Remember President Bush's Point of Light initiative? That is what Stephanie has been for many of us on these boards. Let's shine the light for her by way of greetings and love from around the world.

    Stephanie, I feel like I know you very well yet you would never ever know it. I have only silently observed, grown, changed, and been inspired and, honestly transformed by your courage, love, your wisdom, your ability to exist in the world, to suffer, to know, and to be and to share to openly. I feel as though I have been sitting quietly at your feet learning so much about life and death. For many weeks I have worried about how the world would be without you in it: How much your light would be missed. But I was coming to a sense that some connections, some lights simply do not leave us. Ever.

    At the same time I feel like the Master Class on Living you have been teaching these few weeks as ended far too abruptly. Your light and your wisdom are deep within me and I am so grateful for them. I also miss you very much and am keeping you close in my thoughts.

    Much love,


    P.S. This goes for you too, Rosevalley

    Professor50's words describe my feelings exactly and I couldn't say it better. '..a Master Class..' is definitely what you, Stephanie, have provided along with Rosevalley and others,

    I am keeping a light shining in my heart for you here in Canada, Stephanie.

    Much love.

    I am so appreciative that this thread was started for Stephanie. I am newly diagnosed stage 4. I am fairly low on that bell curve but I visit the d&d thread daily. I have gained so much inspiration from Stephanie and others. I can only hope they rub off on me a bit. Stephanie has given so much to the community so I was very pleased that this thread was started. It is time for us to give back to her. She posted weeks ago about the number of hits d&d was receiving compared to the number of posters. We know now that there are many visiting to read her posts which signified that large number of hits. I hope she sees this thread. Thank you so much for posting

    Light and lovingkindness to you, dear Stephanie. You were one of the very first people to welcome me to BCO, and your posts have inspired me and taught me so much about love and forgiveness.

    Wishing you pain-free days and restful nights, and much, much love.

    May our thought envelop Stephanie with love and light from all those who love her. I should have posted sooner and feel very selfish. Hopefully Stephanie you will somehow now realize how much your wisdom and kindness helped so many of your suffering sisters. You are in my prayers daily and have a forever place in my heart

    Dear Stephanie - sending love and light from Quebec. You touched my heart in so many ways with your wisdom and kindness. BIG hugs as well. I hope to have the pleasure of reading you again.

    good morning everyone. Artista, you are correct. Stephanie is back. I am stage 4 but primarily a reader as opposed to poster. I am starting to feel that is a little selfish of me. Taking but not giving back. I also understand the intent of the stage 4 threads being a sanctuary for stage 4 members. Although you are all gaining so much from Stephanie's posts. I think this is a beautiful thread for y'all to communicate what her posts have meant to you. I am thinking it meant a lot to her and helped bring her back. Wish I could write a post as beautiful as professor! Thanks so much for your support. Mary Anne

    This is such a lovely endeavor, ladies. On behalf of your Stage IV sisters, I just want to say thank you for this patch of beauty. Stephanie wrote to me earlier this week that she is blown away by the surprise of being so lifted up this late in her long, slow fall. Your love and light is healing deep things in her spirit. Bless you all for your lovingkindness.

    I found this thanks to being tipped off! Good place since everyone stage 4 and all can appreciate. Can't think of anyone better to spread joy and lovingkindess too than Stephanie! So you reap what you have sown. It's true those seeds of inspiration, observation and kindness grew a bumper crop. Enjoy the caring. I am happy to see you appreciated outright and to have you back among us. Yay! Love and light shines.
