I read on fb that it was Hope Smith's Birthday today and wanted to wish her a happy birthday, when I realized that she had not posted anything for years, but her son Damian Smith had informed friends of her passing in 2011.
May dear Hope rest in peace. I always enjoyed her poetry. Of course I missed her too, but then there are many members who at some point decide to take a break, so I did not imagine she had gone Home.
Dear Hope deserves to be remembered by us in our special "Passions in Peace".
