Two Years - Two years come Monday. The memories are already not as clear as they used to be, which fills me with even more sadness. :(

You know, it was one year since my friend's brother died a few weeks ago, too. :|

I looked at my calender early in the week and noticed that the anniversary was coming up. It fills with sadness, partially. So many memories have been flooding my mind. I just can't believe that it's been two years. Two. Whole. Years.

On the other hand, I feel so much joy in the fact that she is worshiping the Savior with the Heavenly Hosts, even at this moment. It makes me shiver.

I know what you mean, Dance. It is hard to believe it has been two years now.
It is difficult to describe my thoughts about the whole thing, but it does leave a heavy weight on my chest and I think about her often.
However, her passing has brought so much more meaning to this board and closeness, which is a blessing.

Nor have I. It is a tiny bit too real. I agree with previous sentiments about two years seeming like not-so-long-ago. It feels more distant now, but it is so easy to remember 26 March 2011 [the 26th being the day we found out]. We have, as a board, 'grown-up' a lot. Looking through my posts, it is not difficult to encounter her posts, but it is also not difficult to regard how immature I was and still am. Although this happened two years ago, I do not think we are done learning from the experience. To honest, it is often difficult to log-on. There is the constant dread of 'who's next?' For all I know it could be me or it might not be sudden, but with the time we have, should we still try to build these friendships? Is what I struggle with when I come back here.

Thank you for this thought.

I don't know if I should really post here or not, but I felt like I should say something..

I never knew SnC. As most of you know I'm still pretty new here. However, I remember visiting ToO last year around this time as a guest, and seeing this. All of this. Her story, the reactions, the friendship. It touched me. Im so amazed by what one person could do.. As far as I've seen, SnC was just that. Strong in Christ. She was a friend to all, and tried to be there for all. It was nice to see, and really, I found myself admiring her even in those few posts. Everyone loved her, because she loved everyone. She loved everyone because she loved God. And she loved God, because she knew God first loved her. So, when she was gone.. I know just by guessing. It hurt. You had become close with someone who really dared to make a difference. So, when that someone was gone, you had nothing left to hold onto, except that said difference.And even thogh it's hard, think about that difference. Remember that difference. Dare to follow that difference. You know why? She made a difference, because she tried to bring WWJD into life. Dare to follow in her footsteps, because she followed in Christ's footsteps.

I know it's hard to believe when someone you love passes. Sometimes you'll want to talk to them, or tell them the amazing news that just happened to you. And then..They won't be there.. But, there's also the hope of believing. That's the joy of being a Christian.. This wasn't a goodbye..Just a see you later. You know, while we're down here in this dark, painful, crazy world.. I bet she's up there. With David and Joseph. With Abraham and Moses. With the disciples. With all our dear friends and family members. And, most importantly, with Jesus Christ, in which she is strong. No more pain or tears. No more sorrow or suffering. Just eternal light and joy forever.

And, I bet she's looking down on us right now, with a smile on her face saying, 'Can't wait for you guys to get here. I love and miss you. See you soon.'

=)

Why do you want to? You didn't even know her.

Because some people have seen the impact that SNC had on this board and would like to pay homage to that. Admittedly, people who never spent time here with SNC don't have a full appreciation for her legacy here, and it's understandable if you feel that way.

(As a preface to this post, I should probably mention that even though I never knew SNC through the ToO, I knew her on another forum and became very close with her.)

shnoodlec, I have to say that I'm somewhat confused as to why you want to create a topic about this, and I think that a lot of other people may be as well. As Dan said, it doesn't seem like you really knew her. This is still a very sensitive subject for a lot of people, and so to see people who seem to want "in" on it is honestly confusing and a little hurtful.

Obviously, I don't know your intent, and if you truly just wanted to create a topic because you felt nobody else would, and you wanted to keep her memory alive, then I applaud you. It's nice to see that SNC is still influencing people all these years later, but it may simply be best to let somebody who knew her create a topic like that.

It might be better to let one of her friends start it, just because it is still sensitive and it's a way we can remember her extra. But.
I appreciate your willingness and you guys wanting to help remember her...even though you may not have known her that well or at all. Thank you so, so much. And I mean it. :) It is just a really hard time for a lot of us still. Actually, if you would be willing to pray especially this month for friends and especially her family, that would be such a blessing. Either way, thank you for understanding. :)

I think that you, The Kings Daughter, should be the one, because you've made all of the yearly topics.

^ That she is. :)

I can do that. Unless anyone else has any thoughts? I'll plan to do it tomorrow (one week mark).

Edit: Also, apparently I have trouble with math this week. *facepalm* Ten day mark.
