Farewell Maitland

11 Mar 1975 - 26 Nov 2012
I wanted to do a fitting tribute to you Maity but I don't know where to start. It's hard to find the right words to express how I feel. 
You were a good friend. Someone who without even thinking about it would lend a hand at a moments notice. You were very good to us over the years helping us out, making us laugh and sharing some interesting tales. Because of your good character and generous spirit you were loved by many. 

We had such fun at Sassy Sigs creating graphics and animations. I will always remember your love of turkeys and how you would create funny animations using pictures of them. Some of them were outrageously funny. The boys and I even tried to find a toy turkey for you but we only managed to find a rubber chicken. You loved it anyway.

I know that over the past few months your quality of life was not the best. Your epilepsy played havoc with your daily activities but that never truly stopped you from having a go at things. We may never truly know what happened the day you ended up in intensive care but I do know you will never be in pain again and you're now in a better place. 

We will miss you Maitland.

Sorry for your loss, Jo. :-( We lost a friend last night too...cancer. :-( It's a tough world we live in.

Oh Poetess I am sorry to hear about your friend too. It is a tough world isn't it.
