Title: Sad news Guys...We lost our dear friend "Lucy"
Post by: gurs on April 28, 2013, 10:39:25 AM
My heart is so saddend and Im in shock. Seems our dear friend "Lucy" (eyeamdry) passed away from Pulmonary Fibrosis. She was my FB friend, as I started seeing the postings this morning. She is also a Michigander, and I referred her to our Rheumy, and met up with her once there around 5 years ago. I found out through her cousin today that she had PF..but I dont know any details etc.

I know we will feel her loss tremendously, as her great advice and friendship were invaluable to many of us. She had many health obstacles she fought and overcame, she was truly a warrior. My prayers to her family.

What a terrible disease.  I hope her last days were peaceful and she didn't suffer much.  As a newcomer I looked forward to her wise posts and will miss them.  So sorry for her family and loved ones.

Thank you for letting everybody know. I know from her posts that she did not expect to have more than 5 years left but had no idea she was going to go so quickly. Sad news indeed.

Thoughts with her family and friends.

So sorry to learn of this. Lucy was always so honest about her struggles with this disease, I think because she wanted to help make others aware. I know she helped me.  Prayers being said for her and her family and friends.

Thanks Gursie for letting us know.  Keeping you in my prayers.

I am in shock right now, she just made the discovery and started her treatment. She was just posting her day to day progress. I'm sorry guys, I just am really surprised.
  My heart goes out to her family, her husband. I will miss her so much. I am grateful to have gotten to know her on this board. She will be missed. CK

Oh my goodness, I have been wondering where she has been. She and I PM a lot and I had been wondering if the Imuran she started on had been making her sick. She hasn't been diagnosed with PF for very long but it was bad for her these past 5 months or so. She had such a crazy sense of humor that kept us all on our toes. Years ago I had lived in Michigan about 40 miles from where she lived and she would also keep me up to date on the Michigan weather. I will miss her so, so much. My sympathy to her husband and daughter. What a shock. Irish

I'm so shocked to read that our 'popsicle queen' has passed, but relieved she is no longer so unwell.

God bless Lucy and her hubby, daugher and grandpup.

She will be sorely missed.

Lucy was so happy to even to find those Oxi-glasses, for when she was out and about...her strength helped and will continue to help many. Oh dear, this is so sad.

Please convey my sympathy to her family.

Post by: Bucky on April 28, 2013, 02:29:49 PM
I was saddened to see this post today -  :'(  I know Lucy has been having a difficult time with her breathing and walking and even recently canceled her cruise and vacation she had planned because she just wasn't feeling up to it.

I will miss her posts and her humor and friendship.

On this forum, even though most of us have never met in person, we form a special friendship/bond with each other as we deal with the day-to-day challenges of living with Sjgoren's.  We genuinely feel sad when a friend we've never met is sick, suffering, or passes away.

I'll never forget the story Lucy told of some ugly green couch (or was it a chair?) she got from a relative.  I think she actually did end up liking it.   ;)

Lucy often talked about her husband, only daughter, and her grandpup.  My sympathy to the family.

I also know among our membership, some of us are closer than others - a sisterhood or brotherhood connection.  Gursie and Irish, I know Lucy was a special friend to you both - my sympathies to you both as you grieve the loss of your (our) dear friend, Lucy.

If anyone ever plays the lottery, or goes to the casino - play something for Lucy - she loved her casino!   :)

Rest in Peace, our dear Lucy . . . I will miss your friendship here on the forum.

Bucky

This is such terrible news! Lucy was one of the first people I "met" in the Sjogren's online community. And it wasn't even the Sjogren's World, it was on the Dry Eye Zone forum, when I was struggling and didn't even know I had Sjogren's. She was such a big supporter. We'll miss her. I just can't believe it.

I too am in shock and am heartbroken at this news.  Lucy just celebrated her 50th wedding Anniversary and this was not something that she was expecting..

I do not know any details..but I will tell you this..Lucy was a fighter..she had overcome many obstacles and battles..She would want us to continue to cheer each other on and fight a stronger fight..spread the awareness that Sjogren's can attack organs.

 Lucy may have not won this battle, but she never lost! 

My biggest regret is leaving here....I feel that I let her down, and maybe I have let you all down...My apologies.

  I am going to try and return as often as I can.  I really do love all you guys and wish you all well..You gotta do this for Lucy and Kamie...Stay Strong..square your shoulders up and stick those chests out..now raise that chin..and be thankful for knowing such wonderful souls...and just because they have crossed into a better place , it does not mean any of us are going there anytime soon...  I am sticking around for a long time! 

We can do this.....Positive Attitude, Strong Wills and Faith!       <3   ~sass~

I don't post often.  But I come here at the end of the day for several years now.  I am shocked of her passing even though I had been following her posts on her latest health issues, I really didn't expect to hear this sad news.

Irish, Gurs and her many other Sjogrens Buddies my heart goes out to you. My thoughtsare also with her hubby, daughter and grandpup.  Feeels like just Yesterday she was sharing her babysitting adventure with her grandpup..

She will be deeply missed by many, myself included.

I remember her talking of the loss of her sister to colon cancer and tonight I will think of her being reunited with her..

Rest In Peace Lucy, I will miss your posts and knowledge

Oh, Lucy.  I will miss you so much.  You were one funny and feisty lady.   The big ugly green couch,  adventures with your grand dog,  and even the tales of your newly aquired oxygen hose....you really knew how to tell a story.

Thank you Gursie, for letting us know.

Oh my gosh I just can't believe this!  Bless her kind soul and may she rest in peace with the angels.  Lucy helped me so much when I was first diagnosed and didn't know what was going on!  Her original rheumy, whom she loved dearly. ended up here in AZ and I was hoping to be able to see Dr. Sarkar one day and to report back to Lucy.  She was so positive and full of information which she openly shared with everyone.  My heart goes out to her family and friends.  You will be so missed on this forum.  RIP dear lady xxoo

I was also so shocked and saddened to hear of Lucy's passing. Our dear popsicle queen, our funny lady who had kind words for all.

I loved her posts; they were straightforward, funny, informative, and so helpful. I think she was one of the first people who responded to my very long post when I found the wonderful people here.
I will miss her.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, daughter and grandpup. :)

I like your post, Irish, when you say she's now free to fly! I wonder if she's found a little casino on the way...

I just read this thread about Lucy's passing this morning and I'm still in quite a bit of shock over this very sad news.

Lucy was a wonderful contributor on this forum and I personally read with interest many of her posts, including those about severe eye dryness and about which treatments were possible.  I found them very informative.  Lucy was very generous with her knowledge and so willing to share with others her experiences and successes with Sjogren's disease.  This terrible disease is so much more than a bit of dry eyes and dry mouth.

May our dear Lucy rest in peace and my heart breaks for her family and loved ones.

I guess Lucy was laid to rest yesterday..god bless her soul. I know she will continue to be the true champion and fighter she was.
Maybe she can send us special help??

I guess from what I understand, she was having trouble breathing, went to ER and had pneumonia, and died just a few
days later...last sunday morning.
