It was only this past September that Eve reminded all of us that, "At one time it was my greatest wish to have it removed," speaking about her ICD.

Now, it is no longer at issue.

It is times like this that I wish I had paid better attention in my youth to the priests, brothers and nuns who tried so desperately to impart a greater functional understanding of Latin upon me. I was regrettably unfazed. As a young man, I attended a University which is noted for it's predominant Jewish student body. With regret, only a small amount of the Yiddish rubbed off.

I speak of both those languages at times like this because both Latin and Yiddish, are so much better at conveying the extreme degree of a given concept. It is moments like this, where as articulate as I like to think that I am, I find most of the words I have at my command in the English language, are wholly inadequate when attempting to describe the heaviness in my heart this evening. Both Latin and Yiddish would do a much better job at describing our loss as being so profound.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
Mary Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

RIP Eve
Below is a quote from Eve in my introduction thread, I always loved her outlook on life and the picture of her on the back of the motorcycle when ever I read this it reminds me of Eve."Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW-- What a Ride!"
going to miss her.

Thank you Helen.

I don't know much about Eve, yet we did correspond and swap our books which I shall now read with even more emotion. I do know that rather than think upon Eve dying, I want to think about how she chose to live. She was such a remarkable woman, always curious. It's that curiosity that took her to places I can only dream of and made her the person she was. I think she only ever gave in her life...

Yes, she has physically left us but I know that no-one can truly die if they are remembered in the hearts and minds of others. Eve -I love you, I miss you and I will see you on the other side.

There are some people you meet in life who will remain with you until the day you die. Eve was that, to a goodly amount of people. Her leaving is sad, but I will always have to smile when I think of her, and that is a good memory.

The Eulogy

Say not who I knew nor what I did --
Nor what I earned nor where I lived --
Not what I had nor words I’d twist..
Say only that, “She will be missed.”

Eve will be missed.

Helen,

Thank you so much for letting us know..... Eve, my lovely lady, your star will continue to shine brightly in all the lives you have entered. Here, you will never be forgotten.... a very very sad day indeed. I really don't have any other words except to ask that you keep watching over us all...

You know those moments when you hear news and you go blank and numb? Well that is what happened to me when I found out the news. I sat and cried. Shared the news with my husband and tried to convey the feelings which I had for an individual whom I have NEVER met in true life. But Eve was a part of my life. The new life I entered into on July 23, 2009. It is a members only club and I was glad to have Eve in my corner. She cheered me on so many times. I will never EVER forget her. She truly touched many, many lives.

I am saddened and encouraged. I want to be more like our Eve everyday. Happy till the end and encouraging others along the way, no matter what. Eve...you will forever live in this girl's heart. Someone says a star went dark, I think a star went VERY bright. My take.

Carry on Eve!
