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.
