    Sorry to hear that. The loss of one diminishes us all.

    It feels like the old WF really is gone now.
    :borg:

    (Tried to find an emoticon sad enough, and it was surreal how many she added to the library)

    I saw her sister's (I guess) post just after Bonz posted. I've been worried for a while about her, as she pretty much went completely quiet on Facebook around six months back. Very sad news.

    This is tough news. She's dealt with so many health issues over the years, and fought as hard as anybody could. Still, it's a race we all lose eventually. RIP. :sorrow:

    She fought the good fight, as no one thought she'd make it as long as she did. As Diacanu said, a big part of our history is gone.

    Speaking of, I moved this into the Green Room, and while I realize Tamar was...,polarizing at times, I do ask that we all be respectful in this thread and keep the grudge wank outta it.

    This is such bad news. My condolences to family and friends. I knew Tamar for over 15 years but we never met IRL. We shared a common interest but it became much more. We had many words for each other over the years but now I am at a loss. RIP my friend.

    You may have an orange slice. :mewa:

    I always laugh over those orange slices but when I typed that one above....THAT made me shed a few tears for Tamar. I just don't know why but it just hit me. We're never gonna forget each other. Not the core members. We know each others lives. We grew up together.

    She was sick I think the whole time I was on WordForge (since 2003). Bummer, I'm sure she fought bravely to the end. Very unfortunate. And not to derail this but Dayton3 had a very close call now too. It really makes you think. :(

    Yes, it makes me extra thankful for Dayton's recovery. Losing two WF originals the same week would have been too much. :(

    Dammit, I liked her. :(

    Got a ways to go till any new eps, but I'll write a Doctor Who ep thread in her honour. She always posted in those, and I was glad to help send her some unofficial assistance back in the days when the BBC didn't show NuWho in America.

    I know this was switched from the Red Room and we're supposed to play nice but...

    I gotta say that this is all Techman's fault. That's right! If he had lived then we would have all lived forever! But after him it was like friggin' dominoes!

    Freakin' dominoes!! Get a bot to keep you alive on the internet. So I don't have to know. I'm gonna live forever in cyberspace.

    (type...type...ahhh, I got nuthin'! I'm turning into Diacanu. Red pill or blue pill)
