{{{{{{{{Rain}}}}}}}}} Blessings on you, my sister. Please come to us when you need comfort and a shoulder. We are here for you.

I remember Shewhois from long ago in cyber time from when I first found these rooms and she always was a woman who I honored and respected. Her memory lives on in each of us who knew her. I'm glad I got to know her.

In Loving Memory

I don't know why the angel's came,
And decided to take her away.
They must have needed someone very special,
When they carried her on their wings that day.
I wondered how they could take her from you,
And leave you here on your own.
Then l realized her love would live on inside you,
So in your heart, you would never be alone.

God must have had a greater purpose for her,
When He decided her time on earth was done.
He must have wanted her for a heavenly angel,
So she would be able to watch over everyone.

The angels told Him she were so very special,
And could make the world a greater place to live.
So with wings full of love, they took her to Heaven,
And now everyone can feel all the love "SheWhoIs" has to give.

Your Guardian Angel just got her Wings!

((( SheWhoIs ))) You were blessed with the power and knowledge to help others.
For that my friend you will be missed.
But a great sadness falls on our hearts for we have lost a friend a sister and to some a hero. A privalege it has been to be able to have you in my life. Rest in peace my friend!

((( RainBowzz )))
No words could ever tell the pain you are going through, no words could ever help neither. As you know your mother was a great person and her ways of dealing with life have been passed down to you.

You have something special in your life now, you hold the key to happiness you hold the memory of your mother. The stories you will tell will help you to never forget her until you meet again. Remember she is looking down upon you and hugging you as you cry, she is saying I love as your tears and hers fall.. May god bless you and your family.

tribute to a great woman

Rainbowzz showed me the messages about her mam shewhois. I was assigned to Shewhois as the volunteer to help them out a little bit. The moment I entered the door we had immediate strong and warm contact and we felt blessed we received this gift of getting to know each other, we had , although it may sound strange to some people, a great time together as well as together with Rainbowzz. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye a few weeks ago because I had already planned to visit my kids in Holland and Vietnam. I came back sunday and arranged wednesday to visit Shewhois on thursday morning but early in the morning Rainbowzz called to tell me Shewhois passed on at 6 a.m.I am sure that Shewhois is still shewhois and free to move around us and visit us all whenever she feels like.That will be the gift she gives back to us all.

Rainbowzz sends her love and heart felt thanks

Rainbowzz is very comforted by all the posts but is extremely overwhelmed, exhausted and full of grief and can not yet state, in her own words, how much she loves and appreciates all of us here on the boards and in Womensspace.

Rainbowzz misses Shewhois tremendously. Is feeling very lost, alone and full of grief to the point she has not cried yet. Her healing tears will come when it's time.

Rainbowzz feels Shewhois with her, comforting her and giving her guidance, and will soon be able to say in her own words everything she wants to tell us.

I want to thank all of you, for responding so quickly and with such love, sensitivity and kindness. The women in Womensspace are a cut above others and I for one am honored to be a part of it all.

Tribute to a great woman

This is my first time trying to post a message, so I don't know if I am doing it correctly or not. I just want to join in with those who have shared their feeling about Shewhois. I only met her a few times, and don't know alot about her. I have been praying for her ever since I heard about her illness, and feel as though I know her myself. I have spent some time chatting with Leslie in womansspace. I can say that Rainbowzz is a wonderful woman as was her mother. Rain said something to me which I will always remember. She said my mother and I are old hippies. We don't need a pair of Ruby slippers to click together. A very profound statement if I have ever heard on. It brings to mind the saying that goes along with that, "There's no place like home". Shewhois, you are now home. G-d love you. Sincerely, Renee, Beanpost

No matter how old you are you still need somebody to care. Sounds simple, doesn't it? I mean the sort of caring from somebody who's been there and done that, and doesn't think you're an idiot for trying.
I just found out tonight that Shewhois has died. I knew we'd have this day, one in which I'd have tons to think about and she could watch. <g>
I liked how She could disagree with me without making me feel like a total pratt. I enjoyed the pleasure of learning new things after talking with She.
By all appearances, She enjoyed seeing me, too. I've always figured if I could make a woman laugh she was mine, in some way. I'm sure I made She laugh.
Go get 'em, darling.

Very nice post, Jetta.

Remembering Patti...

You once told me that all the people of the world were involved in the same life time dance. "we rotate partners and have sometimes mindless chatter, words we remember when they matter in life, we're dancing now, you and me, and you'll remember when it matters."

You were so right... Your lessons and words made me into the woman that I am today. A woman I love and respect. A strong woman who uses her brain and has consideration when doing so, A woman that a little girl born seven years ago can look at and admire, even more beautiful, wants to be like.

You made me a rock! Your "mindless chatter" our "dance" together, it mattered and I remembered. I remembered while going through the most devastating time of my life and it mattered, and it made me strong, and it made me get past, move on and learn. I learned my strength. Another lesson, Thank you.

I miss you so much Patti, and you still are the most amazing person I've ever danced with....

(((((((((( BxBaby )))))))))))),

Just to let you know at the " reunion" we had a time remembering those we have lost though the years.

((((((((( Shewhois ))))))))))))))) Was a wonderfully, sad memory. A memory filled with White light. Strong warm lady. Lady with love and dignity.

(((((((((( Becky )))))))))))))))) Even though we never met, I feel great love for this woman who founded WOW. Her dream lives on though Melynn and Tammy.

(((((((((((( LondonLee )))))))))))) Oh my the fun the connections. Laughter with LondonLee and her pranks.

(((((((((((TNTLOVERS)))))))))))))) a woman who wore her pain on her sleeve. It was the only way she knew how to deal with it. Hope she is feeling some quiet peace now.

((((((((((( to any and all that are not memtoned here)))))))) Know that each and everyone has touched us.


To each of our WOWs, roomies who have graced us with your prescence a shower of thanks you. A bouquet of friendship, a treasure of a lifetime.
Thank you.
Smiles are contagious. It's ok to pass them on. *

You know that woman was amazing as are and were so many that we have met along the way in here. I will never forget Shewhowis or her white Light that shone on all of us. She was an inspiration to many. I went on to build that daycare center that she told me would succeed and it has. I have made many changes in my life and one of the women that helped me find that strength within was Shewhois. Many many women in this forum have given me love and encouragement so that I feel like I have become a better person for it. Bless you all, know you are all in my heart and that I think of you all often. My heart has so many footprints from the wonderful women of WOW that it looks like a well worn beach on a summer day but Ive never seen a beach wear out so my heart is full and content. Huggs to all, I love you!!!

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
May you walk in the shadow of the Great Spirit~To help others is a special gift we can either give or take~The more you give the more you receive~
