Today so many of us are shocked and greatly saddened to learn that our dear blogging friend Madelief has lost her lovely husband, Jan. Our thoughts and love are with her and her beautiful daughters.

is not to die."


  1. What a warm gesture voor Madelief..

    Inge, my choice

  2. Dearest Rosemary, this sad post shows what a wonderful and thoughtful person you are. I am terribly sorry for Madelief and her family. Christa

  3. I read her blog this morning and was shocked and moved. Her gentle blog posts had never hinted at the heartache she and her family had been enduring for the past year. So sad.

  4. Such terrible news. Who would have thought this would hit Madelief.... I've been thinking of her and her daughters all day....

  5. I have been feeling so sad since reading Madelief's news today. Her family have been in our thoughts often over the past few months.

    I hope she's okay. I now feel really sad. I knew a friend who was really kind to me who died.
