Message 1473898 - Posted: 7 Feb 2014, 21:01:27 UTC

Hi everyone

This is going to be hard to write and I'm not sure where to start.

My mom's name was Shannon but everybody here knew her as Mackenzie or Kenzie. I have to tell you that my mom died on January 12. She had got stomache cancer in January last year. At first the treatments seemed to go good but then in June it was in her pancreas and then it was in her liver. In November it was in her brain and then she and the doctor decided not to do any more treatment and she went into palative care on December 2.

She talked a lot about this place and she had asked me to start up her account and contact you and tell you what happened. It took me awhile to figure out how to make the account here work. Sorry for taking so long.

Not sure what else to say but I'll check the account every day for the next while and try to answer any questions u might have.

Oh my God. I'm so sorry to hear that Allie. My deepest condolences to you and others who were close to Kenzie (Shannon).

My thoughts are with you in this hard times.

I'm very sad to hear about this news. "KenzieB" was a former Volunteer Moderator and was an excellent member of our team. She will be greatly missed.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us Allie. Your mom was a valued member of our forums, and the loss will be great. Take care and know that our thoughts are with you.

Allie,

Thank you so much for having the courage to let us all know what happened to Kenzie. Some of us knew for a while that there was something very wrong, but of course we didn't know what it was. She was a lovely person and will always be remembered with much affection, and greatly missed.

I'm so incredibly sad, and surprised! Allie, my very deepest condolences to you and your family. It appears that her other friend that you won't be hearing from, because John Clark passed not long ago last November 10th. She's in some fine company.

KenzieB was a special part of all of us. She was one of the strongest, and most private person I've ever known. I don't know a single person that knew her real name, including myself. Heck... I never even knew she had a daughter!

She'd never back down from anyone. And no one messed with our KenzieB, without knowing she'd be right in their face about it. She's in a class of her own.

I'm still in shock, and so sad that it happened. :-(

Thank you from all of us for delivering this sad message. I think we can speak for everyone that we'd love to have you stay with us here.

Allie, I got that awful knot-squeeze in my stomach while reading this. She was one fine person who always stuck up for whoever needed it. She was honest, and she was proud of you. Hugs to you. I'm so sorry.

P.S. Please let us know what charities we might donate to in her memory.
