Wendy writes: "I had previously met 3 of the 4 people from Jooly's Joint who came to my party - funnily enough, the one I hadn't met lived the closest to me!! When we all met, we talked as if we had always known each other - we just carried on as if we we still in the chatroom - nothing had changed! I feel very privileged that people had travelled so far to be with me to celebrate my birthday - it meant so much to me."

Very sadly, John had a fatal heartattack a few weeks after returning to the US. John had been a member of Jooly's Joint for many years and had a great number of friends here. Wendy's friendship with John was very special, with John travelling all the way from the US to help celebrate Wendy's birthday. John will be missed by all his friends at JJ, and we all feel very lucky to have known him and to have shared his friendship.
