RIP turtledove

By MMR following x   2016 Nov 15, 2:44pm 37,078 views   246 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


I just heard some extremely sad news that turtledove passed away recently, quite possibly over weekend. Had been in touch with her regarding a family issue and I got an email from her husband today indicating that she had passed away before I had a chance to reply . I am not privy to any other details.

Was very thoughtful of her husband to contact me, given his level of grief and work responsibilities in light of the bad news. She was a kind generous person who asked her husband to reach out to me on deathbed to meet up and discuss our case with us.

Personally, I'm in shock, as it seems to have happened this past Saturday or Sunday.

I don't want to call. If this is all true it just makes it worse for the family to have her phone go off every few minutes, and they may not turn it off because it could be someone important. If Quigley and MMR say it is so, I tend to believe it, but I can wait.

Orange County is largely Republican.

well, san clemente is, and up the coastline. irvine has turned to the dark side - too many immigrants and university twats.

Quigley is sad says

Sadly, I have to confirm MMR's news. Her FB account wasn't much used, but her friend has a huge post from yesterday with the news. She leaves behind two 12 year old girls, a husband, and a lot friends who will miss her dearly.

She will also be missed by many on Patnet.

I know I will miss her. 😥

That is very sad. prayers for the family-just very, very sad. Those poor kids-12 years old. The ways of the universe are a mystery to us.

The basis isn't the single post on her page but rather her husband emailing me about my personal family issue. He then mentioned that his wife passed away, before I got a chance to reply back to her email

Big loss to the community.
I didn't correspond with her privately that much, but we did share a few emails back and forth. She was a very genuine and generous person.

I remember Turtledove talking about the pleasure she had with her children. Her joy sent a healing energy, even over the internet. I always thought of her as a healer after that, even with the jousting.

She loved and she was and is loved, which is more than can be said for a lot of people.

It goes to show we never know when our number will come up, folks.
Especially with Trump's fat little fingers near the red button.
Enjoy life today.
Personally I'm hoping to stroke out before getting too senile. But we don't get to choose.

I second that. Perhaps a cause she is passionate about?

Was really hoping this thread was just a 'vast right wing conspiracy', a hoax, and not true. Traded a few emails with her. Very nice lady, as all have already said.
Wishing you well in the beyond TDove. Wishing the best for those close to you.

Now I'm curious to know what "accident" happened at home.

http://livingwithmyhome.com/diy-do-it-yourself/preventing.aspx
The 5 leading causes of death from home accidents are:

Falls
Poisonings
Fires
Suffocation and choking
Drowning

I'm pretty sure she would not accidentally poison herself, and I'd rule out fire as well since I bet they would have mentioned that. If we know if she had a pool or not we could maybe rule out drowning.

Major downer.

It's bad enough she was only in her 40s, but just as bad that she has young children.

She struck me as beautiful, intelligent, strong-willed, fiercely independent, yet forgiving.

I'm bummed.
