Sad day tomorrow

Just to say that those who knew Dawn Bladen (borderdawn) from another of a site by AZZ, her funeral is tomorrow about 1PM in Streetly crematorium in the west midlands. Sue and I will be going as she looked after us when we had the kennels. As it is an 8 hour round trip I doubt if I shall be posting tomorrow. Can I that those who knew her spared a moment in her memory, thank you


I didn’t know her RS … but you did and you’re clearly sad.
Funny isn’t it … how some people you bump into on forums become as important as people in the real world and you miss em’ badly when they’re gone.

I hope the day is not too sad for you.

What lovely post Realspeed.
I didn’t know the lady. It will be a long trip for you, which just goes to show how much she meant to you both.

That’s so sad RS. Travel safe.


I knew Dawn and have to say she was a lovely lady and tomorrow I will be logging in for the service as long as I am out of the hospital in time. To pay my respects I shall walk Gert, as apart from photography her dogs/cats were her life and she would understand that.

Safe journey Sue and Barry.

Rest In peace Border-Dawn. :heavy_heart_exclamation:

I didn’t know her either, but it is always very sad when a forum member dies. I do know that.

You have my condolences, realspeed.

Do remember her from the other site loved her posts and had great respect for her

Just got home must have been 60 or 70 people there the crematorium was packed . Just goes to show how much she is miss, people even came down from Durham to say the last goodbye. Left here at 7am so a long day (13 hrs) for us. Met up with her family and friends not seen since we move.
