    I strongly suspect that it will take quite some time to get used to her
    not being in "our family" anymore.

    Yes, no question about that. She will be missed.

    Mark,

    Yes, no question about that. She will be missed.

    She was one of very few ladies in the message thread...and she was
    wise beyond her years...not to mention she had a wicked sense of humor.

    Old wisedom claims:

    "If somebody on IRC identifies as a child or a woman, it is a federal agent called Steve."

    I guess it was not 100% correct for Micronet :-)

    I haven't used IRC in a long time...and rarely mess with the messenger
    client on the BBS. I'm lucky to have enough time to logon, download the
    QWK Mail, make replies, and upload them. Time for the doorgames is
    limited at best.

    Yeah, and I was impressed by the fact she still was using a DOS QWK offline message reader. That is some dedication!

    She never cared for Windows, and her husband, Richard, was her computer
    guru. I was the same for my late Mom...and the BBS is now on what was her computer.
