Sad news Guys...We lost our dear friend "Lucy"
« 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.

That is so tragic. She was very helpful here and a friend to everyone. Gurs, my heart goes out to you as you mourn this loss. May God Bless you both and may He grant her family peace and strength to get through this.

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.
