Our Phoenix

It is a year today since our lovely, kind and funny Phoenix died. I'm sure lots of you will remember her many irreverent threads.

Sadly, she wasn't a member of GN when she died but had been here from the beginning.

Maw, who is also sadly no longer a member, has been in touch with the lovely person who helped care for and is happy to pass on any messages of remembrance.

Personally, I am going to complain the my ex son in law is still hale and heart despite the spell she wrote.

Remembering Phoenix today, she always had a way of brightening a day.
I still have a copy of the rhyme she wrote for you kitty.

Harri, I've searched for mine and can't find it, would you mind posting it.

She was irrepressible and a joy to know, even if it was only online.

Always think of her and her sense of fun when I play Pata Pata, I downloaded it on her recommendation.
Rest in peace.

Phoenix, still sadly missed on here. There has been no humour like hers since her departure.

My attempt to grow some mini sunflowers for her today was a total failure! It’s impossible to think of her without a smile 😃

I very rarely look at my Montbretia without thinking of her.
Some years ago I wanted to know if they would be ok to move.
Her reply was you could boil the bloody things and not kill them 😄
What a wordsmith she was.

My sunflower for Phoenix

The Phoenix's of this world are not gone, whilst so many remember them with a smile or sometimes even a chuckle

I was so pleased when Phoenix GN name was the first thread I spotted when I switched on this morning. (Jut like old times)

Thank you, Kitty flowers.

I have her toast to the Gammon saved, and think of her as I am cooking the flipping things at Christmas, she brought joy to a lot of people.

Remembering dear Phoenix 💐💐💐

I was thinking of her yesterday, but had no idea it was a whole year since she died. RIP x

I did not have the pleasure of "knowing " Phoenix but I know so many of you loved her. I hope today is full of happy memories for you albeit on a sad day.

Having a quiet moment of remembering dear Phoenix. 🕊

Such a joy to have known this lady GN is a sad place without her x

TillyTrotter Fri 19-Aug-22 09:00:31

Then I danced like a crazy thing to the glorious Pata Pata 🎶

Damp squid, boiling monbretias…she had a wonderful sense of humour and lively wit. RIP dear Phoenix.
