-A Tribute to Jenny (jennybutler)-

I am sorry to have to tell you that our lovely friend Jenny died peacefully and without pain on the 31st of December ...her husband Paul and two daughters Kate and Lucy were with her holding her hands...her family are very aware that Jenny had many lovely friends on this forum (My Ovacome) she often mentioned to them the support she had ........

.......A Tribute to Jenny (jennybutler))............

.......................31-12-2014 ...............................

Another year another loss of a friend,

Jenny's life has now come to an end.

It is with sadness that I write this,

She was far too precious for us to miss.

We remember Jenny with her zest for life,

Her great tenacity and inward strife.

With a lot more living for her to do,

Willing to try most things to achieve this too.

She applied for a trial was accepted to go,

Last minute it changed and they said no.

Maybe in December was the suggestion,

If I'm still here, she thought with frustration.

Jenny's disappointment was plain to see,

How unfair is this and how can this be.

December came and on the very last day,

Jenny was gone so sad to say.

We shall miss Jenny and her loving care,

Somehow we felt she'd always be there.

Words aren't enough to express how we feel,

The sadness we experience is very real.

No longer in pain we take comfort from this,

But the reality is "lovely Jenny" we'll miss.

Our thoughts go now to her family so dear,

She loved them very much this was clear.

  • Jenny to me was full of life. I always thought how beautiful she was and of how this illness never took away her inward vitality too. I was shocked at this news Gwyn. There was a promise of another treatment and it's sad that this didn't happen if that's what she wanted. It's not for anyone else to make these huge decisions we can make for ourselves. My heartfelt condolences to Paul, Kate, Lucy and all who loved her. Xxx

  • Very sad to hear Jenny is gone. I really hoped that somehow she could beat the odds. I was always inspired by her posts, when she was trying bravely to fight the disease with other therapies, and she seemed to be succeeding at one point, before she had to accept more chemo. She will be sorely missed on this site as she was such a positive force and her warm heart shone though in her posts.
