Today I wanted to honor someone who was a very special commenter / contributor to this blog who has recently passed away. She wasn’t active on SOS for the past year, but for two years before that she commented regularly and became a supporter to my efforts here in a way that few could understand unless you regularly read her comments and correspondences through e-mail. She went by the name Sparks, and she passed on the night of the 18th of April.
Sparks wasn’t just a special commenter and contributor of SOS. She was a light that drew people together through her kindness and compassion. She always had an encouraging word. She was one of those rock solid people that handled trials and tribulations in a way that made you understand she was just a special soul that learned to move forward with joy and faith no matter what was going on. She was articulate, intelligent, compassionate, and born with a special gift of pulling people together in tight knit communities where encouragement and support was the main theme. She was a MOTHER to so many of us here, as I am sure many of you who corresponded with her will attest to. We are going to miss her dearly.
There are few people who come along in the world like Sparks. I remember going through a time around Valentines Day a few years back when the money got tight. I wanted to do something special with Jess, but all I could afford was a cheap dinner. Sparks didn’t know this, but somehow got the heart to send a hundred dollar bill with a note that said, “Take Jess out for a special date.” For the next two years she would send little gifts every few months or so. She was just such a giver.
By far her biggest contributions came in with awesome comments that always added another spiritual layer to the discussion of so many articles on SOS. In fact, I believe it was her that coined the term SOS in the first place, and many of us have been using it ever since.
Many of you that come here regularly got to know her on a personal level. I’m sure you guys could add something in the comment section that would make her memory stand as long as this blog is here.
May you rest in peace, Sparks, and may your future journeys be as big and grand to reflect the amount of soul growth that I know you attained during your life on the physical plane. We will also miss you dearly.
Many blessings, Sparks!
