Back Open

I have decided to open this journal. I am not sure if Jeannette has her blog open (SILENT KEYBOARDS) or not if there is a post you would like to post please email me and I will add it. I am still finding my way around on the Blogger and plan on redoing this journal.

to leave ypclosed

This journal is now closed. Please use the link in the previous entry to left an entry.


Thank you




The new version of Angels is now open. 

Chuck Ferris who sadly passed at the beginning of this month has been added.  I did not know him too well so I am hoping that one of his close friends will add a posting in his memory.

It is also dearly hoped that we will not have to add any new names for a very long time.

Please make sure that you put the new version on your alerts as no more postings will be added to this one.

I would be grateful if you could pass on this link to all your J-Land friends so that they are aware of it.  Thank you very much.  Here is the link:-





This is to let everyone know that due to various difficulties, it became increasingly problematical to update this site.

With the full blessing and co-operation of Sunny who created the concept of having a memorial site for J-Land writers who have passed on,  a new site is being created.  In fact, it is almost ready for release.

Chuck Ferris has been added to the new site which is private at the moment until the finishing touches have been put to it. When that is done it will be opened up.

This site will remain but will NOT be added to in the future. A link to this journal has been put onto the new one.

I shall notify as many people as I can and I have informed the journals editor of this change.

When the new journal is open I shall do a posting here to let you all know.

My thanks to Sunny and also to Donna who made the sidebar graphics for this journal and also Shelley who made the memorial quilt squares.

Many will know that Chuck Ferris passed away on the 1st July.  He was a very popular member of the J-Land community and I know that many will miss him. He had been writing for four years.

For technical reasons I have not yet been able to add his picture and journal link to this tribute journal.  I hope it can be sorted out in the near future.

In the meantime anyone wishing to leave a message for his family or to say just how they felt about Chuck can visit his site at:-

J-Land has a new angel.  Now out of  pain and flying free. God bless him.

Irene....R.I.P. 2/25/08

Re-posting from Guido's journal in honor of Irene.  She passed away this morning.



Breakfast Table

Is it a million miles to heaven
too far to hear my lonely song?
Or is it just my imagination I hear you humming along?
I only hold you in my dreams now.
I wake up with cold and empty arms.
Lord help me get through this long night without you ,
And soon as the morning comes,
Soon as the morning comes.

Save me a seat at the breakfast table.
Save me a dance around the Milky Way.
And save me a thousand years to whisper in your ears.
All I've wanted to say.
Save me a smile and an angel's feather.
Save me a walk down the streets of gold.
And baby,we'll change our minds just like old times...
And maybe we'll just fly away.
Or maybe we'll stay.

My lucky doll, you're in heaven before me.
You were my taste of heaven here.
Remember we loved to talk about it, we couldn't wait to get there.
So you go on and find your way around now.
But remember I'm here missing you.
Do me a favor and say hey to Jesus!
And tell him I'm missing him too.
Tell him I'm missing him too.

Then save me a seat at the breakfast table.
Save me a dance around the Milky Way.
And save me a thousand years to whisper in your ears.
All I've wanted to say.
Save me a smile and an angel's feather.
Save me a walk down the streets of gold.
And baby, we'll change our mindsjust like old times.
And maybe we'll just fly away.
Or maybe we'll stay.



I have added Irene's photo and her journal link.  A very courageous lady and a friend to many, she has now taken her rightful place alongside our other departed journal friends.   Fly free Irene - you will not be forgotten.

Irene / Alwaysireneann

The Call for Support journal alerted me, thanks to Indigo, that Irene passed away in the early hours of the morning, after a long battle with cancer. She is now sitting at the breakfast table. I am very upset at her passing, a gentle soul, who will be deeply missed by all those in her vicinity. Whether it be family and friends or the J-land community. It came as a shock this afternoon.

Irene, rest in peace. The suffering is over.
Keep the coffee warm, we'll be there in time.

Another Star In Heaven

I heard from Sunny about the passing of another journaller.  I did not know Walt and had never read his journal but I have now added his link under those of our other departed friends so that you can leave condolence messages or just go and read his journal.  May he rest in peace.

Sunny has looked through his journal to try and find a photo of him without success.  If any of his regular readers has one I would be grateful if they could send it to me for adding to the sidebar along with the other photos.  Thank you.

Another Angel

J-land I have just found out that we have another ANGEL who has recieved his wings.

His name is WALT and his journal is " The Diatom Project".

Walt has indeed recieved his wings.

A Song Tribute

I was listening through some old music last week and found this particular song.  I thought I would share it with you all as the words seemed appropriate.  Our “Angels” will be dearly missed.  My condolences go out to all of their families.


Spice Girls – ‘Let Love Lead the Way’


What makes this world go round
Will the answer let her down
She is so sweet and young
And her life has just begun
What does her future hold?

That's the story left unknown
Will she make it through her days?

Let our love lead the way

Part of me laughs (ooooh)
Part of me cries
Part of me wants to question why (question why)

Why is there joy?
And why is there pain? (ooh)
Why is there sunshine and the rain?
One day you're here
Next you are gone
No matter what we must go on
Just keep the faith
And let love lead the way
Everything will work out fine
If you let love, love lead the way

Sitting there all alone
In the window of her room
Watching the world go by
Brings tears to her eyes
All she sees is hurt and pain, she wants to break the chain
She'll keep pressing everyday and she'll find her own sweet way

Part of me laughs (me laughs)
Part of me cries (I cry)
Part of me wants to question why (wants to question why)
One day you're here (you're here)
Next you are gone (you're gone)
No matter what we must go on (I will go on)
Just keep the faith (keep your faith)
And let love lead the way (I know, I know, I know, ooh whoa)

You can be all that and still can be who you are
You gotta know for sure that it isn't make believe
You may feel weak but you are strong
Don't you give up if
If you keep holding on, you'll never be wrong
Just close your eyes cause it lies deep in your heart, yeah

Part of me laughs
Part of me cries (I cry)
Part of me wants to question why (question)
Why is there pain?
Why is there sunshine then the rain?
One day you're here (you're here)
Next you are gone (you're gone)
No matter what we must go on (I will)
Just keep the faith
And let love lead the way (lead the way)
Everything will work out fine
If you let love, love lead the way
Love lead the way

Jland angels past and present

I started this journal after I heard that Kim had passed away and recieved her wings. I had the chance to get to know Kim the Christmas of 06. She emailed me and asked if I was the one who had the two teenagers girls that was on The Giving Tree. How she knew this, I did not know. In the email she asked for my phone number, so I gave her my cell number thinking she's not going to call. Boy was I surprised when the phone rang a few minutes later. We talked about my girls their health problems, my son Kyle who passed away in October of 05.She told me about her girls and her son Jimmy. I told her my oldest son name is James. She also talked about how she liked taking pictures and told me about her photo journal. We talked for hours. A week later I recieved a christmas card from her and she had sent my girls some money to go out and buy themselves what they wanted.


I was really surprised by the giving and caring lady she was.

Who was I? Just someone who read her journal!


I found out I had Breast cancer two weeks before Kim found out she had it.I found strength, encouragement, support, humor in her journal. Some one who was going through what she was fighting the battle of her life. Had the courage to come to her journal and put down in words what she was going through.

Her last entry where she said a piece of bread confused her had me worried. She stopped emailing me. I continued to send her cards some she got some not.

I know Kim was an Angel for my girls on Christmas of 06. Christmas of 07 Kim became an Angel.

My friend you will be greatly missed.

This journal is not only for the Angels of 07 it is for all of JLand Angels. Past and present.


Thought you might want to know there are lovely Memorial Quilt Squares for the J-Landers that have passed, over at Stitched With Love. You might want to snag some & put them on your side bar. {{}}

Thank you.

In Memory Of All Our J-Land Angels

J-Lands Angels

 Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.
