Some of you on here might remember that Jen and I were about start a new venture in Fethiye.It was to be a new bar with a difference.
Nearly every day the lines between Her and I would be buzzing.A whole circle of us chatting away for hours.Ms Who,Pennie,MagieIt was me that posted the sad news on TLF.The responce was atronomical.Kym and I went to the cemetary two years ago to pay our respects to this wonderful person.

It is heartwarming to read all this and find out that people are reading her stories and are touched by it.....
I remember when I first read them, I cried .
Yes, she was extraordinary, a woman on her own in Turkey, living in Paradise as she used to say.... how true
I still miss her, so I'm glad you are all writing about her

I just happened to stumble across her entries on Sunday lunchtime. I was totally engrossed and felt I knew this person by the end. Strange. It would be great if some more photos of her can be posted. I wish I had her bravado to up sticks and move to Turkey. Maybe one day..........:roundgrin

I really miss Jenn. I used to spend hours on here talking with her in the chatroom. I believe she died of a heart Attack. I have not used msn since she died and the chatroom seems always empty now. She gave me great advice and always listened to other people's problems. She was a lovely lady. I will never forget her and her amazing outlook on life.

She was a great character on here...cant believe it is over 3 years since she died...nice that she left her stories for us to remember her by, and for those who did not know her then to be entertained by them now...she would have loved that...!

do you remember the early days when some evenings it was just You Jen and I in the chatroom? I remember you asking her about buying things in Turkey and we often wondered why many nights there were only us in the chatroom

Jen was an amazing lady, she was one of the first ones I spoke to on here, we used to have such a laugh in the chatroom and almost every day on MSN too. She truly was amazing and although she had a few problems she just battled on and never seemed to stop joking. Don't think I have been in the chatroom since Jen passed away. Thinking of you Jen, God Bless XXXXXXX

Jen was a star, I remember reading her stories over a glass of wine and laughing my head off at times, she really had a way with words. I've kept her pm's.

The thread about tax on solar heaters was a classic!

I came on to ask where I go after Travels In Turkey part 20 but seems like everyone else had the same problem - seems a big gap in time in between that and Moving On Part 1. Thanks to Pricklythistle for this thread highlighting these stories - I had been a bit fed up and blue the last few days but totally engrossed reading Jen's tales each evening, been laughing out loud to myself. Last night when I got to the end of part 20 I wanted to carry on but didn't want to start off reading the wrong bit - I was torn (like a bestseller!). I love the style and humour in Jen's writing - her descriptions transport you there.
Look forward to another session tonight with a glass of red wine! Carol

Loved Madcow's stories, she was a true star of TLF. I remember starting to read her story and that was it, I was hooked, it was better than some of the block buster books out there. She really enjoyed life and no matter how down you feel she could and still can make you laugh out loud.
So sad that she is not with us anymore.

It was actually Pricklythistle who highlighted these stories. I just remembered reading them. Like everyone else reading them, they made me laugh and cry and I always wanted more. I didn't post often to the forum, just dipped in and out so unlike many who have contributed to this thread I never spoke with her. When I heard of her death it was like I lost someone I knew very well and I cried and cried.
To me it is a great mark of character that someone you have never met can have such a profound effect on you, I cannot begin to imagine the loss and shock for those who actually knew her.
We should all be so lucky, to bring so much pleasure to others and to continue to touch peoples lives after we are gone
