I had to say good bye to a dear friend today.

She was an true inspiration to me and many others. I learned a lot from her about all sorts of things... and we had fun together and we laughed.

She was pretty cool too. She believed in speaking her mind and if needed, she bucked the system, much like we do... and by doing so, she won.

They insisted she would die without "their" treatment... and even if treated, she would only live 6 months. They tried to bully her to make her do what they thought was best and totally disregarded what she wanted.

They were very rude and hateful to her about the whole thing... so she finally told them to go sit on their hats and she went on and did as she pleased.

She lived another 2 1/2 years without their medicine... and was around to see her grand children- a very special dream of hers.

I guess the message to carry forward is to follow your heart and don't let the ducks get you down.

I'm sure missing her tonight. With her went a piece of my heart.

If anyone has a special prayer for her... it would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I am so sorry for your loss Tincup.

I will keep you and your friend in my prayers.

It's hard in this life to find true friends and it sounds like you had found that within her.

I am sure she she still with you and will know become your guardian angel.

All my best, kit

Tincup,

I am so sorry to hear this. I hope that, in your grieving, you can feel her love.

What you said: "carry forward" . . . "follow your heart"

Yes, that advice is a wonderful gift to hold and, perhaps, the only true way to live.


Hugs.

so very sorry Tin.....

it is so hard to find friendships that are as special as you and your friend had....and still have...you will always have that....

not many people in life get that gift of a true friend....

maybe instead of a piece of your heart going with her...maybe she left a piece of her heart with you....

thinking of you...

So sorry to hear of your loss TC. May the happy memories you shared keep her alive in your heart.

She sounds a lot like you, not giving in, doing what she thought was right, not what others told her. You can honor her spirit by continuing to live your life that way, as we know you will do.

[group hug]

Dear Tin,

Hold your friend close to your heart and keep her memory alive.

I am so sorry for your loss. It really hurts to loose a good friend.

My best friend died at the young age of 24 with cancer and that was 15 years ago.

Her memory is with me everyday and her picture on my wall.

I will say a special prayer for your friend. May she rest in peace now. [kiss]

--------------------
Hope your having a great day!

Karol

So sorry Tincup [group hug]

I think you can hold onto to that piece of your heart if you keep the memory of all she was alive in your heart [group hug]

Hoping you heal so the smiles of your memories outweigh the weight of the "missing" and grief. [group hug]

What a blessing to have a friend like that.

You must be devestated.

So sorry.

Glad that she went the way she wanted to though.

Her way.

Sending special prayers for both of you.

Thank you all for your prayers and kind words for my friend.

I smile and I'd bet she would too if she could see the notes you've left.

Thanks again.

Hi Tincup,

So very sorry for your loss.

The one thing that will never be able to be taken from you, is the beautiful memories you and your friend have made together.

I am happy that your friend was able to go with dignity and finish her last days the way she wanted.

Thank you for reminding us to follow our hearts.

Hugs to you,
