Alan just called me to say that Elspeth passed over this morning at home and in her sleep. No funeral arrangements have been made yet, but I will pass on the info when I get it.

I'm so very sorry to hear this, Randall.  {{hugs}} to you, Alan, Ghost, and all who knew and will miss her.

I am so sorry to hear that Elspeth has gone from us. She was a wonderful person and an inspiration in my life. When my husband Charlie passed, Elspeth send me a poem, Lifetime Companion, which I read at his memorial service. The poem is about losing a mate, but a few of the lines apply to us all.

For those of you who never read the poem...

WHERE HAVE YOU GONE?
by Elspeth Sapphire


Lifetime companion...
Where have you gone?
I thought that your place was at my side forever,
Your warmth beside me in my bed.
Now I find myself watching for you
Hearing a noise at the door ....
But only finding empty air and memories.
Funny ... it is the things I hated
That I find I miss the most.
I find myself saving tidbits
But how do you feed a spirit?
I remind myself of cycles;
That death is a beginning ...
And never an ending ...
But I am only too aware
I am barren and alone.

Oh, where have you gone?
Is that your touch brushing by?
Or will you live within me ...
Until that day that we meet again.
Oh, lifetime companion....

Oh no! Such sad news; she will be greatly missed.

My thoughts and prayers all with you all.

Thanks everyone. This hasn't been the best day for me but reading the posts here has helped. I'll pass a link to this thread on to Alan.

Lyric has suggested that I do a special issue of Cauldron and Candle to make sure everyone who doesn't visit the board as often is informed. I think that is a good idea. I'll fill it with some of her writing from the website.  I'll try to work on it tomorrow.

Randall, PLEASE let me know if there's anything I can do to help you with that.  I have nothing but time right now.

I'm not making much sense, I know.  Sorry, but she has been a good friend for many years and this is hitting me hard.

(((Randall & all affected by Elspeth's passing)))  I'll light a candle for her tonight.

Cry I will miss her.  I didn't get to know her as well as I wished I could, since she was already ill by the time I joined TC, but on occasions when she was feeling up to being around the forum, she and I had some good convos - our pagan backgrounds, and our attitudes, had a lot of common ground.
