Hello everyone, it's me again. ( Glo ) Don't know how to tell you all, because, I usually finish up with a bit of good News. But not this time. Lynne private messaged me yesterday to tell me that our Trish, The Shropshire Lass has had a Hearf Attack and sadly passed away. I can't believe it. Yesterday morning I had a beautiful Christmas card, a present and a big long letter from her. Then yesterday afternoon Lynne messaged me to tell me this terrible news. We didn't talk on the phone because I can't get enough air to chat. But we keep in touch by letter. Trish was such a Lovely Lady. I never met her in person, but I class her as my Friend. I'm going to miss her so much. I feel so sorry for her Husband Derek and her Family, they must be absolutely devastated. I'm gutted ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ because I can't write her a letter to thank her for my present and Christmas card So last night I thanked her in my own way. I thanked her in my prayers ๐Ÿ™ But the most important thing I thanked her for was for being my Friend. Cheers Trish ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพ You're one Lovely Lass. Godbless you. I know we'll meet up one day ,in a much better place than this. My Heartfelt condolence' to Derek and Trish's Family. I don't know what else that I can say to you all . Except to say Take Care and Stay Safe. Thankyou also for being there for me. Hope you all have a good Christmas despite this Pandemic and this very sad news. Lots of Love and Virtual Hugs ๐Ÿค— to each and every one of you. Glo.โค๐Ÿ’•xxx

Oh how terribly sad, Iโ€™m so sorry. It always seems worse at this time of year. I lost my own mother when I was 17, God mother, mother and father in law at Christmas, so I know how you feel. My sincere condolences ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

Hi Smiler, Yes it does always seem worse to lose a Loved one at this time of the year. Im so sorry for your loss,especially at such a young age. I lost my Dad December 10th. It was my Mum's Birthday on Boxing Day, and she passed away on New Year's Eve. I lost my only Brother in the January. Christmas always used to be such a Fun time in our house. But now it's so different .Thankyou for your kind words

Although Trish wasn't Family, she was a Friend. She will be truly missed by a lot of people,especially me. โค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•

My mum and godmother were on the 12th, my godmother was a very dear friend too, we went through a lot together. In-laws 8th and 11th, so similar to you. Friends are sometimes even closer than family and I can see that Trish was very special to you. Sending โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

She was Special Smiler. ,I just can't believe it. I hadn't long opened my Little parcel that Trish had sent me, then I had a message off Lynne to say that Trish had passed away. I even texted Lynne back, because I thought Naw, there's a mistake here somewhere .But No there wasn't a mistake. She really was a Lovely Lady, with a Heart of Gold. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’•.

Oh noooo, Iโ€™m so so sad, Trish was such a support to me , we spoke many times such a positive lovely lady, my thoughts go out to her family, RIP Trish. Heaven has gained another angel

Thank you for sharing this heartbreaking news with us.

Trish was such a Lovely Lady and I'm really gonna miss her Funny Letters. It's just heartbreaking.Thankyou FlowerPrecious Lover.

So sad, I can understand your feeling of loss and grief. I lost my mum and husband just before a Christmas period, prayer is a great relief. Thinking of you. Sopsx

Yes Lynne put a post on yesterday, so very sad especially this time of the year , itโ€™s such a shock to those left behind , was Trish. a Member on here?

Gjkas profile image
Gjkas in reply to Hidden

Trish used to be a member. You'll probably know her by her username, the Shropshire Lass. I always used to call her The Lovely Lass. She was one real gutsy Lady, in the best possible way.She did the Parachute jump for the British Liver Foundation Charity. That's the kind of Lady she was. It's such a shock, from reading a letter that she had sent me, and having a chuckle about some of the things that she had said. Then just a few hours later to be told that she'd passed away.

I didn't know that Lynne had put a Post up yesterday, because I thought that she might have been too upset. I wouldn't have put one up otherwise ,I'm just so gutted. I feel so sorry for all of her Family.

It must have been a terrible shock for them. They must be absolutely devastated. Aww Bless Them. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Dearest Glo,Iโ€™m so sorry to hear about your good friend, Trish. Sending my sincerest condolences at this tragic time.

I wasn't expecting anything ,I can't get it through my thick skull that I won't be writing to her anymore.

Gotta go Barry. You Stay Safe. โค๐Ÿ˜˜ x

I'm really sorry to hear this Glo, I didn't know Trish but I really feel for her family and friends, particularly at this time of year and with everything else that is going on. Condolences to them all and to you Glo. RIP Trish. ๐Ÿ™ xx

Trish was such a Lovely Lady Springcross. Her Family must be absolutely devastated. My Heart โค goes out to them all at this very difficult time.The last letter she wrote to me a couple of days ago, she ended her letter saying that she was, Oh so tired. She's peacefully sleeping now though. Trish must have passed away just a few hours after posting my letter and my Little Christmas Pressy. ๐Ÿ™Oh God, I could cry my eyes out. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ

Yes, no doubt they are devastated, completely stunned - it's such a cruel world Glo isn't it. It's been such a shock for you too. The sad thing is there's nothing anyone can do about it as it's way beyond our control. I pray her family find the strength to cope with this awful news. ๐Ÿ™ Take care Glo - thinking of you. xx

Thankyou so much Springcross. I think that I'm gonna be opening my Christmas Pressy from Trish tonight. It's there in front of the Christmas tree, just sort of looking at me and saying, Cmon then Glo ,open me up.

I'm so glad that I sent her one from me, before she went to sleep. I know that she received it, because she told me in her letter.

It really is a Cruel World, you're right .Stay Safe and Thankyou for thinking of me. โคโš˜ xx

Open it up Glo, it might make you feel better. You stay safe too. ๐Ÿ’› xx

Gjkas profile image
Gjkas in reply to springcross

Hi Springcross, I didn't open it up before I went to bed. But I couldn't sleep, so I got up and opened it.OMG, I wish that I could show it to you. It's a beautiful 18 in length necklace ,made with Swarovski crystals. It has a gorgeous, twinkle gemstone hanging from it ..Whitchever way you turn it,it's shining and Twinkling. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ.

The other Little box attached to the parcel was a little notebook. The hardcover on the outside of the book is the exact same picture on the one I sent to Trish. Beautiful Robins in a tree. The colours are lovely. It was for me to make notes in,so that when I wrote to her I wouldn't forget to tell her. Awww bloody hell. ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ

The press I sent Trish was 2 beautiful cushion covers.cream and pale green. On the covers were handwritten .

Never stop dreaming. That's what she used to say to me,when I was in a lot of pain.

NEVER STOP DREAMING GLO,

YOULL GET THERE.

Oรฒoh I wish that she was here so that I could thank her.

But this necklace is way beyond what I was expecting. Its really lovely .

I wasn't expecting anything really.

But I will treasure this Pressy from Trish Forever and Ever.

I won't say what Trish wrote in my letter and my Little note.

Some bits are a bit sad,some bits are Happy. But everything is personal.

Just between Trish and Me.๐Ÿคโค๐Ÿ’•x

Thankyou for giving me that little shove to open it,that just what I needed.

Take Care and look after yourself Springcross .Love Glo.๐Ÿ’› xx

springcross in reply to Gjkas

That sounds beautiful Glo, something to treasure forever and the notebook with the Robins on made me go a little goosey as I believe (and I'm not alone in this) that they have a spiritual significance. I would imagine Trish would have been so pleased that you like your presents and what a shame she's not here in person to tell you so. Thanks for telling me about them Glo and take care. ๐Ÿ’› xx

Gjkas in reply to springcross

It is so beautiful. Even the way that Trish wrapped it up was Lovely. It was wrapped in plain gold coloured wrapping paper, with a Red Heart that she wrote a little message with my name on, and a little Red bow attached to it. You are right about the Robins having a spiritual significance .The saying goes that.,When a Robin comes to call, it means that a Loved one that have passed away, have come to visit.

How uncanny is that.

Perhaps Trish paid me a visit, even though I didn't see her. ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ.๐Ÿ™โš˜

Stranger things have happened.

You Take Care and Stay Safe.

Thankyou Springcross..About this time every year, a Robin comes to call. He sits on the Little Patio Table just outside our back window. Last year I was having a particular bad time of it. I was sat in the corner by the window in our extension, crying my eyes out, because I still miss my Mum and Dad who passed away in December. My Hubby said "Glo quick, look out of the window"The Robin was there again, sat on the Patio Table..

Yes I believe in the spiritual significance of the Robin. ๐Ÿ™โค.

I've got to pull myself together. I don't know how, but I know that I have to. Take Care. ๐Ÿ’– xx

There's so many Lovely people on here and I don't want them to think that I'm ignoring them. I've been trying to get on here all afternoon, but I'm having problems. My email address, my Password, my Username. That's all I've been getting up on here. I'm fed up as it is. I don't need all that.Im so very glad that I got hold of you ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž.

Yes, Glo messaged me to say she was having problems and then also that she was leaving. I will be sorry she is no longer on here but I do understand why.

Hi Springcross. Yes I really mean it. My mind is made up. I'm gonna miss people like you, Bazzak and a lot of other Lovely people on here, but I think it's best that I go.

I can't get my head around what happened to Trish.Im finding it really, really hard. Just been looking at another card that she sent me in August this year, just after I had my OP. There's a mug in a saucer on it and it says on there,

" Sending you a mugfull of Hugs ".

I've got so many lovely Little momentoes of Trish. I'm gonna put them all in my Little momento drawer. My Hubby John thinks that I should finish as well. But like he said ,

it's my decision. I'm not finishing just because of the problem of getting on here, although it doesn't help.

I'm finishing because I want to. I'll let Lynne know that John don't want any phone calls or letters coming to our house. But Springcross Thankyou so much for your help.

Take care of yourself and have yourself a Lovely Christmas.

Oops, before I forget, looks like we might be having another Great Grandchild in 2021.

That'll make it 11๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ถ Great Grandchildren.

Trish haven't been on here for quite a while. But a lot of people remember her for numerous reasons, especially her Parachute jump. It was cancelled 3 times because of the poor weather conditions. Poor old Trish was a bag of nerves by the time the weather was okay for the jump. But she did it and she loved it. But she said that she don't think that she would do it again, because she was shaking like a jelly for a couple of weeks after.I used to tell her to ease up a bit. But I don't think that she did. If anyone wanted help or advice, Trish would do what she could, to help them. That's what she was like .But she's resting in peace now

Take Care and Stay Safe. โš˜๐Ÿ’› x

GloWe have sadly lost a true friend. She was beautiful inside and out. Always there for others, forgetting her own worries to help someone else. I am heartbroken but it must be so much harder for Derek and her beautiful family who she loved dearly. I feel honoured to call Trish my friend. She will still be looking after everyone in her own beautiful way. We were going to meet up this year but covid-19 put paid to that. So next year was going to be the year to get together.Trish, Me , Steph and Jane. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. I am trying to remember the fun loving, loyal friend she was

Here for always. All my love Lynne xxxx โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’œโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’œ

I am going to miss Trish so so much. I just can't get it in my head that I won't speak to her again. I will never ever forget the kindness she always gave me. I'd only messaged her on Wednesday morning and then Derek phoned me Wednesday afternoon that she had sadly passed away from a heart attack on Tuesday. I just want to be there for her family without mithering them too much.Night night God bless Glo

Lynne I don't know what to say, I still can't get my head around it. Reading the letter she sent me, then you messaging me to tell me that she passed away just a couple of hours later. It's unreal to say the least. I had asked her to lend me Merlin

( her Kitten) to see if he could work some magic for me . Laughingly she agreed. ๐Ÿ’ฆ

I feel full of sorrow for losing her.

I feel so sorry for Derek and Trish "s Family,they must be absolutely devastated. Such a shock for them all.

She told me that she was feeling really tired. I told her to ease up a bit,but you know Trish .She was like a busy little Bee. Perhaps that was the beginning of the end when she was feeling so very tired.

Aww Bless her. She must have posted my Pressy not long before she passed away.

Lynne the pressy that Trish sent me is absolutely gorgeous. Its so beautiful.

And the Little note book that came with it had a Little Robin in a tree on it. Exactly the same as the one I sent Trish. She sent me the notebook so that I could jot down things that were happening here at home. So that I could tell her later.๐Ÿ—’๐Ÿ–Š

If you ever manage to visit us next year, I'll show you

She's sleeping peacefully now, Bless Her.

I'll never forget the Little Shropshire Lass, Do you remember that I used to call her the Lovely Lass. She is and always will be.

The Lovely Little Shropshire Lass to me.

Still can't believe it. Im sorry I messaged you back to ask you, if you were sure about what Derek had told you. I hope I didn't upset you. But I just couldn't believe what you said.

Hi GloI'm so sorry it's took me so long to get back to you but I've been having problems logging on etc. Trish was beautiful inside and out. I sent her a message on Wednesday morning, thought it strange that she didn't reply and then Derek phoned me with the devastating news that our Trish, The Shropshire Lass had had a heart attack on Tuesday and had very sadly passed away. I just can't comprehend that I will never message or speak to our beautiful friend Trish again. I'm absolutely heartbroken but it must be so much harder for Derek and her beautiful family. I asked Derek did he want me to put a post up and he replied yes. So I put one on here and one on the liver forum.
