    "Where have you gone, TXmarinemom?"

    Pam, I know you are hurt - I would be too - but there's a whole lot of friends on this site that want you here. Please reconsider the boycott.

    Yes, Pam-- we both want and need you as part of the forum. You have been such an integral part of it... and not just for entertainment purposes, if that's what you're thinking. Yes, you are entertaining. That is an added perk. Many of us need a good therapeutic laugh to buoy us up... But even if you weren't, we would still love and appreciate you for who you are. You are helpful in so many ways-- with research and, of course-- list-making, tenderhearted and sometimes necessarily brutal/truthful in many responses, seeking the best for so many... You have shown again and again how caring you are, how supportive you can be, and even how vulnerable you are at times, revealing how human we all are. You have given so many people HOPE to get through this. You are a delightful person and we love you! So please reconsider about leaving...

    Pam,
    Ditto what Susie Bee and trulyaries have said. Susie, you certainly summed Pam up well. She's entertaining and informative and God knows, we enjoy her for who she is. Direct. Honest. Entertaining. Compassionate. Please reconsider your decision Pam.

    Pam,
    I also hope you decide to stay. You have been such a valuable member of this board, offering help, hope, insight, compassion and yes, humor. I hope you don't allow one or two people to chase you away. You would be sorely missed if you left.

    Pam,

    I've been in Philly all day for David's checkup - and this is the first post I am responding to. PLEASE stick around!! You've been SOOOO supportive and helpful to so many folks, including ME. It would be a shame as well as a sad day for the forum if you left.

    Why would Pam boycott? What happened? I enjoyed her posts so much!
