SISTER who has posted almost daily stopped posting. She informed anyone following her thread that her husband and sister in law both had contracted covid. All three were living in the same house.

SISTER has been battling cancer and was surprised when her test showed she was not infected. A day or two later she posted she was coming down with some nasal issues as though she was getting a cold. That was a month ago.

Every day she checked in with us giving us a weather update, as well as telling us her plans for the day. She is sweet and the best of us. My fear is if she has passed it will go unnoticed. This thread is my attempt to avoid that.

I’m still holding hope she will surprise us with another post.

Well said, thanks T. I was always impressed by her diligence and determination. Did you send her a wave?

I did send her a wave but never heard back. My hope is she will show up and explain what's been going on. I'm afraid it isn't looking good.

A lack of attention to this thread strongly suggests to me there are too few who frequent Firefly fans anymore. Even if only to check in on occasion. Sister has been here since 2006. No one shows any interest in her or how she may be doing when it's posted she may not be doing well at all. I find that most distressing.

It was the same with Oonjerah when I posted this. Months ago, I had an email exchange with Oonjerah. I will not betray what was said. However, based on that and the fact that she isn’t responding anymore, I think she is gone. I hope I’m wrong.

I am strongly considering leaving this site as well once Biden and Harris are sworn in. I want to gloat before I go. I do enjoy my interactions with some here. However there are far to few good people here to make it worth more than a peek in. That's due to all the lunacy that takes place here.

I'll see...

IT'S NOT JUST HERE, IT'S EVERYWHERE...
Now you know why I don't have anything to do with actual humans in person that I don't already know. The untreated mental illnesses in this country are enough to make you vomit.

This place (and by extension the planet) can't be fixed at this point.

I don't know Sister. She's never spoken to me, though I've seen her around.
If you say she's a decent person, then it's a shame she's gone. People come and go here. I've known several on here that I'm pretty sure have already died of their cancers. Pretty sure in the next decade or so (according to family history) I will be joining them.

If you want to go, I won't try to convince you otherwise. I'll miss having an ally in RWED, but it is ultimately... your life.

Glad you two can finally bond with each other by making this thread about you.

I'd say a half dozen daily posters, another half dozen sometimes posters, and maybe less than a dozen lurkers that maybe post once a year.

Our page counts can get pretty high, but I think that could be because some of our regular posters have thread OCD, and we can get random search engine traffic as well.
There's a website that tracks where people here post from and a few years ago we had
2% of our traffic was actually Russian, but as soon as I posted that it disappeared...lol.

I think if we feel someone has passed based on what we know about that person, we should at the very least give them a shout-out. She had a full life of family and friends and she posted here almost daily in her thread. Her posts were sweet as was she. Again, I hope I'm wrong and she will be back to give us another of her weather updates. If not, let it be known the mark she left was all good.

I knew Sister as a founding member of the 76th Battalion... there may be other reasons she has been quiet, including that she wants to focus on her health, but I cannot find her posting anywhere. I have been absent from this site for ages, but I do check in from time to time... I made a lot of friends on here, many of them still very dear and loyal friends - I met one of my dearest friends who asked me to be Godmother to her sons, and another asked me to be her bridesmaid when she married... I met a boyfriend (past) and people whom I consider family on here! Never say never... if Sister is coping with health or other things in her life she might be having a sabbatical from Social Media. I hope and pray she is OK, and that her family is also doing well. This virus has been cruel and horrific to those who have had it severely. It has not been kind to anyone, honestly, and I pray we learn to live with it in a considerate and compassionate way, if only to honour those who have not survived the initial onslaught.

SISTER


To all concerned:

My beautiful wife, known here as Sister, Passed on October 27, 2021.

She did not have Cancer, nor did she succumb to COVID. She had suffered multiple strokes and seizures over the last 18 months. I held her in my arms as she took her last breath.

She is no longer suffering the indignities that each successive stroke brought. She was the light of my life, and will be missed beyond measure.

Sincerely and respectfully...

I am very sorry for your, and the rest of her family and friends loss. Thank you for sharing her with us and giving us this closure today. She was the best of us here, and I’m sure in your world as well.

I'm sorry to hear of her passing.
I do sometimes wonder about these relationships we make online and how we'd manage to find out what happened when someone goes quiet, or how folks who knew me would find out if something happened to me. So thank you very much for sharing the news with everyone.

It sounds like she was a wonderful person. You were blessed to have found someone and to be with somebody as kind as she always appeared to be on this site. Carry her light with you.
