Sam let us know when you hear anything. I won't call or interupt. We don't want too many of us calling. I haven't received an email from Sadie or her friend or nurse. Keep us posted. Thanks

Well on another forum Suzie best friend wrote that she is not in any pain and is resting very peacefully but that she has not been able to respond at all since 2pm on Friday. Well all I can say is that we need to say please rest in peace and it is ok to go to Suzie.. That is the only way.. Sam

Tonight around 6:30 Suzie left this world for sights to behold.
She was longing for this day to come to fruition.
She wanted to be pain free.
Suzie was 36 and fought this disease for 18 years.
She was a struggler and a fighter.
Keep her and her family in your thoughts.
Suzie is happy.
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

Sheryl,

Thank you so much for letting us know...I have a very heavy heart, as Suzi really touched me in the short time we got to know each other.

I know I do not stand alone in saying how fortunate I feel for havving the opportunity to know her in this lifetime.

I will keep her folks in my thoughts as they move through these next days.

I will miss her so very much, but cherish the times we communicated.

Susie

Susie was a kind, selfless, compassionate person who I will keep in my thoughts and memory. I am glad to have known her this past year and I'm sure she's made an impact on other people as well. She was a great example to me with her brave battle against scleroderma. I will never forget Susie.

My thoughts go out to her family.

Sheryl ~

Thanks for letting us know about "Sadie".

It is so sad to hear of one so young to be taken by this disease. It is really to bad that modern day medicines couldn't give her a longer life. I know she will be at peace now & I hope her family can live with this fact. Living in pain is very exhausting.

My thoughts are with her family now, as I know she is finally free.

Sheryl thanks for letting us all know. I am glad that she was pain free in her last days. She was a very courageous, giving and kind person. Is there some way that the board can convey both our regrets to her family and our appreciation to them for Suzie's loving kindness that we all experienced during her lifetime? Could her friend just notify her family how much she meant to all of us on the board and convey our sympathy to them?

Sheryl,
Thank you so much for letting us know about Suzie. I know it was a hard thing for you to do. I had no idea she was only 36 years old. What a strong woman! She will be missed.

Warms hugs for all of her family.

Sheryl:

My heart is so heavy as I read your message this evening, the tears keep streaming down. What impressed me so much about Suzi was her upbeat attitude whether it be her situation or situations of all of us on this forum. Her urge to be there for us up until the end instead of wallowing in despair was incomprehenable to me, but her belief in her faith forged her to be there every step she could. I was new here, she reached out and befriended me immediately. She formed what she called our support team which included KarenLee and myself. We would pass emails between the three of us, if for anything, to at least express if the sun is shining that day. She loved when her parents would open her windows. The window is now open and she is free. Bless you Suzie.........I love you. Please hug and kiss Truman and Zachary for me. They'll always be your companions.

Linda

It is what it is...........

Thank you for letting us know. 36 is so young, and she was so upbeat in her posts throughout her fight...which amazes me... I mean she just exuded peace & joy in her posts, as well as her courage & strength. My thoughts are with her family & friends here & at home.

Suzi always came across as being positive and a very caring person even though she was suffering so much herself. It is difficult to express in words about such a special person but now she will be at peace. My thoughts are also with her family over the coming days.

Sheryl ,

What a sad way to start the day.....I am so glad that Sadie is 'perfect' now and not in pain, though. I had no idea she was so young. My sympathies and thoughts to her friends and family. Her faith shined through for all to see.........

Take care, Everyone.

Thank Sheryl for posting I too was coming on here to post what her friend Darlen wrote... I will have to ask for permission to Shelley but I hope she will let it slide just this once.. Suzie was a fighter and every time I had spoke with her she always seem to be uplifting and in good spirits.. I will miss her.. But I know she is in a better place... Sam

Sheryl thank you for letting us know.

Suzie will be missed terribly. Her positive attitude and always knowing what to say in any situation is what I will remember most. She always had kind words and was still willing to help others even when she was struggling. Amazing....
