Merry Christmas to you both xx
Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it’s bad - it's experience.

Thank you all for your support through this journey. DS is my best friend and will always have a place in my heart. She put up a fight like I've never witnessed before.
Her favorite day of the year is Christmas. She made it. We celebrated together and made every effort to make it the best Christmas ever.
My dearest DS passed away at 2:07am Christmas morning. She loved you all very much and held tightly your words of encouragement and strength.
She fought hard. She was my hero. And I will always carry and cherish our memories together. We renewed our vows on December 21st and she was so excited.
By the afternoon of the 24th she was no longer responsive. But she was aware that we were there for her all the way to the end. She was not alone and she wasn't afraid or in pain.
Rest in Peace Deeply Scared

MH....I know its been years since I've posted here . This site, and you and DS personally helped us to graduate from here and recover our lives. I want you to know how much meeting both of you and spending time in your home and at Pappasitos will always be treasured memories for me.

For the old timers who remember me, DS and I were best friends. We met on the site and a friendship grew into something so beautiful. I flew from Tallahassee to be with her on Christmas, and am thankful we had that time together. My heart is breaking. I love her so very much. I take comfort in the fact that she went peacefully on her favorite day of the year, and was surrounded by love. She touched so many lives and while this earth will have an incredible void without her here, heaven has gained a beautiful angel. Rest in peace my dear friend, until we meet again. Xoxoxoxo

MH, my deepest condolences brother. If there is anything I can do don't hesitate to ask. Like she did for thousands of others, DS made my life better. Sand and I love her dearly. We are lucky to count you as friends and I'll always cherish the memories of the times we got together. I'll shut up now.

No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There is only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to.

it's been many years since I visited here, but I had to come back to give my heartfelt sympathy to you MH. There's no words to adequately express what DS meant to so many of us. She was and is an angel. May you find comfort MH.
