As I stand on the mountaintop, the great bird approaches.
She is small in my sight, but grows larger on approach until I am blessed with the full sight of her graceful wings, proud countenance and good company.
 
All too quickly, she grows small again on the horizon and disappears from view.
And I call out, "Look, there. She's gone."
 
But there are other mountaintops beyond me.
And at the precise moment when I note the great bird's departure from my view, I know there are new eyes taking up the sight of her.....
And fresh voices calling out, "Look! Here she comes!"

 

 

Just beautiful ...

I just saw this. I am not here as frequently as I was.

This is very, very sad. Like many others, Mushroom was a great friend and teacher when I arrived in this forum.

I will truly miss her.

I didn't realize until today.  :(  I was wondering where she was...

 

She was lovely and helped me a bunch too. One I regretted would only remain a penpal. What a loss for everyone who has known her.

 

Best wishes to her family.

Irish kindly told me about this dreadful news when we were in Croatia. Talk about shocking and so very sad. She leaves a void and will dearly be missed by so many who cherished her. She was so helpful and kind and witty; yet she told it straight when necessary. I appreciate that. I bet she touched more lives than she realized.

Words cannot adequately describe how I sympathize with Shroomie's family. Typing this just seems so wrong. I hardly even know what to say. Take comfort with good memories. Hold them close to your hearts.

I was wondering if anyone (mods?) has Neroli's address and would be willing to pm it to me? I'd like to send her husband a card with a short note telling him how she helped me and my family with our health issues and what a difference she made in our lives... even from so far away.

I'd be happy to. Give me a few minutes to get to my address book:)

Did you get it to Nicole?

 

a few days ago there was a mushroom shoot in my grocery bag tomatoes -- got giggled at by someone whom has mushrooms everywhere this time of year -- but they are rare in my neck of the desert

 

then yesterday I was watching the movie 'Epic' in 3D with the son -- in one scene the forest magically comes back to life and one of the first images is shrooms popping up that looked very much like Shroomie's Avitar -- jeez her spirit is just as strong as her personality -- miss you Shroom-ster.

Oh my goodness, I just found this thread. How sad and shocking... mushroom was SO very helpful when I first landed here, and well, always, really.

 

That's a really beautiful poem, IH.

That's a really beautiful poem, IH.

 

I read it at both my Dad's service and a good friend's memorial service and I should have given the credit to the author.

 

I first heard it on television and looked it up because I found it to be quite beautiful and apropos for someone who is a" force of nature" like Neroli. :)

 

It is adapted (rather liberally) from A Parable of Immortality, by Henry Van Dyke..

My husband and I lost a lifelong friend on the same day as Neroli -- yep it was one very tough day for us.  Yesterday we attended a huge memorial celebration for our friend followed by a paddle out at the beach we all grew up on.  Was privately wishing I could have attended my other friend's memorial -- been able to meet her family and friends and let them all know how very much she is missed.

 

So from my crew to hers...here is the send off we gave our San Diego Friend -- Farewell Neroli :)

That's very beautiful, Lisa. I'm so sorry about your friend.

In an unfortunate coincidence, directly before opening the email from Shroomie's husband informing me of her passing, I learned that a friend of my husband and I had also passed that morning. He had been fighting colon cancer and doing well, so this was for the most part unexpected.
