    Thanks for posting this on Facebook, Mac, or I would have never known. She was the one constant to beat me to greeting noobs when I was more active. She'll leave a void here for sure. Guess she has somewhere else to be to offer popcorn to the incoming.

    CW---as one of the first people to have welcomed me here, I have to thank your family for giving us all an opportunity to say good-bye.

    Larissa---having gone through what you are now going through---cherish every second you have together and know your mom is much loved in this AW family! Just look at these responses!!

    We shall miss you CactusWendy!! How do you like your popcorn?

    Oh Mac and Larissa, thank you for letting us know. Wendy was always a bright spot of sunshine for us when we were newbies.

    God speed, honey. Find a nice puffy cloud and send the rest of us rainbows from time to time. We'll miss you.

    Oh, Wendy, I will miss you. You welcomed me aboard, and when you found out I was another beader, we had some great discussions. The next pieces I make, I'll make with you in mind, and in honor of your wry love and endless creativity.

    Go with ease, friend.

    I didn't know you very well, CW, but I distinctly remember your kindness, and your unfailing encouragement, both in crits and when welcoming newbies. You will be sorely missed.

    Wendy, I wish you peace and and a gentle passing. Know that even though your absence here on Earth will be deeply felt, the stars above will shine a little brighter when you join them and light our way through the darkness of our sorrow.

    You are blessed to have so many people with you in spirit as you make the journey. Your kindness and wit made us all smile.

    Farewell and blessed be, friend.

    I'm so sorry to hear this - CactusWendy was the first person to welcome me, and I still love to see all the newbie responses to the popcorn question. It was and is such a personal way to welcome people into such a big forum.

    CactusWendy, you've been very friendly to me, and helpful, too. It makes me sad to know you're dying. Goodbye, and may life in Heaven be more wonderful than you ever imagined.

    Thank you very much.

    I'm glad this was posted on FB but sad to read it's CW. Please, Lord God, if there is any way you could touch her body and heal it. Not our will be done but your will be done on earth as is it in Heaven.

    I don't want to say goodbye. This sucks hearing someone from AW is dying.

    I hope your last moments are the greatest, shared with friends and family. It won't be the same without you, in so many ways.

    Cactuswendy was one of the first to welcome me to AW, with warmth and a sense of humour that made me feel like I'd come home.

    Godspeed, dear lady. You will be sorely missed

    Oh my goodness, this is so sad.

    I have tears in my eyes as I'm typing this and I don't know what to say. I didn't know she was sick.

    Thank you, CactusWendy for being so kind to everyone here on AW.

    Wow. I never really got to know her. My loss I guess. It sounds like she's a wonderful person. I hope she defies the odds and sticks around a few years longer.
