In memory of our PSP / CBD Angels ...

Postby daddysgirl » Fri Jan 14, 2005 3:13 pm

02/16/14 *** I've updated the list of our Angels, it breaks my heart that this disease is still taking our loved one's away :cry: ***

If anyone would like for me to add their loved one to our Memorial List of Angels, please let me know and I will add their name. I do believe this a way to honor those that were taken away from us by PSP / CBD and other related brain diseases. Below is my original posting, as well as the updated list:

I was sitting at the computer and curiousity took over, so I began to do some research. I went back and searched through old postings, mostly from when the subject would have indicated the loss of a PWPSP. I’d like to list those who lost their battle to PSP as a dedication and memorial to their bravery. The way that the list will read is:

Date of death (if given) ,
PWPSP that has passed (if name was not listed, I’ll show with ***) ,
Relationship to and name of poster ,
In ( ), the poster’s user name

For the disease to be as “rare” as it is supposed to be, this list is too long. And, I know there would be many more names on this list if their loved ones were aware of and/or a part of this forum. In our Houston support group, we lost at least 5 angels in 2004. May all of those that are now freed from the bonds of PSP (the PWPSP and their loved ones) continue their lives, whether here on earth or in Heaven, in PEACE.

I pulled the information from previous postings. If I’ve left anyone off, I apologize. Although we don’t want to see the list get any longer, please feel free to give the names of anyone you know. I hope that I have not offended anybody or brought further pain to anyone’s life by doing this. As this family on the forum is one that none of us would have wanted to be a part of, this list is one that I know my dad would like to have been left off of. We’ll always miss our loved ones, but let us honor them now for they have truly “come out on top”. The night skies definitely shine brighter with all of these stars:

List of our PSP angels ...

Postby Marsha » Fri Jan 14, 2005 3:25 pm

Laura, what a beautiful tribute. I'm just getting famliar with this forum as my Mom is just diagnosed but has had symptoms for a year. I hope I can still count on you for support as I am just starting on this horrible journey. My condolences on your loss.

There are many whose names we will never know because their caregivers do not use computers. Of the three women I know in Maine of whom two husbands have died and one still lives in a nursing home, none use a computer and visit this site. As far as I know, I am the only one from Maine who has a loved one with PSP and posts to the Forum. I would like to see this website form a permanent memorial "wall" for those who are finally free of PSP. Could we ask the webmaster to make it separate from the regular Forum format?

Pauline ...

When I was putting this list together, a memorial "wall" is exactly what I pictured in my mind. I'm sure this list could <u>easily</u> be 10 - 20 times longer if all that passed away with PSP were on here ... which only solidifies the fact that this damn disease is not as rare as stated.

Pauline, my mom was living in Maine until she had to go into a nursing home. She has psp and it took her husband a long time to admitt that he no longer could care for her. So, now she lives in New Hampshire at a nursing home,(just 10 miles from their home.) but her husband takes her to their place in Maine on Saturday afternoon for lunch. Juat thought I'd let you know.

Laura, thanks for doing this. This kind of information can be used in many ways. This count could, as you say prove that PSP is not as rare as some believe.

As has been said, add those that do not post here, plus those who have been misdiagnosed and the list would grow at speed. However any history we can provide has to help in research.

keep posting

What a beautiful idea.................It makes me cry, it makes me smile. What a strange disease this is to feel every human emotion. And in the plight of our loved one's struggle, it's all these emotions and dedications together that make us feel so alive.

Thanks to you I know that my mother's memory, when her time comes, will not be a quiet and solemn, solitary remembrance, but a journey filled with hope and faith for better things to come.

You are the most remarkable people I have ever met. I am grateful.

I know none of you, but I love all of you, if that makes sense.

I love this idea of a memorial wall and as Georgie says it may well be a useful tool for ongoing research if relatives were willing to be contacted - just a thought.

What a beautiful idea! This should really be a seperate folder all together, so it is easy to find. I have tried to get in touch with the web master before on how to start a new folder, but no one ever responds. I think "Who we are" and Anne's Tribute to her Father would also be good seperate folders.
You put some time and work into this,and it needs to continuously be noticed.

Myth ...

I also think it would be a great idea for their to be a "memorial" folder added. At our support group meeting Saturday, I asked our leader how many we lost in 2004. In my original post, I said 5, but she said that we actually lost 10. And, the Houston support group has had 6 brain donations. My mom was going to donate my dad's brain, but in the end simply could not do it.

Our leader, Karen, has spoken with the new executive director of the Society for PSP and she was very impressed with him. I'll drop her a line and maybe she'll be able to get in touch with someone at the home office about creating a "memorial" folder.

Strange as this may sound, it was very uplifting for me when I was creating the list. My dad was in the Knights of Columbus and every year there is a memorial mass for the KC's and Catholic Daughters. The names of all that had passed away since the inception of the our KC council and CDA court are read out loud as a candle is being lit. It is truly a beautiful ceremony. This is what I hoped this list would be.

Daddy passed away just 20 days ago. Karen asked me at the meeting how we (my mom, 2 sisters & I) were doing. I told her that it was weird, but we were all doing very well and that in our hearts, we were happy for Daddy, not sad. She said that in her experience in talking with family members after they have lost their loved ones, it is mentioned that the sense of relief after the passing is almost immediate. She said that those left behind are "giddy". I told her that is exactly how it was for us. We said people probably thought we were uncaring, but when greeting those that attended his services and burial, the room was filled with smiles and laughter. My mom wanted his services to be a celebration of Daddy's life, and that is just what they were. I know Daddy was smiling down at us. We cried many tears between his diagnosis and death, and knowing that he was finally freed from the bonds of PSP, we rejoiced.

I'll drop an e-mail to Karen tomorrow ... hopefully we'll see a memorial folder soon.

Take care and God Bless ...[:)]

Hello all ...

I sent an e-mail to Karen, the Houston support group leader, this morning. I received a response back from her that she had sent our request for a Memorial folder to the Society. She received an answer from Jessica who is a liasison with Chris, the webmaster. Jessica said she thinks the folder is a great idea and that Chris had been working on a Memorial Wall. Karen is confident that the Memorial Folder will happen, we're just not sure when.

I know it would make all of us happy if we never had to post another name on the list, but sadly, that is not the case in this ugly world of PSP.

Take care everyone. If I get any additional information, I'll be sure to pass it along.

All my love to each of you [:)]

I agree this is a great idea. Could we include more information? Perhaps the webmaster can create an easy 'form' we could fill in, because it would also be nice to know certain things like age at passing, years diagnosed, years with symptoms andsoon. Any feedback?

Laura,
What a great idea! In our hearts, our loving persons with PSP are (were) just as important as Vietnam War wall, etc. We should at least have a wall among us.
I haven't posted lately. Have been having much trouble getting Ron's things settled. He passed on Nov. 9, 2004, and I have yet to get any insurance money or a social security check. Do other people have that much trouble? They seem to think they can make me feel inferior to them. They are really disgusting me. I'm sure they don't care whether my bills get paid or not. Since processing Soc. Sec. checks is ALL they do, they hadn't ought to take three months or longer.
Thanks for letting me vent. You friends on the forum are sometimes the only ones who understand, and I appreciate all of you. This forum has meant a lot to me during Ron's illness. I plan to continue to check with all of you.
God Bless each of you. Phyl

Phyl, Sorry to hear of the royal run around you are recieving!!
Stand firm, state your case and take it to the next level if need be. Sometimes people like to make others feel inferior. Don't yell, bully etc... even though by now you want to. State the facts and let them know who you are. Don't be afraid to ask for the supervisor etc.. sometimes we have to do this to be heard and taken seriously. I wish you well. Hang in there it will all work out.

Sadly there are more names that could be added to the list of our PSP Angels.

Since I compiled the list in January, I've seen mention in recent postings of at least 5 more of our loved ones who have been freed from the bonds of PSP and are now able to walk and talk again. Although I rejoice in that fact, it breaks my heart to know that PSP continues to steal our loved ones away from us ... one by one.

Questioning WHY this has happened or is happening to our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, etc... is natural. I don't guess we'll fully understand or know "why" until we meet our loved ones and our maker in Heaven.

I look forward to seeing Daddy again and to meeting all of the other PSP Angels up in Heaven.

Till then ....

Many have left us, but LOOK at the new ones who are on board! It seems like everytime you open the forum up, there's another person striken with PSP. It breaks your heart.

Yesterday afternoon I watched a movie on TV starring Robin Williams and it was titled "Now What Dreams May Come". Although it may not have been Biblically based, it was a real tear-jerker about dying and what happens next. When Robin Williams' character died, he ended up seeing a landscape identical to a mural his artist wife had been painting at the time of his death and she had painted his figure standing under a tree in it. Another character in the movie, said that in heaven you get to see what you want to see and everyone there had a different vision, a different dream.

After watching that movie, I was both uplifted and bummed out at the same time. You have to see it for yourself.

We all know that our loved ones with PSP definitely will be made whole again and be waiting to greet us and share dreams once again.

Pauline ...

I saw that movie some years back and I still remember the scene you are talking about after the death of Robin William's character. It was beautiful.

Candy ...

In honor of your mother and at your request I will add her name to the list.

If anyone else has lost their loved one and would like for me to edit my original posting to add their loved one's name to the list, please just let me know. I truly think this list is a way to remember and honor our loved ones that lost their fight with PSP.

Take care everyone ...

I would like to add my mother Mary to the list of angels. Although she did not die directly from PSP, she did have the awful disease for 6 years. A Massive stroke took her from us. My mother died Feb.4, 2005. Thanks...

I think the Memorial Wall is a great idea.....although nobody wants their loved one's name on that wall, its a thoughtful way to honor their life and their struggle with this horrible disease.

I agree that there are too many people with this disease for it to be considered "rare". My father donated his brain to the PSP Brain Bank and when I spoke with his neurologists office I found out that they had (and this is just one neurologist) 8 PSP patients donate their brains as of early December 2004 - that doesn't even count those who passed away and didn't donate their brains. This disease is much too prevalent not to have a cure found.

Please add my wonderful, loving father to the Memorial Wall:
B. Hal Brown
May 3, 1934 - November 22, 2004

Thanks
Alice

I don't want to break in here uselessly but I'm the webmaster of pspinformation.com. I wish I could offer to organize, setup and maintain the memorial wall you suggest.

I can create such a "wall" and I would be glad to furnish the webspace for it at no cost.

I however don't have the time currently to organize the effort, collect the data and continue to add names over a period of years. If someone will agree to take this over as a volunteer we can be in business quickly.

I have three websites we can choose from. PSPInformation.com primarily covers PSP. Neurosy.org covers other neurological diseases except PSP and Parkinson's.

Several years ago my oldest son died and I created a site that mainly honors him - you may like the name and if you choose it I can move his information elsewhere or separate it in some way. The website is at http://www.pearly-gates.net.

There you have it - you have an offer and a challange. You can get in touch with me at rritch9@pspinformation.com

Thank you so very much for adding my mothers name to the list of angels. Would it be too much to ask you to revise that to read, Mother to Cindy and Harry..now that my brother has joined our family here. You already conversed with him. His screenname is "Your shoulder to lean on"....

Thank you again Laura..
Cindy

PS...I've addressed a post to you. Don't know if you read it or not. I just wanted to send a little "thanks" your way.

Hi,

Some recent, sad info for your site: my mother-in-law died 2/28/05 of psp. I recently wrote a short poem about Dorothy that you can read as a recent post.

02/28/05 Dorothy, mother of Laura and Judy, mother-in-law of Jim (Jim Ballard)

Thanks for adding her name.

Please add my father's name to the list of angels:
March 2, 2005
Phillip Gallicchio, daughter, Phyllis Gallicchio
(pgallicc)

I'm still in shock that he's gone. He had been living with psp for 5 years. it was a week from the day they told us they thought he was trying to pass. he had a fever. From then on he didn't eat or drink anything. I felt like we were starving him but he wasn't able to swallow. he had labored breath for about 3 days, then the pauses became longer and longer. I thought i was prepared for it because i knew my dad would hate living the way he had to live, not being able to move or do anything for himself. He had no way of communicating, he couldn't talk, or write. We could tell though that he knew what was going on around him and who we all were, that's what made it so hard, he knew what was happening to him. In the end his family was at his bedside until he took his last breath. I'm going to miss him so much but he's at peace now and in no pain hopefully.

I was sitting at the computer and curiousity took over, so I began to do some research. I went back and searched through old postings, mostly from when the subject would have indicated the loss of a PWPSP. I’d like to list those who lost their battle to PSP as a dedication and memorial to their bravery. The way that the list will read is:

Date of death (if given) ,
PWPSP that has passed (if name was not listed, I’ll show with ***) ,
Relationship to and name of poster ,
In ( ), the poster’s user name

For the disease to be as “rare” as it is supposed to be, this list is too long. And, I know there would be many more names on this list if their loved ones were aware of and/or a part of this forum. In our Houston support group, we lost at least 5 angels in 2004. May all of those that are now freed from the bonds of PSP (the PWPSP and their loved ones) continue their lives, whether here on earth or in Heaven, in PEACE.

I pulled the information from previous postings. If I’ve left anyone off, I apologize. Although we don’t want to see the list get any longer, please feel free to give the names of anyone you know. I hope that I have not offended anybody or brought further pain to anyone’s life by doing this. As this family on the forum is one that none of us would have wanted to be a part of, this list is one that I know my dad would like to have been left off of. We’ll always miss our loved ones, but let us honor them now for they have truly “come out on top”. The night skies definitely shine brighter with all of these stars:

Dear Phyllis, My thoughts and prayers are sent to you at this time. Sorry to hear of your father's passing. I know he is in heaven and standing tall, maybe even dancing.
He was blessed to have a loving family to care for him. Keep the memories of your dad in your heart, and anytime you miss know that he is as close to as your heart.
God bless.

In memory of my sweet and courageous momma,

04/05/05, Dorothy Yanero, 74 years of age, mother of Trish(Squirrel)

She lived with me and I cared for her through her last years. She died in my arms while we looked into each other's eyes. Through tears I watched her slip from me, talking about the wonderful memories she gave to her children, how lucky I was that she came into my home and I thanked her for being my Mom. What follows is the heartfelt words I read to her family and friends at her Memorial Service. God Bless you all who have loved ones with this horrible disease.

<b>A Tribute to My Mother</b>

I joined my mother in her final journey just three short years ago. I walked with her every day down that path.

Other loved ones came and joined hands and walked with us a little ways. But ultimately, it was I who held her hand until the very end of her arduous journey.

In the last two weeks, there had been signs. Some of which were shared among her loving children. Some may call them coincidences.
If they were found in the rich plot lines of a Steinbeck novel, many would recognize them as foreshadowing of events yet to unfold.

But, whatever their significance, I still held on to the hope that I would be bringing her home.
She has gone home.

You may have known my mother as well as anyone else on this vast earth, but you still would have been amazed at the woman she had become.

On the surface, she appeared to be a shadow of her former self, but in actuality, she was the pillar of strength and bravery. She touched the lives around her, not with the words which had become so difficult to speak, but with the volumes she spoke with her indominable spirit.

She was the epitomy of humility and humbleness, with an undying faith in Our Heavenly Father and an unparalleled sense of humor in the face of adversity.

She lived with grace and dignity, and an abundance of love for her family and friends.
She brought my family closer together and taught us that the ties that bind are never broken-
Faith and Love transcend all.

Where in this life her physical constraints were ever more limiting, now, she is free to dance, to sing with the choirs of angels, and she has seen the beautiful, unimaginable face of God.

She dwells in the warmth of Our Lord's love,
surrounded by the family and friends who have completed their journey before her.

For now, the pain of her absence in my life, in my home, is over-powering. I ache so deeply for her embrace, her sweet kiss, her warm hand and her contagious laughter.

Her heartbeat was the first sound I heard in this world and I will miss her for the rest of my life.

Each of us has three birthdays: The very moment of conception-the miracle of life itself,
our birth into this world, and our glorious rebirth into eternity.

I pray, that when my final birthday arrives, I will, as she so beautifully did, release the hands of my loved ones here, grab hold of my mother's hand, and walk through the gates of paradise with her at my side.

My Dear Sweet Momma,

Thank you for my life, your love, for all you have taught me that has helped to make me who I am, and for sharing your last precious days with me.

I Love You "Mostest"

Your Baby Daughter,

Tricia
Squirrel

Wow ... it's hard to believe that it's been about 6 months since there was a name added to our memorial wall ... and sadly, I have seen so many mentions of another loved one passing away from PSP. Even more sad is how many new people have had to come to this place for guidance and support. I know for me, it was a welcome place for my broken heart and spirit to come to.

My dad's been gone now for 14 months. Though we miss him every day, our hearts still rejoice knowing that he no longer suffers at the hands of that bastard PSP.

If anyone would like me to add their loved ones name, it would be my honor to do so.

Hugs and kisses to all my fellow PSP brothers and sisters.

Ed ... although I was honored to put this list together in memory of my dad, I have never wanted to assume that anyone would want their loved one's name here. For some, that could be too painful. Therefore, out of respect for the PWPSP that passed away and their family, I only add a name upon request.

My love to all.

Laura,
This wall seems so appropriate for all of these people with PSP.
Especailly my mom. She loved angels. Unfortunately I have to ask you to add her to this list. She left this earth on Febuary 9, 2006. She
was the wonderful and loving mother myself Tonya and my sister Tisa.
And wife to my daddy James. I know she would be so proud to know she is being recognized after fighting so hard and so long with this terrible disease.

Thanks for adding my mom. Lola, mother of Julie Z (jz).

She was my BEST FRIEND....I miss her so much, my life will NEVER be the same, but with her on this list, her memory will be eternal and she will never be forgotten.

Thanks Laura for doing this. The list seems to get longer and longer, why is this illness NOT well known like Alzheimers and Parkinsons??!?!?!?! Seems like no one wants to recognize how devastating it is for those of us who have lost loved ones to it.

Thanks Ed !!!

Somehow I've been locked out from editing my original posting. As soon as it's fixed, I can once again add names to the list.

Ed ... when I click on the edit icon a note comes up saying "Only the poster of this message, and the moderator can edit the message" and then the following is in the "body" of the message box:

<b><font color="red">Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'rs'

/post.asp, line 642</font id="red"></b>

Kate, the moderator was able to get this topic "sticky" again, hopefully she'll be able to make the fix so that I can edit the angel list.

Thanks for your help!!

I saw this post about a memorial and think it is wonderful. My mom was called home on last week. She passed away on October 18th at about 1:30 pm. She was a true fighter and gave it all until the very end.

When requested, I've been adding names to our List of PSP Angels ... and what saddens me terribly is how many and how often we are losing our loved ones.

Obviously, this damn disease is not as "rare" as we were led to believe. My families journey ended almost 2 years ago when my dad passed away. But, just from what I see on the forum, there are so many more people battling through on their journey.

The question has been raised often about whether PSP is hereditary or not. I've already told my family that if I were to ever be diagnosed with PSP, I would probably kill myself. I definitely would not want my family (or myself) to live through that HELL again.

To those whose loved ones are blessedly now at peace, may we always be here with open arms for those that are still fighting the devil.

Take care everyone ... even though I've never met any of you, we are all part of the same family ... lots of love and hugs to all.

Laura, your words are encouraging for those of us still here. I do see how it would be so easy to want to try to forget. I realized just today as I left my Mom's Assited Living place, that what it is that is hardest on me is that I worry just how much worse she has to get before she is spared anymore. She wonders when and how, and I can't tell her, and I worry too. Those of us who are still watching the sadness and the suffering, so appreciate hearing from those of you who have seen it through to the end.

Teri ...

As devastating as it was watching my father waste away to a mere shell of the man he used to be, the most frightening thing was not knowing what was around the corner ... not knowing how much more he (or we) could take ... not knowing when the end would come and guiltily praying that it would come quickly.

Without a doubt, the hardest part of this disease for us to accept was the fact that Daddy lost his ability to speak. My dad LOVED to talk .. he would talk to the wall if it would talk back. So, him not being able to communicate to let us know how he was feeling, what he was thinking, if he was scared, if he was in pain, etc... was devastating. Dressing him, feeding him and changing his diapers were things we did with love, but if we were able to have him talk to us during those activities, it would not have hurt so much.

Please know that I (and others) are here if you need an ear or a shoulder. Lean on us ...

Take care [:)]

Our list of lost loved ones seems to be getting longer and longer. I thin we should email this to our congressman to see if they can bring to the forefront for Stem Cell Research.

Something has to be done to prevent PSP taking the next generation.

Just thinking outloud.

Please also add my Mother, Mary W. Schanzle to the list. We spent a long time fighting this BA*D disease. I tried to add a picture, but can't get the photo inserter to work. If you click my name to the left, and then click the red x, my yahoo page has it.

Momma passed into her rest in God's Arms on the 3rd of September 2000.

Myth ...

Yes, I am unforgettable [:D]

I as well remember you. It's been a while since I've jumped on the forum. My life has been a whirlwind for the last 6 months, so I don't get the opportunity to come "home" to my "family" often. I do hop on every so often to see if I need to update our Memorial Wall.

Sadly, I see that your mom has passed away. I hate this damn disease!!!!! Though it is hard for some to understand (that have not reached this point yet), I'm sure these days for you are filled with more joy than sadness over the loss of your mom. I know when my dad passed away, I simply could not feel sadness. I grieved for Daddy while he was alive and rejoiced when he was finally freed from his unmerciful suffering. I'm sure my dad (as well as all of the MANY other PSP angels) was there to welcome your mom to paradise and to an eternal life of peace.

Your mom was born on December 29th and my dad passed away on December 29th. Both of us will celebrate that day as a day of "being born" .. your mom to a mortal life and my dad to an immortal life.

Take care of yourself. I hope the days ahead are comforting knowing that your mom is free!!

See ya [:)]

April, Barbara and Nan ...

I've added the names of your mother's to the list of our PSP angels. It breaks my heart to see so many families being robbed of their loved ones by this devil we call PSP. Even sadder is how many more people are being thrown into the world of PSP.

It's NOT that rare, as we've always been told. It simply can't be for there to be so many people on this forum. And I'm sure that those on the forum are just a tip of the iceberg. We didn't learn of the Society or this wonderful family until 10 months after my dad's diagnosis. Those 10 months might have been more bearable had we known that we were not the only one's in the battle.

May you rejoice knowing that your mom's are free from the bonds of PSP and will eternally live in peace.

Take care ... [:)]

I was a caregiver for a man while his wife went to work. I was with him a year on March 27, 2007. He passed away on April 18, 2007. He was his usual self until a week and a half before his death. He got much worse on the 15th of April and in three days he was gone. None of us were prepared for such a quick passing. His neurologist had just told his wife that we were now talking in months til he died. I am still having problems dealing with his death. I know it will be better with time and that he is much better off, but I sure miss him. He and his wife were married for 44 years and I know his death is very hard for her. I am sure she is like me in feeling guilty for the times we lost our patience and got upset with him. I know we are only human but it is hard not to feel guilty. Please remember him. Death April 18, 2007 David, husband of Sharon; client of caregiver, cloverlady.

Greg ...

You are most welcome. I don't mean to be presumptious, but I believe seeing your dad's name on the list brought a sense of peace to you (as it did for me to put the list together). It still saddens me to no end seeing how many more people have become afflicted with this nasty disease and even more so to see how many of our loved one's this bastard keeps taking away.

My dad has been gone for almost 2 1/2 years now, but I can still vividly remember every detail of his last 2 years, simply existing in a body that no longer worked. We are forever grateful that my mom and dad were able to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary (in April) before he passed away in December.

I know that my dad still watches over us and has his hand in our lives, and I'm confident that it will be the same for you. Rejoice knowing that your dad has been freed from the bonds of PSP, and that he will now and forever be able to WALK and TALK with the other PSP angels.

Take care [:)]

<font color="blue"><i>08/07/06 .. Hello to all .. Sadly, there are many new members to the forum since I started this subject in January 2005 after my father's passing 12/29/04. It was my understanding that the webmaster was working on a "Memorial Wall" for the website ... but it never came to be. Forgive me, I recently inserted the following list in response to someone. However, over the weekend I received a request to add the name of another angel ... this is why my original subject has been re-activated.

If anyone would like for me to add their loved one to our List of PSP Angels, please let me know and I will add their name. I do believe this a way to honor those that were taken away from us by PSP. Below is my original posting, as well as the updated list:</i></font id="blue">

I was sitting at the computer and curiousity took over, so I began to do some research. I went back and searched through old postings, mostly from when the subject would have indicated the loss of a PWPSP. I’d like to list those who lost their battle to PSP as a dedication and memorial to their bravery. The way that the list will read is:

Date of death (if given) ,
PWPSP that has passed (if name was not listed, I’ll show with ***) ,
Relationship to and name of poster ,
In ( ), the poster’s user name

For the disease to be as “rare” as it is supposed to be, this list is too long. And, I know there would be many more names on this list if their loved ones were aware of and/or a part of this forum. In our Houston support group, we lost at least 5 angels in 2004. May all of those that are now freed from the bonds of PSP (the PWPSP and their loved ones) continue their lives, whether here on earth or in Heaven, in PEACE.

I pulled the information from previous postings. If I’ve left anyone off, I apologize. Although we don’t want to see the list get any longer, please feel free to give the names of anyone you know. I hope that I have not offended anybody or brought further pain to anyone’s life by doing this. As this family on the forum is one that none of us would have wanted to be a part of, this list is one that I know my dad would like to have been left off of. We’ll always miss our loved ones, but let us honor them now for they have truly “come out on top”. The night skies definitely shine brighter with all of these stars:

Out of curiousity, I just looked back at our list (past my father's name on 12/29/04) and there are 52 entries after his ... 21 in 2005, 21 in 2006 and 11 to date in 2007.

Just think, these are only the names of those that have requested to be added. I know there are many more that have passed away .. both from the forum and those around the world that are not a part of our family here on the forum.

This breaks my heart [:(]

HI Laura,

Well we need to add John's name to the list,

John, husband to Donna Marie, father to Darryl, David, Darrin and Doretta.

It is amazing when you see the statistics and the clusters.

Thank you, Donna

I think your idea of the memory list is a great tribute to our loved ones. My beloved husband of 43 years went to be with the Lord on June 17,2006. He was tragicly burned in a fire but it was the psp that really took him the fire just made his death come faster. It has been year but I still miss him so much. Keep up the good work thanks for adding Cyril to the list

Judie ... although it saddens me to know that there are more and more names being added to the list, it is my honor to add them. Yes, it is amazing how many people still have never heard of PSP.

As far as God blessing me .. he did the day I was born to the best parents in the world. It tore me up to see my dad go from a healthy, stout, TALKATIVE man to a mere silent shell of what he used to be. But, I rejoice knowing that he is in Heaven with our Lord and the ever growing number of PSP angels ... no longer suffering at the hands of PSP.

Take care Judie !!!

<font color="red"><i><b>06/27/07 *** Judie, I've added your husband's name ***</b></i></font id="red">

<font color="blue"><i>08/07/06 .. Hello to all .. Sadly, there are many new members to the forum since I started this subject in January 2005 after my father's passing 12/29/04. It was my understanding that the webmaster was working on a "Memorial Wall" for the website ... but it never came to be. Forgive me, I recently inserted the following list in response to someone. However, over the weekend I received a request to add the name of another angel ... this is why my original subject has been re-activated.

If anyone would like for me to add their loved one to our List of PSP Angels, please let me know and I will add their name. I do believe this a way to honor those that were taken away from us by PSP. Below is my original posting, as well as the updated list:</i></font id="blue">

I was sitting at the computer and curiousity took over, so I began to do some research. I went back and searched through old postings, mostly from when the subject would have indicated the loss of a PWPSP. I’d like to list those who lost their battle to PSP as a dedication and memorial to their bravery. The way that the list will read is:

Date of death (if given) ,
PWPSP that has passed (if name was not listed, I’ll show with ***) ,
Relationship to and name of poster ,
In ( ), the poster’s user name

For the disease to be as “rare” as it is supposed to be, this list is too long. And, I know there would be many more names on this list if their loved ones were aware of and/or a part of this forum. In our Houston support group, we lost at least 5 angels in 2004. May all of those that are now freed from the bonds of PSP (the PWPSP and their loved ones) continue their lives, whether here on earth or in Heaven, in PEACE.

I pulled the information from previous postings. If I’ve left anyone off, I apologize. Although we don’t want to see the list get any longer, please feel free to give the names of anyone you know. I hope that I have not offended anybody or brought further pain to anyone’s life by doing this. As this family on the forum is one that none of us would have wanted to be a part of, this list is one that I know my dad would like to have been left off of. We’ll always miss our loved ones, but let us honor them now for they have truly “come out on top”. The night skies definitely shine brighter with all of these stars:
