I am so very sorry. May you find comfort and peace.
Condolences to you and the remainder of Alia’s family and friends. Thank you very much for posting.
Alia was a very important contributor. She will be missed.
Wow! Alia will be missed.
My Gosh, I am so sorry for your loss.....
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.
God has Himself a new Angel.
May He bless you and your family, and comfort you all.
My heart and my prayers go out to you and yours.
I am so sorry. I will say a prayer tonite, although she is in a better place
So sad to hear.
Will keep you and your family in our prayers.
Please take consolation in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, the wonderful memories and the knowledge that your wife rests in the arms of our Lord.
My condolences to you, and your family, and I’ll be saying a Rosary for all of you, tomorrow.
Longtime member I see. And she made her last post not even 36 hours ago....
I’m very sorry for your loss.
Oh, I am SO sorry to read this!!!!!
Please accept our condolences...May God be with you during this time...
And I’m sorry for such a late response, I just now found this in my pings...
So terribly sorry to hear of your loss!!!!!
...so terribly sorry to hear of your tragic loss — we are all thinking of you here tonight..........
Remembering Alia in prayer.
May God bless you and your family. Trust in God.
Our deepest sympathies and prayers.
God bless her and her family.
Prayers that Alia rest in peace.
Prayers that you know peace and comfort.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss, dear BelegStrongbow and join with all the others here lifting you and the loved ones up to God for His healing, peace and guidance as you deal with her homegoing.
You and yours are in my prayers.
I am so sorry. May the Lord comfort you in your grief.
Prayers to you and yours.
Offering my condolences to you, in this sorrowful time. Rest now, upon the strength of Christ, and draw upon it, and the comfort of FRiends also, as you begin to regain strength of your own.
My prayers and condolences.
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;

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...
May Alia rest in God’s peace.
Prayers for and condolences to you and your wife’s other families and friends.
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.
Prayers lifted for Alia and her family.
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!
So very sorry for your loss. Prayers and condolences.
Prayers sent for you and your family Beleg, that God will help comfort you.
I love the birds on Alia’s page. She is flying with the Angels now.
Deep condolences and prayers from a fellow traveler in Ct.
I am so very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed Alia’s posts very much.
God Bless and comfort you in your loss.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
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.
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.
My condolences too. She was a nice person here too.
Prayers to you and your family.
God bless you and your loved ones in this difficult time...
God bless Alia. May God bless and comfort you and your family.
Alia is safe in the arms of Jesus. My prayers go out to her family.
