thank you Kristi for sending this to me and to Sunshine Ray for posting this. My heart is broken today as I had such hopes she was healing. She is resting in God's hands now and I only wish for her to be comfortable ,without pain, to somehow know how much she is loved, and that she is leaving the world a better place for having been here. Agnes made a difference each and every day with her caring, her sense of humor and her kindness toward everyone. Comfort love and hope to her family

May you take comfort in the GREAT and LOVING person she was and how she shared her humor with everyone. So sorry we lost an Angel but I know someday we will see her again.

Thank you Sunshine and Jennie for letting me know about the extremely sad news. This will be a day of mourning for us, as Agnes Corbett was one of our truly dearest friends. We messaged each other on nearly a daily bases and Care2 just hasn't been the same sense she became ill. Tears of sadness!! We will miss her so much. I'm planting a tree in her name to honor this kindest soul on earth. May she rest gently in her fathers arms. RIP

Another angel watches over us...
A Symbol of Hope


A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

Agnes may be gone, but certainly not forgotten. Rest in Peace...

Never Alone
by Rodney Belcher

I feel you in the morning
When at first I awake
Your thought is with me
With each decision I make

You'd been around forever
Since the first breath I took
Now I have to go on alone
But for love, I need not look

Cause by what you bestowed
In our short time together
Will last in my heart
Forever and ever

Although you've left
And now walk above
I'm never alone
I'm wrapped in your love

Enjoy now your long waited reward
Feel peace that your love continues on
What was taught to me, will be taught to mine
Cause you live on in me even after you've gone

I didn't know Agnes, but it is plain that she was a friend to this world.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.


Do not stand at my grave and weep is a popular poem, largely considered to be written by Mary Elizabeth Frye (1904-2004), but of disputed origin.

Agnes was, (and is), loved by all who knew her. She was a very special lady that brought joy to everyone. She was dedicated to the causes here on Care2, and always worked her hardest to help in any way that she could to make this a better world. She will truly be missed ~ our hearts were touched by her special soul ~ she will never be far from our thoughts. My sincerest sympathy goes out to her husband and family ~ may they have the strength to endure these heartbreaking and trying times. You will always be here in spirit dear sweet Agnes. We all love you honey.

To say I am saddened at this news is an understatement. Agnes was a great inspiration and emotive support. I had great respect for her empathy and efforts in support of animal rights. To our younger friends, please don't be offended when I say I feel an older person's voice in support of animals and Nature is in some ways more valuable because, at a comparable age level, it smacks the face of Governments and Industry who hold so much responsibility for their exploitation. Agnes was one of those valuable voices. Please don't let her efforts be in vain. God bless you and keep you, Agnes, till we meet.

So sad to hear this news. Agnes was not on my friends list, but she frequently sent me stars. So one day I asked her why she did that. She said "Because I want to" :) I told her she was the one that deserved the stars for being such a beautiful soul. She also wrote to my son about something he had said on an animal story and she liked what he said. An amazing woman and will be greatly missed. Sad, sad news.

Dear Friends Do Not Weep For Me

I’m going to another place
that mortals cannot see.
I’m going now to meet my Lord
So don’t you weep for me.

He guided me throughout my life,
He shared my joys and pain,
He made the greatest Sacrifice,
He died and rose again.

Death is no end but just a start
No weary ways to plod
Eternal life and happiness
Immortal joy with God.

Querida Amiga Agnes:
A UM AUSENTE

Tenho razão de sentir saudade,
tenho razão de te acusar.
Houve um pacto implícito que rompeste
e sem te despedires foste embora.
Detonaste o pacto.
Detonaste a vida geral, a comum aquiescência
de viver e explorar os rumos de obscuridade
sem prazo sem consulta sem provocação
até o limite das folhas caídas na hora de cair.

Antecipaste a hora.
Teu ponteiro enlouqueceu, enlouquecendo nossas horas.
Que poderias ter feito de mais grave
do que o ato sem continuação, o ato em si,
o ato que não ousamos nem sabemos ousar
porque depois dele não há nada?

Tenho razão para sentir saudade de ti,
de nossa convivência em falas camaradas,
simples apertar de mãos, nem isso, voz
modulando sílabas conhecidas e banais
que eram sempre certeza e segurança.

Sim, tenho saudades.
Sim, acuso-te porque fizeste
o não previsto nas leis da amizade e da natureza
nem nos deixaste sequer o direito de indagar
porque o fizeste, porque te foste.

Carlos Drummond de Andrade

... até nos voltarmos a ver de novo Agnes, até lá.

Com Saudade Ana M.

p.s. dear friends forgive me for not translate the poem. This is one of the most beautiful of the portuguese language and, has the word that exists only in my mother language: SAUDADE. I am to sad but as I belive, we will meet again. Until then stays the Saudade. Thank you for understing, Ana M.

Agnes has been a tower of strength for me and my family over the last few months and we are deeply saddened at this news. In life we may have many people we come to know and love, peoplewho will stand beside you to help you stande tall in a storm, to make you smile when things are looking bleak, to make you feel warm when you are cold, but very few would give you their entire heart and soul. Agnes was one such person, a real friend and the world has been enriched for her being here. If the word "irreplaceable" was ever as true, it is with Agnes.
The world will never forget her contribution to life on this planet for all those living.The work an projects she has been involved in are left with her legacy and that they should grow stronger for Agnes having been a part of them. My life is better for knowing such a true spirit of goodness as Agnes has been to me personally.
She will be greatly missed but NEVER forgotten.
Agnes, from wherever you are looking down at us and me as I write, muito amor by dear sweet friend, ansd we will meet one day, in joy...
Rest easy now, your work on Earth may be done and what you achieved and for those you educated and loved, it will contiinue, I have no doubt your sincerity, compassion and deep meaningful humanity will shine on until we all reach that new beginning.
I will miss her so much. The mails and messages never failed to lift me.
Adios and adieu my friend, and bon voyage...
DEUS TE ABENÇÕE E AOS TEUS!
Muitas bênçãos
muito amor

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a 1,000 winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sun on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled light
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there; I did not die.

We will miss you Dear Agnes, the world is a much better place because you were here!

I have just signed on to care2 and I see this in my messages. Tears. This is so sad. I did not want to have to see this. Agnes Corbett was and is a blessing to all who ever she had contact with. A truly beautiful heart and soul. It is so sad that she has passed on because we will all miss her so much. When I read yesterday she had gotten worse my heart sank. I think we should all plant a tree if we are able to where we live. Agnes would love that. I am happy that she is not suffering anymore and is now living with the other angels like her.
Dear sweet Agnes you are truly missed. God Bless you and your family. We won't forget you.

I didn't 'know' Agnes..nonetheless i saw her comments from time to time and always meant to ask to link with her. I know she had an open heart full of compassion. It is always sad to lose such a spirit. I send my sincerest condolences and sympathy to her family. I know she will be missed by many.

Now she is soaring above & keeping watch over her loved ones -- no more pain or worries.
Thank you Blue Bunting for the prayer -- very nice.

My dear friends
Agnes passed her final crossing...Hope did it easily and
has her peace, all answers and is comforted in eternal and pure love
and mercy..I pray for it...

We are all to do that way yet...And you know as well as I do, till we
face that final moment, our way and duty is to go through this life as
honest as we can..I am sure Agnes is smiling on us from heaven and is
happy seeing us that we appreciate every single moment of beauty in
this world..and bad one too, for we learn the best from them..
She did her life good, spread her love, she gave us part of her life..
And see..we are here to give her our respect and show our consolation..
Be fine , my dear friends no much tears, but smile, Agnes will be happier
to see it
Bye Agnes..till our next seeing , i hope will deserve it..rest in peace and eternal love...

too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,

I did not know Agnes, and judging by the reaction of her friends to her pasing, I am the poorer for not knowing her.
I see so many of my friends here on this page, and I wish to extend to everyone my deepest condolences. I have read somewhere at C2 that messages have come in from 16 countries. What an amazing mark Agnes has left on this planet.
Blessed Be to all who knew her.

My dear friends, I know how you must be feeling right now knowing that our special Angel has left this world. It certainly is an irreparable loss to all of us. I am so heart broken right now that I can only express my heartfelt feelings towards our dearest friend in the form of these two beautiful poems presented below:

1. If We Could Bring You Back Again

If we could bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We’d express all our unspoken love;
We’d have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You’d know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would.

By Joanna Fuchs

2. A Better Place

She’s in a better place right now
Than she’s ever been before;
All pain is gone; she’s now at rest;
Nothing troubles her anymore.

It’s we who feel the burden of
Our sadness and our grief;.
We have to cry, to mourn our loss,
Before we get relief.

We know we’ll reconnect with her
At the end of each life’s road;
We’ll see her cherished face again
When we release our earthly load.

By Joanna Fuchs

My friends, on this occasion, I do share my grief with Agne's family members and hope and pray that they will be comforted by the Angel on high. Good bye my friend.Thanks for all that you have done to make life worth more living while you were here with us on this earth. May your exhausted body & your soul Rest in Peace forever in the bosom of the Lord.

From a friend who will never forget you - Ivy

SILENT TEARS
Each night we shed a silent tear
As we speak to you in prayer
To let you know we love you
And just how much we care
Take our million teardrops
Wrap them up in love
Then ask the wind to carry them
To you in heaven above.

I will miss you my FRIEND!

I really liked this woman. I visited her page several times and I would think, this woman's so cool. She seemed like someone I would like to know. I almost sent a friends request but didn't. I think somehow it didn't seem important with her. I just liked knowing she was on Care2. I wish her husband and family the best.

Navajo Prayer


"Beauty is before me,
And beauty is behind me.
Above and below me hovers the beautiful.
I am surrounded by it.
I am immersed in it.
In my youth I am aware of it,
And in old age I shall walk quietly
The beautiful trail."

About a year ago I started a humorous thread in a group that dealt with regional and ethnic speech and sayings. Agnes and I shared many belly laughs in that group and she especially loved the Bubba and Eunice stories that I wrote. I'm an old Southern lady and drew on my years here in the South and was delighted at so many of Agnes's comments. We became good friends with a mutual respect for the work that we do for animals,ecology, and our other passions. I miss her sweet face and her kindness and Care2 has lost a true warrior. My condolences to her family and to all of us who will miss a truly wonderful woman.

Guantanamera

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CQUHHoN_30

These lyrics are the ones based on the Martí poem:

chorus: Guantanamera, guajira Guantanamera


I am a truthful man
From where the palm tree grows
And before dying I want
To let out the verses of my soul

My verse is light green
And it is flaming red
My verse is a wounded stag
Who seeks refuge on the mountain

I grow a white rose
In July just as in January
For the honest friend
Who gives me his open hand

With the poor people of the earth
I want to cast my lot
The brook of the mountains
Gives me more pleasure than the sea


You can find the Spanish lyrics here:
