RIP, LC Beth, G.L.O.R.

News just reached us that LC Delftsman’s beloved Beth passed on to everlasting life.

My heart aches for you, Delfts, and there is only so much that words can do to lessen the pain of losing a loved one.

Rest assured, however, that this is but temporary, that Beth will be waiting for you on the other side, free of pain and suffering and anticipating you with open arms.

In the meanwhile, my dear friend, may G-d grant you strength and peace, and if there’s anything you need, you know that you’ve got an extended family around here.


Your brother in Christ,

    Thank You Misha, and all the other Rotties.

    I am still at the blubbering stage right now, but with all of your support, I hope to move on to the acceptance soon, Beth would have wanted it that way.
    Thank you all again for your loving support.

    My deepest condolences, Delfts. But what caused this to happen is now gone, and she is at rest. You will be rejoined.

  3. 3

    Delfts, I am so sorry for your loss my old friend. We’ve had to say goodbye to far too many of our friends lately. You know that you’re our family, whatever you need all you have to do is ask.

    May the peace of Christ comfort you and offer you solace.

    Deflts, I am SO sorry for your loss – This is getting to be a really unwelcome feature of the Rott these days. :(((

    Too many good men and women going much too soon and waaay too much heartache for good people to endure. 🙁

    Indeed. Orion, the Rottie world is shrinking waaaay too fast – indeed we all will meet the same fate. Eventually.

    We all have hope in Christ, just keep the faith. My condolences to you, Delftman, may He give you the Peace that we all need to carry us through our times of (temporary!) loss. We Rotties are here with you, we know your pain and I for one wish I could take the load from you. You and others (Caveman and Mary, for two) are in our prayers. Hang in there, buddy!

    Dear L-rd,

    All of us here that had the honor of meeting and getting to know her are devastated at yet another friend and Sister being called home to her eternal reward. She is most certainly in a better place and for those of us that knew her, can only feel sadness, not that she has been called home, but out of our own selfishness that yet another friend has been called home. We celebrate her life and what she meant to you Delfts and all that met and came to know her and mourn that we no longer have her sweet, gentle nature as an example to us all.

    May the L-rd bless you and keep you and may His countenance shine down upon you in this hour of mourning.

    My deepest condolences. I hadn’t realized that it had gotten so bad. As always, you can count on the Rotties for help and prayers when/if you need them.

    Radical Redneck growls and barks:

    Good Lord we’re losing them more and quicker than ever. 🙁

    I met Beth and she was exactly like you’d expect from her posts. Very kind, gentle and good natured. Too young too – I can’t imagine she was much beyond 50.

    Delftsman, you are in ALL our thought and prayers. My condolences.

  13. 13

    So many have left us, but that just means we’ll have more to greet us when we make the trip. My prayers and thoughts are with you Delfts. I know this is a painful time, and we grieve with you. Accept this long distance hug until such time it can be in person.
