Oh Dear FReeper FRiend - I am so very sorry to hear of the death of Alia. I have exchanged posts with both of you over the years & never knew you were a married couple or even related!

Her writing skills always intrigued me. She had a real way with words & I had the feeling she was either an author or involved in some way with theater or movies.

I will pray for your family. This obviously came on suddenly w/o warning . I dont recall ever hearing her mentioned illness or health problems.

None of us ever know when our last week, day or breath will be.

Take care & please lean on your creator & your friends and family at this time. I know that is harder for men often but will help you get through the difficult days ahead as you heal & grieve.

I like to believe that when someone so beloved closes the door on her current life, she opens the door to Eternity and a life free from pain and caring.

it has been 15 years since my beloved left me for eternity and yet I still talk to him and feel he is able to watch over his family.

May her soul and the souls of all the Faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen

May the Dear Lord receive Alia into his loving arms and may he comfort you and her children in the loss of a wife and mother.

I didn't know Alia but I just looked at her home page (see the birds flying) and checked her postings. I was shocked to see that her last posting was;

Monday, April 20, 2009 2:26:25 PM · 88 of 121
Alia to fishtank
"What you do is your own business. But banning Meghan articles from FR will have the very opposite effect cyber-wise from what you might like to see as a result. Why not just ignore the threads."

If she was ill there was no sign of it. Was her passing sudden and unexpected?

Please find a moment in your day today to remember her in prayer.

Dear Lord...please welcome your child of God...Alia as she journeys into her final destination of Heaven. Forgive her all things so that she and her family may rest knowing she is home at last. Amen.

Our sincere condolences...

Dear Spunky, when she went to bed at 10:30 pm, she was perfectly fine, so far as I could see. She passed away in my arms at 11:50 pm. This happened with no more than suggestive signs that could have been interpreted any which way, as she did herself.

God bless you for asking.

I just heard about Alia over at WA where the news was posted (she used to visit there frequently too). I am so very deeply sorry to hear about this. She will absolutely be genuinely missed by all of us here at FR & at WA, BelegStrongbow - truly she will.

I was telling the folks who knew her over there that it's odd in that none of us on these forums ever meet each other in real life, but I nonetheless had such a vivid picture of Alia in my mind as this extraordinarily beautiful & supremely elegant woman because that was exactly the way she wrote. She really was a truly gifted woman; in addition to having a genuinely rare intelligence, the full life she managed to lead during her time on this earth allowed her an even rarer insight into human nature. Her posts were always such a wonderfully delicious treat for the mind!

So in addition to all of the other members here I too will be praying for you and the rest of her family BelegStrongbow, and I'll be asking God especially to make sure He gives you some extra strength to see you through this very painful time ahead. I really do feel that FR has lost a true light here, so I can only imagine that the darkness you surely feel right now must be quite overwhelming.

Godspeed that the very worst of this terrible loss will soon pass for you & that your heart can be lifted by the brightness of Alia's lovely spirit again soon through all the wonderful memories she left behind for you to cherish until you can see her again!

Lord be with you in this time. This mighty trying time. May you take strength in knowing that the gentle heart of your wife is joined with our Lord in Heaven. That you are prayed for here and in Heaven. May the Lord comfort you and help you in the ways that only He knows that you need.
Amen.

Dear Beleg,

May you be comforted by the same ministering spirits who ministered to Our Lord Jesus as he experienced the desert. May the One who is Truth be your companion as you grieve Alia’s passing. Earth’s loss is truly Heaven’s gain. By God’s vast mercy may we all be together with her and the saints in Glory for ages and ages, AMEN.
