    I know I wrote to tell you "bye"
    and thank you for being here....
    that night, the night I'll never forget
    your hand reached out midst my fear.

    No hope I had, alone I was
    searching, reaching an end;
    then this site I found and you were here
    as you wrote I slowly dried the tears.

    Your gentleness and love reached within
    and I knew you meant to help
    this stranger who knocked upon this door
    in pain, fear and tears I came
    and I met a sister, Jackie.

    Three years ago on that fall night
    there was Jazzie and Patty too;
    Rita and Steven, bless you all
    for weeks you taught me to fight.

    Sue fed me with food, from New York City!
    What a joy "we" hillbillies had....
    The good has far outweighed the bad.
    We agreed early on to disagree...and

    Jackie I love you dear. You taught me
    a new light to see.
    Not just my body, illness and all
    but you taught me much about me.

    I just read all these differnt posts about Jackie leaving.... I sure hope she's stays, in whatever capacity she so chooses. She is way too valuable to this board and all of us, to leave would be a devistation to many. I pray that things will work out.

    What a beautiful poem. That's a gift I'm sure she will cherish.... I know I would.

    Regards
    Dorothy

    I think this moderator crap has lead to nothing but fighting and BS. For two year I have participated with no moderator but the administration and the web master. Folks were theirself and it was okay. We learned and learned to listen to others methods, needs ect cetera. When a nutcase would cruise through they were banned without most of us knowing they had been blocked; we just thought they never came back as they were obviously kooks or competition of our sponsor.

    Many are uptight to speak openly and I am one of them! I don't want to be banned or criticized so harshly I quit. We need to lay this contention down and come to our senses.

    Sorry, as usual I got off on a tangent; but because I care. Love CactusLil'
