Jim, do we have a “memorial wall” type of page that lists FReepers who have crossed over? It seems only fitting to recognize those who are waiting to welcome the rest of us someday...

UGH....my sincere condolences. :( I am very saddened to hear this news. Such a wonderful prayer warrior.

I recall the times she faithfully hit her prayer ping list for my sister as Sarah was dying at the age of 32 also due to a lung disease.

She will be missed but I rejoice in her faith and her reward.

God’s grace to Kayak and her family....forever.
Amen

Mike

Loving thoughts for you and the rest of your family this morning.

It just seems so appropriate that Kay was born on Valentine's Day, for surely she represented the best of what that holiday is all about.

In reflecting on the Kay I had the privilege to know, love and triumph are the words which come immediately to mind; we all agree that she has left us too early (and I note, we all agree - rare unanimity for FReepers!), her ability to care about everyone and to raise above circumstances has been inspirational.

Kay lived long enough to see her children past the trials of young adulthood and into settled and secure lives. She had the courage and fortitude to start and maintain a business enterprise. She kept everyone organized and in-line, she demonstrated a gracious wit and intelligence that many tried to emulate both on and off these FR boards, and she gave a last, inspirational example of how to triumph over her final earthly challenge.

Others have made more eloquent tributes to your dear mother -- the key note of all our comments is that she was admired, respected and leaves a gap in the FR community which will not be easily - nor quickly filled.

To Kay - who is probably at this point helping St. Peter get his payroll organized! Miss you...

The loving and heartfelt posts on this thread is a beautiful testament to how your mother touched people’s lives. She was a friend to all of us. She will be missed.

God rest her soul and God bless you and your family, poppyseed.

Well, it’s been a week since Mama died. It hasn’t gotten easier; it hasn’t even gotten more real. But we’ve settled into a new routine, one that doesn’t center entirely around her, at least not externally.

I suppose her funeral was beautiful, but I found no beauty in it. I confess that I found little comfort in the words of the minister. My comfort is only that she is no longer in pain, but that doesn’t ease my pain at losing my mama. I suppose that, like the rest of grief, will take time to work out.

I came here because of Mama. Many of you probably don’t know that I am not, ideologically speaking, a FReeper. I came here at a time when she couldn’t, to tell her friends what was happening to her. I worried that it would be an intrusion, both for her and for y’all, but she was glad and y’all seemed glad to have me here, speaking on her behalf. She loved you folks. And with good reason. We may not agree politically, but I didn’t come here for anything as crass as politics. What I came here for was for my mother’s friends, as a bridge. And I found here so much love and comfort, not just for Mama, but for my own self. Good people here, good reason Mama loved you all. Thank you for that.

It’s time I leave, though, I think, since Mama isn’t around any more. I’m not the least bit interested in politics these days, one way or the other. I am interested in keeping in touch with some of you, though, especially those of you who were especially close to Mama. I’ll check FReepmail the next couple of days, give any of you who are interested a way to get in touch with me off FR. And then, after the next few days, I’ll probably go back to MY homes on the Web, and off Mama’s turf.

I want to thank you all, again, for all your many prayers; for your comforting words for Mama and my whole family; for loving my mama, whom I still miss so much it physically aches. There are not enough words for my gratitude, nor for how much my mother loved you and how much you buoyed her up, for years. Thank you will have to suffice, though, since I lack the proper words. I think maybe the English language lacks the proper words for how much you’ve meant to my mother over the years, and to me and my family over the last few months.

If you could copy and paste this to ATRW, the Dose (I’m not even sure what that is), anywhere Mama’s FRiends might be, I’d appreciate it a great deal.

Much love and gratitude to you all.

Dear, sweet, poppyseed.

God bless you sweetie..and God and your Mom are very, very proud of you.

You have done a great job of keeping us informed..and even close to Kay during the last few months.

I know you are in a lot of pain...and I pray God relieves you of some of it soon...

Please, have a happy life..you know that is what your Mom wants for you. Where ever life takes you, just know that you, as well as your Mom were much loved here on Free Republic.

Thanks for checking in with us, poppyseed. Your Mother would be so very proud of the way you kept us all updated.

We all loved and respected your Mom, so much. Please tell her grandchildren how much she was loved by total (well almost total) strangers.

I know you’re hurting now, but with time the pain will ease, and you will have all those beautiful memories to hold on to.

How great and marvelous is Your mercy, O God, for You have made a way for this mother’s child to joyously reunite with her beloved Mama. Thank You that Kay is eternally alive in the Presence of Christ the King, her Savior and Redeemer, and there she awaits. Grace Kay’s family with strength to endure the heartache they now feel ... walk with them through each tear and sorrow ... bring them once again into the sunshine of life, knowing that the very essence of Kay will be with them from generation to generation, such is Your love.

Blessed be Your Name, both now and forevermore, Amen ...

Kay was loved and inspiration to us. We appreciate your efforts to communicate with her friends here on FR.

This is foremost a political site but as you have experienced, Freepers support one another and their families in many ways....especially by prayer.

May God bless you and your family. And may the Peace and Love of Our Heavenly Father comfort and guide you.

I’m so sorry. I’m sitting here getting chilled as I read about Kayak. My pastor’s mother is going through the very same thing right now. One day they will both fall asleep in their rooms and wake up in God’s. What a glorious day that will be! Our hearts may be broken, but theirs will be made whole and well. God bless you all and give you HIS peace.

Nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee! E’en though it be a cross that raiseth me, still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down, darkness be over me, my rest a stone; yet in my dreams I’d be nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

There let the way appear, steps unto heaven; all that thou sendest me, in mercy given; angels to beckon me nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

Then, with my waking thoughts bright with thy praise, out of my stony griefs Bethel I’ll raise; so by my woes to be nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

Or if, on joyful wing cleaving the sky, sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward I fly, still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to thee; nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
