I think our Beth is correct in these feelings. I would feel the same way.

Kadesma loved all of us. I've looked back at her posts, and I have seen this. But I did see how happy she was always for our accomplishments, and how happy she was for you, Beth, for to see the beginning of your new home. A home is a very special place, Beth, as you see. Kadesma had this gift for to see into our hearts and she knew how special your new home is.

She made her home (from what I understand) a warm and welcoming place with good food, laughter, and very much love. Her gift to you is part of her legacy, which was so very rich with love. She has passed a part of herself to you, Beth.

I'm so very, very happy for you. And I'm also so very grateful that you have this. Now you have something which is tangible to remind you of a very, very great lady who will be forever in all of our hearts and especially yours.

With love to you, Beth,
~Cat

At home and up early this morning Kadesma came into my mind.
Turned on DC and read this very sad news.
What a kind sweet brilliant with sound advice lady CJ was.
Last I spoke with her on the phone, she was kind and gentle as always.
I will never forget the incredible advice she always offered me.
So kind, so sweet, so gentle, heaven is now filled with one of the best.
RIP dear lady.

I was just thinking about her yesterday, how much we miss her here at DC and in this world. She was one of a kind

I've not been here in quite a whilel and only learned of CJ's passing last week. She was truly everything that all of you have posted. She gave me many tips and recipes that I've used over and over. The last message I got from her was a recipe she was sending when she finished dialysis. She certainly left wonderful memories for all of us.

when kads passed, a few people here contacted me to let me know (which i greatly appreciated). my heart sunk. i couldn't share my grief with anyone, so i just said goodbye to her from my heart to heaven where she undoubtedly smiles down at us since that day

cj was the class of this site. it's a rare thing to know a person who has such a pure and gentle heart. who held malice for no one but genuine love and kindness for everyone. she set an example that we can only hope to follow.

god bless and keep you, kads, until we meet again.

I understand from Cat that she was very sweet to her, and she was loving and kind, and a great cook.

Cat took with her in her recipe book for her new boat, a bunch of recipes from here, and several were from Kadesma. Cat grieved at her passing; she cried.

I wish I had known her as all of you do. Cat left me her notebook about all her friends here and on other sites, and she had written this about Kadesma:

"I wish I could bring her back. I wish I could have spoken to her of her recipes and of her life. She was so very kind and so very nice. I suppose there were perhaps a need for another angel in Heaven, and so the Lord received the one He needed. I was just not for this to happen. If there is the cooking in Heaven, she is the head chef of this."

Since Cat gave me her notebook, and I see this now, I thought it appropriate to share what she wrote. She gave me permission to use it in any way I felt necessary.

I hunted up a lot of Kadesma's posts and read them. She was truly wonderful, and so sorely missed.

I wish I had joined here long ago when Cat suggested it.

Thanks for sharing that CL. I know many of us think of Kades often, and of Cat too. What a sweet and caring young woman she is.
I wish you'd tell Cat to check in with us. I hear they have computers in Romania.

I have talked with CL often and she has told me that it is almost impossible to use the computers to other continents. It can take hours to get a connection. She often talks to Cat by phone instead. Unfortunately, Romania is not one of the most up to date countries.

You mean to other countries, right, Addie? We Skype with one of our former exchange students in Germany regularly and she has no trouble getting a connection.

Btw, considering this article, I'm surprised Cat has trouble getting an Internet connection. Her parents seem rather wealthy. http://foxnomad.com/2012/03/15/why-i...-so-damn-fast/
