I have not been here for so long i can only get in a a guest. Forgotten my password etc. After the horrors of Chemo last year and the resulting major bout of Pneumonia I finally got my strength back. Sadly my husband Bill collapsed one morning in the shower . The paramedics got him back with the defibrillator thing but he had been gone too long and after he came too days later it was obvious he had suffered brain damage. He could not even swallow anymore and had to be fed through his nose which was so terrible to see. He was in a hospital about 40 miles away and then he got returned to our city hospital. So two and a half weeks after his collapse he died. I found I could not stand being in this house any longer and hated the loneliness I decided to sell and rent an apartment in the city where my daughter live. I am moving in about 2 weeks. It is hectic trying to pack by myself and it is not helped by a pill I must take for the B cancer . It make my joints and muscles very painful apart from the fact I also have arthritis as well. Looking forward to the move. getting a bigger apt than i need so I have room to continue my art. I have done about 4 pieces this year and is what has kept me going. Hopefully when I have moved I will be able to check in more often if I can figure out the password and user name thing. Sorry for such a depressing post.

I am so very sorry to read your message, my sincere condolences to you and hope that you feel more settled in your new home.

I have to say I was confused with the name Gill and your location as Ontario, then I thought is this Jill ont, who liked her garden, birds and mosaics?

Jill~ I certainly do remember you, and your beautiful mozaics! I am so sorry about your husband. That is such a tragedy and I offer you my sincere condolences. I think I would have done the same thing, i.e.; move out of the large home and move into something smaller and closer to family. Life changes and we have to change with it. You are so strong. Keep posting here on OGG- more of us are likely to remember you (Jill Ont) and will certainly enjoy chatting with you once again. I check in here about once a week.

Hello 'Jill' I was thinking about you not too long ago, remembering your mosaics/art. I do hope when you have settled in your new surroundings, you will post pictures of your mosaics. Sending good wishes for your return to health and condolences for your sad loss.

Dear Jill, what a difficult and testing time you have had. You must be a very strong woman to go through it all. Sending you healing, love and hope. Joanna xx
