    Em was genuine and just loved Jesus. She is missed.

    Em was great and will be missed here, and certainly in her physical community. Sad day for us, but glorious for her.

    Sad. But glad she is experiencing Eternal Rest.

    Em always made a point of telling me and others that she was praying for us. She’ll be missed.

  9. Dan from Georgia says:

    Sad news, but happy for her homegoing!

  10. Interested Bystander says:

    Thank you for investigating and confirming that she’d gone home.

    I noticed her disappearance gradually. No more comments ending with, “Don’t know tho, do I?”

    You made it, Em. You made it.

  11. Tim says:

    I’m so sorry to read this, but so glad Em is with the Lord. She was an encouragement on many occasions.

    Rest, Em, and thank you for uplifting us, one and all.

  14. Reuben says:

    I can’t think of a person I squabbled with more here. Lots of memories. I know she found peace eternal.

  15. Linnea says:

    Michael, I’m so sorry to hear this. Em was respected in this community and is surely with the Father.

  16. Nonnie says:

    She was a treasure.

  17. filistine says:

    Em was a gem. She said her piece, yet was open to learning and correction. Happy her sojourn is over and the tent is exchanged for home.

  18. Lynne Ziker says:

    Em’s daughter here. She loved you all and enjoyed all the back-and-forth. She would frequently come to me very concerned about “so-and-so” and was personally very troubled when she thought she might have offended someone here, even though she always strove to speak the truth in love. Her real name is Miriam. She was a woman of prayer. You know, the kind that never ceases praying day or night. I know she always kept you all in her prayers with great fervor and with a pure heart.

  19. Alan says:

    Thank you Lynne,

    Em was so deferential within this space. She wrote and spoke with conscience. She ennobled us. It is not surprising that she was noted by her own daughter as an intercessor. Thank you for stirring us again by Miriam’s memory. We will not forget her.

  20. Michael says:

    Thank you, Lynne.

    There is a strange emptiness that befalls us when we lose a person of fervent prayer.

    It was my honor to be named in a lot of her prayers…and I do believe they were part of sustaining me through the years…it is odd and a little scary to know she is not here anymore…how much more so for you and her family.

  21. Josh says:

    Lynne, thanks for chiming in. Your mom meant so much to so many of us.

  22. Captain Kevin says:

    Lynne, your mom was very much loved here. She is missed. Blessings to you and your family.

  23. Lynne Ziker says:

    Thank you all, very much.

    While I was not part of this community, I kind of was, because she told me about you all almost every day up until this last year when her health was slowly declining.

    Please know that even that even though her death was unexpected (she took a hard fall that even a twenty-year-old would have a tough time recovering from), she lived fully up to the very end.

  24. Xenia says:

    It breaks my heart to think of dear Em falling so hard.

  25. Lynne Ziker says:

    Xenia, it broke my heart, too. But even with her fractured skull, she was not in a lot of pain. She was surrounded by love from family and her medical team, and went to the Lord peacefully.

    Her palliative care doc came in and told her what happened and how severe her injury was. Her response was to grasp his hand and say, ‘Oh. I’m so sorry.’

    That was my mom.

    I was fortunate enough to come in and spend the night with her on her last night in the hospital. I brought her her favorite milkshake and she took four spoonful’s of it while mouthing the words ‘good!’ I played her her favorite music from Redeemed Quartet and she passed quietly the next morning with angels surrounding her. Of that I am certain.
