Hello to everyone. I've been on a holiday for 7 days and returned to the news of one of our "semi-colons" death. It has saddened me to the depth of my soul.

I have spent the past hour going back and reading all of Fitlisa's posts from the beginning. Then I cry and pray that we will someday find a cure for this horrible disease.

I look forward to being in Las Vegas for our reunion and hugging every one of you. If any of you have thought about coming to Las Vegas, now is the time to make the decision.

I would like to suggest we also have a memorial service (of sorts) for Fitlisa and KrisS who have left us much too soon.

Many blessings to you all.

    Hi Kerry,
    There is much sadness in hearing about someone who was not able to beat this disease. Lisa was such a fine and positive person; I miss her and Kris. Sorry I won't be able to join you guys in Vegas, but I will be there in spirit and hoping to feel the hugs. Judy

    It is sad when someone passes, as we become so close on the board. We must remember Sue's Bob too, who passed just before Christmas. It makes us grateful for all those who are beating this disease but reminds us of the fragility of life.

    Hi Kerry,

    I'm glad you are back. This disease causes so much heartache and pain. I, too, reread Lisa's posts and cried.

    Talk to you soon.

    What is this Las Vegas Reunion? I'm interested. I've never been to Vegas. I would love to meet other semi-colons. I'm sorry to tag this onto a sad discussion. I think that is is wonderful how people can become so close via this website. I want to be a part of it.
