Dear friends. There comes a time when life as we know it must end it has come for me. I am in serenity house  it's a lovely place to. Spend my last days  beautiful room with sliding glass doors overlooking. Bird feeders French doors into small living room for family to sleep  meals, anything I want no visiting hours.  Visitors anytime. A peaceful place with loving workers. I'm happy here I am texting this post.   Hard for me to do I just wanted to tell you all what you mean to me. Love comes along in our lives and I feel so lucky to have all of you so, good bye for now. Someday we will meet again.     Balisha. Xoxo

  1. Dear dear Balisha,
    Wish I was near
    could hold your hand
    pray with you.
    I cannot
    but you do not leave my thoughts
    as you have made a deep impression
    on my heart. Love, Ernestine

  2. I'm so glad to know that you have found a place of comfort. I've heard it said somewhere that Heaven's a fair blue stretch of sky and earth's just a dusty road. I know that you will find that blue stretch of sky on your journey and I'll look for you when I get there someday too. Goodbye dear Balisha. Blessings to you and your family. ~ Diane

  6. Balisha, I have tears for you right now, but I should be embracing you and celebrating your life and all you have meant! You may think this is only blogging, only virtual friendships across the states or world, but I want you to know that YOU have been my friend. A true friend. You have brought me light, offered me support when I needed it most, and have touched my heart. It is so hard to say this, but as you pass from this world to the next, know that you have made a difference in this world, you have touched others, you have been grace and love and compassion to so many. You have been a smile to me. And I hope I can hold your hand now and say so long, see you again someday, my friend. xoxoxo Monica

I speak for do many, we love you...pray for you and most of all pray for your peace this time ...at least me. I feel so guilty that I am in Illinois and I never made a point of being a true, flesh and blood friend to you., instead of "just another blogger.,your biggest Illinois blog friend (and more).

  22. I am here today for the first time. Monica of Prince Snow Farm asked me if I followed you and now, I feel like I was cheated by just meeting you today. I read backwards a bit and admire your calm and strength. I wish you and your family well as you end this chapter and book.

  25. I have tried to put the message below on my wife Patricia Cerasa's blog --- Simply Balishia to no avail. below is the comment that I wanted to enter on her blog. At least some of her blogger friends and Pat can read it here on Facebook.
    I do not know how to use this comment part of the blog but I am going to try to write my thoughts and hope it makes it to the blog. I am the husband of Balisha which is the name I gave her long ago. I want to thank all of you that have taken the time to comment through the years on her poems and writings. She is such an accomplished writer of words and in fact I have never known her equal. To me she is a professional in capturing thoughts in words. My wife Pat has given many, many people pleasure and more importantly, Inspiration over the years by the thoughts she wrote down and the answers she has written to so many of her blogger friends. She loved all of you and derived so much pleasure in being in contact with all of you daily.
    Thank you all again for all for all of your kind comments. God bless you all! --- Pat's husband Joe C.

    1. Joe, it has been an honor to know Balisha. She has been an encourager, someone with similar hobbies, and a kind soul. Thanks for sharing parts of your life with us, I am moved beyond words.

    2. Dear Joe, I have walked in your shoes with my Frank. The path is the roughest I have ever traveled. I am so sorry. She was so happy with you. You gave one another a wonderful life..took care of one another...accepted one another's families so beautifully. I have admired you both. My heart goes out to you and yours..
      Please give her a little hug and a kiss for me? Tell her "thank you" for being in my life. We lost our children, Sandy and tim within just weeks of each other. Now this.
      Give her my love..thank you for communicating with us...it helps..so much.

    3. Dear Joe ~ I hope you see this message. I have not only been praying for Balisha, but for you, too. I see that Mona (above) wrote than she lost her child within weeks of yours...well, I lost a child, too. My oldest - Philip - in 2009. He was 21. I don't remember how we found out about each other having lost a child, but Balisha gave me some wonderful words of comfort. May God bless you and your family.

  26. You have given Pat such a happy life, Joe. We all feel that we know you too, from the posts she has written about you and the life you and your families shared. Pat has brought so much inspiration to all of us who have "known" her these many years. God is there with you all, keeping you all safely in the palm of His hand. Love to you--Judy

  27. What a wonderful family you are. Pat has given me so much joy and that will be with me always. She has touched many lives and given so much love and caring to others. Those touches and friendship she has shown never go away. Pat has made many lives better.
