Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal

Some people come into your lives and you
never forget them,
Gillie was just such a person in my life—
I became very fond of Gillie over the many years that I knew her.
What a tremendous zest she had for life—we all can remember her great sense of humor!
She went through many years of heartache with Bill her husband when he was ill, and then Gillie’s health started failing!
I can only imagine what she went through - yet in all the time I never once heard Gillie complain. Near the end of her life she
became frail and we all knew she was more than ready to go! What an absolute honor to have a row and a half filled in the Catholic Church at her memorial service with all you wonderful people, and to hear from Gillie’s family, in their tributes, how much Time Out and Traveltime meant in her life.
GO WELL my dear friend, Gillie - loved by many - you are already missed

Ann Barnes passed away on 22nd May. Ann, we will miss you—your soft, gentle nature is how we will all remember you!
I was so very pleased to see how many of you made an effort to go to Ann’s memorial service. Thank you - I know her daughters were so very pleased to see us all.

Trish Cunningham's son Patrick contacted us following her passing:
I'm sorry to have to tell you this way but mum died on Thursday in the Countess Mountbatten Hospice here in Southampton. I was with her at the end.
Her health went downhill a month ago so she was admitted to the hospice. The staff there are brilliant & care she received was exemplary. The hope was always that she could return to her apartment were she was very comfortable & happy but unfortunately it wasn't to be.
I'm sorry you didn't get chance to communicate with her but withdrawal is part of the dying process so please don't think she was being unkind. Also, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply but there is so much arranging to do after death, even when expected, on top of the emotional strain. Her funeral will be on the 20th but I will scatter her ashes back in CT, which was her wish.
Would you please pass on the news to Linda and all the girls. I'd also like to thank you for being a good friend to mum over the years and remember all the happy times together, as she fondly did.

It is with sadness that we report that Babs Pentz passed away at 4.00 pm on Thursday 6th June. Her sister Marie and husband Ronnie are very saddened by this, but those of you who knew Babs and her circumstances over the past years, will agree that she is now in a better place!

Sadly Veronica Burzelman passed away on 3rd June. She had spent six weeks in hospital with a brief time at the home of her daughter, Gillian.
Veronica will be sadly missed by all the members of the Time Out Ladies Club & Traveltime.
We will remember her for her gentle spirit and enthusiasm and love of travelling. She was always willing to help, often giving me newspaper clips of venues for future trips.

Gwen joined Time Out in early 2005 – she was very active on the tours always bringing a friend along to share the days with her. My personal memory of Gwen is on a Spring Flower Tour when she insisted on stopping the coach each time we saw cows “Just for another photograph, please Carol”
She was always extremely well groomed and a beautiful woman. We will all remember her bubbly personality. Unfortunately, cancer took hold of her body which prevented her from joining the tours and for the last 5 years she battled this disease, having many treatments.
Gwen will be missed by all who knew her. RIP dear Gwen

We met Sue and Margaret through the Time Out Club. Sue was a lovely person, such a serene lady, expressing a gentleness and positiveness wherever and whenever we met. Never showing her 'down' days, she handled her illness with great fortitude. She always appeared cheerful and at peace.
Our love and thoughts are with Margaret and family at this sad time. Russell & Cynthia

On the 28th January 2007 Colleen Mulder lost her battle with cancer. What a brave battle she fought. Those close to her will know that in the 18 months or so that Colleen was sick - not once when you asked how she was, did you get anything but a positive response.
She will be very dearly missed in our Club. I particularly, will miss her bubbly personality - her positive approach to everything and I know many other members love Colleen as much as I do!
A memorial service was held @ Dolphin Beach on 31/01 - thanks to all who attended! What a moving service!
