I did not 'know' Care', but is it obvious that she has left a legacy of compassion, education and friendship.  Peace and blessings to you and her family.

I know all of my past friends and co-board members were wondering if I knew of Care's passing.  Well, yes I did know, however the news hit me a lot harder than I thought it ever would. 

Care - we worked together on chats, SJS world business, and everything you needed me to tackle for almost 5 yrs  I have missed you and will miss you dearly. 

My thoughts and prayers have been with your family and friends although I have been absent from here for a long time 

For those of you who did not know Care,  you missed the privilege of knowing a fantastic person. 

Spring, I can't imagine how it hit you, but my deepest sympathy's. 

For almost 5 yrs, I had the wonderful honor of working with Care and all those who were ask to help out on this fabulous site.  I cherish every moment and all those I worked with.  Thank you.

I pray that this will be an everlasting memorial to Care for all the love and caring she put into it. 

Go with God Care and give Sally a hug for me.  I know she is beside herself having you again. 

Hugs, love and God Bless always,

I hadnt been on the site for a very long time - but i am very saddened to read the loss of care.

I was lonely, scared and overwhelmed when i was diagnosed in 2003 until i came across this site, it was a comfort and reasurrance that i was not alone, and only did i find this site due to care and spring.

God bless care and may you rest in peace and you will be remembered by so very many.

I haven't been on in a very long time, but it seems that the last time I was, Billie was driving up to the Mayo Clinic (or somewhere like that) to see if they could resolve her health issues.  I didn't I know that she was a co-founder of the site, but it doesn't surprise me.  I want to thank Billie and everyone on Sjogrens World for taking the time to share their knowledge, wisdom, stories, compassion, humor and love! It's a Godsend!

My condolences to Billie's friends and family.

Spring, I am new here so this thread is old for "me." STILL that matters not. What matters is that we all apreciate who she was, and how wonderful everyone says she was. And if not ofr her, we would not ever have one another. SO thank you...
I never knew you Care....but thank you for bringing together people that truly need one another.
God Bless you and may you rest in peace, free from pain:):) I have a feeling you are one of the angels!

It is just a thought, But I was wondering if there was some kind of memorial or anything that we could do honoring Care's contributions?  I have no idea's as I do not live close, nor did I have a chance of meeting her.

It just seems fitting to me, that with everything see offered, to have something done in her memory. 
I could be out of line here and if I am, I am sorry.  I just understand that she was a great woman and I want her to be honored in a fitting way.

Is this something we could think about or possibly it has already been done. OR is there a place we can make a contribution. Like a scholarship fund or something. I can't do much, but it we all had something it could add up. ;D   If so, please let us know .
