Exclamation Vanilla Bean Has Passed

I was so saddened to receive a PM from Mark, VB's boyfriend today informing me that VB had passed

She was suffering an illness for the last 2-3 months sadly

Mark told me that VB's internet friends meant a lot to her and that she loves cheese, so I hope where you are now VB in that better place, they have a whole lot of different cheeses for you

You will be very much missed by me and I am sure by the whole forum, you were a lovely friendly lady whose company I very much enjoyed

R.I.P Vanilla Bean

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

What? Oh no! Thank you, Kylie, for letting us know. How terribly sad. R.I.P., Vanilla Bean.

Please convey our condolences to Mark and to her family.
She who dies with the most toys, wins.

our vanilla is gone? this is very sad and disturbing news indeed. she was the gentlest, sweetest of souls. and boy, she was my kind of cook--generously sharing photos of her lovely down-home dishes, and freely offering cooking tips and encouragement. losing our sweet vanilla, and our good friend tim a while back, brings me to the sudden recognition that our dc group truly is a "family" in our own way, a most visceral way, today....

I am so sorry to hear this.
Our prayers are for her family and friends.

Oh, my! I was just thinking about her the other day as I hadn't seen her around. We lived so close on opposite sides of the border and often said we should meet at the Peace Arch some day. Unfortunately we left it too long.

VB, you were very near and dear to all of us here. You will be missed, specially by me. I know you are not suffering and that you will be making your comfort food for the angels! Thoughts and prayers to your Mark and your family. RIP my friend.

Oh my. I just don't know what to say. She was such a sweetie. I'm sort of gobsmacked actually.

I'll miss her.
