    when you're too sad to say anything at all??  Having been a member of this BB since 2000, I've seen lots of members lost . . . but Amy B is just too sad. 

    May the Angels carry her off to her Glory (be that here or there) and the Gods carry her family and give them the strength they need to carry on.

     

    XO,

    Michele  :-)

      I think you say 'I love you and I'm proud to know you.'

      (I got that from my grandmama.)

      Take good care, k.

        Good news vs bad news.  The good news is that she is still with us. The bad news is you didn't have to be so snotty. Especially considering who we all care about.  The clarification is very helpful. The attitude demeans you. No wonder you have to hide as an anon.

      Here's what I say:

      Dear sweet Amy, I hate this damned disease more than I can put into words.

      I love you, and I'm so happy we got to meet in real-life on a few occasions.  Even though melanoma brought us together, my life is so much richer and I am soooo blessed to know you.

      I admire you for so many things:  for the relentless research you've done; for putting your story out there and helping others become their own best advocates; for giving hope when it seems there is none; for sharing your detailed experiences (good and bad) with the trials, biochem, bioimmunity meds, etc., and your responses to them (again good and bad); for your aggression and persistence in fighting red tape (insurance, dealings with incompetent people who don't know how to to their jobs);  for listening to me vent about non-melanoma related things and giving great advice. I love your organization ("getting your ducks in a row"); I love that you have taught us fellow warriors to be firm, ask questions until we get answers, say "yes" and/or "no" when necessary, for telling docs the way YOU are going to do things and not the other way around, but mostly, I love you just for being you.   And of course, I love you for admitting to your passion for barbies, too! =)

      I adore you and Dennis and your sweet family. I love that you can look melanoma and death in the eye and say "SCREW YOU—I'm winning this battle one way or another."  I love that when God calls you home, you are ready, with your hands held high (no pun intended, short stuff! lol!), and saying "Here I am, Lord!!"

      Thanks for being my friend, Amy.  I love you, always and forever.
