Oh amirah, I'm so sorry I had no idea.

I hope you don't mind if I light a candle for your little baby boy.



Thinking of you all. Lots of love,
Dusty xxxxxxxx

I just found out our local ostomy support chapter lost one of its own today.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Jack family. Betty was a great addition to our ostomy family. She had a great sense of humor, a warm smile, and never let her ileostomy get in the way of doing what she wanted in life.

There's one empty chair at our meeting, one less voice laughing, one less member. You may be gone but your spirit lives on. God Speed Betty.

This feature is dedicated to the memory of Beverly Haynes, who was a very special lady we were blessed to have as a member here for some time, before she sadly lost her battle with cancer, in November 2010.

In here you can light a candle, and post a message if you so wish, for anyone who you are worried about, who you feel you'd like to do something positive for, or someone who is no longer with you - not necessarily a member of the forum, but anyone in your life.



The first candle to be lit has to be for Bev -


we will never forget you, Bev. x





In memory of Beverly Haynes, i never knew you but you're someone special.

Every single person who has Crohn"s. Wish you all peace and health and strength to carry on. Hold your heads up high... you can do it!


Daddy, thankyou for fighting cancer.
Uncle Lance & Uncle Pete, Keep courage and keep fighting cancer.
Oom Thys & Tant Rita, u both are increadible keep faith. (Cancer)
My Brother Mike, you inspire me to get up one more time when i fall down. Your heart is so big. (Heart problems)

My Husband and beautiful Daughters I love you for your courage and faith through the Good Bad and Ugly.

I light a candle for my best friend and comforter whenever I wasn't feeling well. Ike was 13 years old and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past Monday. He was very sick over the weekend but didn't get better. I brought him into the vet with his woobie (a lambskin bear w/felt eyes that he took off) & a crocheted blanket my grandma made him. I held him in my arms until he slipped into a peaceful slumber.

I thanked him for being there for me during all the times I was in pain & needed comfort, someone to hug, laughter, & giving me the strength to get through my stroke and many flares and surgeries. For a Basset, the vet told me I took excellent care of him in spite of his many health issues (diabetes, UC, and neck issues) and he lived well beyond his life expectancy.

I spoiled him with canned carrots, diabetic cookies, body massages, walks, car rides, letting him sit on the couch to look out the window, took him into the bank (we live in a small town) to see the girls, took him into the farm/garden shop to pick out his bones and toys, etc.

I was hospitalized 2 weeks ago for a nasty abscess on my abdomen that had to be drained in the ER (was admitted for 2 days & hooked up to an IV w/antibiotics). Ike was with me 4 days prior as I had a high temp. Once I got home & improved, he didn't want to be alone in the kitchen feeling ill, so I slept on the couch & he passed out on the floor. I was there for him in the end. We were meant for each other as I could relate to his illnesses....that's what everyone would tell me.

Now as I face more tests w/my GI as my surgeon thinks I may have a hidden fistula (I pray not), I am alone on this journey. Ike would be my source of strength & comfort & reason to go on. I really need support right now. Thanks for letting me vent.

This candle I light for my husband, who is in the dark, often frightened and unable to verbalize the emotional pain he feels for me. May the Light that shines so bright in others, touch his soul and bring him peace.

I like to light a candle today in memory of my friend Katy, who died Sunday after a short battle with a vicious type of breast cancer. The cancer was so spread out and affected the heart and caused cracks in her spine. The doctors didn't even know what to tackle first and she decided to stop all treatment on Saturday ... by Sunday morning she was gone!
I regret not having been in touch due to idiotic circumstances and will miss her dearly!
Here's to you, Katy ... I know your spririt will always be with me and I will miss your witty remarks and your sarcasm that was always spot on and caused a lot of laughter in what we called "Monster Meetings" on your back porch.
Love you lots ..
