so sad, so sorry . . . . .

It was love at first post with Goofynina: When I first came to IHD, her posts just about jumped off the screen at me, filled as they were with warmth, light, and laughter, and she was a big part of what got me involved here. I feel privileged to have known her even for such a short while; what a shame to lose her so soon. 

Goodbye Susie, and (as she would say) Godspeed my friend.

I have always known that the one thing in life we can count on is death, but that doesn't make it any easier when it happens.  I know I was fooling myself when I thought I would sign on toady and hear good news about Susie's condition but that is what I was hoping for most.  I am very sadend by her passing but am glad that her pain and suffering is over and a new life can begin.  My love and sympathy go out to Sam, Susies's family and friends and our IHD family.  We have all lost someone very special in our lives and she will be missed.

Rest in peace Susie.  I dreaded coming on the site today because I was afraid I would see this news. This is so sad but at least Susie is no longer in pain.
My sincere condolences to Sam and the rest of Susies family including the IHD family.

I am completely stunned, and do not have the adequate words to describe my sadness at the news of Susie's passing. 

RIP dearest Goofynina! 

My sincerest condolences to Susie's family.

My God, until this thread I didn't even know her name was Susie!  In the short time I've been with IHD she was very kind to me and many, many others.  So welcoming, loving and, well um...goofy! :)  God Bless her and God Bless her husband, Sam.  I will miss her.   :'(

Great pictures Karol.

Sam (Boston) if you read this I want you to know that Susie worshipped the ground you walked on  :angel; ..well maybe not worshipped..( a little Goofynina humor) and she could not have found a better man. When we met in Las Vegas the Love you have for each other was so visible to the outside world. Watching as you unloaded those supplies and set her machine up and then break it all down again for a two day journey really takes someone special and requires that special love between two people that most never find. What a testament to all those caregivers in the world, God bless you all for being there through thick and thin. I know you are hurting and if we all miss Susie this much, I just can not imagine how bad you must be hurting to have lived day in and day out with such a loving person as she is. Please accept this as my condolence and know that I am only a phone call away and am available to talk anytime day or night.

We all loved your Susie so much, thank you for sharing your soul mate, your wife and at times your time to allow her to help those that needed her when perhaps it didn't always fit in to your schedule.

Goofynina and Epoman - Gone But Not Forgotten

WWW
« Reply #167 on: February 15, 2008, 02:17:11 PM »

I am right now in the classroom where I tutor students.  I just gave my student a poem to do a Poetry Comprehension.  I can't believe that this poem turns up today!

SWEET FAREWELL

Oh lovely rose
Quintessence of beauty
Only yesterday
You danced in the whispering wind;
Today,
Cupped in my hands
Are your golden petals
Your destiny and mine
Forever locked in sweet embrace

O blossom sweet
Today,
You smile,
Tomorrow,
You weep
And like a flash of lightning
In one fleeting breath
Sink into time's
Ceaseless ocean
Only a vision
Only a memory

Is it for this
Our sweet lives grow
Blossom, flourish
Perfume the world
With our sweet fragrances?
Only the glory of our lives
Only the beauty of our souls
Remain imperishable.
                        (Royards unpublished)

I somehow knew that there would be bad news when I logged on.. such a short life for a very loving derserving woman. What makes me smile, is as I said before, she is now home, she is with her greatest of friends Epoman, and is no longer in the claws of dialysis and pain. May you rest in peace Susie, along side your loved ones watching down on the rest of your loved ones and many other's who love you with all our heart.

R.I.P Susie, you shall forever be in my heart.  :grouphug; :cuddle;
