FISH MEMORIAL Fundraiser - HEART 9/11
« on: August 31, 2022, 09:41:55 AM »
I was not going to mention this as FISH was a very private person and liked to decide who she would share her information with.
FISH passed away in early July.

She had a few causes she cared greatly about. Her main cause is one she did not want to share publicly but she did share another one - "an organization the helps--9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS". I will cycle through various related charities for the foreseeable future to honor our friend FISH.


The ELLGAB tradition of giving continues! We will be donating 100% of our revenue to HEART 9/11 .

Thanks to @FISH for recommending "an organization the helps--9/11 FIRST RESPONDERS"

I am stunned and so saddened by this news. Such a vibrant lady. I can't help but believe even better awaits her
A donation to her special cause is a great remembrance. Thanks Bart
Слава Україні!  I wonder if she's still alive

I’m saddened, too. I communicated with her other than here.  We shared stories about our fathers flying B-24s in WWII - hers in the Pacific and mine in Europe.  She seemed to be a nice and intelligent person.
Merry Christmas

Wow.  I'm also stunned.  I enjoyed our interactions.  Especially our Pittsburgh/Philadelphia rivalry.  The banter was fun.  I always had a feeling she was a badass lady not to be reckoned with.  Also there was a pic she posted in Rikki's 100 years ago thread that showed a guy with a woman in a wheelbarrow.  I can't remember the context but it was funny.  Essentially me carrying her around on a night on the town or something.  Nonetheless...

I was hoping she just took a break from posting on the board but now we know.  Sad news.

I will miss getting "The fist of hate."

Oh no. Very sad to learn of this. She seemed to be a genuinely good, caring person and I always enjoyed communicating with her. From hockey, to B-24's [One of my Uncle's was a gunner] to that goofball dude over on Night Terrors and of course Rix's Old Time Radio she brought a great deal to the board. Like Shay, I was hoping she had simply moved on.

I have been wondering for some time now where and how she's been. Thought about PMing her mid August but did not want to be a bother.  I really enjoyed the few PM conversations we had, and I was always surprised that she would entertain any form of communication with the KSM guy.

I imagine her husband was there to welcome her into eternity.  :)

Goodbye, @FISH

I believe she passed away on the Fourth of July.  Now that's one patriotic move.  Rest in peace, dear friend.

I hope it was a peaceful transition without fear or pain. That's my wish for most people... Except Falkie...
Eh, nevermind...

Same here.  I really enjoyed her posts, very classy and down to earth.  Sad day.  My condolences to her friends and family.

In my earlier post that I had to edit, I refereed to FISH as Janice. Sometimes I referred to her as Joyce. She was always quick to correct me with a stern but gentle PM. *face palm*  :-[

PS  I wonder if she would have played the Nose game? Whatta you think @Rikki Gins ?

@KSM  No doubt in my mind that she would have loved playing the game.  She loved History, and would have probably done pretty darn good on historical noses.

Next NOSE GAME topic? HISTORICAL NOSES! Great FISH inspired idea!

This is so sad to hear. I really enjoyed FISH. She didn't suffer fools lightly and had a kind and generous heart. Thank you for letting us know Bart. I'm glad we can support some of her favorite charities.

Go in Peace, you are missed.  :'(
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I like to look at it like she did not want to ruin July 5th, a day that is historically much more important.

Like Shay, I was hoping she had simply moved on.

I was going to leave it at that but, as the weeks went by, I decided to do this instead.
