    Keep hanging in there. Your letter was great. All of this posting, memorializing is really healing and helps with the "grief work". Thanks to the ICN for allowing it to happen! I think Deb's passing took a little piece of all of us. It sure makes you appreciate life and each day God gives us.

    Thanks so much Cindy, Leslie and Mum...I am still crying!!! I feel like I've lost a part of myself...I learned so much from Deb...I was so bitter when I got dx'd with IC at this age, and she was right there, helping me to let go of the pain...I only wish to do what she did, and keep her memory alive...

    Hugs and love to you,
    Jess

    Jess, that letter was so beautifully written, it touched me and brought tears to my eyes. I am sure, that your adopted aunt would be so proud of you, and the way you are handling your life. She is still a big part of you, as you help others out, with your help, support, and loving kindness to all of us. There is no way we can, or would, want to replace Debbie in your heart, and soul, but hope that you know we are all here, to give you all our love and support whenever it is needed. Luv ya lots mum Iris. kissing grouphug

    Jess,

    We could all learn from Deb if we would just take the time to be as caring and understanding as she always was. Keep your chin up we are all here for you also right now.

    My Special Angel

    Last night in ICN chat, we decided to write letters for Deb...mine is far from what I really want to say, but I can't get the words out. There are so many things that could be said about Deb, and it's hard to sum up such a wonderful life in such a little space...

    My Special Angel

    Words cannot express the kind of person that Deb was. To me, she was the epitome of selflessness. The one person I could count on to tell all my dark secrets to and still manage to be smiled upon and loved. She and I could talk continuously, discussing anything from IC to ice cream! She loved life with a passion, and complimented often and freely. She had the soul of a dreamer and the heart of a child. No problem was too big for her. And if she didn’t have the answer, she’d send hugs. To anyone! A friend to all. When I first came to the ICN, I knew nobody. I was scared and felt alone. I logged on just days after I was diagnosed. My first friend was Deb. She extended a hand to me and lead me through the spiraling ways of IC. I grew to love her like my own aunt, and she delighted in having a following that thought of her as such.

    Often times she would mention her family. She loved them dearly, and the only comfort I have through all of this is the fact that Deb is with her mother now, just as she wanted to be. I have sat here for many hours crying and pondering the question “why”, and cannot seem to come up with an answer to satisfy my sorrow. Why Deb? Why did she have to be taken from us? Why such a good, decent, honest person? Why, why, why, why???? I shake my head and cannot understand, but have no choice to accept the outcome. Deb is gone, but not forgotten. She has left her mark on my soul, as she has left on many.

    Deb has taught me to respect, and love. To let go; to pray for peace of mind; to give back twice as much as received; to be a friend to all; that even when you have nothing to say, offer a hug; and most importantly, make every day count. It will take me a long while to get over this, Deb was more than a legend and icon around the ICN…she was a great friend to me, and I am indebted to her for eternity for teaching me the true meaning of kindness and friendship.

    I truly believe that everyone on Earth was sent with a purpose. Some are sent to heal, some to teach, some to discover, but Deb was special. She was sent to love. To forgive. To bring peace, inner strength and beauty. She was a healer and a teacher in her own right, she healed my heart through many aches and pains, and she taught me to let go of the pain and the hurt. I feel very humbled and honored to have known Deb, although I only knew her for less than a year, she will be with me always.
