I am so glad we set up a breakfast date. It really was nice to spend that time with her. And - you are right - those moments will always be with me!

All I can say is don't be drinking a beverage when you see our costumes - you might wreck you computer screen!

It is a memory that will last quite awhile. Sometimes its hard to think about it. Such poise and grace. How I wish it could have been different.

It really was a fun DIS meet and I'm so happy that everyone showed up! OMG - Mary's girls really are adorable and they are so incredibly friendly. I am hoping to see them again in June! Sheree's girls are lovely too, although they are a little bit more reserved.

I think I was really prepared to write about it. I was really looking forward to it. At the same time I was apprehensive about it because I know what hell she went through during the summer. But she put us at ease immediately and it was a wonderful breakfast. Cynthia found that pillow. She did darn good!

Those girls are just absolutely adorable. I have seen their pictures on Kathy's TR on so many occasions and I knew they were sweet kids. I am hoping to see Mary, Kathy, and the girls in June. Looking forward to it.

We definitely hit it just right with that DISmeet. So many DISers were at the world at the same time and we were able to hit on a date when everyone could be there. Score!

Great update! It must have been hard doing this update, posting about Tracy. I'm glad you got to see her on this trip. She looked beautiful, you would never know she was sick from your pictures! I love the pillow you guys got for her, perfect!

Wow, that DIS meet looks like it was so much fun! I always see Cayley and Avery in Kathy's TR's and I think they are so beautiful, it must have been fun to meet them, they seem like such sweet girls!

Epcot was gorgeous that day, I love all of your pictures, as always!

She did look quite thin in her pictures but I will always think of her FB posts of this trip of being filled with joy! If you didn't know she was sick, you would never have known from her comments. It comforts me to believe that last trip was so happy for her!



What a fun group Can't wait for my next Dismeet

Apparently one of her favorite sayings had become, "Just Believe", so the pillow was more than perfect. We definitely formed a lovely memory that morning.

I knew Tracy was very ill and I knew her prognosis had to be poor, but I still thought she would live more than 2 months. It's still crazy to think about, but I am so glad we had the time together.

So you visited it? I heard it was pretty cool. I know they closed Rive Country because of using the lake for swimming, so I guess closing Discovery Island was an extension of that.

I'm sorry I started to go to Disney after Discovery Island closed. I think my first trip was right after it closed. I bet it was fun to tour the island. I heard or read that there was quite an array of birds on the island.

We really did have a wonderful time together and it was so awesome to have quiet time with Tracy. This trip was all about resting and relaxing for her and I think that's exactly what she did.

Thank you for watching the video and I'm glad you liked the song. It really worked with the pictures I had of Tracy.

I agree with you that there is something unique with on-line relationships. I think there is someone about the written word that takes communication to a whole new level. That has to bring you closer to other people. Plus, I think that knowing we all share a common bond makes it easier for us to trust other people we meet in this forum.

I was a couple of updates behind, but am now caught up.

Wow and Cool for those great DISmeets! You got to meet Jenny and Michael, and then see Tracy, and then Mary, the girls, Brook, etc., etc., etc.!

Tracy looked great...that's so sad that she lost her battle, but I'm sure that she treasured being at DisneyWorld and spending some time with you guys.

Enjoyed your update. I remember reading Tracy's FB posts about that trip. She was so happy to be at Disney! I'm glad you all got to visit together.

Cynthia - your night in EPCOT looks like so much fun! And I was glad to see your pictures of Cafe Tangeirine. I don't think I've ever seen pictures of it and I've never gone in there. I was just telling Ed yesterday that I really want to go there this year to try one of the Schwarma platter.

Loving all the DIS meets y'all were having - how fun!

And I'm glad y'all got to see y'alls friend, Tracy, one last time at Disney. So sorry to hear that she passed not much later.

Can't wait to hear what y'all wore for the party that night!

Thanks! As far as the DISmeet - we were just really lucky to have that many DISers there at the same time and we were fortunate enough to have a day that everyone could be there. We did miss Anita and Marc because they left the day before.

I totally don't remember it being anyone's fault. I think we were on time - IF the boat had gone straight to the Contemporary. I still find the boat system at WL a little confusing.

The relief to not have to feel like she had to do that I know was huge and she was just really enjoying her trip and just "being". Tracy had "chicken legs" before she got sick as she called them and honestly, if you didn't know she was sick you would never have guessed it.

I agree - I do not think she looked sick at all, except that to me she looked like she had some muscle wasting of her arms and legs, which is not surprising at all considering the trouble she had with her chemo.

I was actually eyeing those up, but the lox, bagels, and cream cheese won! I would definitely head back there for breakfast. Such a winner in my book!

I was actually one of the people who wrote of how small the studio was. I still think it was a bit on the small size, but I think if you room with someone neat then its doable. I think you and I would be fine because I don't think we leave our stuff lying around. I really did like the new layout so much better than the old one.

I guess I just thought since we were the major planners we should have been the first ones there. I am a little anal like that, but really it totally didn't matter! It was a fun meet and I'm so glad everyone showed!

I was ready to do this update. I wanted to think about her again and relive those moments together. At the point I was so optimistic that she may pull it off and have a full recovery. Her surgery was scheduled for days after she returned home.

She did look really beautiful. A true inner peace. I can only thank Cynthia for having the mojo to pick that pillow out of the stacks!

I was really looking forward to meeting them. In fact, at one point Mary joked that I wasn't at all interested in meeting her, just her girls. So not true, but her girls are every bit as likable in person as they seem in K's TRs. And it was also great to meet Sheree's lovely girls because I have been reading about them for several years and they are adorable as well!

I did enjoy reading all her FB posts! I just regret that I left Epcot right before she texted me that she had her make-up done for their V&A dinner. I think that was my last night. I would have loved to run over there but I think I was already too far away. The picture she posted on FB that evening was amazing. She and Brielle looked like sisters!

Tracy had a wonderful time in Disney. Christine and Melissa saw to that. They planned all sorts of amazing things for her. They were both very, very close to her and I am sure they miss her terribly.

Thank you - It was emotional because its still hard for me to believe that Tracy's life expectancy was as short as it was. All that time with the chemo for h%((.

We had such a great DIS meet! It was really pretty perfect. I just wish it could have been a bit longer!

Hmm multi quotes don't seem to be working on internet explorer today. what gives?

anyway.


just an FYI, service dogs are trained to literally "go" on command -- so having a single place makes sense. The dogs will hold it in as long as possible (can you imagine having a service dog at work and having to worry about piles?) so if youtake them to a specific area & give them the "potty" command, Voila but that is not nearly as entertaining as Pat & Cynthia's photo!!!!

ME - my sister's podiatrist told her that wearing a shoe with a more flexible sole was much better for her plantar fascitis. She used to wear those sketchers rockers all the time and apparently they did more harm than good. so if you're wearing thickly soled shoes without flexibility at work, that may not be helping your PF.

Sorry that I can't quote you all the wonderful pictures you shared -- so I will just say you had a great two days. Cynthia's meet up at the Ditch & trip around the world, and then your breakfast & DISmeet with Tracy. What a fabulous fabulous morning.

That island was Discovery Island - one of our ferry drivers gave us some background on it when we were staying at FWL in '11. Here is the wikipedia info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discovery_Island_(Bay_Lake)

I cannot wait for the halloween party and the costumes!!!

I know I read all this last week but can't remember if I posted. So if I did, just chalk it off to my completely ding bat day I am having.

So glad that you got to have a memorable breakfast with your friend. I can tell that she was very special to you and what a perfect gift you got her.

What a great Dis meet! There was a lot of disers there.

Loved your seminar pictures and how neat that Cynthia actually made the mole sauce. It looked yummy!

Love the dog pictures! Too funny.

Can't wait to see what you were for the party.

All caught up, thanks for the links! I had to skip the chatting this time, was four updates behind.

Looks like a fun evening was had by all! Loved the chocolate sculptures, so cool.

Mary Ellen, the beach pictures are just marvelous.
