Hello everyone I would like to announce that I'll be taking a break from this forum. I don't know if I'll ever be coming back. The passing of Lucile Randon is just too much for me to handle. I feel physically sick to my stomach because I'm so upset. I feel as though I've lost a family member. I just can't take it anymore. I really admired Lucile and it pains me so much when a great person like her has to die. Why do we have so much pain in this world? I miss Lucile. Even though I never met her in person, I miss her. It feels as though someone hammered a nail straight through my heart and pierced out a small hole. And I don't know if the vacant place in my heart can ever be healed. I'm crushed beyond belief. Deep down I just wanted Mrs. Randon to be happy. I would've done anything to keep Mrs. Randon alive because I wanted her to have more happy days. She deserved 'em. 

Special thanks to Ale, ChrisR, Mendocino, Marco, JimJim00, Diego, 903310, and all the wonderful friends I've made on here. I really appreciate your help and comfort. You people are my family Away from family if you know what I mean. Peace be with you all.

I was also very moved by your statement. 

All people who really loved this unique Catholic nun are devastated, but it was God´s will.

I deeply hope you feel better soon and will return. Big hugs.

Hi Aquanaut_Chalk.

Im sorry to read of your severe distress.

I’ve been following supercentenarians since Eugenie Blanchard was the WOP (basically mid 2010) and what I can say is that this is the saddest I’ve ever personally felt when a WOP has passed away.

Come back onto the site in a few weeks and just “surf around” the posts on it. Quite likely you’ll want to be involved in some shape or form.

Sadly, death is a regular price to pay for this area of human achievement that we all love; but as I may have said before; the supercentenarians themselves are usually very comfortable and ready, when their time comes.

Being the caring person she was I’m sure Sister Andre would want you to stick at something you have a passion for.

But sometimes a break is the right thing, so I wish you well during this period.

Cheers

Chris

Dear Aquanaut Chalk,

 

My condolences to you, as it seems Mrs Randon's death has greatly affected you. As noted above, deaths are common when following supercentenarians is one of your hobbies, and especially for those that have lived to a grand, old age - such as Mrs Randon - it is harder to let them go, seeing you've also known them for longer.

 

However - and please note that in no way I am trying to play down your sadness - also realise that we only get to know these supercentenarians for a shorter (ten years max) period of time, and so always be prepared that we will have to let them go at some point. Perhaps this will help you cope with future supercentenarian deaths a bit better.

 

As for now, take care, and take the time you need to cope with Mrs Randon's death. Just know that you are always more than welcome to return here.

 

Kind regards,

Admin
