Thank you, Jack, that is beautiful.

I'm going to print all these out today and bring them to him tomorrow.

He has gone home and is now in hospice care. :(

Though they are trying a new weekly herbal chemo treatment.

I wanted to stop by today and tell you how special the book I created for Jim was to him. He was very grateful. I read some poems and greetings by his bedside and showed him the book page by page.

Unfortunately, Jim passed away this morning at 5:50am.

His family and his partner also want to express their gratitude for all of your contributions to the little book of artwork, poetry and greetings.

............

RIP Jim McLoughlin.

A gentle man with a huge heart.

I will miss you very much.

Doreen, I was sorry to read of the passing of your co-worker & friend, Jim McLoughlin. :( (Sorry I didn't get a chance to post any photos. I don't know how.) Please give my condolences to his family, etc.

Thank you, Steve. He was a wonderful guy.... and will be sorely missed. It's been a very sad day. :(

Later, when I have the opportunity, I'll save the layout of the little book I created from the greetings, poetry & images as an image file and post it to this thread so people can see what we left for his partner and family to treasure in the years ahead.

I just temporarily stuck the thread up to the top of the forums to let the contributors and everyone else know what happened.

Thank you so much, Steve!

Doreen, thank you for sharing Jim with us and giving us the chance to send prayers, poems and art out to someone we did not know face to face, but to know his goodness while he was here for the short time through you. To reach someone we'd not had his words even, but his beauty by way of your channeling him to us in communication. I'm very sad to know he has passed. I know he is not and it's the living, it's us here with pain..

Sending my love to you, and also to his partner and family, friends.

little mischievous darling!

Thank you all! - i hope to share this link with Jim's partner, Dale, and with Jim's family....

Many thanks to the artists & poets who contributed your soul-whole artistry for the little book his partner and family I hope will treasure for years to come. I will not say goodbye to my friend Jim Mcloughlin... instead, I'll just say, "Thank you for your friendship and love and I will miss you and see you in whatever next life we become recreated and if that doesn't come to pass, alas, I bid you adieu, grateful that the universe granted you the right to walk into the circle and cycle of my life, even if only for a short time, a rhyme within stolen clock time, treasured.

To my friend, Jim McLoughlin ... I wish you peace.

The love of the universe shows from those who never knew him but knew his spirit through my request for your love, prayers and support. Thank you!
