Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry to tell you that NAN7 died on 9th December '23. 
Nan7 joined us in 2021, so her journey wasn't long but a difficult one. She told me in October that there was nothing more they could do and she was moving into St. John's Hospice, which was near her home.
We had kept in contact until recently when she sent me her goodbye message. She was well looked after in the hospice seeing Howard and the family daily.

 As I am in Scotland, I can't be there at her funeral but if anyone is in Doncaster and wants to pay their respects, please get in touch with me for details.

Nan7 (Helen) was a lovely lady who decided not to post near the end of life because she did not want to upset new members and she said she didn't know what to say, so asked me to post for her after she died!

  • Helen, was a kind , gentle soul ,it is sad, more so this time of the year.

    Thoughts are with all her family,, another bright star, at Christmas,
