    Judith Cooke RIP

    Hi Everyone,

    Many of you will know Judith Cooke, as she was a frequent poster on the Forum. If you haven't heard already, I regret to tell you that she lost her battle with cancer in the early hours of this morning. We have been Forum friends for many years, and both particularly enjoyed the Fun & Games section. She will be missed. Condolences to husband Alan and daughter Alison.
    Sadly, Gill

    So sad to hear this news, I never met Judith but felt that I knew her through her ramblings about Seabourn.

    RIP Judith and condolences to her family.

    Such sad news, although I don't post much on here I did enjoy Judith's posts, I often caught up on the '5 word story' and ' answer a question with a question' to see how she was... I know how much you (Gill) and David (Barrowman) were so very kind and showed such huge support to her, keeping her as positive as could be, cheered her up as much as was possible in her poorly times....
    Hold on to that Gill, you have been a wonderful cyber friend to Judith and it showed in her posts how she appreciated you beng there....
    Bless her, may she rest in peace... Deepest sympathy to Alan and Alison xxx
    Thank you, Tracey, I find that a comfort. I will be contacting Alan to let him know of all your wonderful kind responses, which I am sure will be a comfort to him.

    I also didn't know Judith personally but felt I did know her a little from her posts. Very sorry to hear of her passing.

    and PMs were an outlet for her sadness, acceptance and frustration at times.

    It's good to talk folks and if being a member of an internet forum means you can connect and talk through your grief in private with folk you've become friends with but will probably never meet [think pen pals of the past] then all for the better.

    Dreadfully sorry to see this very sad news, I always read Judith’s posts with interest and sometimes also followed them on the games threads to see how she was doing.

    But I have to thank you guys on the games threads. I think you did very well in keeping her spirits up, particularly when she was feeling very low with another infection or hospitalisation.

    My sincere condolences to her husband and daughter.

    Judith won’t be forgotten on this forum, we will miss her Seabourn reminiscences. .

    I never met Judith but, reading her posts, I felt sad that her last months were spent living under such restrictions at this awful time, and that she was unable to cruise again when to do so would have given her much pleasure.

    My sincere condolences to her family and friends.

    We met Judith and Alan on Celebrity Eclipse 11 years ago. Although most of us knew that Judith was fighting cancer for some time, it is still very sad to hear that she has lost the battle.

    Our heartfelt condolences go to Alan and family at this very sad time.

    RIP Judith.
