    Default Enough Already!!! UNCLE!! Death of yet another former rfc poster

    Lynn Gifford has passed.
    Blake Murphy has passed.
    Helle Gaare Paulsen passed yesterday. She was 46. Breast cancer.

    Sonofabitch!

    Longtime rfc posters will have to go back about 12 years to remember
    Helle, one of our two "Scandinavian authorities." (Katrine Someone was
    the other.) I always loved when they posted to each other in Norwegian
    to clarify with each other the finer points of a response. Helle lived
    in Tromsų, Norway (north or the Arctic Circle) and was a total delight.
    Although we never met f2f, I am confident we will meet in another realm
    someday. She leaves a legacy of joy, dignity, integrity, warmth for
    others, and great courage. She set a high bar for good character and I
    will miss her. She was preceded in death by her infant daughter Sunniva
    and is survived by her daughter Elise (I'm guessing Elise is about 17-19
    now), parents, and brother.

    I really liked her, I remember she lost her daughter. Very hard.
    RIP, Helle.

    Maybe because we tend to know who posts here and there is almost
    always someone who is in touch with another one (the jerks excepted)
    in person or in email. We tend to notice when some is no longer here.
    In many other newsgroups I imagine that when people aren't posting it
    is assumed they just quit if, anyone notices.

    I remember Helle, was a long time ago. And I always thought the Norse

    That may be true for some groups, but not generally for the ones I
    frequent. Each has a number of core folks, many have met each other in
    person at various times and they keep in touch. When one of those
    regulars passes it is well noted, when one of those regulars is ill, or
    has close relatives who are ill it is also noted.

    I see your "Sonofabitch!" and raise it a "Holy ****!".

    RIP Helle and Blake. You will be missed.

    I remember posting with Blake Murphy a few times. Who knows,
    mabye in some strange way posting within a group to someone who is
    about to die has some sort of contagious aspect to it. Hope not.
    They say the good die young. I guess that means I'm no good, or at
    least well on my way to being that way.

    It could be genetics. It could be that I take walks and drink
    lots of water and eat really well. But whatever it is, it aint gonna
    last, because sooner or later we all gotta go. Besides, I'm only 64.
    To me that seems old, but by today's standards I guess it's not. I
    appreciate the ornery compliment (I'll take it as one), but the truth
    is, aside from the water and the walks and the good food I am a very
    lazy person who lies around a lot and works just enough to pay rent
    and eat. For those who like work I suppose it's not a killer. For
    those like myself who despise work, it is a killer. I don't think I'm
    going to last much longer. But I'm not afraid of death, only that
    there is no such thing and we have no control over what we come back
    as, whether it's a human being again or a lobster or a cockroach or a
    slug or just electricity looking to find it's way into a wire the way
    our life force tries to find some kind of body to climb into. We are
    food. But we are always hungry. The whole world revolves around
    food. That and breathing.

    Though it is very sad when the regular posters here pass away, there
    *are* many here who count themselves lucky to be survivors.

    I got about 10 years up on you and I STILL think I'm not old! Depends on
    one's perspective I guess. General health too, of course.

    I'd say it revolves around reproduction. Without that facet of life, all
    the rest become moot after a generation or so.

    As the old saying goes, "If your parents didn't have any children, then
    there's a high probability you won't have any either".
