Ah, so sorry to hear this news. She wrote the most beautiful, poignant memorial to her husband which was impossible to forget once read. I think you are right in being consoled by the thought of the two reunited.

The easier way to find authored threads is to hit the Green Figure under the member's badge then select "view threads"

Sad news! Diggindirt, your presence here will be missed.


RIP

(That was a lovely, honest, OP. I am sorry you lost your friend!)

I don't know why I feel like I lost someone I knew.

If you read my signature you'll two eulogies (such as they are) that I wrote for two of ATS' originals and guys I considered not only my friends, they were "brothers in arms" in the creation of the ATS we know and love today...

Members like Diggindirt are in the same category to me, she was a brilliant mind with an open heart, and absolutely part of what made this site what it is. Brilliance coupled with an honest and open heart will always be valued greatly in the forums where humanity meets and mingles to share ideas and explore concepts.

R.I.P. Diggindirt and enjoy the next chapter reunited with your loved ones.

Mark...

You said it very well... "From Kathy's online "family" at ATS." We really are a family. I see that every day, and consider myself honored to be accepted into this family, just as I am sure DigginDirt felt.

Like all families, we fight sometimes. OK, maybe at ATS we fight a lot. That's because there's something besides just DNA that binds us: we are all fighters at heart. But, again like all families, we care. That is, IMHO, what sets us apart from other online "communities." They're "communities"; we are a "family."

I didn't know DigginDirt very well. I do remember seeing her posts. She was well-spoken and intelligent, a tribute to ATS. She will be missed.

That's the downside of belonging to a family: when someone in that family makes that final leap into the unknown, it hurts. I have seen many great members like DigginDirt make that leap, and it always hurts. This time is no different. A part of ATS, and therefore a part of me, is missing.

I take comfort at times like this in something that was once told to me... there is an old Cherokee belief that no one is truly gone as long as someone remembers them. A part of them lives on in those memories. So I looked up some things:

DigginDirt authored 204 threads, receiving 332 flags from members who considered them worthy. She made 4,940 posts on ATS, receiving 13,606 stars. She received Staff Applause 54 times. That's a lot of writing, probably more than the average author produces in a career. That's a lot of approval and agreement from her peers. Those threads and posts are memorialized in the annals of ATS, and help serve as a reminder to remember her... and thereby keep a small part of her here with us. She will not be forgotten; she will never be truly gone.

We will always remember her. Maybe not as "Kathy," but certainly as "DigginDirt." She close that name; she didn't choose "Kathy."

So RIP DigginDirt. May you learn the truth we all seek in your new life.

Kathy will be remembered ( on ATS ) as not only being an intelligent soul, but of strong opinion and conviction. The World may have lost a lovely human, but the Heaven's have gained a new bright light!

RIP Diggindirt

I've seen her threads but I'm not sure if we ever interacted. Sad news though. RIP.

My condolences to friends and family over her loss.

I didn't know her or know her posts, but the world is never any brighter when a good soul leaves it.

Everyone that comes here must leave.

Thanks, Kathy! You taught a lot of people valuable things in your life.

May she rest in enternal happiness.

Its members like her that helped tipped the scale towards the light.

To those who knew her personally: I wish you much peace in your hearts.

OP, your kindness to take the time & energy to bring her passing ON to us & giving those of us who didn't know her a glimpse into her world is beautiful. Thank you. Much peace & love to you.

It's always hard to lose a friend. I've lost too many over the years...

But so long as we who remain behind remember them, they'll never truly leave us. We remember the laughter, the hugs, the tears, and, yes, even the disagreements between friends--no one ever agrees on everything.

I never really had any interaction with her, but I did read her posts, and threads with great enjoyment, and will miss her contributions.

Your eulogy was a sure sign that she did, indeed, leave a lasting mark in this world.
