through me?

I will say it the way it is always said, directly and matter o' fact, I quote:

"Hi Karen,
I have bad news about Mom. They found cancer in her liver. She doesn't have long to live. Tell the people who are her friends. If anyone lives close, she is in Florida Hospital Deland room 239. Thanks, Tracie her daughter"

I'm so sorry to be the messenger.

I don't know what more to say either, just that I love you Marge.

I...love...you.


You have taught me well.

Oh, this brings sadness. Yet, dearest Marge, remember your wings of love, they will allow you to free yourself from the grip of melancholy.
I love you with tenderness and admiration.
Keeping you close in my heartprayers.

Marge, when your time does truly come, know with peace of mind, that you are leaving this world a better place than the one that you were born into. Your poetry, your photography, and your glorious spirit will live on.

You are loved. You are a TRUE Earth Angel who is returning HOME.

Holding you gently, warmly, lovingly in my arms.

Love and Eternal Light,
Linda
Your Earthy One

This is truly sad news.

Marge, may everything you believe not only be true but also give to you as you have given to others.  

and may the journey be pain free for you and those that will miss you.

Dear, dear Marge

I am so sorry to hear the news.  I commend everyone before my response for not trying to give you false hope.  However, please forgive me, for not accepting the news from qualified and experienced doctors and medical staff.  I am still praying to our best friend, God, for a miracle, and I don't believe your time has come yet.  If I am wrong, and it is, in fact, your time, please know that Flicka, my beloved horse, will meet you at the gate.  You will know each other instantaneously and there will be an immediate and wonderful bond of love and friendship between you that will last for all eternity.  (Please give him my love, although I know he knows he has it, but he will enjoy hearing it again.)  He will make you welcome and pass on messages to you from us on Earth.  If I am wrong, may your passage be light and beautiful for you, as you walk towards the light in acceptance, fearlessness and joy.  You will be going to a place of Peace and Harmony, and you will see God face to face whereas we, on Earth will still be seeing, as through a glass, darkly.  May God bring your family the peace of understanding, knowing that your suffering is over and may they feel their bond with you even more strongly than before.  

The tears are only trickling down my face.  They are not gushing and I am not sobbing, because I don't believe your time has come yet.  The tears are only for your current pain and suffering.  If your time does come soon, my tears will gush and I will sob my heart dry, but that will be for my own selfishness of missing you, and for your family and friends including all of your Pip friends.  

You have lived a life to be proud of.  You have brought such happiness and love to all around you and to all of us here on Pip.  I am very, very honoured to be your friend.  You will never ever be forgotten by anyone whose life you have touched.

Huglets dearest Marge
(and thank you dearest Karen and Tracie)

Dear Marge:

You will always be remembered and your work will live on!

The tears will not stop, and I'm always amazed that I have so much of the stuff.

I think I need to turn this off for tonight, but I wanted to leave Marge a hug.



I also want everyone to know that I think you are all pretty amazing...something special happens in this place.

Oh no, I can't believe this is really happening to my most precious friend. So far away I am and so in need to hug you now my sweet, sweet Marge. It just isn't fair.
My thoughts are with you dear girl and with all your family members, this is going to be a tough time for all. Just know that I love you and that I cherish the memories from the time we met and will carry them in my heart for ever and when your time comes Marge, your spirit will be kept alive through your beautiful poetry in the hearts of many. I'm not supposed to curse, but I did it anyway.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Marge,

My thoughts are with you as they have been for months.  I am not sure that I have told you the impact that you have made on me as a person and poet.

When I came to PiP, I was touched by the beauty of your poetry.  I loved the poems about your grand daughters - and I found so much beauty in your flower creations.  You have a green thumb for sure.

I moved from PiP to your other sites and poured over your poems.  They are beautiful and inspirational.  I thank you for sharing all that you have with us.

I remember when you first emailed me - it was about the Poetry Workshop. You have my limitless gratitude for getting the Workshop going again and for recognizing my desire to learn.  I have learned from you.

Please know how much I think of you and how deeply I care for you.

May this prayer helps in some small way.

Love,
Alison

Marge,
What can I say to you?
My heart aches in your battle. You have been there for many of us and you are the Queen of Poetry, the “poet’s poet”. Thank you so much for letting me to be a small part of your world as you took everyone in. My life has been blessed in knowing you and your work. I am praying for you and for your family.
Much love,
helen

Awwwww, I am so sorry. I love you sweet Marge. You are one of those angels in disguise. You have always been such an inspiration to me (in more ways than one). You will always be right here in my heart. I wish I did live closer. I would love to see you, Marge. And, give you a warm gentle hug.

I just finished reading the other link hoping to see some good news concerning your health, Marge.  Then I saw this one.  WOW!
You've had so much to deal with these last months, Marge.  Do you suppose it's God's way of saying you need to rest?  
We're thankful you've so generously shared your talents with us.  You've shown a loving, upbeat attitude even when your world seemed to be falling apart.  Thank you so much, Marge.

Love and God bless,
  Rae
(Thanks to Tracy and Karen for informing us)
May those 2 little gals remember the great love Grandma Marge had for them always.
