So sorry to hear about snoggle she was v kind to me when I was new a lovely brave lady this is a v sad thing to happen rip snoogle x
I am so sorry to hear this, not having been on the forums for a month or two. Jennifer and i walked a similar path at times, and had children the same age. I met her briefly 'in the flesh' at Kay's funeral at Guildford Crem. How strange, but somehow reassuring, that she should be sent off from the same place.
Danny i feel so sorry for you and your children and family. I am sure Jennifer is very much 'present' in your home and your children and always will be.
Snoogle's (Jennifer's) Funeral will be held at 11am on Friday 18th March 2011 at the Guildford Crematorium and forum members who 'knew' Jennfier are most welcome to attend.
The addresse is:
*Guildford Crematorium, New Pond Road, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 3DB. (The Crematorium is situated on the B3000 road between Guildford and Godalming town centres, 2 miles south of Guildford.)
Please Note: Jennifer's wishes were that there would be no flowers (except from her Dad, Husband and Children). Donations in lieu of flowers can be made by Cheque payable to "Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice" which can be sent to The Co-Operative Funeralcare, 231 Shawfield Road, Ash Vale, GU12 5DL or donated via the Hospice's website using the "in memory" option.
I met Snoogle here on this site and she was so inspiring to me and so many other women. I was able to tell her this on one of her last postings when she was going off to London wth you for a very special weekend.
A courageous lady I was glad to meet.
Danny you were indeed lucky to have spent so many years together but I know you both would have wished for many many more...
She will always be with you and your family.
Hug each other tightly and know she will be watching you so carefully...
My deepest sympathy to you at this very raw time.
So sorry to read your moving tribute to your dear wife. Like others, I can't believe she went so quickly, I will miss her on the forum.
God bless you and your family.
So very sad to hear of Jennifer's passing. She was of great support to me when we were going through chemo together 2 years ago. A beautiful person taken too soon by this cruel disease.
Rest easy Snoogle.....
Danny, so very very sorry to read of the loss of your wife to this evil disease. Wishing you the strength to get through this tragic time. Love to you, your children, family and friends
Devastated to hear the news. I read right through the liver secs thread on which Jennifter posted and she was truly inspirational. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Another taken far too young by this horrible disease x
I'm sorry I didn't know your Jenny, although your tribute Danny, clearly shows what a remarkable woman she was and the loving legacy she leaves with you and your children. I've posted a copy of an A A Milne quote that I truly believe encapsulates comforting words when we need it most.
I hope it brings you, your children and friends some comfort too.
"If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you."
— A.A. Milne
My heart goes out to you and your family at this sad time. I don't have anything else I can put into words, because words just aren't enough.
I'm so very sorry to read this news. My sincere condolences to you Danny, your children, family and friends.
Rest in Peace Jennifer. With Love. xx
What a lovely tribute to your beautiful wife. As you say even though it was expected and she was very brave to come on chat just a few weeks ago - still had her sense of humour and trying to make you a domestic godness in a short period of time.
My thoughts are with you, your children and family. I'm sending you my deepest condolences.
Take good care of yourselves.
Dear Danny and family.
I am very sad to hear your news. I used to talk to Jennifer when I was first diagnosed and going through Taxotere.
I am sure you and your family will have some happy memories of your life together and I hope they will be a comfort to you in time.
Your post is a moving tribute to your love and I am sure she would be proud of it.
All the best
I am shocked at how quickly snoogle has gone downhill, it was only earlier this month that she was 'chatting' on livechat with such bravery. I am so devastated that this cruel disease has done its worst again!
Danny and all of Jennifer's family and friends- I can't put into words how sorry I am to hear this news. She expressed your son's fear that she wouldn't be there for his birthday I am gutted that she was taken so soon, before she had time to do all of the last things she was planning to do.
I wish you and the children all of the strength that you will need to cope with life without Jennifer.
My thoughts are with you
Danny, thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful post when your heart must be breaking. Jennifer will be very missed here, but I know her love and spirit will live on through her much cherished children.
I only knew snoogle for a short time but in that time she made a big impression. Her bravery and her love and concern for her family shone through.
I know at the moment the pain is huge but try to hold on to all the very happy memories. I know of one of her last great days and that was going to the show with you and meeting Michael Crawford, reading about it just made me smile and I know she wanted it to be one of your happy memory bank.
You did all that you could and you did it well, she will have known you were with her at her final breath just as she knew what a lovely husband you were and how well you are going to continue to be a great Dad, she had every faith in you, so try to hold onto that in these tough days.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, your children and Jennifers friends and family. She will be missed on these forums too.Take strength from her love, that will never go.
With love Julie
RIP Snoogle/Jennifer xx
Joining with many others in sending love and thoughts to all the family.
I met Snoogle once, last year... at a bc funeral in Guildford.
May you find some consolation as you grieve, adjust, and begin to share the good memories.
Snoggle offered me such support over the past year and I can't really find the words now. May you find strength to carry on knowing she loved you and your children dearly.
Dear Danny and all Jennifer's family,
I was so touched by your beautiful tribute to Snoogle. I remember reading some of her posts recently and felt so sad for her situation and impressed with the way she faced up to things. Sincere sympathy to you all,
To Danny and all the family and friends,
There is nothing I can say apart from to send you all my deepest condolences and pray that you have the strength to get through this most difficult of times and will then hold the memories dear to you forever. I know how much your recent trip to London meant to Jennifer and am so glad you were able to make the trip. The enjoyment shone through Snoogle's post afterwards.
I 'chatted' a few times when Snoogle was initially diagnosed with mets, even though mine are different, and then more latterly on live chat. She will be missed there but obviously not one iota as much as you will miss her.
Take care and cherish the memories.
I am saddened and shocked by this. It all seemed to happen so quickly in the end.
I had a few private messages from jennifer only a few weeks ago. She had accepted her lot but was hoping for time.
Her final thoughts to your children will live on, through you and through the love you had together.
It sounds as if she was very lucky to have you Danny, as you were lucky to have had her. Through the years, the fact that you were there for her as she took her dying breath, will offer you and your children immense comfort. There was nothing more you could do.
Danny, hold your children tight. My Mum died of this disease when I was a child. Memories and love do live on in your heart, even when other memories fade. Your lovely Jennifer is alive every day in your children.
Condolences to you and all of her family and friends.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I got to know Jennifer recently and exchanged a few emails. She was really helpful and supportive.
Condolences to you, your family and everyone who knew her.
Love and hugs
So sad to hear this news, Jennifer will be sadly missed on these forums.
My thoughts are with you Danny and your family at this very sad and difficult time.
God Bless Jennifer
Hi, my condolences to you & your kids, I`d "met" Jennifer 2yrs ago when I was a frightened Newbie, her bravery really impressed me and made me feel mard. May she rest in peace, she`ll be waiting for you on a cloud somewhere. God bless xx
I am so saddened by how quick Snoogle was taken away, she was such a lovely lady and I am so pleased you got to have some special days earlier this month too.
Condolences to all your family and friends and esp to you and the children.
Lots of love n hugs
Danny you and your family are very much in my thoughts,I can but imagine how you are feeling right now. My heart goes out to you. Josie
Danny, so sorry to hear your Jennifer has died. There are hundreds of us out here wishing you and your children well. very best wishes Nicola
May I add sincere condolences to you and your family and friends on the sad news of Jennifer's death from all at BCC, she will be sadly missed here.
What sad news. I 'met' Snoogle - or Jennifer - when she first posted on these forums and although my mets are different, so I wasn't always posting on the same threads, was aware that she was not doing too well. What an awful time for you, your children and all of your friends and family. I'm sure she gained comfort from the fact that you were there all the time for her. May she rest in peace.
Snoogle (Jennifer), my darling, my best friend, my soulmate, my lover, my rock, my wife was taken from us by this rotten disease in the early hours of Friday morning. Jennifer's passing whilst not unexpected, was a shock to all as her health deteriorated so so rapidly in her final 5 days, snatching from her the time that she had planned to put her final thoughts to paper for our children. Jennifer gave me the last 26 years of her life, from when I was merely 18 years old, for this and for our two young children I will be eternally grateful.
I cared for Jennifer at home for all bar her final 15 hours, which were spent in the Hospice, where I remained, holding Jennifer until she took her final breath. I promised Jennifer that she would not be alone at this time, it was the most painful thing I have ever done, yet I'm honoured to have been able to keep that promise.
Jennifer you will always be remembered by those who loved you, now and forever.
