Crossing Over: Join Me in a Toast to DPer, Fonta, on Her Journey Home

Old timers will remember my dear friend, fonta, but relative newbies may not be too familiar with her, since she hasn't been able to post or comment here much lately. Please click on her profile and take a moment and get to know her or get reacquainted: http://www.dailypaul.com/user/406

We can all be a part of her ultimate journey by cyber walking a little bit of the way with her, not with lamenting but, with love and joy for her “graduating”, as she calls the dying process.

In her own words to me:

“I have not written because of a very rough couple of days trying to adjust morphine and break through pain pills ...oxycodone. The doctors are trying to give me the best possible combination between Tuesday when I finish radiation and the 14th when I start or may start chemo. It is complex what I am doing and why. I was fascinated by the alternative treatments thread, but...it is way too late for me. In a way it is miraculous that I am still kicking. It [the cancer] is everywhere and very fast moving. They are trying at this point to impact not my dying, but the way I die.”

We can all walk with her by having an “impact” on her journey home. I know she will be reading our good wishes and may even comment or have a friend or family member comment to us for her. Fonta is a beautiful, deeply spiritual soul and is looking forward to being reunited with her loved ones who have journeyed before, while giving love and wisdom to her children and young grandchildren to prepare them for what is to come. I'm sure this is what fonta would want say to everyone right now:

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, kindly raise your cyber glasses in a toast to fonta! May God continue to bless you on your journey and beyond, dear friend and Patriot!

Just officially toasted

Toasted for you! :)

Can you eat this?

red onion (only 1/3 part - all other parts equal)
pepper (to your liking)
olive oil
and some super special wine
Green onion
bacon (hehe!!! - yum)

If you take the first three or four ingredients you could have a decent nutrient based diet with some calories (I love avacado! Use more if you need the calories) especially if you add some cashews.

It's a feast!

Whatever makes you feel good.

If I was given my sentence I would want to be with loved ones and also have a good time. That doesn't mean shooting dope, but maybe some super thick Sam the butcher style bacon from the Brady Bunch, hehe. Yum. I do know one person who cheated death, well actually two. Of course the ex who was found dead on a park bench, but the one that stood out had a terminal case of cancer. She was given 6 months at best to live. Now is 16 years later.

When our time comes we heed it's beckoning call. Either a miracle will occur of one kind or a miracle will occur of another. Either one is wonderful and liberating.

Take care and big hugs.

I LOVE this F-ing place!

Imagine a whole group of people, each pouring out their unconditional LOVE to a fellow human-being/sister/friend in pain. Even though most of us will never meet, are we each taking away a tiny piece of this pain with our thoughts, prayers, tears and love? I hope so.

Yep, we are.

Believe it, carlsbaddj. Believe it! Things are starting to happen now.

my heart flares in this moment for you my brethren, in this sad tale i hear, where words cannot do justice, i cannot say or do anything to give you more time, all i can do, and damn the injustice of that, is imagine a time, somewhere, somehow....perhaps.....the journey goes on........i hope your journey goes on

Can you smell a faint trace of hope in the air?

Good news will be coming soon from fonta. PLEASE keep up the positive comments and prayers! They're working!!!! We're getting through! Don't stop!

To Fonta,

May God bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand.


May your transition to liberty be as pain free and happy as possible. Embrace it.



I never met you or many of the people on here and I just want to say thank you for your fight even as your days may come to a close. My grandmother just passed a few weeks ago and it was devastating to our family to not be able to say our goodbyes. I'm not sure if you're a "religious" person but I am and will pray for you and your family. Grace and peace to you friend. One of my favorites:

Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Cheers to you My Dear Fonta. Thank you. LOVE U.

I know you are in pain and I know you must be scared. I wish I could fix that for you but we all so know this is your journey you must take.

My mother is fighting cancer as we speak and I always tell her, " mom, you're about to climb Everest . Only you will reach the summit. We will be by your side as your Sherpas the entire way carrying your tears, taking you to your appointments, sitting by your side so you are never alone, holding your head up when your sick and offering uplifting words. That's what Sherpas do...carry your stuff. But as I said to Mom Fonta and I will say to you. It is only you that will reach the summit, and when you do the struggle will be over. It will be beautiful.

I never met you but I love you, you are me and you are everyone here. We will all make this journey, everyone of us.
Thank you for giving us the gift of opening yourself to us here on the DP.

"I never met you but I love you, you are me and..."

Beautiful sentiment, dexterszyd. We can thank you for "the gift of opening yourself to us" as well.

Sorry to hear about your mother's trials. Been where you are a few times myself. Just know you are not alone and your friends, brothers and sisters here on DP are your Sherpas, too. Should things get rough, we are here to help http://www.dailypaul.com/287333/caregivers-helping-caregivers

Love ya, Dex!

I have seen...

And I looked up and I saw the army of Heaven's Angels... They were terrible in their massive bodies, faces like lightning, eyes like flaming torches, arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and voices like the sound of a multitude.

Their feet of bronze and their powerful wings covering them lest the blinding light that burned within could incinerate me, as if to protect me from the intensity.
Standing twelve feet tall they were forming for a procession.
An important journey onward to the eternal Kingdom of Glory.
Their energy and their presence caused my knees to quiver as they prepared to suddenly launch Heavenward.
Then suddenly in an explosion of motion full of fury they carried the Lord's Servant home as the sound of their voices penetrated my entire being saying "Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of His Saints!"
And I felt my feet begin to lift from the floor as if I were being pulled into the vacuum that followed as their massive battalion moved as one giant force pulling dust and debris into the vortex.

Will Ya Go, Oh Lassie, Go

..And We'll All go together___
To pick wild mountain thyme,
All around the bloomin' heather,
Will ya go, Oh Lassie go_____

Dear Fonta,
Thank you for the grace and wisdom you shared with me and many others here and elsewhere, sometimes during times that were not at all easy (you know what I speak of)...yet you sought to comfort, not to be comforted, and your selflessness was God-given, shared with us.
Thank You and God Bless You,

Glancing through pages of comments and posts, Fonta seems like an intelligent, caring, positive, respectful and down to earth person. Those qualities seemed to permeate all her posts and comments.

She shared this amazing song I never heard before. It's so good. And then there was this tear jerker.

Judging from what I've seen, those who know her personally are undoubtedly very lucky. I certainly wish I had the chance to myself.

The best of luck, Cheers.

An amazing woman, isn't she?

I'm glad you took the time to check out fonta's profile and found those great posts. Yes, I am very fortunate to be called her "friend". Fonta has contributed a lot to my spiritual growth over this past year. It's like every fiber of her being is on a spiritual plane. What a beautiful soul she is!

Thank you for giving links to a couple of her posts. They really are outstanding.

Nonna -

Thank you very much for the update. Fonta has definitely left her mark here in many POSITIVE ways & it WILL be the way she will be remembered by many here.

Fonta: Thoughts & prayers are with you. Know that you'll certainly be missed & that we'll all meet again under much better circumstances other than what has brought us all together here at the DP. God Bless.

Dearest Fonta...

do me a favor and read Acts 16:30-31.

Believe...that's all you must do.

I am praying for you my fellow DP friend.

I believe there are powers we emanate in the afterlife from the conscious knowledge we gathered and stored in our DNA throughout our lives. I hope Fonta gets a chance to spread the message in the heaves as she has done on Earth.

Terms of Endearment.

Fonta, you will be missed!

My prayers go with you in your journey. May your crossing be peaceful.
