I told Okarol and Vandie at Susie's visitation that I couldn't make any more new friends because it hurt so much to lose them.  But my life is so much richer for having known her.  It was an honor to know her.

Oh my girls, there is nothing Susie would want more than for us to come together like this and remember her and take care of each other on IHD.  She was a light -- our light -- on IHD that will always shine.

Glad to see that it wasn't just me that stayed away and I know, that is not what Susie would have wanted.
So, I am back and hopefully will feel like reading and posting. Oh wait a minute, I am reading and I did just post. :yahoo;
 It feels good to be back.
Thank you everyone and I miss you Goofynina.
Have a great night!

Thank you, Goofynina, for leaving behind all of your posts so that I can get to know you and love you like everyone else. You, obviously, were one hell of a beautiful woman!

« Reply #330 on: April 22, 2008, 05:23:20 PM »

I had a very sad moment today.  I was sending some pictures to some friends and as I scrolled through my Yahoo contact list, there was Epoman's email address, and soon after Goofynina's email address (twice - as Goofynina and then as Susie Trevino) .  I am not even able to delete them. I miss them so much!

 I was going through my email today and I found many of hers. I'm so glad I saved them. I was really fortunate to be on her email list. I could feel what a joyful person she was just through her words. I miss her joy and her heart. We love and miss you Goofynina.

I feel I knew Susie but I got here after she was gone.  No matter, she's made me laugh and I mean out loud and from the belly.  What a huge heart and a personality to match.  Some people are truly gifts to the world no matter how long they're actually in it and Goofynina was definitely one of those people.

I just checked into the El Cortez in Vegas with a friend of mine and I almost broke down crying -- I could see Susie with her boa and tiara playing the slots...  It is very bittersweet today.

So sad to Here about GOOFYNINA. She seemed so full of life and fun reading GOOFYNINA posts. Nothing else to say, so many friends have past away on dailysis or because of dialysis.

God Bless Susie (GOOFYNINA)

Hi,

I also miss Suzie very much, eeven tho I got
to know her mostly when I was lurking here,
afraid to post.  (Actually I was very afraid of
what was happening to my husband, and was
in a bit of denial about it)  Suzie's posts were
always so great to read.  She truly had a very
special way about her.

RIP, Goofygirl-  you are so missed!!

« Reply #340 on: April 28, 2008, 03:44:53 PM »

A lady working in the booth next to mine at the airport (Hertz) asked me about dilabetes and dialysis, because I use her computer sometimes to go on the Internet when I am at work and she saw the site I was on.  I went to our members' pictures to show her my picture on dialysis (she knew absolutely nothing about it) and as I scrolled down, I saw a beautiful picture of Susie and Sam.  It was hard to have to tell her that we lost Susie.  I was laughing and crying at the same time.  Susie was saying that you must remember that you gain 10lbs by a camera and that there must have been about 8 cameras on her that day!  My special girlfriend!!

I remember distinctly at least two times when my Son was feeling like the whole world hated him and I know he felt no one understood him and how he would want to go to his myspace in hopes that Susie had posted a comment for him. She was always so understanding, and took the time to ask him how he was doing and then she would call him on his cell phone. He always felt like he mattered to someone.( sometimes parents can't do it alone) I remember how saddened he was when she died, the look in his eyes said I finally found someone who is genuinely happy to talk to me and this is what happens.

I know right now Susie is very proud of Josh because he got a great score on his Asvab test today. 68 the national average is 41.  :thumbup;

Thanks Sluff, I am glad Josh had some time with Susie. Funny how she made us all feel so special. And yet it seemed effortless. She's a real diamond in the rough.

You can say that again!!  She had a wonderful generous loving heart.  Sometimes it was hard to imagine that we were so apart geographically, culturally and ethnically.  Yet I felt so close to her!  Unbelievable!!

Me with Baron von Fresenius

« Reply #346 on: May 11, 2008, 09:56:08 PM »

I was just listening to some hymns on my computer, and one of my favourite southern gospel songs, "Life's Railway to Heaven" came on my playlist, and the last line made me think of Susie.

As we roll across the trestle,
Spanning Jordan's swelling tide,
We behold the union depot,
Into which our train will glide,
There we meet the Superintendent,
God the Father, God the Son,
With a hardy, joyous greeting,
Weary pilgrim, welcome home.

I just thought of all the warmth she brought to everyone who knew her, and how her long journey is over and she's in God's (and Epoman's) embrace. I just wanted to share that (after wiping the tears of my computer  :'( )

I was just thinking the other day how much she would have totally enjoyed these crazy threads that we have in the Off-Topic section.  I could just imagine the kinds of comments she would have in the Last Post loves IHD Most Thread.   I miss her so much!!
