    Just a quick note to let everyone know that M!S and Baja have lost a great friend. Corliss Andrews, aka Dixie Lonestar, passed this morning from a heart condition. We don't have a lot of details at the moment but will post them as soon as we have them.

    Dixie was a wife, mother and grandmother, and a great and true friend to all that knew and loved her. She will be missed more than words can say, and our hearts go out to her husband, daughter, son-in-law and two beautiful grandchildren who loved her so very much.

    We will be holding a memorial on Baja in memory of Dixie, we'll post the details as soon as they are set.

    Many prayers and positive vibes to Dixie and her family. Baja has lost an amazing soul, but we'll always remember. I remember Dixie from WAY back when, and tonight, it's sake shots and amazing memories in your name, Dixie.

    The RL funeral will be 6/6/2013 Thursday. The Baja memorial is still pending.

    For those interested in paying your respects to my mom. The viewing is Thursday from 3-5pm with a small service at Elgin Funeral Home at 4pm. A Life Celebration will follow at the family home at 6pm.

    She will be sorely missed. Our adventure will be a little less sweet, the sky's a little less bright, our paths longer. Rest in peace Dixie. (Hangs head in sorrow). My condolences to her family. She was a great woman.

    We will always remember and honor the memory of Dixie, who touched all of our lives in this little UO world. I shall always be grateful for having known her.

    Farewell my friend you're leaving
    It's time for you to go
    Your friendship was a blessing
    And I will miss you so
    We Shared so many secrets
    You brightened up my days
    You brought me so much happiness
    With your kind and loving ways
    You lifted up my spirits
    When I was feeling blue
    No matter what was happening
    You knew just what to do
    And oh, we had such fun
    Through all the ups and downs of life
    The good times and the sad
    God is here to take you home
    Now you and I must part
    I love you and forever
    You will live within my heart.

    I just read the passing to my wife and she cried. Herself and Dixie spent countless hours together taming and doing the grind.. just figured id share that. Even though we never met her r/l she had an impression.

    I hadn't posted on Stratics after Toni let me know about Dixie. Instead, I wrote a message to the family on the funeral website. After reading many of the posts about Dixie, I decided it was time to share a couple things since Dixie would want us remembering how much joy and laughter she brought to many of us.

    Being a northern gal and Dixie a true southern gal (accent and all), I'd log into Vent and hear, "Well, hello there Mama. How are you doing tonight?" spoken with that adorable southern drawl. If my mood was icky, she knew how to cheer me. When our family went through a horrendous tragedy, Dixie and the rest of the gang in Vent were there to counsel me and keep me from getting bitter. Dixie was a faith-filled woman and I admired the way she "walked the talk". She knew how to make people smile, whether it was singing "Wild Thing" (complete with music background) or telling a bad joke (not dirty) that had us all laughing because of the silliness. Dixie was such a blessing and though I still shed some tears when thinking of her, I thank God for having known her. On that note, I want to share my favorite saying that I've come to cherish after losing people we love and care about. "When a loved one becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure". Dixie's memory will always be a treasure in my eyes. *deep curtsey with hand over heart*
