Oh, I am so sorry to hear this. Yes, she was a great person and I was friends with her but couldn't download her website she had because of my computer. Otherwise, I would have known about this and now I'm feeling sick. I did not know about the cancer. I loved it when she came here and did her fascinating stories and she gave me wonderful advice all the time. RIP Darkwing, I will always remember you and your loving peaceful ways.

GG, I actually think she would have told me, had we kept in touch more often as we hit it off so well. I feel just awful for that part of it. I always waited for her to come here and start a new discussion but thought her website kept her too busy. It just makes me feel so bad as I really had quite a respect for her and felt like I really knew her.......that's how comfortable she made people feel. I'm glad you were friends with her and I'm sure she felt the same way. What a sad day it is for all who knew her or even were lucky enough to have any contact with her. Hugs to you GG and take care of yourself. No adhyz82, she lived in England.

I am so sorry gabs, the name sounds familiar, but she wasn't a friend here, but that doesn't mean we never connected. I also don't think this will be removed, at least I hope not, because how else is everyone going to know what happened? One person can't PM someone's friends, especially if they have many friends.. Anyway, I am sorry for your lose and for what mylot has lost, she sounds like she was a wonderful person..

That explains why her name sounds familiar, (because we probably did communicate here), but in the past 16 plus months, other than short breaks once in a while, I am not active because of my school work..So I probably talked to her long before that, but when I started school, I no longer searched for posts to reply to, only my friend's post...

Hi, being new here I'm not familiar with her at all, but it is always a sad thing to loose a friend to a disease especially to cancer. I have known several+ with it and some have lost their lives, & my dad had it twice. The best lady in the world online that I know has it now, she was just operated on to remove the tumors but still has to undergo treatment. She has been the kindest person to me online other than a few others who have shown me their kind side as well. I am sorry for your friend, and for your loss. My prayers are out to you all who knew her.

I remember her vaguely. I don't think she was on my friends but I know I've commented on some of her posts... I am so sorry for your loss. Cancer runs in my family and I have watched many fight the battle and either win or lose. They have now been testing me as well for I have become terribly ill recently. But I'm getting off subject... May she rest in peace and may you find peace with her passing.

Thank you. I will probably post something about it when I find out. Part of me is scared to know. I don't know if I have the strength to fight it like so many out there. I'm sure your friend fought. I'm sure she was strong even in the face of cancer. At least she's not in pain anymore. I'll be sending you good thoughts!

I'm in tears now over hearing this. I used to love reading her posts here, and I loved reading her articles on Associated Content. She made me see, feel, and hear what was all about her as she took me on different tours. She would talk about her walks. She was a prolific writer. She will always be missed.

Dearest Gabs first of all my heartfelt condolences to you. Its always so sad and heartbreaking to lose a good friend but its especially heartbreaking when you know someone will not be able to fight this disease any longer. I dont think I knew Darkwing but I am glad you had such a great friend in her. You ask how do you deal with it. Hmmmm you sure know I lost my heart mom July 2011 to cancer as well. All right she lived up to the nice age of 80 years old but that didnt make me miss her less. She had given me tons and tons of encouragement in the years I knew her and I tried to be an encourager to her as well when I got word of the diagnosis. The first days I was like hit on the head. As we didnt have much time from when we knew to the memorial service in a town 5 hours drive from us I wonder how we managed to get the heart of carnations to go with her to her final place of rest in time.... I cried through all of the Memorial cause I missed her so much. Even almost cried into the coffee I was hand filtering for my husband one morning. I then said to myself she would not want me to cry so I just did my best to stop. It was and still is very therapeutic for me to write a diary to her as if she still was alive. This seemed to help me cope with the situation. If you need help coping you know I am only an e mail away from you........ hugs

I am so sorry Gabs. It is so hard when a good friend or anyone you know passes away. I have a good friend whom I have known since high school and she was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago. It has been so hard for her and her and her family. She has been in remission several times, only for the cancer to reappear. I know that it is only a matter of time and there are days when she is in so much pain that it makes me cry to see her this way. But I will share something with you that she has told me many times. When I go please do not cry for me because I will always be here in your heart and in your memories and if you must cry then let it be tears of happiness because I will no longer suffer. I hope this helps you in some way.

Dear Gabs This really shakes me deep within. Though I did not know about our friend lotter - Darkwing - but her sad demise does bring out the sad issues that we face on the Internet World. And this raises my worries for at least two of my dearest friends - HWG and frajil who have been absent from Mylot since ages now and I have no way to find out any information about them. All I can say for Darkwing is I join you in your prayers and thoughts of the departed soul and RIP Darkwing.

No PQ as she has not been back since you changed it she has not been here for about 16 months so she would not have seen it I have cried all Day and I still well up but I need to calm myself now, she would have told me of for this you know, she would have said, Oi Girl what are you doing to yourself, now stop that come on. I can just hear her

That's the way she was. I remember her well. I liked her a lot. We didn't email each other, but we did message each other on mylot PM... and we shared each other's links at AC for writing. I never knew she had cancer though. I guess that is why I am so shocked about it all. I believe she is like God is... we can think of her and she will be with us. You know, I miss Ivan so much. But I can think of him, and suddenly his spirit is there with me. I can feel it. I don't see it, but I see him in my mind's eye. That is how I will also remember Darkwing. I will remember her avatar when I think of her. She was one wise woman. She had so much wisdom about her. I'm glad to have known her as well as I did.

Thank you so much for posting this hon. I am so sad for the loss of our wonderful friend. I've been gone from here for so long...and it's killing me to know that I won't be able to "converse" with her here anymore. My heart and prayers go out to all of Darkwing's family and friends. In answer to your question, the only way that I can deal with a loss like this is through prayer and the help of friends and family. Love you sweetie...I'm here for you.

Hi gabs, So sorry to hear this sad news. My friend, it is never easy to deal with the passing of a loved one but everyone has to deal with it at some time in thrir life. Darkwing must have gone through a great deal of suffering and stress since she was first diagnosed with this disease and now she is free from all of that. Hope is also a great consolation and perhaps you can allow yourself to hope that somewhere, somehow, you will meet again. Let her go and remember the happier times. Blessings.
