Though you did not know her
she was an inspiration to all my writings

She was a gracious lady and
left this world with the same dignity
in which she lived.

She endured pain and sadness
while struggling for her life
in these last eight months.

I was witness to her leaving
and while my heart is crying from
the pain it feels, I know she is in peace.

I want to thank all of you for having
been there these past months and though I have
said thank you before, now you understand why.

We had a relationship that was rare. She was
28 years older than I. My mentor and friend. She believed in me more than I believed in myself and now she is gone. I am charged with keeping her memory alive for I was the closest living being to her. She died while I was at her bedside on July 2, 2005. A day I will always remember.

Her name was Hadia M. Hamdy daughter of Naila, a name to be remembered even in digital space.

In loving memory,

Electra aka/SimplyGold

I'm so sorry for your loss.  May the very thing that made you love her, live on in you.  It's extremely difficult to lose one you're so close to.  

God bless you.

Isn't it simply amazing, that we can set a name into virtual memory...and who knows how many will come to understand that all lives are precious to someone...

thank you, m'dear...for taking time to share your special someone with us.

God blessed her life...
Now, He will bless her eternity.

To each of you a heartfelt hug. You have no idea how comforting it is to see your response in this hour of grief.

Electra, it must have been a comfort for Hadia to have had you at her bedside at the time of her passing into the Light.

~ There was a bright new star added to the skies that night...

You can be certain that you now have her watching over you from above. In some ways, she will be closer to you now than she ever was in physical form. God bless her ~ and you.

Love & Everlasting Light,
Linda

SG, I am writing a story and would like to know if I may use 'Hadia' as the name for one of my characters?

Thank you all for your kind, loving support.
Today, was her funeral and now I must work through the aftermath. There were many who came, for there were many she touched. In life she has brought us together, in death she will seal the bond.

Poet DeVine, both she and I would be honored.

Sincerely,

SimplyGold/AKA Electra
