Last night on David Letterman he had a guest from Australia who did hand puppet formations.
It was amazing really but during his presentation the music he had playing was What a Wonderful World.
Anyway I sat there watching it with tears streaming.  I don't think I'll ever hear that song again without
thinking about Goofynna.  I really miss her.

WOW....I am so shocked to read this....I don't get online often anymore and wow....I have no words.  She was always so kind to me in her posts and made me feel so comfortable and welcome, and to a newbie with a loved one facing such a serious condition, I will say it meant the world to me...what a kind woman and I will keep her family in my prayers....

I have excepted the loss of our Goofynina and I find myself taking a piece of her personality and applying it in my posts, and because of Goofynina I have a better appreciation for others. I have faced reality that life is so very fragile and as a person get older the impact is so great when you can talk to someone one day and the next day they are gone. I know that my last words to her is that IHD members really love you and I love you and don't worry about IHD, it is in good hands. I'm going to misss you hun.  :'(

We need to be strong for our Epoman and Goofynina because I firmly believe that they are guiding us. Here is a picture that Epoman and I pulled a joke on Goofynina when we were on chat and this represents the kind of relation ship we had. We had a lot of laughs.

Goofynina and Epoman - Gone But Not Forgotten

This is tremendous, Sluff (Sludge, Sulfa, Fluffy).  IHD is definitely in good hands.  The same way that it was after Epoman passed, the same way we will continue to make sure that this goes on from strength to strength.  I continue to  thank God that certain things were done before they passed that they would know how much we loved them.  I think of the gifts to Epoman from IHD, and Susie's time in Vegas!  How fitting that they felt our love before they left us!!
I agree that we have to use every opportunity to let people know how much they mean to us, when we have the time.

Sluff..... ditto from me!  It truly is the laughs and the good times that we will remember most.  Let's make sure we continue to do this in Epoman's and Goofynina's memories.  It think they would want us to do that.

It is strange but I feel sort of guilty or something because in December when my heart stopped
and I was revived and I made it but Goofynina didn't and she is younger than me and had a husband who
loved her dearly and mine did too but he is gone.  But then I have 2 sons and a grandson.  I guess it is just  matter of
being your time to go or not time to go.  It is not in our hands.  I do know that I appreciate life much more
even through the tough times.  Goofy lived each day to the fullest and that's what we all need to do.

Sorry I haven't been online in awhile. This message was at the top of the list of unread mesages. Thought it was gonna be something funny with the topic Goofynina, but that thought was soon to turn into tragidy. I was shocked to read through the post. She was the one who got me to  loosen up in the chat room with her humor. I will miss chatting with her,  her comments, messages, and humor.

Peace be with you my friend.

This is not the first..... or second...... or third...... or even eighth time I have looked at these threads....   I keep coming back, hoping it was all a bad dream.  No such luck.  I will miss Goofynina so much.  She always lightened my mood.  Her loss is a deep one for all of us.  My prayers are with Sam and the rest of her family.  Peace be with you.

I haven't been on in awhile for reasons to deep to talk about. I was sent a message however when Susie passed. She was and still is a important part of this family. I will always remember her comments to many threads i wrote. And i thought i was sarcastic! I have come to a point in this madness where i have pushed away anything having to do with dialysis. When i heard of Susie's passing i was brought back into the reality of it all. I cannot imagine what her husband and family are going through. All i can say is i am so sorry. Goodbye sweet Susie. You are and will always be my friend.

i am a 51 year old male on dialysis for 3 years now. This is my second time. My brother donated a kidney to me about 13 years ago. I found this site on another site. I had to laugh when i saw what it was called. I hope to meet people from all over to talk about dialysis.

Our dear sister Goofynina passed away today at 4:05.
She was surrounded by her loving family.

RIP Susie.  :grouphug;


I haven't been around a while (family and sickness) but my God to read this, I am so sorry and I wish I was able to be here when all this was happening.  Suzie always had a kind word for me and gave me encouragement, she made me laugh.  I will miss her.  Thank you Sluff for taking charge and keeping us informed and thanks to everyone else who helped also.  I lit a candle for her and left a little message.  I still am in a shock.

I just heard from Okarol. Very sad news. Goofynina represented the best in us all. I enjoyed her posts and wished I could have met her in person.

I am sorry I havn't logged very much since my transplant. But please remember all of you are my people, and are always in my thoughts.

RIP Goofynina, you will be missed by more people than you know.

OMG!!! I feel horrible for being away for so long! I don't even know what to say! I'm crying right now! She made this place such a joy. Her humor made me laugh--a rare occurrence any more. I miss Susie so much. This isn't fair! Don't doctors give antibiotics anymore??!! I'm so pissed too!

Paddbear, good to see you post.  Susie's problems were many.  It was such an incredible time and we are all so sad.    How are you doing? Please post and let us know how you are.

My heart stopped when I got a PM from Goofynina a few days ago.  It was from her sister but for just a moment, I thought------Susie!  With Beth woriking on the Kidney Walk so much, Susie is a daily part of our conversations, but it doesn't make it easier.   I miss her too :'( :'(
