I am very sad to inform you all that one of the staunch Anemonas team has passed away. I have just been told by 3x7 that our dear puzzle friend, Maria, passed away last week after a short but very fatal illness. I am sure all our thoughts will be with her family and friends at this time.

Sleep well Maria.

We said it so often after an exciting puzzle evening/night:
Welterusten (sleep well).

So one more time:
Welterusten, Maria!

Oh that is terrible news. My deepest sympathy goes out to her family and friends & fellow Anemonas.

Rust zacht Maria.

Oh my gosh - I just don't even know what to think or say.  It is moments like this that remind me that life is so fleeting.

My most heartfelt sympathy to Maria's family and to her close friends too - I know that you will miss her terribly.  Rust in vrede, Maria.

That is really sad news.
I think I recall that the Anemonas had to deal with another terrible loss in their puzzle comunity, only a few years ago.

Sterkte voor Maria's gezin en de Anemonas.
Slaap zacht Maria
