Hi everybody,

A lady called Raina, her username was raichris passed away on the 17th of October.

She hadn't posted since last year as she had been quite ill.

Her husband asked me to tell all her friends at Knitters Review that she has passed over and to tell you all what comfort and fun she had here.

Knit in peace and harmony.


Rose in Melbourne, Australia.

Oh, how sad.

Rose, will you express our sympathies to her husband?

Thank you Rose for letting us know. Please give my condolences to her husband. I can relate to what he is going through. Take care. Beverley

I think I started here after she stopped posting but please give her husband and family our sympathies -- I hope she was able to lurk even though she wasn't posting.

Hi,

As usual I blundered in by sending her a Get Well Card and then the next day I got the news from her husband that she had passed on. He asked me to let everybody know, I know she lurked a lot when she was in hospital.

I wrote back to her husband and said on behalf of us all at Knitters Review that we would all miss her and what a lovely lady she was, I also passed on our deepest sympathies and condolences.

I think I should just leave it at that.

I hope that was ok with everybody, as I was so shocked I didn't know what else to say.

Knit in peace and harmony.

Rose,

Showing you care is not a blunder! When a spouse dies you think about them all the time, and knowing others think about them (as your card showed) and haven't forgoten can bring it's own comfort.

If it had been a blunder, I can't imagine you would have gotten such a nice response. Thanks so much for sharing our condolences to him.

I don't remember her either, but am thinking good thoughts for her loves ones.

Perhaps today a future knitter was born...

Oh Rose.....certainly not a blunder to show you cared with a card. I'm certain it touched her husband to know you had reached out to her.

Rose, there was no blunder. You showed concern and care.

Although I joined after she stopped, I am sorry she was ill and passed over.

Rose,

People will always remember the kindness shown to them by others. One never knows what a difference they make in other lives in the little things they do. I'm sure she enjoyed being a part of the group even though she couldn't participate. Your card let her husband and family know that someone cared about their loved one. Thanks for sharing. (P.S. I did teach my daughter to knit a few weeks ago so we have a new knitter now! If we teach others to knit, there will always be knitters to replace the ones who leave us.)

I often wonder if something happened to me, how many of my online pals would actually know about it. The down-side to being somewhat annonymous.
Sad news, indeed. Everyone should teach someone new to knit...in her honor!
Thanks for sharing this, even though it was sad.

Hi, Rose: Her husband and family know you had the right thoughts in mind. You did nothing wrong but having done the same thing I know exactly how you feel. Thank you so much for passing along condolences. I am sure everyone will agree. Take care. Beverley

Rose, I'm home sick tonight instead of going to the Opera. I came here to "be with everyone" and I feel honored to have read this thread of yours, and able to grieve for a sister knitter here along with you all. What a caring person you are, and how lucky we are to have each other. I will click my needles together and think of thoughts of friendship in memory of our friend Raina.
