We have belonged to a journal group for many years now- we joined the same year we met the Collective.
There we met someone named Gloria. She was a special person, full of life of energy. She was a recovering addict. Over 20 years sobriety. She was and is an inspiration to us. She helped us at a time when things were bad for us, helped us to stay sober. She knew of us as they all on that group did and she accepted it. She talked to many of us and we exchanged a journal with her through the mail.
Earlier this summer she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Her daughters were nice enough to keep everyone who knew her online updated with her condition. In August she passed.
Today would have been her birthday and we miss her. And we just wanted to share that with our friends.
