    Beautiful, and so very sad. My heart aches for her parents and family.

    My heart goes out to her family.

    Death...makes me speechless, stunned that the world can look one way to someone --and then suddenly look so different, the only solution is to leave that world.

    Death is always tragic. Especiaqlly when it is a young person.I hope this was not a riding related death as it seems to have been happening alot this year
    Every time you ride, your are either teaching or un-teaching your horse.

    If I go..Do not cry
    because i am not really gone
    i am not my body , but thousands of things

    I am the wind, I am the rain
    I am the sun, on young grass
    I am the snow the thousands of things
    that I was

    And when you wake look at the trees, and the blue sky
    look at the butterflies and the flowers
    look at the birds in their flight

    Those thousands of things are me
    since i left my body
    you can see those thousands of things that were my life..
    I am not really gone

    Was this riding related?

    you look vaguely familiar.

    Theo, de familie wil niet dat er over van alles gespeculeerd wordt, het is triest genoeg, moet je dit nu zo weer naar buiten brengen? Heel onsmakelijk. Laat hun nu gewoon in vrede, niemand in Amerika weet wie ze is. Zou je alsjeblieft dit willen verwijderen, er is genoeg verdriet.

    Can someone translate this:

    Basically that poster is telling Theo that the family has gone through enough without Theo posting it on a BB. None (or not many) of the people on this BB know who she is so our speculations and probing are only causing more hurt. The poster also tells Theo to delete the post.

    Sorry, ik heb alles verwijderd.

    En aangezien familie en vrienden stelde veel baat te hebben bij de vele steunbetuigingen van forumleden, dacht ik er geen kwaad mee te doen.

    Nogmaals Mea Culpa !
