It is with a broken heart that I wish to let you all know that ATS member and my dear friend Iamschist passed away peacefully on August 3rd.
She had been ill for a short while but was a strong woman who maintained her kind spirit and sense of humour through difficult times and illness.
Myself and Iamschist (Bonnie) met here on ATS several years ago. Just participating in a random thread, I said something
silly, she PM'd me with a LMFAO and we started chatting from there and just clicked.
We corresponded almost daily, became close friends and shared our stories, we advised each other and learned from each others point of view and
differing life experiences. She became my dearest friend and confidant and even though I shall miss her with all my heart I am so happy that she came
into, brightened and enriched my life so much even for these short few years. It was my privilege.
She really enjoyed being on ATS and she spoke very highly of some older members and loved to learn and share experiences and music.
I am posting this to inform her friends on ATS (and she had many) of her passing who would otherwise not have heard.
Her health declined of late and she became unable to write to me although I kept in constant contact. I hadn't heard at all from her in a while
until her friend contacted me with the news I had been expecting but dreading.
I raise a glass to you my dear sweet American lady,
Thanks for the time we had.
She was smart, funny and tough as old boots.
And I loved her.
I am so sorry to hear that. I sent her a message the other day checking up on her and wondered why she never responded. I guess that explains it. I
know that she'll be missed by many. She was funny and seemed like a really nice person.
Very, very sorry to all those who knew and loved her. I did not, but you have my sincerest sympathies. Losing a beloved friend is devastating. I'm
sure her influence on your lives was a wonderful one that will be missed sorely.
This has truly made me feel sadness. She seemed like such a wonderful person. She will be missed.
Whenever I talked, here, about some of my real life stresses and woes, she always would send a short message of support and positivity to me. Nothing
big, just a "This will pass, it will get better" when it really was needed.
