Remembering Renee

Just went to Renee's blog to read what I think is the last thing she posted herself.  For courage, awe and inspiration you can see that last post here.  What an amazing woman.  There will never be another like Renee.  Here is her last post to her hundreds of blogging friends:

"Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then you shall truly dance….
For what is it to die, but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun….
And what is it to cease breathing,
but to free the breath, from its restless tides,
that it may rise,
and expand,
and seek God

~~ Kahlil Gibran ~~

Thank you all for your love, I am truly grateful.

  1. I hadn't seen her blog before. I went to her earliest posts of about two years ago when she had cataract surgery and relatively recent diagnosis of cancer... and lots and lots of anger. Quite a transformation! May she fly to peace.

  2. And sorrow and joy for a life well lived.

  3. May light perpetual shine upon her...

  4. An angel among us! Thinking of you today! Much love, Silke

  5. Every time I hear about another young person dying from cancer it takes me right back to that awful place, and another little part of me dies.

    Too young. Too soon. Too unfair. I'm sorry.

  6. Oh hon...that was so beautiful..so beautiful. So will be so missed..everywhere she touched. She had a gift for making things bloom. Sending gentle hugs to you today my friend.
    Love, Sarah

  7. Such a sad day. I posted the same thing today, connecting with her by posting her last words to all of us. I think I found you through Renee, and for that I am grateful.

    Sending you lots of hugs and love, especially today.

  8. She was a beautiful angel here on earth.

    I will miss her terribly...

    But I know that she is soaring over those bats and black birds now... free.

  9. I read Renee’s blog and was always hoping that she could get into remission. I am sorry, she will be immensely missed. Your post is a nice tribute to a wonderful lady.
