her long and painful battle is over...for she has slipped away...into the light... of the full moon...

A couple months back Lizzy wrote a letter to all who had supported her...I asked her if I could post it here... she seemed to be feeling better...she thought she was in remission...she had a lot of hope...her will was strong...she never gave up...but she asked me to wait...she wanted to give you all good news...so I respected her wishes...sadly the cancer came back ...more powerful than ever...

I would like to post it now...for it shows just how strong and positive she was... even during her darkest hours...it also shows how much she appreciated all who touched her life... with love...all those who cared...

and those of you here in KA who prayed for her...contacted her... kept her in your thoughts...I thank you all...from the bottom of my heart...

Good bye my lovely Libra lady...I thank you for being you...for you enriched my life...you made me smile...you made me laugh...you warmed my heart...I...will be forever grateful to have known you...it was an honor...to call you my friend...I love you Lizzy...

peace & love to all
Kathy

Liz's letter follows;

Dear family and friends,

A donations drive has been created and launched by my dear friend,Diana Stapleton, my friend through my high school days, singing and theatre days, and now the hardest days of my battle with a serious form of Cancer. She has chosen to help in every level of my care, including assistance in defraying the unexpected, inordinate and catastrophic costs incurred by the explosion of severe cancer into ones' life.Including an emergency move and re-location back to Ontario, I also am no longer able to drive, or take the metro, I have been bed-ridden and house ridden for months, while enduring major surgery, procedures, hospitalizations and a year in chemotherapy, which required the acquisition of medical equipment, supplies and involving a team of doctors, nurses , home care and volunteers to assist with my care. The experience and financial devastation has been overwhelming.
Diana and her beloved circle of friends got together to ease some of the financial burden from myself and my loved ones, by putting together this remarkable fund. It has been a truly inspired experience, and your quick and generous responses, financial and items donations, your visits,donations of food, support phone calls, packages,home-made gifts, cards, emails, Cd's and more have been stunning. Thank-you for your support from the depths of my gratitude.
All the best of my love especially goes to the tireless and endless efforts and help on every level, given by my beloved family from the beginning of the illness and onwards: my mom, Jane, my sister Cathy and her husband, Mathew, my brother Mike and his wife, Sue, and all my nieces and nephews. I also wanted to thank those friends who went to great lengths of love and compassion to help me to manage the crisis explosion of the illness and also my long-term care in this ever-lengthening battle, especially, Maggie and Kerry Hayes and their family, Christopher Steel and the Steel family, Diana Stapleton and Bill Taylor, Shawn Campbell, Brenda Rundle, and all of those friends who have been there for me in so many different and creative ways. You have filled me with joy, the strength to endure, and love; the gifts of a lifetime. You have all helped me to save my life, as I grow stronger and stronger each day. I have many trials still to face but knowing you are all out there, I am confidant that I can make it. Thank-you for my life.
Love from the depths of my assuredly beating heart and a beaming Cancer and A.S.survivor,
Elizabeth Dixon

Kathy,
I'm sorry for your loss of a close friend and a very wonderful person. I remember your earlier post for Lizzy. Thanks for letting us know that Lizzy passed away. She will definitely be missed by many.

Dear kathy

I wasn't around during this time, but may I offer you my love and prayer for you loss and for her family also. I lost my father last january 2006 to cancer which in the end run riot through his body, they never give up with out a fight! I hope you can find peace and comfort in the coming months and smile at the wonderful memories you made together for nothing can take them from you. Be assured that she is free of pain now and at peace.

I don't know how spiritual you are because i don't know you, but I do feel my father near me nearly ever day wither its a smell or a memory or something strange out of the blue, I know that brings me amazing peace and I hope to that y ou and her family also will find a way that gives you comfort and peace.

All my love laura xx

I am so sorry about your friend and another beautiful soul taken from this life from this disgusting disease.

She is at rest now, although I am sure her family and friends are at such a loss.

Anytime we lose someone it is our own selfishness that wishes them to still be here, even though there is nothing wrong with that.

It sounds like she had a wonderful life and wonderful family and friends.

Lisa

Hello Oak,

Your reply really touched me...you are so right about Lizzy dancing and singing...for she was a teacher...an actress...a singer and a song writer...she was a very talented lady... and music was a big part of her life...it brought her much joy...so yes! I do believe she dancing... forever...pain free!

Thank-you Oak for your prayers
peace & love
Kathy
