Thank you to LCF! :)

Thank you, LCF, for kind support and help, for making the walk of LC-living much nicer. The thinking together about how to live healthfully and what that means has been of immeasurable help.

The kindness here has been a sustenance that is, indeed, rare.

A special thank-you to those who have worked "invisibly", putting the threads and posts in the right places, putting so much in order, helping us all with neighborly care.

I will miss visiting here, and miss the specialness that is LCF.

Thank you, and God bless you, all, as we walk new steps.

Best wishes and God speed.

Yes, thank you. I have been a lurker since the very early 2000s and anytime I have needed inspiration and motivation this is where I've come. I'm so thankful to all who kept this place going.

Well said Auntie Em! I echo much of the sentiment. I would add that for me, I so appreciate the fantastic amount of knowledge and information that was freely offered by so many members. It has been essential in my journey.

I have "met" so many wonderful people through LCF. I'm glad I found this site, and I'm very glad we have a new one where we can continue on. This place is like family.

It has truly been my honor and privilege to get to "know" all of you over the years.
This site has been a real bastion of knowledge and camaraderie for many.
It's hard to say goodbye, "it's just a site", right?
But it's so much more than that.

From the time Mangus and 808State started it, then Tom Roddy (Netrition) and his wonderful family cared and nurtured it, then Kathy took the reigns when Tom became ill.
We owe so many thanks to the entire Roddy and Netrition family for building and nurturing this site over the years.

Then there are the people, the individuals, who gave so much of their time, energy, science, studies, snark (lol), and just themselves on here to make it a real "home" for so many years.

So that Thank You encompasses all of you, every single one.

(now I sound all sappy and emo )

Thank you, LCF.

I've mostly lurked for the last 20 years. But I have read so much wisdom here. . .

My health has been better than it could have been because of the wise people (mostly women) of LCF.

I have found so much valuable information here, I'm not sure how to express my gratitude. The support and kindness has been wonderful.

I do remember the earlier days, the drama, the great success stories (SugarFreeSheila, Fawn, Twyla)--so inspiring.

It almost seems like we should have a compilation of "the best of LCF" somewhere.

Again, thanks.


Pat
