Last days.

MJ is hanging in there. These are our last days with her....and she remains amazing. What more can you ask?


  1. MJ is amazing. Please give her a big hug and tell her how much we all love her.


  2. Please give her my heartfelt "thank you" for sharing her spectacular presence with me and so many others. The heartache caused by her loss. will never outshine the majesty of her presence. Energy cannot be destroyed, her energy will sustain us all. God bless her lovng family. You know you are her "magic". Love and peace to you all. Linda Hernandez

  3. Amazing how she goes on teaching us even now--about something that 100% of us are going to have to do. Please keep telling her how grateful we are and how we'll be telling MJ stories years from now. And may we be as generous of spirit in our living and as present in our dying. Thank you, MJ and JR for sharing so much with so many.

  4. Hi MJ,
    I don't know if you will see this but I want you to know I am praying for you every day. I also want you to know that when I think of the woman I hope to become someday, I think of you. Thank you for always encouraging me since the moment you met me as an intern at WGF. You always helped me to believe in myself more, even in the smallest interactions. I remember years ago in a Catapult workshop day, watching you and listening to you speak and just being in awe of your honesty and authenticity and kindness. There was no BS with you ever! :-) Your faith in me helped me more than you could ever know just because it was coming from someone like you - so vibrant, smart and full of life.

    I love you, MJ! <3 You have taught me more than you know simply in the way you live life so effortlessly graceful and strong.

  5. We can ask no more.
    Please know that you can go in peace when you're ready.
    You gave to this world more than many. and when you leave, you will have left a mark on all who met you.
    And when you get to heaven, I'm counting on you to do a bit of negotiation on my behalf or else I have a sneaky suspicion I'm not going to make it to the right place.
    Big hugs and warm love MJ, Jonathan, Sam and Zoe.

  6. Dear MJ, you are an example for all of us of beauty, grace and love.
    You are in our hearts, we love you.
    Cousins Gerald and Michelle

  7. MJ--you remain an eternal flame in all of our lives--ever present, never forgotten.
    Our hearts are breaking for the amazing family you leave behind--
    xoxo Terry, dj, Ella, Lauryn xoxo

  8. MJ - I hear your voice as I write this. Your exuberance, elegance and belly-laugh will be your ongoing signature. JR, Sam and Zoe, our family send love to yours. You are all in our thoughts. Marlene

  11. It has been an honor and blessing to get to know MJ. MJ, if you can hear this, please know that you have made a significant impact on my life as well as the lives of so many others. Your passion, caring nature and ever present support gave me the confidence to grow as a professional and a human being. My heart aches for you and your family. I will continue to wear my WWMJD bracelet with pride. Thank you for gracing us with your presence...you are one-of-a-kind.

    Wishing you and your family peace, serenity and eternal love.

  13. Beautiful valentine's gesture yesterday when MJ's nurse arranged for MJ and Jonathan to be serenaded by a violinist, followed by a family shabbat service and the campfire sing-along. MJ is and will always be loved.
