RIP turtledove

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.

AllTruth says

but just as bad that she has young children

I feel sorriest for them, especially since it was sudden and she hadn't been expected to die. I lost my father when I was only 14 and for several years I was terrified my mother was going to die of a brain tumor as she had headaches all the time--as it was she lived to be 94.

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

I guess I watch too much Information Discovery, but I hope this doesn't turn out to be something only disguised as an "accident", as tragic as it is already.

I hope She's really alive and well, She's just ditching us because her social experiment to bring us altogether as one big huge homogeneous family failed.

Like a typical man, I deal with grief by trying to be useful. So in that spirit, Facebook does allow family members to close or memorize accounts of deceased users. A user can also specify what should happen to his account after his death. Here are the links.

My mother left my abusive,drunk, trash father when I was 12.He died when I was 14.
Mama lived to be 92.
If he was alive today I would slap the stupid out of him. I'll do it when I meet him in HELL.

I've seen the love of beer alone become the end all and be all of a man's life from early teenage years, his brother too.

Weed is no safe heaven either: Illicit weed can be contaminated with poisons to optimize profits, and good weed can lower your blood pressure until you pass out at an unfortunate moment and lose your life by happenstance.

safer suggestions for the effect of heaven on earth:
~ lovemaking
~ creative arts
~ exercise
~ gardening
~ service to others in need

She was a damned fine Patriot and a Classy Woman. My deepest heart felt condolences to her Family. If she profoundly touched me as much as she did, by making me sob and weep like a baby upon this terrible news. I can't imagine what they must be going through, after having the privlege to live with such a fine person day in an day out. For that person to now be gone from their life.

Amazing that she had such an impact on so many of us who didn't even meet her in person. It goes to show what kind of a person she was, and I can't imagine the suffering of those who were very close to her.

This is so sad. I feel very sorry for her. She deserved living a long life. I only met her that one time but I believe she was a righteous and very thoughtful woman. She cared. We had some long conversations by email and by phone, about all kinds of things.

My thoughts are with her husband and children, a boy and girl aged twelve. I think the children are a credit to Turtledove and her husband. They are well-mannered and good kids, just as one would expect. I hope you all know that many people are thinking about you today. You do not have to do anything, just know that we are.

So tragic. I knew someone who died young because they had an issue that kept them up at night, and ended up on an accident supposedly because if it (it was a bicycle accident where they ran a red light on a steep downhill through an intersection, blamed on them not being awake enough to do better).

I remain dismayed by the tragic loss of a true favorite on PatNet. Almost everyone liked her, and everyone should have.

I don't know whether a hospital had a role in what happened, but hospitals injure a substantial percentage of patients, and "medical misadventure" is now the third leading cause of death in the USA. If a hospital robbed us of Turtledove, I hope accountability will follow. Just to be safe though, I should remind the second amendment people to let the legal process take its course. Worst case scenario, when cannibal anarchy reaches San Clemente, AF/DBOAPD can serve up the hospital board for dinner, with yams and fava beans and a nice chianti.
