Leontien.....

Bless you Leontien....your pain and suffering are over.  God bless your dear family.  When I found out today that you had passed into the next life, my heart sank, and I feel much sadness.  But, I am happy for you also, I am happy you are not feeling the pain that you have suffered for so long.  I have a empty spot in my heart today.  God bless you and your family. 

As I was walking to the back of my office to fill my coffee cup, tears came to my eyes.  I really will miss Leontien.  She didn't know me, but because of her blog I knew her.  I knew her feelings, her happiness, her sense of humor, her passions, her sweet husband and family.  I knew her determination to beat the cancer that had invaded her body.  I knew her fight till the last moment when she peacefully passed through the veil and met loved ones that had already passed on.  I want to tell you all that I am so grateful for you.  My heart is full of love and appreciation for your friendships.  Most of us haven't even talked on the phone, or even really know where each one of us lives, but our lives are intertwined through blogging.  We get to know each other in very unique ways.  I won't ramble anymore, I just want you all to know that I love you very much my dear, dear friends.

We will all miss you Leontien!

Yes, we do all get connected through our blogs, don't we. Leontien will be missed. Prayers for peace and comfort for her loved ones left behind.

I had just begun to get to know Leontien after she was nice enough to comment on my blog. I'm sorry I didn't get to know her longer. I offer my sympathy to her family and friends.

A beautiful tribute to Leontien.

Love you too Susan. I cherish my blog friends so much. What a blessing to have a network of folks that we share the good and the difficult times with.

Thanks to your earlier post, I stocked up on healthy snacks at the store today. I'll be chopping, slicing and dicing this weekend!
