Thanks for those who were online. I was also on Begga's facebook and I imagine I was not alone there....

Be Blessed Begga.

Lit a candle and had 5 minutes silence for a young lady I have never met, but who has touched my heart. RIP Begga.

Re: A moment of silence for Begga...

I knew with a 4yr. old in the house, it would be difficult to have a full 5mins. of silence, but at least as the clock struck 9** I did have a moment of quiet reflection to someone I never knew, but touched many - before my daughter insisted on asking things that just had to answered right then.

** the strange thing was, that the chiming mechanism of our clock had long since run down and has not been re-wound - the last time it chimed was at least yesterday - and then at 9 this morning the spring found nine more chimes - which re-alerted me to this moment of unified reverence.

Re: A moment of silence for Begga...

I did not know Begga, and have not been very active on the forum but as I live Switzerland today , I did join my thoughts with all of you this morning. It is a special day for me and my family and even more so for this such caring on line community , a forum through which I met my best friend here in Switzerland. RIP Begga.

Put up a pic of Teckla on your screen. That might help.
I lit a candle and sat cross-legged on a rug. Umbria lay down beside me quietly for 10 minutes - she seemed to know it was something serious and only nosed my hand gently twice. Travel well, Begga - Teckla will rejoin you when the time comes.

I didn't see this thread until too late, but Begga and her family have been on my mind all morning. I still can't comprehend it.
