A lady I work with passed away yesterday.

She had terminal cancer, but was told about a month ago that she should have 1-2 years left. It's a very sad and quiet day in the office today.

Japan.

I have a good friend there, Akemi, who is ok-ish - except that her house keeps shaking, and she can't get a train to work, because they've stopped running. But the Japanese keep going, so she gets a bus to work, which takes 6 hours! :o And she says she'll get some sleep when it's all over...

But she has a friend in Sendai, where the tsunami hit; she can't get hold of the friend.

All of us on PP have serious stuff going on, no doubt about it; but it's still hard to imagine trying and trying to get through to a friend in a disaster zone :cry:

Yeh, everything that is happening in Japan sure puts everything here in perspective. Has she checked the google person finder? I heard about it, maybe her friend has posted on there? http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/?lang=en

I hope that everything turns out safe with her friend.

Heard from my friend, Akemi, in Japan today - she said she'd managed to get in touch with HER friend;

"She said she'd been in a refuge with her husband for 2 nights. Then they went back home yesterday. She said she was lucky, because she and her husband managed to survive and their house was ok. She had a terrible experience though"

Akemi says the after-shocks are exhausting, and non-stop; today they were enormous. There are no trains to get her to work - the Japanese are very big on carrying on without complaining, whatever happens, so this is something new.

But she also says "Please say thank people who worry me". :D

So that's what I'm doing. :P

I am really glad that they are both okay.

I really hope that they remain safe as well. My thoughts are with Japan at this time.

I wanted to post a remembrance for a colleagues brother.

He was playing football at the weekend, he had an asthma attack and he collapsed and died. He was only 15 years old. It's very very sad :(

Captainf, I know how you feel, this year will be 16 years since my mum went (then my nan, then my two uncles, then my dad two years ago), and it's ALL like yesterday. There's no time limit on grief, but we need to know we're doing everything to honour our lost loved ones.

I believe in life after death, you don't really, but you're sort of open to it; either way, what you CAN be proud of is, you've got on with your life all these years in spite of your grief; it's what all the world has to do, and it's what your grandad would expect you to do. Nobody will ever take the place of our loved ones who have gone, but it's up to us to do the very best we can while we're here. I believe they know what we're up to (good and bad :o ), but even if they don't, please live as if they do, and as if they still love us dearly (which I believe they do)

I just wanted to say that my friend Timmy passed away today after 2 years battling with cancer. I hope he's gone to a better place. My heart aches for his poor family and girlfriend. He was 26, just 6 days older than me :(
