With living she taught us how to die; with dying she taught us how to live. Thank you for the lessons, Ronda. You were a "stranger" I came to know, love, admire, cherish and be proud of. I am thankful all your worries and pain are behind you and I pray that everyone in heaven is just waiting for you to get there and help them work on their doll houses RIP dear friend; I am richer for having known you.
Glo - thank you for sharing this heartbreaking, but expected, news with us. And, Calgon, thank you for arranging for us to meet this brave Butterfly in San Francisco one month and one day ago.
May she rest in peace in God's arms, and may He comfort her family and friends. Mary Ann
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t grieve for me, for now IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m free. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m following the path God has laid, you see. I took His hand when I heard Him call. I turned my back and left it all. ~~~ I could not stay another day. To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that peace at the close of the day. ~~~ If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Oh yes, these things I too will miss. ~~~ Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My lifeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been full, I savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s touch. ~~~ Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee! ~~~ God wanted me now Ã¢â‚¬â€œ He set me free!
May she rest in peace. I was lucky to meet her twice. When she first became ill she wrote such great messages . I had saved them in my Addicts e mail which I lost during one change over. I had planned to print them to keep and share and reread. Sail on Mari( I always c alled her this and in SF she said rembmer my name is Rhonda.)
