Heidi I'm at a loss for words and that doesn't happen often.Through the years I have thought of you as one of my good 'cyber friends'we shared grandmother thoughts and doings more than once.I hope whatever the complications are get ironed out well for you.You have been so good on this site and have provided us all with such good information and support.Know that I will miss you as much as all the others who have responded to your post.Take care of yourself and please let us know how you are by being on here once in a while.Kiss and enjoy the grandbabies.Lots of warm hugs and big smiles.Mary-La.

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for all of your kind words!! Reading all of your replies brought tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart. This really is the greatest place for encouragement and support thanks to all of you!!

I will be offline for a few weeks, but then I promise to be back to check in once and while.

Wishing each of you the very best of everything.

Hi Heidi,

Mere words can't say how absolutely fabulous you have been as Sclero Forums Manager all these years! My goodness, it is nearly impossible to imagine you not being Manager. You've been an absolute delight to work with, always keeping us on track with everything -- and making it seem effortless to provide nonstop love and support and information for our members, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

I hope you have a terrific time off, for the next few weeks. I miss you already! And I look forward to hearing from you again very soon. You've always been simply de tops, in every way. And to top it off, you've done a tremendous job in selecting and training Carrie as our new Manager, too, making it a completely seamless transition. Well, I have tears in my eyes, so it's hard to keep on typing.

Hurry back!!!
Warm Hugs,

Hi Heidi,

I have been off the board for a time and just now read your note. I'm so sad that you will be leaving us as manager. In the 3 years I've been a member, I have always admired your talent, wisdom, genuine concern, encouragement, professionalism and most of all, your spirit. It always shines through! Many times I've thought how very lucky we were to have you around.

May you have many sun-shiney days ahead! You're fabulous! You're the best!

Your friend,

I haven't been on in a long time, and I was quite surprised to see your post when I did log on this morning.

I'm so sorry to see you go as manager. You are one of the first ones to take me "under you wing" so to say when I first found these boards a couple of years ago, and your kind and and encouraging words meant the biggest difference in my life.

I so hope that your "complications" move on and out of your life so you can concentrate on you. Remember to not let the stress get to you, You know what that can do to us! And also know that I am sending Happy, Happpy, Happpppy thoughts to you!

Thank you for all your great advice and shoulder to cry on!

Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee
