Sad news for Balconeers

henryr10(z6 OH)February 3, 2007

A few years ago there was a group of Friends here at Balcony Gardening and over at Containers known as the Balconeers.

Several Members are still posting here I see.

It is my sad duty to inform you that Ebony Browne

(Known here as ebony or ebi to friends)

passed away on January 27th of Metastatic Breast Cancer at the age of 32.

She was a major force in the lives of many here then.

She remained a major force in my life and the lives of many of the Gardening Friends she made here.

Wow. I am so sorry to hear that. Thanks for letting us know Ric and although I hadn't seen her post in awhile, I wondered how things were going. Hopefully she is now in a peaceful place.

Nice to hear from you too Ric and hope things are going well!

Very sorry to hear that. In the past few years I've had two acquaintances die of cancer and a handful of friends-of-friends. It's all happened rather fast. Disturbing.

But good to hear from you. I've been out of the loop for a long time.

Rick, I have not been here at the balcony for quiet awhile. I remember ebony. I am so sorry we lost a great one. Thank you for letting us know. She will be remembered fondly.
