My pal Mark (Springer) told me about aquarius1 some time ago and so I would check in from time to time and read her comments, along with other
stuff....She was obviously sharp witted, took no prisoners, was combative but also congenial..she had the kind of mind this type of ongoing
conversation desperately needs.
On the same night that she died, a friend I've known for 25 years also succumbed to cancer here in Las Vegas, so my attention was focused here, and,
as you might expect, my emotions have been raw and exposed. Now that a few days have gone by and the initial grief has subsided, I realize that I was
lucky to have known this guy (Paul Hoggatt) at all, and in that same vein, I think we were all lucky to known our ATS colleague aquarius1, even if
our familiarity with her was based solely on what she wrote, the opinions she expressed here on these pages.
I never met her but will miss her nonetheless. I hope the outpouring of support from her ATS friends is of some comfort to her family during what
must be a rough time.
