I don't blog anymore, but right now I feel I need to. I want to. Just this once.
I met Shamae a few years back through the DOC. Our Sunday night chats...those were so special. I was going through a very tough time back then. Not only because of D (Bee had been diagnosed for a few years already when I found the DOC), but because of other personal issues in my life then. Those Sunday night chats really helped get me through some very tough times. Each Sunday night I would hurry to get the kids in bed so I could have some adult D momma time with a group of my very favorite people. We would talk about everything, from our kids to other life issues. We had our inside jokes. We had our special language. We had each other.
Our Sunday night chats became less frequent when Faceboook became more prevalent. But we all still kept in touch. Talking, laughing, supporting each other when needed. We are a very close community and when something happens to one of us, it happens to ALL of us. We are ALL really feeling this loss right now.
You were a beautiful person, Shamae. Inside and out. Things weren't always easy for you with the health issues your girls faced and the health issues you faced. But you were always SO strong. No matter what was going on in your life, you were always there to support others.
Thank you for everything. The laughs, the love, the support. Thank you for being you. You will be missed, my sweet friend.
