In Loving Memory Joanne du Plooy
Until we meet again
16 January 1981 - 1 May 2013
"I'll lend you for a little while a child of mine" God said - For you to love the while she lives and mourn for when she's dead. It may be six or seven years or thirty one or two but will you, till I call her back, take care of her for me? She'll bring her charms to gladden you and, should her stay be brief, you'll have her nicest memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return but there are lessons taught below, I want this child to learn. I've looked the whole world over, in my search for teachers true, and from the things that crowd life's lane I have chosen you. Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labour vain, nor hate me when I come to take this lent child back again? I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done" for all the joys thy child will bring the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may, and for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay. But, should thy Angels call for her much sooner than we planned, we'll brave the grief that comes and try to understand. Joanne, we miss you so much. Mom, Dad & your brother Trevor. (Bob & Amanda Thorsen)
Our family was blessed when your daughter Angelika was born, she will be a blessing forever…

In Ouma’s back yard, up against the wall, is a space called Joanne’s Spot.  It has rose bushes. Here is a photo of a rose which blossomed there. This spot is far more important to Ouma & Oupa than Sheldon’s Spot is to Sheldon.  If you haven’t yet heard of Sheldon, see the website of the Big Bang Theory.  
“Death is not extinguishing the light - it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come” Rabindranath Tagore But in our selfishness we would have preferred her to stay with us…
