Friends Together - A Tribute to Dee

I had a kinky little caption scheduled for this morning, but something more important has come up. 

If you have not already read the sad news, Dee's GF of 20+ years passed away suddenly yesterday morning. 

Dee is, understandably, devastated and in need of our love and support. So, please, whether you know her from her blog, Rachel's Haven, or just her comments and friendship here, please leave her a message wherever you like to let her know you are thinking of her.

This is for you, Dee.


  1. Just lovely Sally....we all nee to rally around one of our own!!!
    Dee has certainly earned it and she certainly needs it now!!!
    My wife and I have already offered her our love and support and I urge everyone reading this to do the same!!!!

    1. And this started me crying again....I find it doesn't take much since yesterday...

    2. I know the feeling. I exchanged a couple of emails with Dee, so I know she's OK, and I've offered her whatever help my beloved and I can, but it's still such a shock. I can't begin to fathom what she woke up to yesterday. :(

  2. That was very heartfelt and amazing. I had tried a few times to make a tribute cap to her for all she’s done for the community, but I’m not going to do better than that. It is nice to know you’ve talked to her. That’s an unthinabkle heartache to have to go through.

    1. I was hesitant, because I didn't want to do anything that trivialized her loss, but this just sort of came to me and I felt like it was perfect. :)

  3. Thank you so much Sally. You didn't make it about her, but about our sisterhood, and that made me smile in a much different way than I've tried to while honoring her memory as best I can.

    The last day or two has been much more in the way of "Good Cry"ing if one could understand that phrase in context. I know at some point soon, the testimonies and remembrances of her will slow down to a stop as others start to move on with their lives. That is what I fear right now .. but I recognize it as understandable, as I have done to same to others.

    I will honor her daily as best I can. But I also know that I do have some friends, wherever and however I obtained them, that will help remain the person I am, even with such a huge hole ripped directly from my being.

    I thank all of you for being so understanding.
