What a wonderful person she was.

She impacted so many of us here and she was family.

I am sad, but I feel honored to have been a part of her existence.

What a lady! What a class act! Everybody loved her, and she loved everybody back... unconditionally. ~ She will be missed.

I am so very sorry to hear of this. My deepest sympathies and all our thoughts and prayers go out for her family and friends. She was indeed a gentle soul. I will miss her.

This is what I was watching yesterday morning when cj left us.

She had a profound affect on many of us here at DC and she will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace my friend.

I didn't say anything in my initial post about my thoughts about kadesma because I was too emotional and didn't know what to say or how to say it. I've had a few hours to think and gotten some rest and feel more confident that my words will come more reasonably.

Ma was a great lady and had a heart bigger than I could imagine. She loved completely, especially her family. It was all too obvious that she took great joy in food and cooking and enveloping those around her table with the sights, smells and tastes of her efforts.

She was a rock and a soft place for me when Buck died in 2008. Even though she wasn't physically near, I always felt her sweet arms around me when I need them. We talked on the phone right after his death and continued to do that, off and on, to recent times.

What a joy she was to know and my life is richer for having had her in it.

I have such a heavy heart to hear this, as we were just talking here about our mushroom soups on Sunday and just a few hours later she was gone. She was truly a wonderful person and touched so many here at DC with her classic gentle and helpful nature.
Her signature on every post was "HEAVEN is Cade, Ethan,Carson, and Olivia,Alyssa,Gianna " Now her precious family has a very special angel. Rest easy dear one.

We've sent some flowers to CJs family on behalf of the DC family. I know they cannot really ease their hearts but at least they will know that there are many arms around her memory.
