It hurts my heart to have to post this, but she died today after a prolonged illness.

Already I am hating the thought that we will never hear her voice and laugh at her quick wit.
Our prayers and support are directed towards Dean tonight as he comes to grips with this.
Please remember them in your prayers.

Oh my heart breaks reading this. I loved that dear woman. She was upfront, honest, and quick with wit. You always knew where you stood with her. I REALLY wanted to cruise with her again. I am sorry I never had the opportunity.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Dean and the family in their time of grief. . . . .

I am just heart broken.....Fleda was a very special lady. I do know that she is now with her beloved Keeper and that in it's self will give me peace. Dean, if you read this my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Bill and I were proud to know you both and enjoyed our times together. I never have a Bloody Mary without thinking of Fleda. Rest in peace my friend. And Fleda....give Buck a hug for me.....

How odd that I was just thinking of her this week when I saw a poster on another website who had a similar board name and was wondering about her and then came to see this. Sorry to hear Dean. I enjoyed meeting you on the CH@OS cruise. Like Tobyn, I find comfort in knowing that her beloved Keeper was waiting to meet up with her again.

I am also very sorry to read this. We never met either Fleda or Dean.

Prayers for Dean and all family to get through this difficult time.


So sorry to hear of Fledas passing. she was one of a kind . Quick wit and always made you feel at ease. I am full of fond memories of our first cruise together and the those to follow. Keeper was probably waiting for her at the Rainbow bridge. RIP

Niecie and have always had a bloody Mary on cruises for her.

I'm so sorry to read this. We enjoyed our time with Fleda and Dean. We still remember the fun we had at Atlantic City's Beachcomber Bar.

Fleda, we both wish you and Keeper Blue Skies and Following Seas.

Dean, our thoughts are with you in your sorrow. We often remember our wonderful lunch at Pancho's in Cozumel years ago. Fleeda was truly one of a kind and we'll always miss her!
