A Hopi Prayer
Do not stand at my grave and weep
To Ginnie, a chat friend, who was very
talented with much to offer the world.
To Toode, or Ginnie, I was known merely as Sue or Estate. We met in a News chatroom and from the very first, we realized we were kindred spirits. We both loved books and gardens and grandchildren and beautiful weather and learning...always learning.
I am a retired newspaper managing editor. Finally, I had met online an inquisitive, sensitive, moral, and, yes, funny, woman near my own age. You have no idea how much I will miss her. How I wish we could have done lunch and a book together. Estate4th
My sincere condolences to "Toode's" family. I met her on AOL in Today's News Chat and she was one of the first people to greet me a few years back. She was a lovely lady who was well informed on many topics and she will truly be missed. Gennylce
Whenever Toode appeared in the room, I'd smile. I knew that a sincere, sweet greeting to me would come next. She was a special woman... she will be sorely missed by me and all who appreciated her intelligence and humor and sincerity. Judy tenplyr40luv
