    Poz, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I pray for comfort for you and your family.

    May we all be so well loved.

      I find it a shame that there is no question in our minds about whether or not to express our condolences to Poz, yet we refrain from doing the same for Amanda. She, too, is a member of our community who is mourning. I don't think it is an invasion of privacy for us to express our sympathies, and I don't believe that any sympathy we express can possibly increase her grief, whether she reads our statements now, in six months or never. Many things she encounters in the coming months and years will remind her of her brother, and there's no avoiding it, whether we are silent or not. So...

      Amanda, I wish Godspeed to your brother's soul and healing for you and your family in this time of grief.

          I know this may not help to ease the pain right now, but I truly believe that your mom has passed on to a much better place. I found this poem this morning and thought it was really beautiful so I decided I'd share it with you. So much sadness for Samanda this week. Hopefully all of our hearts and spirits will begin to heal soon.

          Spoiler:

          I find an old photograph
          and see your smile.
          As I feel your presence anew,
          I am filled with warmth
          and my heart remembers love.

          I read an old card
          sent many years ago
          during a time of turmoil and confusion.
          The soothing words written then
          still caress my spirit
          and bring me peace.

          I remember who you used to be
          the laughter we shared
          and wonder what you have become.
          Where are you now,
          Where did you go,
          When the body is left behind
          and the spirit is released to fly?

          Perhaps you are the morning bird
          singing joyfully at sunrise,
          or the butterfly that dances
          so carelessly on the breeze
          or the rainbow of colors
          that brightens a stormy sky
          or the fingers of afternoon mist
          delicately reaching over the mountains
          or the final few rays of the setting sun
          lighting up the skies
          edging the clouds with a magical glow.

          I miss your being
          but I feel your presence,
          In whatever form you choose to take,
          however you now choose to be.

          Your spirit has become for me
          a guardian angel on high
          guiding, advising, and watching over me.

          I remember you.
          You are with me
          and I am not afraid.

          ~Kirsti A. Dyer, MD, MS
          Thank so much for this Kat.*sniff* I have copied it and plan on using as part of my eulogy for her.

          Also, thank you all. You guys are truly helping me get through yet another terrible experience this year. I wish I could hug everyone in person but cyber hugs are the next best thing. (((((((((((((SAMANDANS))))))))))))))


          Deej, feeling better today I hope?

              My sincere condolences to SG1Poz. It's just hard to lose a parent, no matter how old, no matter what the circumstances.



              And, are the Samandans organizing any group expression for Amanda? People might consider a donation to Epilepsy Canada in memory of her brother, Steven Tapping with notification sent to Amanda Tapping, c/o Bridge Studios, 2400 Boundary Road, Burnaby, BC, Canada.

                  I don't exactly know where I stand on this. I don't think that anyone who expresses their condolences is wrong. However, for as long as I've been a fan of Stargate, it seems that AT has been relatively private about her family. And I can totally understand why. She has many, many fans who care about her and what goes on in her life, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she wants that to spill over into the lives of her loved ones.

                  I've met Poz in person, and she's been able to let us know how she's doing on the thread because of our community, which is so great. I have no problems with expressing my condolences to Poz, someone whom I really do know personally.

                  On the flip side, I don't really see Amanda Tapping as a member of our community. She's the reason why we've all come together and met each other on this forum, but very few of us here really know her personally like we do Poz.

                  That doesn't mean I think people shouldn't say what's on their mind about what's going on in AT's life, but I honestly don't think we can compare our closeness to a forum member to our admiration of AT.

                    Very well said. We love you Maria. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

                    (((((((((Poz)))))))))

                    And six months from now...if Maria or Amanda decide to take a stroll through memory lane and see what we said? Well...they'll see nothing but an outpouring of love and support.

                    On a somewhat related note, does anyone know what happened to Amanda's 200th Episode Special Outtake on SCIFI Pulse? It's not where it used to be.
                    It's not there anymore. They took it down before I had a chance to save a copy.

                    Not.

                    Are they even watching the same show?

                    Do they not understand that there is more to sex-appeal than bare skin, exposed boobs, and tight leather pants?

                    Oh wait, dumb question.
                    I don't get it either, guys. Even in baggy BDU's, Amanda looks hot. Very feminine. The men? They look incredibly hot.

                    The way they talk about the cast, you'd think the show was full of Pat's. [you know...Pat from Saturday Night Live?]

                          Spaz, I've only personally met a spec of the folks around GW verses Amanda, who of course has met many. I can only speak from my heart that even the support from cyber friends, has helped me deal with this and the loss of my husband of 24 years marraige, just two years ago. I need this extra boost of strength and support to keep myself emotionally stable during these times. Do you think they make sympathy and prayer cards to make folks in the same predicament sad? No, they are to reflect ones feelings of sorrow and support for the person they care for. I feel for Amanda not only due to the timing of our recent loss but because she has proven to be a caring and empathetic person of those she hardly knows. Why shouldn't we show her the same?

                                i will say one thing guys...ok two

                                and i'm not wanting this topic to derail this thread.

                                First of all, how did fans find out about STeven's death??? Some 'oh so kind' neighbor took it upon herself to plaster it on a public forum. Someone that had NO RIGHT AT ALL to spread such news. Because of this, a family's private grief was made public.

                                Consider how you would feel if some aspect of your private life was suddenly spalshed all over the net? I know how i felt when i went in for some medical tests and then my mom had to go and tell my sisters...who i wasnt gonna tell. I felt betrayed.

                                I'm not picking on anyone, i'm just saying.

                                Second...please, don't send stuff to Bridge about Steven. Remember just a few months ago when AT said that she'd gotten two boxes of mail from MGM from TWO YEARS ago??? She's not gonna be back on that set for weeks. Would you want a time bomb like that waiting for you?

                                If you wish to send donations to the epilepsy foundation, that's your business. If you wish to send it in Steven's name, again that's your business. But please consider the time delay before you send anything to Bridge.

                                It is also possible that the family will make a decision if they want a memorial fund. And if they do, i'm pretty sure it'll be announced on Kamil's site. You might want to consider waiting a bit and see what the family wants.

                                As i remember how it felt when i buried my grandparents, right now they might just want a bit of privacy to gatehr themselves, grieve and deal with things before they start thinking of other stuff.
                                Where in the World is George Hammond?
