Very sad. :(
On the bright side - the Netherlands seem to be a sensible country where people can wish for euthanasia. Or rather get their wish granted.

I'm glad that she's going to be out of the tremendous pain that she's currently in, but will miss her jolly posts a lot.

Rest in Peace, Mari.

I know it is upsetting, as you are going to miss her, but you should focus on her vibrancy and humour, and that she made you laugh.
Give Thanks that you knew her, and that she is no longer suffering.

And that she lived in a country enlightened enough to allow euthanasia.

Sorry to hear that, Bouncy! But at least she won't suffer anymore!

((((hugs)))) But she's in control of her own ending, a luxury in some circumstances.

Oh Bouncy. When you first told me I didnt realise she lived in the Netherlands. I didnt realise she had an "end by" date (and in no way do I mean that in an offensive or flippant way). Im so sorry. 66 is so young. Then again my brother is only in his 50's. Who are we fooling. No time is a good time to die.
