I didn't have the pleasure of knowing her. However, it's still sad because she was a member of our community.

Very sorry to hear she's suffering and that she's in hospice. My thoughts are with you at this very difficult time.

Positive thoughts for Cactus Wendy and hugs to Larissa and her family. So sorry to read this -- I didn't have a chance to interact with Cactus Wendy but had the pleasure of reading her posts in older threads.

I've been sitting here for the last twenty minutes, trying to come up with something.

I got nowt. Thanks for the advice and support (especially with a particular story of mine), Wendy.

Goodnight.

You welcomed us all, love, and you were always so wry and thoughtful. I learned to look for your red cactus flower avatar (and briefly, those red steampunk gears).

My thoughts with you and your family.

Oh, no. I'm heartbroken. It's inconceivable to me that she'll never be here again.

God bless you, Wendy. I can't wait to meet you again in heaven.

I'm sure Cactus Wednesday is headed for some place good .. sooner than we want her to.

For the rest of you so close to her .. Ain't it wonderful to have spent so much time with someone like her. You have golden memories. My condolances as new ones stop coming.

Cactus, if you can read this, thanks for sharing a little of yourself with us and may the rest of your eternity be as good as what you have earned.

A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says, "She is gone."

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her.Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she is gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout, "There she comes!"

That is what dying is.

An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

Lift us up O Lord, that we may see further.

I'm just going to say 'This x 2' because I'm having a bit of trouble seeing the keyboard at the moment. My eyes are all blurry.

Wendy, goodbye, and if you have to go, I hope it's without pain and with all the dignity you had in life.
