The Minnow Is in Port

My friend Pie's spirit has left her body around 5:30pm CST. She is now with all the others she has loved who have gone before her.

She always said that while she might be dying she was having to much fun to die. Up till Monday night she really was having to much fun to die, but after Tuesday it wasn't fun any more.

I will always remember her as she was last week, a wild woman with a wicked sense of humor and the kind of courage I'd never seen before. She is at peace and out of pain and with those she loved the most.

It's hard, isn't it. And so unfair.

I hope you can feel this big hug that's aimed in your direction.

Dearest Guusje,

I was one of the Blessed who knew Pie thru the internet and even more blessed to have met her 2x and also to have met you.

I have loved coming in here and reading your blogs and often going away with a warm and comforted feeling.

Thank you so much for being there for Pie, and for me (and the rest of us Flockers).

Yes, Pie is now happier than she ever was here on this big ball of dirt, but you had a BIG part in making her last days here Wonderful & Happy!

Thank you!

Pie was very, very lucky in one way--she had a good friend like you to help her through things.

Sending lots of good thoughts your way. Maud-vibes too, though I'm off the list right now.......
