DEF - Thank you for sharing those wonderful words. Lighting 365 candles will be a fitting tribute to Froona, who is missed by so many here and around the world.

Erna - Your video is beautiful, as is the music. If I recall, that music was one of Froona's favorites. I had tears in my eyes while I watched it . . . such lovely images of Froona and her beloved falcons.

This is such a beautiful idea to honor Froona on the one year anniversary of her "receiving her wings." Thanks to all who organized this tribute. I plan to light as many candles as I can from now until 4/4/10 9:15 p.m. GMT+2.

Such beautiful words Ingrid and such a touching video Erna.

what a wonderful idea for such a remarkable person. she has taught me personally so much.

I will light a candle now and before I turn in and when I wake up.

Keep soaring Froona. You are missed but I know you are soaring with the angels and all the raptors you held so dear.

How beautiful is it that the first eyases of the season broke out of their shell on this special day, Easter Sunday April 4.

Froona had a MSN site that I have saved to my computer. MSN Groups was terminated and Froona didn't have the time to do it herself so I did it for her.
It's in Dutch mainly, but a few pages have wonderful texts in English. I would like to share one with you:

Image

Deep inside of me
There resides energy
That feeds my spirit
With universal love.

It empties my mind of fear
So that I canWalk the world
With confidence

It clears my heart of anger
So that I Can love
My fellow man.

It frees me of anger
So that I can Live my life
In peace.

It expands my thoughts,
Heals my body,
And allows me
To be who I truly am

A spiritual being
with a human form....

I took Froona's death really hard last year, for many reasons I think. She was my age. I hadn't even realized that she was sick. She didn't live to see Pa and S2's chicks. Her poor little cats lost their mom. But mostly, I think, because I was already grieving because I had just lost my own dad 2 months before.

I went to my dad's grave yesterday, it was his birthday. I took a single birthday candle to stick in the ground and as I was reflecting, I thought of Froona. I guess the candle made me think of lighting a candle for Froona. I did so when I got back. For me, these two losses will always be connected in my mind. Maybe, they have met each other in Heaven.

I published one of Froona;s MSN webpages within my own site: "If I am infinite, then who are you? "

I agree! Thank you all for the lovely words and art with which to remember Froona. She was one special lady who is deeply missed by me and so many others.
