According to Lou Ann's Facebook page, it looks like she is gone.  Susan (the Queen of Cheese) and I are friends with her on Facebook and people are offering their sympathy.  I have messaged her son to find out what happened and he confirmed she died yesterday morning.  He and I had been communicating and this is the last message I had received from him on March 19th.

"She's slowly going, but she having fun as she goes. She sleeps a lot, but has decided that she wants to get up really early. There are times when she is fully there, and there are times when she's not. Thank you for caring, it really does mean a lot."

I don't think she had been having more good days than bad for a long time. Cry Her daughter is working on a post on behalf of Lou Ann.

Love,

Eldri

That old song popped into my mind as I read this. Farewell, Lou Ann. You were our core and gave us so much. Godspeed on your final journey. I'd write more but I need to go cry now. B

Thank you, Lou Ann, for the many words of encouragement you left here on this board. Your words were a source of comfort when my world was spinning out of control. May your family find strength and peace during these difficult days.

And now I will miss her forever. Becca, Daylady, Chris, BC Brady...they were all special to me as I went through treatment. Peace Lou Ann, your fight is over and you fought a good fight and doing so mattered so much. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am so sorry to hear of Lou Ann's passing.  I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.  She fought UPSC gallantly and bravely and went through a lot.  I will miss hearing from her. 

Too many women have passed away from our cancer over the past several years and it is just so very sad and tragic.

Cheerful

Some ladies have such a presence on this board. Lou Ann was one of those. Farewell to a kind soul who gave her love and support to so many others, even during her most difficult times.

Those words say so much to each of us - Lou Ann is holding her own in how she wants to leave us and to me that says it best.  I have been talking to my children about how I want things to be and am listening to how they hope things will be. There is a time for all things and to live well and die well is a major part of our time on this planet. We have so many wonderful models on this site who have shown us the way... rest now sweet spirit.

I didn't want to open this thread. I just knew what it was going to tell us. We have truly lost one of the best. Rest in peace sweet Lou Ann. I have missed you on this board and will always cherish your courage, wisdom and support. Your fight will continue to help others going forward. I hope your family finds comfort that you were happy and loved them every day. 

Love and Hugs,

Cindi

If anyone exemplified the picture of a warrior on this board, she was that person. She fought this beast for a long time, and did so with humor and determination. Just looking at what she went through inspired so many of us to keep the up the fight, no matter how glum things appeared to be. RIP.

It's always so difficult when one of our warriors succumbs.  LouAnn was a supportive, informative and compassionate presence on this board, and she will be sorely missed.  I take some comfort in the fact that she often spoke of the love and support of her husband and children to ease her journey.  Respectful condolences to them.  I hope they read this thread and take solace that the feeling for LouAnn expressed here is genuine and profound.  Rest in peace, LouAnn.  Best wishes, Oldbeauty

It is so sad to hear of your passing. You battled cancer for a long time and always had a positive attitude. 
You never stopped living. I hope you are now at peace in heaven.

You were a warrior princess, giving me comfort, compassion, hope and wisdom when I needed it most.  You are a pioneer with your treatments, when our disease treatment is stuck in the 90's.  I hope that your treatment options will be studied and help in the future (much like my brother-in-law in his trials for bill duct liver cancer has opened up new treatment options).  How I wish you were still with us, but that is selfish of me, you fought so valiently and deserve no more pain or struggle and true happiness in the beyond. Hugs Nancy

That at some point Lou Ann's family sees this tribute to her.  She means so much to us and made a difference in our lives. Her act is a hard one to follow.

I haven't been on the boards in a month or so, and logged in to see this. I'm so sorry and sad for Lou Ann and her family. She fought the good fight and gave some great tips. I enjoyed reading that she ate treats when she wanted, well, just because. She was a kind, good soul. RIP.

Lou Ann was always so supportive of others despite having to deal with all of her own major health challenges.  She will be very much missed by those who had the privilege of crossing paths with her on this board.  Sending my deepest sympathy to her family and friends.

This is Lou Ann's obituary.  I don't think anybody on this board is anywhere near her but I don't know that for sure.  The service will be on April 21st in Montana. 

I sure hope there is a heaven and Lou Ann is having ALL good days and none, bad!!

Love,

Oh Eldri, that's great. Thank you for sharing! Lou Ann's profile picture wasn't very clear and I always wondered what she looked like IRL, so it was wonderful to see her smiling face and learn a little more about her life. What a wonderful human being, and what a loss. B
