Good Bye Ma

Warm, caring and thoughtful. CJ was, in her own quiet way, the most creative cook here.

I'll miss you.

Dear Ma, I am glad you are no longer suffering and are where you want to be. I will miss you and thank you for being part of my life.

Love,
Your gal
I am crying but I see she is no longer suffering. I didn't know she was suffering.

I'll never forget her and her kindness to me. I'm going to save all her posts to me on a file of my computer.

She was a wonderful cook and a very precious soul.

Oh, this hurts very much.

Her grace and kindness always shined brightly through everything she said here; a beautiful example for everyone. We were all blessed to have known her.

My thoughts and prayers are with all who love her. She was always kind and I always got the impression of a smile shining through her posts. I will miss her.

Thank you Ma for all the wisdom, comfort, and deliciousness you shared with all of us. I appreciated knowing if I needed a good recipe that would appeal to the masses, I could just search the posts for your name and find just the right dish. You will truly be missed by so many for so many reasons.

This is such sad news.......Every time I would read one of CJ's posts, I immediately felt the warmth and kindness. I perceived a strong woman full of grace and wisdom. Some may think me odd, but each of you here has a "voice" in my head when I read your posts, the voice that belonged to "Kadesma" was soft, soothing and maternal. I will miss that voice and the sweet soul that went with it. Good bye dear CJ.

I'm typing through tears. My heart goes out to her family and to those who knew her better than I. Kades sent me notes of encouragement during my first stop here at DC. I enjoyed reading her posts once I returned. Now her grandbabies have a very special guardian angel looking watch over them. Godspeed CJ. We'll miss ya.

Yes! I also saw many smiles. You are so very right. This is how I will always remember her; so many smiles in her posts.

With love,

So sad to hear this. My prayers go out to the family and may her soul be at rest.
