I can't express how badly I want this to not be true.

This is just fucking awful.

I'm so so so sorry Z.

Wow - I'm so sorry to hear of your loss

I have so many memories tied to TWW, and invariably people that I know IRL and don't have become part of those memories. I wish you luck getting through this difficult time... your wife touched many people's lives, even some that she never met IRL <3

Christine always seemed like a good natured person the few times I met her. Sorry for your loss zorthage. It sucks to see anyone pass away so young.

Shit.

I never met ambrosia1231 in real life. But she seemed pretty fucking awesome on here, and after reading every single reply in this thread, I wish I had met her. Even though we never met, about 3.5 months ago, she sent me a PM telling about a job on FB, but she had forgotten it. She told me she would keep her eyes out for other jobs. True to her word, she sent me a link about 2 weeks later with jobs in Wyoming. She also gave me a boost of confidence.

I know it may not sound like much, but when everyone is trolling the hell out of you, it's nice to get a little boost of confidence and some help. I never did tell her I appreciated it.

Christine actually sent me this i think it is worth sharing
http://dinosaurmusings.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/mourners-rights/

she is one of a handful of people on here that really helped me through my grieving process with my mom's death (via PM). i know that seems weird - to have someone you don't know on the internet be an integral part of something like grief. but it was really nice to have a neutral, unbiased, honest person to listen. i know my friends and family were tired of listening to me and i was tired of burdening them. it was nice to have someone who could walk away at any time or say "shut the fuck up you're being a whiner." or say whatever needed to be said. she didn't tiptoe around touchy issues and she didn't change her attitude for anyone or sugar coat anything. i want to elaborate on this more, but it makes me sad and it is hard to articulate how i feel...and probably hard for people to understand how someone on the internet could make such a difference in my life. but i really enjoyed our PM sessions. whether they were about serious issues...death/family/etc. or whether she was chatting to me about hot boys and alcohol

someday i will go back and read them all.

but even during her grandfather's death, her PMs to me expressed concern for others, rather than herself. she was worried about her dad. she was worried about her sister. never herself.

i really admired her courage to be honest and her determination to find happiness. it can be scary leaving and starting a new life, especially when that means separation from friends and your husband. i don't think i'd be strong enough to do it - but i hope, taking a page from her book, that someday i will be brave enough to just live.

thank you, christine.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Christine's family and friends and especially Matt.

I never did get the opportunity to meet her in person but we corresponded over PM and email a few
times...being the always inquisitive soul she was she wanted to know more about radio geek stuff just
to have the knowledge.

Matt: I wish you comfort and peace in this tough time.

I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. This is just so sad.

Never met her or really talked to her at all, but we shared PMs in the confessions thread and her confession was awesome and hilarious. She seemed like a really cool person.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. RIP.

Man...I am really sorry to hear this. I did not know her personally, but I can honestly say she is one of the TWWers whose opinion I respected. When I'm skimming a long thread she is usually one of the people whose posts I would stop to read. While I disagreed with a lot of the things she said I always thought she added insight and made me consider things which I may not otherwise have put much thought into. RIP ambrosia1231.

My post from the memories thread in Chit Chat...

Quote :
"I gave her some free burlesque tickets once and she came and picked them up. We talked only for a short time, but I could tell she was a genuinely nice person. She tried to give me an NCSU car flag too, but we could never work our schedules out to meet up. I wish our paths had crossed again before she passed."


So sorry for your loss.

Never really knew her, but definitely respected her as a counter-balance for much of the douchebaggery on the site. I know she often sided with me when it came to snake lessons here.

Keep the good memories alive.

A letter to Christine,


Christine, what’s up buddy? Just picture the planet, and imagine it’s yours, kid. Though we’ve talked on and off, it’s been a while since you and I had a long discussion like we used to back in the day. I fear that my letter to you might have arrived a bit too late. Nevertheless, I hope that this letter will be just like the time that we spent on this rock… never late, but always on time.

The skies are overcast right now, and it’s raining… fitting. And I’m sitting here in a staircase, looking at pictures, holding back tears for a friend that left us too soon. Holding back tears for a friend that started up a light inside of us in life, and kept it burning through any storm. You are that friend. A friend that that loved her husband, friends, and family, and that would never relent in her pursuit for happiness.

I’m selfish though. I’m happy you’re in a better place where you can keep being your bad-ass self, but I am still crushed by your absence; and wish you were still here with us to shine your light. Oh, baby... you…you lit this fire like no one else did. Lady, you had that kind of soul that would smack an entire nation in the melon, make them wake up, and knock them out of the orbit. It puts an end to all of the trivia, really. You were one of a kind.

Walk a mile in these boots that I’m standing in, right? You have left your indelible mark, both in our hearts and on this planet and we will never forget you.

As I wait for atonement…

-Jeff.

Here's my little eulogy.

For those of you who asked, my friend Christine Waddill has passed away suddenly with no warning and only speculation as to the cause. I met Christine while at NC State back in 2003 and she was a dear friend to me, especially during some dark times during which I had very few friends. Christine was a brutally honest, funny, & creative person. She never judged people for their quirks and flaws, rather she embraced them and welcomed you into her weird little world. You never had to wonder where you stood with her at any given time. She has been very influential in parts of my life and she is never very far from my thoughts. She enjoyed traveling and outdoor adventures. We were delighted to have her and her husband Matt over to go rafting on the Ocoee with us last year. I loved her dearly as a friend and I treasured our conversations. Some things just won't be the same without her and I don't have words to express how much she will be missed and remembered. Someone like Christine or "xtine" as she was known to many of us does not fade from memory quickly. If you are reading this please take a moment to tell the people that you care about, just how much they mean to you. It's so sad but if a young & healthy person like Christine could leave us so abruptly, it could happen to any of us.

Matt/Zorthage

I'm so sorry to hear this, I just now got back on TWW after a few days.

I never knew Ambrosia IRL, but i feel like i knew her on TWW. I last had a fairly extensive PM discussion with her a few weeks ago. it was personal, so i won't talk about the details here, but I'll PM you.

I'm deeply saddened.

condolences to you and everyone who knew her.
