Laz has requeted the list of our friends who have lost their lives this past year, so that we can remember them at this special time of the year. 

It breaks my heart as I read through the list of friends who I have grown to love. 

I will join Laz in being grateful for the time we were able to share with them, and for their strength and the strength of their caregivers who have been the ones to post here. 

I am posting this at 4 pm Pacific time, because in England (home of my birth) it will be November 27th.

You're missing Barb Opperman who I think had the sign on BarbeBarb.  She died on July 2.  I made a post about it back then.  I was given permission to post it.  I hadn't realized we lost Pepe.  I think I said that once before.  I have serious short term issues these days.  I am very thankful to be alive this holiday season and greatful to all of you all year.  I hope everyone has a beautiful Thanksgiving.  Prayers to the family of everyone on this list.

I try my best to keep up, but I know I've probably missed a couple. 

Oh my! It would have been Barb's Birthday toady. She was only a month older than me.

Yeah, I sent her family a little note.  She was so young.  Between her and Leena, it was a bad year.

This list is just way to long.  It's sad to see this many names and thinking back on the stories that they shared with us.  They all shared their journey with us.  May they all have a very Blessed Thanksgiving dinner (if they eat in Heaven) at God's Banquet Table.

Yes, Kim, I agree with you that the list is too long. It's really sad to read the list and my heart gets heavy.

It has been 7 months since Pat passed.  We would have celebrated our 32nd anniversary this month.  Wishing he was here for the holidays, he loved Christmas so much.  While he is greatly missed by me, our 2 children, his mother, and many brothers & sisters (he was 1 of 14 children) and too many nieces and nephews to count, we can always rely on each other to tell funny stories and reminisce of happier times. It has helped us to heal and cheers us when we are down.  

Bless you all during this holiday season.  Wishing you strength and love,

Ellen

Thank you for joining us again. It sounds as though you are surrounded by love, which has to be a big help. 32 years together is wonderful, but oh how it must leave a hole in your life.

We're still here for you whenever you come to visit.

Thank you Sue...They will be remembered...Continuing to wish those departed and their families still with us great peace and healthy healing.

P.S  Didn't realize we lost Pepe for some reason.  I feel as if there is more forgotten these days.

I think there are quite a few who we never hear about as they pass and their loved ones really don't know how or at their time of grief, do not want to get on to the forum. It is sad.

I'm not familiar with either name.  Either way, we will remember these two people, as it really doesn't matter when they passed, the fact is, the were part of this forum, and therefore worthy of rememberance. 

I found LizzyDavis, and sadly she passed away on August 25th, 2012.

These people are so memorable but I'm afraid that the more we post about them the more that CSN will find out who they are and then take down their profile and wipe them clean from our board so I'm not wanting the ones that I've known that have passed to be acknowledged because I'll still go back and look at what they have been through.  Please reconsider posting deaths because CSN has a new approach to wiping everyone away with their profile the minute you list it.  I'm wanting to sometimes see their faces again and see what their treatment was.  Just a thought.  But I don't want to be taken from this board as to where one point was to another point in my story.  I'm a story - please let me keep me story.  I'll leave something behind here if I'm no longer posting and no one knows I've died but if they find out, I'm gone - that's sad.

Wiping the bios is worse than vandals in the cemetery.   I do agree with Kim about missing old friends, and the prospect of being "disappeared".  I dislike the prospect us of going dark about our stories near the end just to avoid bio erasure.

I am kind of thinking that we need a reasonably stable offsite board to post our bios to, and then archive them permanently elsewhere (ahem).

Not posting deaths is a serious reduction in benefit to all, and will ultimately drive many elsewhere, off CSN.  Biographies are an important way we can see beyond the limitations of local and current (outdated) practices, and to be aware of misunderstood or unspoken problems as well as being with our friends.

1.   That we have some kind of understanding and arrangement with CSN admins to grant permission and request (demand) that our profile pages be retained.   I note Helen's efforts with BarbeBarb (11/26, above) seem to acceptable, both for the Profile page and the identifying information have survived over 5 weeks now.    

Perhaps, a.  as a permission & signature on the profile page itself, or b. a forum broadcast list "We the undersigned..."

2.   Start post posting similar profile pages here or on independent media that will have their own expiration/deletion characteristics, with references in our own posts.

Being left in the dark about those who have passed is worse for me than seeing their profile page diasappear. I have noticed that their posts and avatars are still repsent, and if we go back and read some old post, we can still feel their spirit and learn from their words. 

I do think their profiles should remain, but also see how the site needs to protect them from being hijacked. 

Its a hard call, but we do need to konw when our friends have move on from this world.

Thank you for remembering my sweet husband Christopher and all the others. I have lost so many over the years on this site. So sad but I am so thankful for all the support we all have received through this site

Love to all dealing with this horrible disease,

It's sad to see so many names. I agree, unless the family requests that the person's information be deleted, I think their information should be left open for all of us to look back on. I'm not sure how to get around that. Maybe we can open a Facebook page and post our stories on there, but who knows, I think things could disappear on there sometimes, too. 

I want to ask my brother if I can post his pic. Although I originally opened this in his name to find out info for him, it has ended up being my account. Everyone here has been so supportive and helpful to us in this horrible journey. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Each time I see this list posted I think the same thing.....it is way too long.  I remember texting with these people and how encouraging they all were.   This disease is horrible.

I pray they rest in peace because they are now free.  I pray for their families, especially at the Holiday time.

It is impossible to find the right words.

In addition to the sadness of the loss, I remember so many of these friends with fond memories filled with laughter, strength, courage, and compassion for each of us here. I know the holiday season is especially tough for us who remain. I am still not used to the idea of no gift shopping for Ron and now my JBG, but I will get through it.

Luv,

Wolfen

He passed away on my birthday, December 22nd, last year. What a wonderful man he was, who shared so much with us while he was here. 

He is so worthy of rememberance. Thanks Phil.

Hi all,

 

I just wanted to add my dear mum Karen to this list,

She didnt post herself on here but I did and the support I recieved was so touching, I would often flick in and out of the board as I needed some advice/guidance when things changed and it was incredibly helpful.

Gosh I miss her at this time of year.....in fact, I miss her all the time!

It seems fitting i post this today as I am off to voluneer some time at a local store that hosts our hospice rememberance tree.

Love you mum xxxx

Hi all,

I did not post much on the site but I came very often to get advice for my mom.  My mom passed away November 21/2014 from this awful disease after an almost 2 year battle.  Her name is Mary Lou and she was only 58 years old.

Thank you all for your constant posts, you help more people than you know!

Love, 

Michelle

I am sorry your mum passed from this awful disease. I hope that you are doing well, and that you are at peace in the knowledge that she is at peace. 

Thank you for letting us know. I will add her to our sad, and ever growing list.
