- A Tribute To Fernanda-

It is with regret and much sadness that I write to inform you of the loss of our dear and lovely friend Fernanda, those of you that have been members on My Ovacome for a while will remember her, she hasn't been on for quite some time, you might remember Fernanda lived in Brazil but as her condition became worse she found it increasingly difficult to translate her post into English ...she was and still is sorely missed.

Our condolences, prayers and thoughts are for her family at this sad time.

-------A Tribute to Fernanda---------

----- 29-11-1968 - 20-08-2015 ------

Such sad news about our friend,

So brave a person right to the end.

She suffered a lot this was clear,

But still managed to allay our fear.

A source of help on this site,

Without a hint of her inward plight.

Always something encouraging to say,

Her loss is felt with utter dismay.

And now as we say goodbye,

We can't help but wonder why.

Taken too soon and far too young,

Our Brazilian friend, the battle not won.

Trials of life over, now free from pain,

Our loss on Earth is Heaven's gain.

She had a faith - that was plain to see,

An inward assurance to you and me.

If we take anything from this grief,

Life goes on - this is her belief.

Then one day we shall meet again,

With no more tears and no more pain.

  • I just wanted to thank you all for adding your condolences for the sad loss of Fernanda.

    i am sure Fernanda's family and friends are comforted by the fact that so many of her friends on this forum care....

    I have forwarded the tribute and a link to this page for them to read your comments for themselves, I know that it has been read by her husband Gabriel and other relatives and friends but appreciate there is a language barrier for them to leave a comment.

    Many of you might remember that Fernanda was Japanese living in Brazil and her husband is Brazilian therefore she has relatives and friends speaking Japanese and also Portuguese (the official language of Brazil)

    Thank you again for your lovely caring comments.

  • Thanks for this, Gwyn - just catching up after two weeks away with little computer access (none to this site), so hadn't heard this news. She will be missed! My thoughts and prayers are with her family today.
