My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. I will always remember DS from the various g2gs that we attended together. I will always remember her for her giving and helping to those on this site as well as her smile and laughter that we shared over stories.

I just learned of this. I am so deeply sorry for your loss, MH. I am so sad and yet so grateful, two emotions that are at war with one another. She fought hard, her battle and our battles. She was there for us all. I'm so sorry

Thinking of you today MH. Wen the time comes that you can read these tributes, I hope the love just washes over you and carries you on the days when it seems like too much. I lurked for several years and then posted for the past 8. Reading these is a like a time machine of members who have come before and such a testament to the community, the family you and DS built. We all miss her so much and love both of you and yet we can't begin to touch the love you two shared and how much you grieve. But know that we are here, any time, any day, in any way that you need us. We hold you up in our hearts, in our prayers and in any way you need. ((((MH)))))

Me- BS
Him- FWS (I hope- F)

I just got back from vacation and read this. I am in complete shock. I am so very sorry MH. I never met DS but will always be grateful for her and you for giving me a lifeline when no one else would or could. My deepest sympathies. My heart is sad but I know DS is flying higher than ever before.

And remember Murphy is right. Nothing is so bad that it can't get worse!!!

No no no. This isn't how the story was supposed to end. F*ck.

I am so, so sorry, MH. Take care of yourself.

MH, I am so so sorry. I really had hope that DS would beat this. There are no words. All of the posters have spoken such wonderful sentiments and I agree with each and every one of them.

May all of the cherished memories be a comfort to you in the difficult days ahead. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers...

so so sorry .. no other words are fitting.. RIP strong lady

"Sorry" works when a mistake is made, but not when trust is broken. So in life, make mistakes, but never break trust. Because forgiving is easy, but forgetting & trusting again is sometimes impossible

MH, I am so sorry for your loss. She was an amazing lady and I'm glad I had the good fortune to meet her when I did. My prayers will be with you. Please let us know if there's anything this community can do to give back.
