think of me I know you’ll miss me too;

But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready in heaven far above,
and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,
for all life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for and so much yet to do.
it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while,
I’d say goodbye and hug you and maybe see you smile.

But then I fully realised that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow.
I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me, from His great golden throne,
He said, "This is eternity and all I’ve promised you,
Today your life on earth is past but here it’s starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last.
and since each day’s the same, there’s no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful, so trusting, so true.
Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
And you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?"

So if tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
for every time you think of me, please know I’m in your heart.

So, our Jules with 'urns' ( or jugs as I used to call her) has gone :-(


God bless her and love to her family, sister Wendy, partner and two young children


How I miss talking with her.


Ive set up the direct debit to Cancer Research UK, today, at the very moment of her funeral....I will always remember her, and my bank statement will be a reminder of Jules each month

Gins....I didn't know Julie personally...........but i found her thread sooo inspirational, she touched my heart in more ways than you will ever know.

She had such a fighting spirit.

So sorry that you have lost a close friend.

You take care now. Prickles. xx

Gins., i don't do Facebook so i don't quite understand.

I searched high and low for something that i thought appropriate for Julie's special day.

I found that poem.

If that poem bought comfort to any of Julie's close friends or family today..........i will be soo delighted.
