I thought it might be nice to share the quotes from eternaldisneyfan's Caringbridge page that she listed as her quotes to live by:

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.
Helen Keller

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
ZIGGY

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint-Exupé²¹

We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.
Sir Winston Churchill

When you come to the edge of all the light you know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown,
faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.
Barbara J. Winter

TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE ETERNAL

True independence and freedom can only exist in doing what's right. - Brigham Young

It's not about getting what you want, it's about wanting what you get.
Lyrics 'I'm Gonna Soak Up the Sun'

My sayings

I saw this thread earlier today and read Christamae's trip report in one sitting. She is a beautiful spirit.

I wish her family love and peace at this time.

If she has passed now, she is walking with Walt and learning of all the secrets to the "magic" that she so dearly loved.

I have seen confirmation this morning from Christamae's cousin, who has been more like a sister, that she passed away very suddenly about 2:30 am on Sunday, November 18.
I don't feel comfortable posting a link to it because I don't know the cousin and don't have permission to post. But, with the comments in Christamae's Facebook and Caringbridge sites and this by her cousin, it is clear she passed away on 11/18/12

RIP, Christamae. You were a sweet presence on Earth.

Praying for comfort and peace for those left behind - especially the remarkable family members who helped Christamae to make her dreams come true.

She left a beautiful legacy here through her trip reports and on her CaringBridge site and FB page. Like Sue and others, I pray for comfort for her friends and family (and am thinking unkind thoughts for the one leaving thoughtless posts on Christamae's CaringBridge site).

Christamae's trip report is one of the few I've read all the way through in one sitting - it is the kind of trip report that is about far more than WDW.

RIP Christamae.

I read Christamae's trip report and also read along on her CaringBridge page. This was posted by her sister on her facebook. It was her good-bye post.

"Some of you are probably wondering why? Or its not fair-she was so young-she couldve done so much more. But I did exactly what I needed. My mission was over. Complete. Id fulfilled my purpose. Please move past your pain and love God and fellow man. I dont want you to wallow or hate. Be joyful. Remember me with a smile-not a heavy heart. Thank you all for your friendship and support. I know that God sent some of you to help me through certain times. Now I know that I am with my strongest foundation-my Heavenly Father. I am basking in my Heavenly parents love and brother Christs care. Free of pain and perfected. Know that I am looking down on you and awaiting your arrival&I pray that you will find or stay close to the greatest gift, highest hope, and perfect peace the Gospel and God gave me. If you admired me for the way I acted, you can find that peace and hope. The gospel helped me look forward and keep an eternal perspective to transcend my trials. It is my hope and dying wish that youll give it a go-listen to missionary discussions attend a testimony meeting, read the book of mormon- for I know it will help you so.

Til we meet again
Christamae"
