RC and family, I am so sorry for your loss. She was and will always be a special lady to me. She reached out to me through emails when I was struggling with my health and I'll never forget her acts of kindness.

Linnea was a very rare person. Sweet, kind, and tough when it was needed. She loved this forum and it's members very much. I enjoyed watching her go round and round with the cerebrally gifted friends we bunk with, yet she'd keep it down to earth for us simple folk too. She was so deep and wise.

Take care Linn, enjoy your ride.

Post to post'
Hello', or should I say Arrrr' to my fellow pirates of the Sea...

It's close to 40 days and 40 nights since we have gotton the word of Linnea's passing'.......
When I read of this, I, like most, went into shock...
I'm still there....
As I write...
For myself, when informed, went to my own Mom and told her what had happened to our beloved Captain of the Fantastic Forum..
She knew that I had been on this forum for over a decade, myself, and she knew of Linnea and liked her very much...
At the time my Mom was among the living, but as I make this post, my Mom passed exactly a week after Linnea...

So..... after living with my own Mother for 15 years, as RC' shared a home with his Mom, Linnea, for about the same amount of time.
Here we find ourselves in the same boat.

I reached out in a e mail to one of her dear friends, Elk' of the KON.
And here are some of my thoughts regarding Linn, to him.

"YES' devastating for our hearts and minds to embrace the thought of losing Linnea.
I can't go there in my mind, as yet.
I know how you feel.
It's just too much emotional heartache.
Especially one after the other.

I feel we will never get over this, but hopefully we will get through it together.
And as a group, we will lessen the pain.

I loved, and still love Linnea, and the memories she has given.
She is one very spectacular soul and now in pure spirit form.
I know we will miss her presence and her beautiful thoughts.
~BUT~

Now she is in God's hands, and God will see to it that she will still ride those waves, and as receiver's.... U's, Us... We, the one's who truly loved her will pass on the message's ....
As we all' are messenger's from God the Father"

~~~~~~~

Well, I have been waiting for a message, but because of technical difficulties.. (Too many tears, etc.) I have not been able to catch a wave, as yet...
But' in great hopes, as "Somewhere in Time" I, will get an all clear' signal....

In the meantime, I want to send my Deepest Sympathy to US all', and especially RC' and his family...

As Linn often said... 'Into the Mystic' she rides.....

Love to you all~

Jeri

sad news..so sorry

Post by Dale O Sea » 06-07-2011 01:06 PM

A very touching post Jeri. I'm so sad for the loss of your mom..and so close to Linnea's passing. My deepest sympathies to you. This makes it all the more difficult, I know. My dad passed last summer and it makes dealing with Linnea passing harder..and it was almost a year ago..July 1.

Good seeing you, Jeri, and when you are able or feel like it come on back and see us again. :)
I was thinking of you the other day, in fact. Worrying, a little, actually.

Whoa... what a thread.

@ Vigo - I agree totally with your assessment of Linnea, and in fact had a similar experience.

She saw great value in your presence upon the decks of her ship, as do we.

@ Wave - Your post has had a deeply stirring effect. Thank you.

@ Dale - my condolences on the loss of your father.

Yeah, Linnea was more than a forum mod - that's for sure.
For if it profit, none dare call it Treason.

Jeri , Dale and RC, I'm so sorry for the pain I know you are both going through. What you wrote in the email Jeri is so beautiful. In God's hands is where we will all gather one day, and the tears of sadness will be gone.

So good to read you Jeri, my friend :hug:

I am so sorry to read about the loss of your Mom. :sad:

Yes, we have suffered many profound, significant heart breaking losses within our global first community which was here on the FF before "fragmentation"

Linn, who brought us all together in the first place, the passing of Joe, Rick/Captain Beyond, Devastated, perhaps gormworm who we have no clue as to what or where he may be....we all have a huge history here and elsewhere.

I raise my glass and heart with thanks to them all..their soul and spirit who tried to light the path to truth for all of us.

I think it is time to remember why we all came together and forget our differences, past and present.

Now if Linn was here, she would accuse me of hyperbole as she did many times in the past...and that's o.k....guess that's just who I am.

We all are a relatively small group of very unique souls.

Only united we stand...divided we all fall.

Let's always remember that our collective quest for truth, the answers we all seek and to what brought us together in the first place.

I hope and trust that hasn't changed...
