never disappears for death is a non-event.
I have merely retired to the room next door.
You and I are the same;
what we were for each other, we still are.
Speak to me as you always have, do not use a different tone, do not be sad.
Continue to laugh at what made us laugh.
Smile and think of me.
Life means what it has always meant.
The link is not severed.
Why should I be out of your soul if I am out of your sight?
I will wait for you, I am not here, but just on the other side of this path.
You see, all is well.

|We miss you Hawth. Wish you
could meet our new baby girl, but know that you're smiling on us from
up in heaven.
|Miss you, Hawthorne Hunt.

grateful to have had you as her father.
Julie Robertson Hunt
|May she be resting peacefully
with the angels!
|I only know Elizabeth because I
know her dad.
I never met her and yet, she touched my life.
He life inspires me yet today. What a gift that was on his earth for a short
time and taken too soon because clearly heaven needed her spirit and soul.
You are in my thoughts and prayers today.
Frank! Happy Memories of Hawthorne. I wonder where she would be today
if she was still with us? Probably have been to WK Amsterdam
back working in Portland by now, or so I wish.
Hope all is well.
|In such a brief time, she left
an indelible impression of beauty, love and strength. All the things
you mentioned, Hawthorne seemed to do so easily. Thanks for the

you Hawth, but I will one of these days soon.

|On a day when 8 years ago a dear
friend passed, I would like to encourage you to love madly, do great
things, live kindly, be brave.

|I've just looked through her
pages. She was very beautiful and very talented. Death usually sucks. .
. but especially so, in her case. Hugs.
artist musician goofball smarty pants best friend.. i think of you
Gilly Ann Hanner
you for sharing with us your unforgettable and remarkable daughter
Hawthorne. She has to be smiling from Heaven seeing how many people
remember and miss her so much.
this is strange for me. I only knew you from Helen
I remember having the biggest childhood crush on you. I
playing with you in that magical place of jungle gyms and art
supplies. I was only about 7 years old. But you
lifelong impression. I remember missing you when I left, and
thinking about you well into my teen years. Sweet memories
life as a child. A few years ago I "Googled" you out of
and came across your memorial page. Can't remember the last
I cried so hard - largely because your loss was so magnified by the
deep gap it left in so many people's lives, as evidenced by their
heartfelt stories. I
even reached out to your dad out of the blue who was kind enough to
reply back. Never did call him because it felt weird, but
the off-chance you might read this, wanted to know someone never forgot
those of you who knew her much better than I did, sorry for your loss,
and sorry if I've intruded.
Bye beautiful girl, from the little boy who never forgot you.
Note: These links were sent to me, I thought that it was
that Hawthorne's art was for sale - on eBay no less. Both
seem to be gone as of 12.23.2010
said a lovely thing about my painting once; when we were in Paul
Missal's class.. it was kinda funny and poignant at the same time. you
made me sorta nervous becuase you were pretty, and smart, when your
young its like that, anyway I never forgot what you said, and although
I never really got to know you, we talked a couple of times. I was a
classmate learning about art with you and everyone else there at that
time. You become connected with the memories. It stays with you.
So there you are.
