I have cried and gone through each memory that I have of Rise'. We spoke frequently by telephone about everything and anything alternative on top of family, marriage, and all that life gives us both good and bad when one has challenges. She helped me through so very much with her grace and wisdom, kindness and understanding. She is the one who inspired me to paint the logo globes for both transplantbuddies and transplant friends. I will miss her so very much, as I'm sure so many others will. RIP blessed friend. Love Always Linda Mate.
