We were never given the privilege of meeting you or your precious Janie, but we shared many conversations here in the forum. May you be comforted by knowing that Janie left this earth knowing that she was your love, and that she'll be waiting for you to join her.

God Bless You,

Though we never got to meet you or your wonderful wife. As a fellow motorcyclist, out heart goes out to you and your family. You and your family will be in our prayers and please know that Jane will never be forgotten.

I offer my sincerest condolences for your loss.

At times life is very unkind. My prayers are offered.

Dearest PoppyMoto,

It was you and Jane that were instrumental in our joining the Polar Bears back in 2002.  You always welcomed us to sit with you guys whenever possible.  Janey's wonderful, loving hugs will always be remembered.  Her acceptance of people for what they are, and no expectations of changing them was a wonderful aspect of her personality.  We sure could take a page from her book in her utter joy of life. 

Her smile was so infectious, and her zeal for riding, even when it got bitter cold, was an example to us all. 

Our hearts go out to you and your family.  Their contributions to the service (the eulogies and singing) were outstanding!  I kept trying to picture myself in their shoes, and I know I wouldn't have had the strength to do it.  God Bless them - it is something they will long carry with them - what they said and did.  The father was a "honey of a guy", as you know; I gave him a big hug as we were leaving, and said, "Honey, that was a beautiful service!"  He hugged me and thanked me with a chuckle.  How wonderful he knew Janey so well! 

Thank you, Walt, for everything.  I believe that our loved ones, once they've passed on, can be with us in the speed of a thought.  With that in mind, it could be easy to think she is still there with you - in some form.  I know she's certainly still in your heart - forever. 

Prayers go out to you and yours, and if there's anything we can do, you've got our number.  We love you, big guy. 

God Bless you,

Arms around,

Debbie & Clyde


Wonderfully stated Debbie.

Sail on friend




From: DebbieS81


Thanks, Meteorman.

I truly believe that.  I also believe that once separated, when we are reunited, it will be like only a moment in time has elapsed.  Although here on Earth, it may seem like an eternity, I think that when you finally are reunited, it's like only a minute has passed, with no long time of waiting and all sadness will be gone.... only joy.

Have you done any sailing lately?  Last time I was sailing was about 6 years ago now, I reckon...

Our best to you and Deb.

Walt -

I'm so sorry to hear the news about Janie - I saw a post on Denny's forum.     I've read so often about all the good times that the two of you shared.   May the grace of God be with you and your family.

Thank you for saying - Christ has Risen. That he has. I can only pray that I will be in Heaven with my love ones. My mother died in April at the age of 82. When I was young I thought 30 was getting old. Now at 50 I say that my mother had many years to go and that at 82 she died too young of COPD.
My 24 year old daughter was sleeping the other night and said that my mother came and talked to her. My mother told her that she is working with Angels now and is looking down on us. She sees us grieving and wishes the best for us.
I got out my old Psyc book from college and was reading about "Sleep." I figured that she was in Stage 4 sleep. Do I believe she talked to my mother? I really don't know. The mind can play many tricks on us. Jamie called me at 5:30am crying about it all. So I just comfort her and told her to believe and trust in the Lord.
I have prayed for Walt over his lost and brought it up at our Church a few weeks back. Prayers do help in many ways.
Again thank you for mentioning our Risen Savior in your post.
I'm so sorry Walter. But I think you are brave to talk about it and maybe that helps. How is the other lady going, MaryAnn I think it was?
