Aunty Jane

Jane, approx 6 yrs old

My dear friend Jane

I learned of your passing today and my heart is so sore I feel it could burst at any minute. We never met in all of the 3 years or so that we knew each other but we spoke via Twitter nearly every day. Those who don’t “get” Twitter will fail to understand how I could howl with grief on hearing the news but our friends will empathise completely.

I don’t know any details of your passing other than the date 26th December 2013 which was 2 days after we last communicated, when you told me you were sick. I was expecting you to surface at any moment with a cheery welcome and a joke about Nanny’s nip habit but in my heart I knew that something had to be deeply wrong for you to be away from your beloved anipals for so long. In any event the how, the what and the why are irrelevant, all I know is that I will no longer see Jessie’s sweet face pop up in my timeline, and my life and that of many others will be the poorer for it.

You were so very popular on Twitter and many friends will have special memories of you. Those memories will be a wonderful thing in years to come but right now we are all devastated; heartbroken that you have been taken from us and also that we did not know how sick you were.  Typically, you kept that to yourself and dealt with it in your own way, which I respect. I’m so glad that I told you I loved you in my last DM to you. I hope you saw it.

We shared so much in the time that we knew each other – a deep connection forged firstly through a shared view of the world and love of animals, then deepened into true loving friendship as we wove our stories and got involved with the fun to be had on Twitter.  Your Jessie was a beautiful flowergirl when Thomas married his darling Keely, and she then moved in to “keep house” for them along with @PinballBob and @TigerBoytheCat (after stowing away and accompanying them on their honeymoon).  You shared our joy when @ourWinniePup came along and Jessie was promoted to Nanny. Who knew that she had trained at Norland Nanny School?!

Your sadness matched mine when Keely went OTRB and we grieved with you on the passing of your bestie @toughteddybear and many others. It is hard to believe that this  time last year we were welcoming @ourChloePup into our little Twitter world and Jessie had dusted off her Nanny uniform once again.

Jane, I am sad that I can’t thank you for your love, support, humour, understanding, compassion and kindness. Whilst writing this I have been holding on to the scarf that you sent me for Christmas and it is wet with many tears. I wish you were here so that I could tell you how much you meant to me. I will try to smile when I think of you because I know that is what you would want.

My friend, I will miss you and I will always cherish your memory. It was a privilege to know you and to have you call me friend.

With squeezy hugs from Lorraine, Petal Chloe and Poppet Winnie, love for ever xxxxx

****************************************************

A note from Thomas:

Pals, many have asked what happened to Aunty Jane @JessieJaney, and while we don’t know much at the moment, we will tell you what we do know.

Aunty told some of us on Christmas eve that she was not feeling very good and would be offline for a few days. She told us not to worry and that she would be OK. But we didn’t hear anything, despite many of us leaving DMs, emails and telephone messages.

Then last night a very good furiend, Janis, expressed her distress and anxiety to Nan, realising that no-one had heard from Jane for about a week, and asked Nan to phone Jane’s local police station. The policeman who answered (Constable Blair) was helpful and after listening to Pop, he contacted the local hospital. Then he rang us back and said that Aunty had been seen by the hospital on 26 December but had not been admitted, and that was all he could find out.

Pop was not to be deterred, so he phoned the hospital himself. He spoke to a nice lady at the switchboard, who was very concerned once Pop relayed the story to her. When she learned that Aunty Jane was battling MS, she contacted the MS Ward and found out that yes, Aunty was definitely there on 26 December but had not been admitted. We all presumed she must have left the hospital and perhaps had become poorly again and gone to another hospital. The nice switchboard lady told us to sit back while she herself phoned all the other hospitals, then she rang us back and confirmed that Aunty was not at any other hospital.

So Pop rang Constable Blair back. Pop said he could tell things were hectic at the station (this was midnight New Year’s Eve, after all) but he explained that we still couldn’t find Aunty Jane and the constable said he would send a car to check. However, just a couple of minutes later Pop’s phone rang and it was Constable Blair again. He said he had checked further and was very sorry to have to tell us that Aunty Jane had passed away at the hospital on 26 December. He didn’t know any further details.

We are trying to contact Uncle Hugh – we have sent emails and Aunty Freya @charshy_pup has left a card at Aunty Jane’s house with some of our names and numbers, hoping Uncle Hugh will call us. We don’t know what has become of Jessie, it is one of the things we need to find out.

There is an extra bright star in the sky at night but our world is dimmer. I do hope we can find out about Jessie but I’m sure Jane would have made sure she would be well looked after.

    PepiSmartDog and mum Michele: I’ve been crying for about 20 hours now; so heartbreakingly sad. Jane would be at pawties when we barktended and I was privileged to win a number of her prize gifts, which I already treasured and use everyday – and now they are extra special reminders of what a beautiful person she truly was. I really miss her and can’t stop crying; I feel so bad and so helpless. I wish I could have told her how much I loved her and admired her. *tears* :=o( She was one of the nicest, sweetest people in our anipal community. So sad….

      *head on Aunty’s knee* Aunty Michele, don’t feel bad – I’m sure Jane knew we loved her. Yes, we wish we could have said “I love you” one last time, but most of us didn’t get the chance. That’s one reason that our only resolution this year is to make sure our pals know how much we appreciate and love them. Take heart Aunty, we are sure that Jane knows how much we love her and miss her *face licks* xox

You have done what Thomas can’t do find his Jessie. Rest In Peace Jane and it was awesome knowing someone so fine and classy.

    Thank you so much for posting this beautiful tribute to our friend Janey. She was a good friend to me too and an inspiration. When I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s she became a trusted friend and we could express our true feelings and fears. I hope her brother can be located and be referred to this blog so he understands how deeply his sister touched our lives. I hope Jesse is okay and someone is feeding and providing shelter. When I write something about this in my PD blog, I’m going to refer toy our blog as everything is so well written and you have expressed what is in all of our hearts.

      Thank you, Aunty and Mario kitty *smoochies* Jessie was incredibly supportive, some of which we are only just learning about, and some we will never know. What is apparent though is that she touched many of our lives in a very pawsitive way and was universally loved – a woman that one was proud to call ‘friend’ and lucky to be friends with. She made Nan want to be a better person. Yes, we do want to make sure Uncle Hugh knows of the huge impact Jane had on us. We’ll keep you updated *hugs tight* xox

    I too wish I had spoken to Jane recently, our time zones should not have been the excuse, I had not seen her lately on twitter I used to see her tweeting about Winnie & Chloe & thought perhaps the holidays kept her busy.
    She was my 1st friend on twitter she gave Shorty his uncle sam hat that I shall always treasure [& she put up with my stupidity on how to use that avi]
    I was looking up her address maybe her brother Hugh will have any mail forwarded to him? I am sure Jessie is with Hugh, Jane made arrangements for that.
    I love you Jane I’m sorry I didn’t say this while you can read it.
    One day we will meet at the RB & thats a date!

    Can’t stop crying…the tears seem to be endless. Thank you so much for this blog Tom-you’ve said what’s in all our hearts. I know Jane is surrounded by our anipals who crossed before her – Teddy for sure was there to greet his #Bestie’s HuMum. She is free from the pain she never talked about – our pain is just beginning. The thought of never seeing our darling Jessie on the timeline causes a new wave of tears.
    I pray Jessie is with Hugh and that she feels our love as she misses her beloved HuMum. The world lost a beautiful human being who was always an angel in disguise. Rest in Peace Jane – we will always hold you in our hearts.

    Thomas and Wendy, we didn’t speak to JJ as much as we might but were mightily amused by her tending to little ChoePup and everyone having breakfast. We are heavy with grief, we are bereft of our beloved friend. I weep as I write with guilt for not doing more, with grief for losing a friend even though we never met. Thomas I could howl alongside you with deep grief for a beloved friend.

      Dear Aunty, please don’t feel any guilt. Jane would be the first to tell you that “real life” (and she would chuckle at that phrase) often intrudes and has to be dealt with, sometimes leaving very little time for our “online life” (another chuckle from Jane). But yes, you are right – brekkies in the morning won’t be the same without Nanny’s bacon and scramblies. Thank you for your kind words and loving support xox *hugs tight*

Jane and Jessie were so wonderfully kind to us when we lost Ryker – and they were some of the original peeps we met when we first began on twitter back many years ago. We’re grieving with all our twitter friends, and thank you so very much for bringing us up to speed on the details.

    Thank you for investigating to find out what happened to Jane. I’ve been so sad, reading all the tweets and posts about her, I’d completely forgotten that Cokie’s last toy was a little Koala he won from @JessieJaney. That was his last package, and the last new thing he sniffed and played with. Now I remember telling him to get a good whiff of the envelope that had come all the way from Australia. Oh Jane.. I hope you can feel all the love from around the world for you and your sweet Jessie.

    Love,

      *soft paw* We were all very lucky to know Jane & Jessie, but you is extra lucky to have such a special memory, Aunty … I bet Cookie and Jane are having smoochies in heaven right this minute! And I’m certain that they can feel our love *face licks* xox

    Thank you for sharing your tribute to Jane. Loved seeing what y’all were up to when I would come in and out from work. Nanny even let me sit with Chloe and just at the times when there were smelly diapers to be changed. What great memories. What a fabulous thing she shared with us….and so many of you don’t realize you humums already are following in her footsteps. May each of us touch as many lives as Jane did.

      *smiles* I remember that! And those smelly diapers *Chloe hollers in the background and turns bright red* Yes, we have many wonderful memories which we are grateful we were given the chance to create with our beloved Nanny. But the Summerhouse will continue, Aunty. And Nanny’s memory will forever live on within it’s walls. xox

    Oh wait! The little koala was for me for my laptop… Cokie’s prize from Janey was – of course – a catnip boomerang! That was his last new toy. Love you Jessie and Janey.
