In passing..

It's with a great measure of sadness that I note this day,the most untimely passing of a dear friend,and member of my extended family here in O-Town.

Yesterday,after a lengthy struggle with the myriad of ailments that often accompany diabetics,Christine Scott lost the good fight,and let loose the ties that bind to friends and family.

That she was lovely on the outside will be readily observed,but it was the beauty of her nature that truly endeared her to everyone that knew her.
She freely gave the best of herself,bringing out the best in others.
..She only ever saw the best in me.

I'll need some time to reconcile with The Lord,the patent unfairness of one such having been deprived of all the tomorrows that should have belonged to them by virtue.

Sleep tight Christine..

Holding you close in my heart dear friend and on my way into the office tomorrow I'll drop in and light a candle. A small flicker of light for remembrance.

I'm so sorry to hear it. I lost a dear friend to diabetes about a week ago. What a cruel disease it is.

Oh, I'm so sorry. Fair's got nothing to do with it - the rain falls on the just and the unjust alike, and biolgical processes do not discriminate. It's bitterly hard to lose someone you think so highly of.

I'm sending out BUCKETloads of love to you and yours. When your big family's hearts begin to heal, I hope you'll share memories. Tomorrows are lovely, but all the todays - those are a treasure, too.

Mom-O,LK,and I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and condolences.
We've known for some time that Christine wouldn't be with us for much longer,and had some time to prepare for this day.
She will be missed.

So sorry for your loss, Sling. (Everyone else has said that but really, what else is there to say?) Please give MOLK a particularly big squeeze for me and then make her give you a moderate sized one. Then you can both rub LK on the head. Thanks.

Oh Sling, I'm really sorry. I wish words could do anything at all times like these. Good thoughts ...

Wow, so sorry, Sling!!

When you said "I'll need some time to reconcile with The Lord,the patent unfairness of one such having been deprived of all the tomorrows that should have belonged to them by virtue"...I know what you mean. My Dad's heart attack this week--even though he is recovering--made me pause and get a little ticked--if not with God, then with this whole system of death that we have going on in our world.

This morning, I asked Iwanski, "What is the point of life, if people we love die? Why should we even live then?" And he said, "Because it's awesome." :) That made me smile. Although it's hard to face the death of loved ones, I know he's right--life is still awesome. :)

Rest in peace, Christine...
