We wished you peace and much love and to be surrounded by all your loved ones today as we celebrated your birthday. It is then fitting to think you left this world on the very day you joined it. A perfect symmetry. The circle of life complete
The poignancy of this special day is not lost on myself nor I suspect on all the myriad of friends you made and have travelled through this life with. So I leave your family and those multitudes of friends with these words that I hope will give comfort to them as you continue this journey onward.
From The Return of the King (LOTR) - A Viggoless statement i'm afraid
Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path... One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass... And then you see it.
Pippin: What? Gandalf?... See what?
Gandalf: White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: [smiling] Well, that isn't so bad.
Gandalf: [softly] No... No it isn't.
See you on the other side Jeanne. I hope you’ll be waiting with a large glass of Chianti and good few stories to tell
