Hello my friends,
I just wanted everyone to know I think you're all awesome. What a caring group, to reach out to a member you have met only online — and to her husband, who must be in unbelievable pain. I'm sure the community is making a difference to him at this difficult time.
I feel very lucky to be a part of the group, and I know if I am ever in difficulty, I have a place to turn. Independence day is tomorrow, but we're not always all that independent, you know? God bless you all.PetalsMemberJuly 8, 2004 at 11:44 amPost count: 2373
Hello Imsw1, Yes there are eyes and ears out here!
Since the tragic passing of Michaela I have noticed that the board is a little quiet on other postings. That is understandable. Also there are members who read but do not post, those that write but do not acknowledge. Personally, I think this is also a quiet time for solids? You are not alone! Your sentiments, I am sure, have been acknowledged.
Really appreciate all you have to say………

Yes, I agree with Jacky.
I always read everything and sometimes some things are better left unsaid.
LMSW1 what you said was very touching and heartfelt, thanks. <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />NancyMemberJuly 8, 2004 at 9:49 pmPost count: 515
I am reminded of one of my favourite TV shows here, Frasier. Remember what he said? “I'm listening” Only a show and not real life but we're here!
I agree that the site is somewhat subdued due to our shock at Michaela's death. We are very reflective at the moment.SandraMemberJuly 8, 2004 at 10:00 pmPost count: 2188
Yep – apologies LMSW1 . . . . how unthoughtful of us not to reply to your posting here – an important one. In support of the others I too, had read it, appreciated it and left it there . . . . perhaps for someone else to reply to, or perhaps thinking it was generally towards everbody and didn't need a personal response.
However, now you've pointed it out, I think we all agreed that yes, we are fortunate to have other caring people in the world who are real and to share our emotions with about solids and other things. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
Michaela's death certainly had an impact on all of us and most I would say are just sad and shocked at this time. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />DeniseMemberJuly 10, 2004 at 10:30 pmPost count: 285
I apologize also as I have stayed away from the Site for a couple of days as I am still a bit sad about Michaela. There are many wonderful people on this Site in which I am grateful to. I wish I could come up with a Joke or two, but I'll leave that to the more humorous members of the Site. <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />
Nancy, they don't show Frasier here in the U.S., but I do watch McGyver because he's so clever not to mention cute! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> And I do wish they would put back the Reruns of Perry Mason.NancyMemberJuly 11, 2004 at 10:06 amPost count: 515
They don't show Frasier???? I'm shocked!!! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />
How deprived you are then, it's wonderful.DeniseMemberJuly 11, 2004 at 3:46 pmPost count: 285
Ouch! I made a mistake because they do show Frasier in the U.S.
I never saw it as I always put on a Movie at 9:00 P.M., Sorry!!! <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />MicheleMemberJuly 11, 2004 at 4:05 pmPost count: 874
Hi lmsw1 –
My apologies, also, for not responding to your pleasant, heartfelt post. Yes, it was due in part to Michaela, and in part to the time of year.
As far as Michaela is concerned, it's time to let go. I know many of you will not agree with me, but Michaela was gone long before she said goodbye. (And I really wish I had read that post earlier…it would have set off red lights, bells and whistles for me!) However, it's time to move on with our lives, always remembering Michaela, if even for a little while each time we see her Dragon.
If “humor” bothers some people, possibly they do not understand that sometimes it's a way to hide pain. So be it. Michaela would not have wanted any of us to change our ways…she loved this site and the people on it for what they are…not for what they think they should be.
On that note, I will end this post as Michaela ended her emails to me….one…final…time…
