Nanette Mary: Greetings to you all from Johannesburg. I have come on a quick visit to see my dear sister Loraine who is in an old-age-home and is very fragile .. and also my brother and his family in Jhb. It is just over 3 weeks since my husband died. When I get back to Ireland, I hope to respond to all the e.mails received and also to try and catch up with reading and reviewing. Once again, I thank all those who have surrounded me with love, thought and prayers during the past few months. May God bless and reward you all for this kindness.
Love from .... Nanette Mary.

Nanette Mary: My dear husband, Geoffrey, died in our home on Friday, the 9th of September - six months to the day from when he was told that he had a very rare form of Cancer that is aggressive and spreads rapidly.
A week before the end, the Cancer got to his brain and yet, through a miracle of God's grace, on Tuesday, when he was unconscious, when the Priest brought him Holy Communion, the moment he came into the room carrying the Blessed Sacrament, Geoff regained consciousness and he answered all the prayers himself. He then asked that everyone who was in the house should come to him and, although so weak and with his eyes closed, he spoke the most beautiful words. I am not yet conversant with Facebook but my son has opened a page under my name and onto it he has put photographs and even videos of Geoff speaking his last words. My thanks go out to all my friends on FanStory who have prayed for Geoff during the past few months. May God bless and reward you all for such love and kindness.
From .... Nanette Mary.

    koneart: This is sad news--heart breaking. He is gone now but always in God's heart and will be remembered. John 5:28, 29. See Revelation 21:4. Death is a nasty enemy! Be strong...Best wishes.

    Pussinoots13: Pussinboots: I am sorry that you lost your husband. I lost mine when my girls were only little. He died in a car accident.I think until you death really hits you like that, others do not really understand what you go through. I still remember that day, having 2 children I had to keep going. You have friends on F/S that support you, I offer my support as well. :)

Nanette Mary: For the past few months, I have had very little time to come to FanStory. My husband is dying from Cancer and I am caring for him - day and night - as, in the words of what he told his Doctor, he just wants to die at home which has been a tradition in his family for over a thousand years. A Nurse comes for an hour each day to attend to him and many Nurses call during the week to see him and keep track of his condition. My reason for adding this note is to thank all the wonderful Members of FanStory who know about him, for all the love, thoughts, kindness and prayers for both of us.
My prayer for him is simply - God's Will be done - and for the grace of a good and holy death. He has suffered so much for so many years and yet he is facing what lies ahead with great fortitude, maintaining his sense of humour and expressing his gratitude for all that is done for him. Love from .. Nanette Mary.

    redrider6612: May God strengthen you through this storm. I'll keep you both in my prayers.

    Juliette Chamberlain: Dear Nanette Mary,

    I think of you both often, and of course, continue to remember you around the Throne of Grace.
    It is a joy to read that your husband retains his sense of humour.

    For some reason the verse the Lord keeps reminding me of is: 'And shall not the God of all the earth do right? We both know that He will!

    With much love,

    August 26, 2011 at 9:04AM
    Celtic~Soul: Simply heartbreaking, Nanette Mary. My mother had cancer and died at home--thanks to a caring hospice program that came in to support my dad. May your husband's remaining time and passing be peaceful. And don't neglect yourself, Nanette Mary. If you can take a few quiet moments every day to go for a short walk or something similar that will help you stay centered and give you a respite. Stay strong.

    LateBloomer: Dear Nanette Mary, As always you stand tall and strong with grace and elegance, a true Lady. Enjoy today as tomorrow belongs to God.
    With love and prayers, LateBloomer

Nanette Mary: I wish to extend my heartfelt appreciation to all who have read my poem ...
"Enough .... Enough ...!" and taken to heart, the need for us all to pray, not only for the victims of such atrocities as I have described but also for the perpetrators of such evil. Only the grace of God can change the hearts of such people and dispel their dark thinking and beliefs.
Thank you all. Bless you.
Love from .... Nanette Mary.

    Nanette Mary: WOW !!! Last night, a part broke under my computer and I couldn't get on line. Only now, at nearly 11 p.m. on Old Year's Night, have I been able to get connected and I am quite overcome at the realisation that my Christmas Poem has won the Contest. As yet, I have not been able to reply to so many reviews due to all the upheavals here - many of which have been caused by the big freeze which is the worst on record.
    THANK YOU SO MUCH ... Another Jim - Julia James - Starkat - Shariannegaylee - Rosah - Warren Rodgers - Flygirl254 - Katz Meow - Late Bloomer and Gungalo.
    Love from .... Nanette Mary.

Nanette Mary: In December, it will be 5 years since I became a Member of FanStory. Prior to that, I could never have imagined being part of an international family of writers such as we are and I thank whoever visits my file as well as all those who have read and reviewed my writing.
Some of my friends here have got my e.mail address. I have found out that it has been hijacked and is being used for the marketing of various unmentionables. Whoever is responsible even sends such things to me as being from my own e.mail address.
If any of you receive an e.mail that you do not recognise as being from me, please do let me know.
I am still trying to get this sorted out.
With love to you all from .. Nanette Mary.
September 30, 2010 at 5:21PM
    Juliette Chamberlain: Nanette Mary, you are such a special and gifted lady, that it is truly a privelage to be counted as your friend.
    I look forward to seeing you name at the top of my reviews and revel in the wisdom which shines through all that you write.

    With much love,

    October 18, 2010 at 2:51PM
    LateBloomer: Oh Nanette Mary, What a terrible thing. I, too, have received e-mails addressed to me from myself which remain unopened--the same for my husband. When addressing e-mails to multiple people, I have begun to e-mail them as bcc's. This way, all e-mails are protected and remain private. This is useful when passing on jokes, news items, etc. to a group of people who will do the same, etc.

    Be well. Regards, LateBloomer

    miss joyce: Hello to you, Nanette Mary.
    I wanted to stop by briefly to give
    you thanks for the example you set and the inspiration you extend to
    those like myself whose writing is
    a new interest. I adore your work.
    I hope to get to your portfolio soon. I can learn much from a distinguished writer like yourself.
    God Bless!

    ulster3: Hello, Nanette Mary. I thought to update your page. You are loved. Rebecca
    July 29, 2011 at 11:19PM
    Nanette Mary: I address these few words to all my wonderful, loving and caring friends on FanStory. For the past six months - and more specifically during the past three months - I have had so little time to come to the computer and visit you all by reading your writing, your reviews and replies. This is due to the fact that I am caring for my dear husband who is dying from Cancer.
    Since the middle of last week, a Nurse comes in for an hour each day which is a big help. Added to that, I very seldom come to my own home page and today, for the first time, I have found your kind messages - Miss Joyce and Ulster3.
    May God bless and reward you all for your love, thoughts, prayers and concern during this time approaching the earthly end of the one who has been both Simon and Peter to me for so many, many years.
    With love and thanks to you all
    from ... Nanette Mary.
    July 31, 2011 at 8:03AM
    JesusLuvsU: God loves you so much! Don't you ever forget that! You and your husband are in my thoughts and prays! God bless... Caitlyn
