Ursol hasn't been on the site for quite a while (either have I) but she was one of my first "friends" here. I was so happy to get a chance to meet her in person a few months ago. She leaves behind 3 young children. I HATE this disease.

Oh this one hurts :cry: . Thank you, Janet for posting. Lilly was a good friend of my niece, Tracy, while she was here and she became one of mine as well. I have noted her extended absence and, as always, when that happens I am hopeful for the best. Dammit, I am just plain angry. My heartfelt sentiments will be with her family and her precious children. I personally know haw difficult it is for young ones to lose a mother. This just leaves me with nothing else much to say.

My best to you, Janet. Hope you are doing well.
