After enjoying Pebble's tales for years it was a joy to finally met and talk with her on the Health Forum.
Such courage and determination, such an upbeat and humorous attitude.

To her Family:
Know she was adored here. Wear your scarves proudly!

My, my... so sorry to hear although unfortunately it looked probable.

I really liked pebble a lot... who else will I be able to talk to about the nuances of olive oil?

Big hugs to her family; she talked so much about Alex that I almost feel like I know him.

Pebble was the first DGer I met in person, she was one of the very first from the PNW. I just saw her this spring and she was such a sweet character. We will miss her on Healthy Living but now she enjoys complete health more than any of us. God rest her soul. Prayers for her family. Joann

I am so saddened to hear of another one of my DG friends passing on. I have known Pepple since she came to DG and have enjoyed her posting on many subjects. We all missed her when she moved to Turkey, but we got to experience that countries lifestyle and foods.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

Rest in peace Pebble.

Good Morning to all friends of Pebble.

When Pebble's sister called yesterday to tell me she had passed away, she asked me to convey the following:

"Please thank everyone at Dave's Garden for their prayers, kindness, generosity, gifts, and all the joy that all of you brought to Pebble."

I assured her that Pebble brought joy to everyone's life that she touched.

vic - thanks for letting me know. In fact, yesterday, I was going through some old pictures on my computer and looked at one of her from when I visited her in Turkey. She was gracious enough to let me visit her and her family for several days in Bodrum when I was traveling in Turkey. So much fun and laughter - and the world is poorer for the loss of her bright soul. I always admired her for her sense of life and spirit - she was truly magnetic. I am glad she had so many friends and family to ease her through this - pebble, I know it's been quite a while since we've talked, but I hope you have comfort. My most healing thoughts for her family. ~Sandra

This has been a long and difficult Journey for our dear Pebble and her Family and Friends here at Dave's Garden. The outpouring of every one's love and support and prayers for her is evident in how much she was loved by so many. What news received on her condition gave us hope that she would be able to recover from this dreaded disease. May she now be at peace and find family and good companions to welcome her into the next Journey. She is at rest now and her spirit will linger in our hearts that we may be just as strong and determined when we come to the end of our own Journey. Let this truth guide our lives to be more loving/caring to one another in all that we do.

My heart goes out to each you in your time of sorrow and to Pebble’s Family. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and whose have touched yours are always a part of you, At times like this it is difficult to find the words which bring meaning and comfort. I trust that this poem will bring you peace, comfort and strength.

Those we love are never really lost to us--
we feel them in so many special ways--
through friends they always cared about
and dreams they left behind,
in beauty that they added to our days...
in words of wisdom we still carry with us
and memories that never will be gone...
Those we love
are never really lost to us--
for everywhere their special love lives on

We shall miss Pebble but have wonderful memories from the first time we met knowing that she was our “gift” from God and it was meant to be! God has been using her for His purpose, leading her and holding her heart and hand all the way.
As Long As You Can Hold Some One In Your Heart, You Can Never Loose Them

He Leadeth Me

In pastures green? Not always; sometimes He
Who knoweth best, in kindess leadeth me
In many ways where heavy shadows be.
Out of the sunshine warm and soft and bright -
Out of the sunshine into the darkest night,
I oft would faint with sorrow and affright,
Only for this – I know He holds my hand;
So whether in the green or desert land
I trust although I may not understand.
And by still waters? No, not always so;
Ofttimes the heavy tempests round me blow,
And o’er my soul the waters and billows go.
But when the storms beat loudest and I cry
Aloud for help, the Master standeth by
And whispers to my soul, “Lo, it is I.”
Above the tempest wild I hear Him say,
“Beyond this darkness lies a perfect day.
In every path of thine I lead the way.”
So whether on the hilltops high and fair
I dwell, or in the sunless valleys where
The shadows lie – what matters? He is there.
So where He leads me, I can safely go,
And in the blest hereafter I shall know
Why, in His wisdom, He hath led me so.
– Rev. John F. Chaplain

What a great pic, Vic. She was so happy on that day!

Sorry to hear of her "moving on" but I'm happy to know that she is now out of harms way.

Pebble shared a few great recipes with me...I sure am glad we had that rapport. And now those recipes really have extra meaning to them, not just good eating!

Am thinking of Pebble today. And, just as importantly, thinking of her Family, sending them wishes and prayers of strength.

i am so sorry to hear Pebble left us. i am so sad, but glad in a way cuz she is free from all her sufferings and pain.

Pebble and i go a long way ... from sharing our problems including recipes we exchange thru the years. whenever Pebble travels, she pop in d-mail or email inquiring about certain "new" ingredients to her during her travel, specially her trip to far east asia. Pebble and i share exploring and learning food from other countries. Pebble is more than a friend, more like a sister from far away land.

i know how bad it is to feel losing a love one. i lost my father last month... my condolence to Pebble's family, my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Pebble, i know u are freed from all the pains. u are now safe in the hands of God! i will miss u terribly Dearest Pebble.

I met Pebble 7 years ago when I was out that way for son Dan's wedding. She cooked a delicious brunch for me, daughter Susie, and son Dave. She was so gracious, a great cook, and had an artistic mind.

She reminded me of a person who lived life to the fullest. Although it is sad that her life on earth is over, I'm glad for her that she has entered eternal life.

May God bless her family.

For many years, we kept in touch through the Healthy Living threads, and most recently on Facebook, too. I am going to miss my friend! My love and prayers go out for her family and friends.

I am just now reading this. I am so sad about this. She was such a kind hearted person. We used to talk about how she couldn't always find the herbs and ingredients we talked about in recipes and so we talk of ways to improvise. She was a wonderful cook, a good wife, mother and friend. She will be dearly missed.

What an infectious smile in her pictures, she always seemed to be smiling.

Prayers going out to her family and friends.

This multifaceted lady left a giant hole...one that will never be completely refilled. My love and condolences to her family...God has her in his loving arms now, and you can just bet she's basking in the knowlege of all the anwers to life's unanswered questions...but, she is free...and she is still loved, as always.

Remember to drink your waters ladies!!!!!! My goodness if that is not Pebble's refrain , I don't know whose it is. This delightfuly spunky lady made me laugh at times when I thought the sun was never going to shine again. Do you all remember her aerial shots of the baby birds hatching waaaaay back in 2003 I think?
There is 1 less star shinning tonight up in that vast sky of ours and it was a particularlly brilliant shining star. Pebble's son and daughter you were so fortunate to have had such a spirited lady as your mother. May her spirit live on in both of you.
To Pebble's family my sincerest sympathies. You have all been blessed with the presence of a marvelous lady in your ife. Please treasure her memories and keep them alive.

I check this forum every now and then and I just stumbled on this tonight. I'm so sad to hear this. I didn't even know Pebble had been ill. I too am from the early days of DG and was lucky enough to meet Pebble in person. We met at a local Home and Garden Show along with a few other DGer's back in 2001, I think it was. Pebble was the kind of person you felt completely comfortable with from the start. She was so warm and friendly. I liked her immediantly.
I remember she invited me over to her beautiful home after the garden show. She gave me a lot of starts from her beautiful plants that day. I still have those plants. She was such a lovely person. She will be missed. My thoughts are with her family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into an angel, and flies up to tell God to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to the world, and sings a silent prayer that makes the rain cry.
People disappear, but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to bed, wake up the grass, and spin the earth in dizzy circles.
Sometimes you can see them dancing in a cloud during the day-time, when they're supposed to be sleeping.
They paint the rainbows and also the sunsets and make waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to wishes.
And when they sing wind-songs, they whisper to us, don't miss me too much.
The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.

Vicky (vic) has received a note from Pebble's Sister.
As Vicky is currently dealing w/ a Family illness she asked if I would forward this message.

I've taken the liberty of editing out a personal note to Vicky and Pebble's obituary as Joan has added it in the opening Thread.
Ric

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
... we shall see how
I can go about it, but I want to make it happen.
I will be taking Pebble's ashes back to Turkey
with me next summer, and scattering them
in the turquoise colored Aegean Sea off of
Bodrum, where she lived for 5 years. This was
her wish.

Please tell everyone at Dave's Garden how much she
enjoyed their friendship over all these years - and their
kindness and generosity when she told them she was
ill and diagnosed with cancer. So many people were
so sweet and generous - it really meant a lot to her
and touched both of our hearts. DG members are the
BEST!!

Thank YOU,
love and hugs,
Moyra
