I had a friend who passed away this weekend. Her name was Pat and she was an avid Disney lover and Charter DVC member from 1991. She passed after a fairly long bout with cancer. I know the family would appreciate your prayers and thoughts.

Definite prayers and thoughts for the family. :angel: My wonderful mother was diagnosed with lung cancer almost a year ago and I now totally understand how devastating it is. We truly live one day at a time.

My condolences. :(


I wonder if however this thread doesn't belong on the memorial board?


(I am sensitive to the matter at hand, but isn't that the "proper" place for this?}

I was thinking today of all the times we've been discussing DVC over the years when we likely had work we could have been doing. And laughing with her when she said she didn't mind treating her kids and grandkids but she'd be dogged if she let them go without her when they called and wanted to. She was a neat lady and we will miss her. A little piece of DVC died with her this weekend in my eyes.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend - it is strange she is the second Pat that I have said that about this week. A good friend called and said that her dear friend Pat had lost her long battle with cancer this weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dean, please accept my deepest sympathy on the lose of your friend. My husband has been battling a long struggle against colon cancer and I know how strong a person (and their friends and family) have to be to endure the fight. Godspeed.............

I'm sorry for your loss and her family's. I'm so glad she got to enjoy vacations with her family. I hope no one thinks I'm trivializing her loss, but this is exactly why we cherish DVC. Tomorrow is promised to no one, and vacation is when we get to regroup with our kids without any daily pressures. We've had so many wonderful memories and it sounds like Pat did too.

I am so sorry for the loss of your friend Dean. I was just reading another thread and was touched by what they said. I found comfort in their words (I hope you don't mind Tigger031266) and I still have them on my cut and paste so here goes:

I have to believe that heaven must be something like getting 20,000 DVC Points with no expirations. I really think that when I die, God is going to send me to a DVC up in the sky with all of our friends that we have lost.


I look forward to this time. But I also know how much it hurts when a friend leaves us. Prayers for all in pain.:grouphug:

I passed on the well wishes of the members of this board to Pat's family. They had a photo slide show going and a large part of them were at Disney. Her daughter was telling me how Pat and her husband always invited them to go with them, and they frequently accepted, but she would not hear of anyone using her points unless she could go to. The family expresses their appreciation for the prayers and well wishes. It reminds me how this board is much like a family, we may disagree and even bicker among ourselves but don't let anyone else mess with us.

Dean, please accept my conodolences for the loss of your friend, and well wishes to the family of the dear lady.

Traditionally, memorial threads on the DVC Boards remain for about 48 hours to allow everyone to express their condolances. After that time they are closed and moved to the DIS In Memoriam forum. This thread is being moved there now.
