Lee, Buddy, & Murphy,
You were there when I came here. Like so many here, you helped me get through a very difficult time. God has blessed us with you friendship. I will not forget it ever. I am no bluebird. But I learned a great deal from you and will do my best to follow your lead. You are my friend. Forever. When in the darkest hour, you need my help, I will be here...And don't be afraid to drop in. Tell us what you see. How you feel. What's on your mind. Just say hello. Good luck in your travels. We shall meet. There is a place. You have been prequalified.
To our members,
Our Forum continues. This great forum is built by it's members. We gain members daily, and we lose some. But we thrive together. Lee has been our moderator for a year. Giving countless hours of Love and friendship. Our job as moderators has a specific distinction that tells a real story. We are volunteers helping cancer patients. Either through the experience ourselves or through our loved ones, we grew here and wanted to give back. I guess for now, Barry and I get the reigns. But this horse knows where it is going already. Two members have been approached to help. But we will consider any that wants to help. But I warn you. This is not as easy at it looks. What Lee did for us was above the call of duty. I can only use her threads to see "What would mama bluebird do?". This great forum will miss mama bluebird.
I wrote this back to Lee this morning,
When my life was scared, when my heart was withered ~ you were there.
When I thought I would not be here today ~ you were there.
When our friends needed a strong leader ~ you were there.
When the right gentleness was required ~ you were there.
No, you could not solve our problems. God will do that. He is always there.
But be it known. You will be missed. You will always be Loved. You have touched so many. You will always have this legacy at HealingWell.
And in my heart. Your next post will be number 2,500. And you are very welcome.
With very sincere friendship and Love,
Tony, Ruthie, and "critters"
