I'm sorry to have to say that I'll be removing one of my favorite journals from the side bar before long. Pam (Hiz1desire), the bravest woman in J-Land, has passed on.
Pam fought so valiantly to keep her spirits up. She last posted to her journal April 7. I won't remove the link from the side bar as long as her journal is there, because it's a testimony to a fighter.
Some of her readers will someday have to walk the same lonesome valley as Pam, and we'll remember how well she fought the fight. And we'll fight too.
And perhaps we'll win because she taught us how to fight to the end.
Here's the message I received in e-mail from Pam's sister:
My sister Pam passed away today.
I don't have other information, as to exactly when, or anything else,
her ex husband called my sister Susie about an hour ago to let her know.
She is at peace now, she's not in pain, she doesn't hurt. We who loved
her are the ones who are suffering now, and i know that my life is
better for having had her in it, so the pain even can be appreciated,
That I hurt because she was my sister, and I got to love her, and be
loved by her.
She told me a couple years ago, that all she wanted out of life, was
to touch one person, and make a difference in someone's life. Then she
would know that she was a success. The last time that she and I had a
long conversation was about 2 weeks ago. And she KNEW that she was a
success. That she has touched so many people, made a difference in so
many people's lives. She knew the end was very near, and she was
scared, but she knew that she had accomplished what she had set out
for herself as her life's goal. How many of us can say that?
Hug your sisters, your friends, your loved ones. Tell them what they
mean to you, and how they've touched your life. Let them know while
you can. Life is so short.
Thank you all for your words, and prayers. Knowing that there are
people all around the world who are grieving for her as we are is a
great comfort to us.
Thank you all
Nancy, Betty & Keith
