I am so sorry for your loss. It just seems like too much tragedy for one beautiful family to have had to endure in one lifetime. I wish I had words to share that would soothe you and bring you peace.
What a legacy she has left behind. I am moved by all the love, respect and gratitude that is evident from all the posts by everyone here for her, you and all that you have both done for those of us who were searching for some kind of answers or support as we were reeling from the devastation that had found our lives. What the two of you created here for the rest of us is priceless and has kept many of us surviving and putting one foot in front of the other where, without the support of this incredible community, we may not have been able to have done.
What you both did for all those who are touched by infidelity cannot be quantified. We can never repay the two of you for giving so much of yourselves in order to help the rest of us. I wish that there was something that we could do in turn to help you through this time. We have all been benefitted so greatly by her existence and if we feel her loss so greatly, I cannot imagine her impact on you and your family. I will be sending peace, strength, love and hope your way; you deserve so much more..... ((MH))

It's hard to put in words the feelings of having lost DS. No way, too soon, please don't be real, fuck cancer, are a few words that come to mind but those describe the situation, not what she means to me or this community. The words that come to mind about knowing what little I did about DS from the boardsand PMs are: kind, compassionate, funny, loving, silly, people do change, loves MH to the ends of the earth, selfless to name a few. ((((MH))))

Dear MH, friends and family,
I am also in shock and want to offer my most sincerest condolences. I have no words but the SI community has expressed my feelings better than I ever could.

I am so very sorry to read this. DS was always a force to be reckoned with, always there to support. MH, my deepest condolences. It is sad yet wonderful to see all the "old" faces DS is bringing together on this thread. She was very much loved and cherished.

Words cannot adequately convey my sorrow for your loss of your beloved DS. I am so, so sorry.
I never met her IRL but whenever she posted, her calm, sincere love always came thru.
Sending hugs to you and your family.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Mangled Heart. What you and Deeply Scared have given to the community is a legacy that will live on. She is immortal here but I am sure that is small comfort. I hope that your wonderful memories of her one day help to ease the pain you feel now. My thoughts are with you.

MangledHeart, I can say little that hasn't already been said by earlier posters, but I, too, want to share my sadness at the news of Deeply Scared's death and to offer my condolences.
Life is often cruelly unfair. I am so very sorry that you have been separated from your true "other half" so prematurely, and so quickly, by this cruel illness. It was clear from Deeply Scared's most recent posts that you could not have done more to show your love for her, as you supported, protected and cared for her during her illness and did everything you could think of to to make her happy and comfortable. And Deeply Scared's own love for you shone through her posts. I'm glad that her wish to be with you again on her favourite holiday was granted, though I'm sure that it has made your own grief no less difficult to bear. I am sure that it was very hard for you to come here and post a message yourself, in order to share the news that all of us here had dreaded but would obviously want to know. Thank you so much for doing so - your act of kindness is greatly appreciated.
My heart goes out to you and, like everyone else on SI, I'm sure, I shall be thinking of you during the weeks and months to come and will never forget Deeply Scared, her courage during her illness and all the good that the two of you have I achieved through this site.
As for so many others, SI was instrumental in helping me through the dark days when life no longer seemed worth living and in saving my marriage. Even though my own Dday was almost eight years ago, I've stayed around herje, reading and occasionally posting, and intend to remain a paying member for as long as I can afford it. It's the only thing I can do to "give back"in some small way. It's so little, in comparison to what SI has done for me. (In my opinion, SI did a lot more for my marriage than did all those couples counseling sessions we had.) My heartfelt thanks. I am so very sorry that you and your wife have not been granted the very long joint life and happiness together that you so richly deserved and that your work will afford to so many others. Like so many other members, past and present, I shall be eternally grateful to you and to Deeply Scared. And I mourn her untimely passing.
With gratitude and in sadness,

I have tried for 2 days to come up with the words to convey my feelings, I can't find any.
MH, I'm so sorry for your loss.
DS was awesome. I always felt honored when she would answer my pm's. Even though I usually felt like I was inconveniencing her and my issue was trivial, she never made me feel that way. She always made me feel like my issue was the most important issue.
MH, let us know if you need anything, no matter how small of a need you think it is.
