  1. Sorry to hear this, but sadly when this illness dictates that rest is needed, then individuals have no choice but to comply. Wishing Beth a speedy return to a better place. xx

  2. Hope you are able to rest up and feel better Beth. TY again for all the hard work you’ve both been doing for us. GL in finding a good, soporific, book =)

  3. Sincere best wishes to you, Beth. We remain deeply grateful for your generosity and support for all of us patients. We will be thinking of you and wishing you the very best.

    Dear Beth,
    I applaud you for taking care of yourself and making this difficult decision. It is one we all face each day one way or another but it is especially painful to give up what means so much to us and others. Thank you for all of your wonderful efforts on our behalf and for demonstrating the difficult wisdom we all need to exercise in our own lives. You are teaching us all by doing this. May you be as well as possible and enjoy life! Best, Esther
