In fall 2007 when we were collecting items to take to Colombia for the girls, she was unsure that she knew what they would like. We had some back and forth via pm about possible gifts but she still seemed unsure.

A package arrived from her in early December: wonderfully eclectic, delicate jewelry from India that she had found in a small shop. Bangles and bracelets and necklaces, accompanied by a note saying that she hoped that this was "OK". It was more than OK: it was perfect, and I told her so.

Her posts were great: very stream of consciousness. She will be missed.

Sad news. Condolences to her family and friends.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I always got a kick out of the way she would be making her points in a rambling post and then out of nowhere do a shout out to another member asking about some arcane detail that interested her. Sometimes I knew exactly what she was talking about. Other times I had no clue.

Then that happened.

Condolences to her family. She could really be pretty entertaining.

Gosh. For once, I'm at a loss for words. I'm actually welling up. Rest in peace, Rebecca.

I'm just bummed. We had a couple of really pleasant PM exchanges about odds and ends. I would have liked to have met her in person.
Thursday: This morning, I say to my wife and my girls, the waffles we face are real. They will not go away. Cornmeal waffles, buckwheat waffles, pumpkin waffles, chicken'n'waffles. The waffles we face are serious and manifold.

I have been remembering this man with some real vigor over the past couple of days. He was a miserable stinker, although now that he has gone on to his reward I can't say what I really thought of him. But if I'm any judge of these things, I'll bet he's hotter than Squeat Mungry. DebVanD

I'm so glad I got to meet her and must say that I feel a bit of guilt for not having gotten the next SoCal MF get-together planned in time for her to enjoy it with us.

Rebecca, we will miss you. Thanks for enriching our lives with your delightful posts and friendship.

RIP.
