To my best friend Jason Deedon, died 4/12/12. He was 37 year old. I miss him every day, and wish I could talk to him, especially when my son was diagnosed...

In loving memory of my dearest love Timothy Patrick FitzGerald who left us October 28th 1997 from complications of Type 1 Diabetes at age 24. Still loved and missed everyday.

Live and know you have flown,
Fly and know you have seen,
See and know you have cried,
Cry and know you have hurt,
Hurt and know you have felt,
Feel and know you have loved,
Love and know you have lived.

Glad you created this group. I lost my cousin who gave me my insperation for fighting Type 1 about 10 years ago. Bless her she was such an insperation to me. She took Type 1 in the 50's and helped me understand whatI had. Here's to Debbie! She also taught me something I'l never forget. hen I got down and depressed one day I called her and ask her howshe could handle all the stuff that had happened to her (she had a kidney transplant, lost all but 2 of her fingers to amputation and had lost both her legs due to amputation at that time) she tld me just to be thankful for every sunrise & sunset Isaw everyday I was alive. Such an insperation!
