I found the obituary for Carla O'Neil on-line at the Columbus Dispatch Web site. Here it is. Anyone with the iVillage directory should be able to find an address for Carla. I don't know if she is on the list Jo-Ann put together for Healingwell. Those who need her address can send me an email. So sad, Lauri

Oh no, I am so sad. Carla was struggling so badly these last few months, and I know she had just started a new chemo recently. Her decline was so fast...I know she was sick for a while, but I think she was working until very recently and also cleaning the darn house. I was so upset at the expectations that seemed to be placed on her....I cannot believe she is gone! Thank goodness her suffering is over.

Prayers and peace for her family and loved ones.

Lauri, thank you for finding that and sharing it with us. I am so sad right now I can hardly think or type. I knew she was having a tough time but never thought it would be so quick. Prayers to her family and all of us as we deal with another sister lost to this disease.

Oh what a shock! I just mailed a card to her yesterday, I had no idea. And to think she was still trying to work and take care of kids and a house. I can't believe this. Thank you Lauri for letting us know. How in the world did you find out? I am truly shocked beyond words, and so very, very sad that we have lost another sister. Hugs, MK

Even though I didn't know her, I am saddened by this also.  She is only 1 year older than me!  I don't know the details of her struggle, but it is always a shock to lose someone so young to a disease that supposedly has a greater chance of survival now.  My heart goes out to her family.
Love & hugs,

What a shock. How sad. She was a fighter. Always wanted to make sure everyone was taken care of. She needed to take better care of herself, but having that maternal/womans mindset she felt she needed to take care of everyone else and that her house was clean. That makes me sad. I was SO happy when she decided to go on disability. I thought, finally, Carla will get some rest. I hate to see this. I had no idea. Like the rest of you I thought she was beginning a new chemo.
L&H to her family and friends as well to all of us.

Thanks for letting us know Laurie...I am shocked and saddened by this news....sigh ...

My prayers for her family..especially her young sons..2 more young children losing
their Mother to this horrible disease....


Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

I don't even have the words anymore.  This just saddens me so much.  She was only 45.  My heart goes out to her family and I pray that Carla's husband's finds the strength he is going to need.
