Title: In Memory of Lisa Cammilleri
Post by: Andy Battaglia on March 23, 2007, 01:33:17 AM
Lisa's birthday was March 23. I'd like to post this old poem in memory of Lisa and all of our friends that have passed on. We really miss you, Lisa.



Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there. I did not die

By Mary Elizabeth Frye

Lisa, an unforgetable person, whose been touching my life. Thanks to Lisa and Andy, today am feeling confident and brave to face life with anything that come across. I was totally depressed b4 as i've no one whose thal to share my problems releated to thal etc. Now i fee v confident as i know my friends are here always for me in this website.

If she were here with us, she would be v happy to see family growing up. Its been v easy to discuss any matter on this site and response also prompt.

Lisa, u'll remain in our hearts forever.

Although I never got to communicate with Lisa, but I can feel her passion and dedication to Thals. in form of this site and it's owners Mr. Andy (Capt. Thal. Care) :) and Sister Danielle (Our Florence Nightingale) :biggrin who are continuing the legacy of Lisa and making this site the best place for patients to help each other.

Thank you, Lisa for everything that you have done.

Happy Birthday Lisa,

You gave me hope in my darkest moment, when this disease was foreign to me and I was searching for answers.  I had sent out millions of emails trying to get information and you reached out to me.  Thank you.
