So sorry to hear this news. Your Mum was a great contributor to this forum and gave invaluable advice. She had a lovely sense of humour too!

Best wishes to you and yours at this difficult time.

Will,

I dont know what to say.

The tears are still pouring down my face with her loss.

There is nothing that any of us can say to take the pain away that you feel now, but there is some consolation in knowing that she was loved and respected by us, that she went without pain and you were able to say goodbye.

My OH father was diagnosed with a rare cancer in June ( 5 or 6 years ago ) the said it needed treatment or he would not live more than 2 or 3 years imediatly he had cemo and it distroyed him. He did not know who he was where he was.. and sadly he died 2 months into his treatment on his wifes birthday. I saw him the day before his treatment and i was not there at the end.

Cancer is a very cruel illness, i make a regular donation to Cancer research.

Thanks for the address i will pop a card in the post and if there is anything else i can do please let me know as i am not 2 far away.

Will, I'm so sorry to hear your sad news.
although I only joined this forum 4 months ago your mum's posts made me laugh out loud and she stood out as one of the most helpful, generous and friendly people here.
she very kindly sent me a seed propagator a little while ago – I'll be thinking of her every time I use it.

Will,

We were so sorry to hear the news.  Your mother was such a friendly and helpful person, and she'll be greatly missed by an extraordinarily large circle of friends and acquaintances, including so many "virtual" friends that she helped with advice and encouragement.

I too must echo the thoughts of others,this will be one very missed lady,she sent me some seeds too,they have just popped through today. Thre is little  one can say to help you with your feelings just now  but please accept my love and very sincere good wishes.In the short time I have been in the forum your Mum has been a real help to me, but more important than that her upbeat attitude and her very positive approach has left it's mark. I feel I am a better person for having known her. God Bless you all XX Jeannine

Will,

Further to my earlier post I have been moved to contact my local hospice to see what I can do for them in recognition of the help you and your mum received from a hospice. I found that they are doing a sponsored Midnight Walk in the summer and so I have signed up for this and will do it in memory of your mum.

I hope you will approve of this.

The joy she gave to us all, will stay with us for a very long time. I for one, will certainly miss chatting to her on here and MSN.
Gardening is the great leveller.

Sarah, you will always be with me on the allotment as my Jerusalem artichokes grow and flourish.  I will eat them thinking of you mate.  Safe journey darling.

Will, look after yourself now.  Take care son of sprout.

Been reading as a guest for two or three months and have read the postings about super sprout. This has prompted me to register so that can add my wishes to those of every one else. She sounded like a very fine inspiratioal lady

My love to you and your family, Will.
I'll miss your mum. She was one of the reasons why I enjoyed this forum so much.
She was always wise and funny.

I'm so sorry to hear of your sad loss. I say 'your', however, it is everyone's loss. Supersprout was an inspiration to us all and will be greatly missed.

Jo.

Oh, I just can’t believe it.  Dear Sarah.

Back in October I groused on her Black Mango Chutney thread that everyone was raving about it and I hadn’t made any.  Just a jokey remark – but she sent me a jar.  She was so kind and generous.

In return I shared with her a few special tomato seeds given to me by another generous person who has since joined A4A.  A couple of weeks ago I told Sarah that they were from Jeannine, and we joked about our impatience to plant them.  She said we would have to remind each other ….

Perhaps you will plant them for her, Will.  I have been where you are now, and I am sure things will be a little easier for you knowing how much your Mum was loved and respected, even by people who never met her face to face.

Words are not enough. I will be planting something on the plot this year to remind me of SS.
It's obvious how much she touched people, I will miss her very much.

Take care son of sprout!
