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!

The radiation is to get rid of one of the tumors in her

femur that is causing her a lot of pain. It's been working. Unfortunately, the cancer is the kind that spreads and it has been spreading very quickly throughout her body. The chemo, which she may or may not go through with, depending on how far the cancer has affected her brain, is to allow her a bit more time to get things in order and enjoy a last Christmas with her children and grandchildren.

Take Care

Although I never shared a back and forth with you here on the DP, I look forward to meeting you one day in the great beyond. May you find all encompassing peace, happiness and love that covers you like a warm blanket on a cold morning.

From my faith tradition to you:

Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Thank you, jeff4paul.

Fonta and I talked about the Catholic faith last night. Your comment reminded me that I said I would send her a prayer to St. Joseph. She is a very spiritual person and prayers are so helpful.

A toast to you, Fonta!

May you be greeted with love, warmth and comfort. I didn't know you here but I'm sure I'll know you when I cross over as well. Have an amazing journey to the next chapter!

Bon Voyage Fonta!

For your Ultimate Journey!

(Translation)
You have come to the seashore.
You haven't looked
for the wise or the rich.
You only want me to follow You

Lord, Your eyes have looked at me.
Smiling You have called my name.
In the sand I have abandoned my boat.
Together with You I will search for another sea.

You know well what I have,
In my boat
there is not gold nor treasure.
Just nets and my hard work.

Lord, Your eyes have looked at me .
Smiling You have called my name.
In the sand I have abandoned my boat
Together with You I will search for another sea.

You need my hands.
My weariness
so that others may rest.
Love that wants to continue loving

Lord, Your eyes have looked at me.
Smiling You have called my name.
In the sand I have abandoned my boat.
Together with You I will search for another sea

May all the love of this world be

blessed upon you. May these chemicals be blessed as they were with my wife. I wish this disease upon no one. All choices are hard but in this life we must make our own. More than anything , Fonta, I wish you peace,love and a safe journey. We all must return home when the time is right. May YOU decide when that time may come. Bless you my friend.

My thoughts and dreams are with you.

Dearest Fonta

As you prepare to know TRUE liberty, TRUE joy, and TRUE love, I wish you a peaceful and joyous journey.

Those of us still sitting in the station awaiting our train home will rejoice in your life and your transition to peace, but will miss your presence here with us.

Peace, love and joy are all that exist where you are going. Go well, my friend and know you made a difference.

Will be rewarded for courage

The ancestors always reward for courage in the face of what may come. No more important of an honor can be received.
