Feeling Rather Sad Tonight

I wanted to post this. Though I am not sure if this is true or not, but I've been hearing that one of my Facebook buddies has passed away. I was thinking "Shoot! I was just getting to know her!" If it is true, it will make the second person I've known of on the internet, who has passed away in my life. I remember the same thing happened on the Pluba forum, to a woman who called herself Shih-happens. I think her real name was Christine. She died back in 2005, and one of her neighbors came into the forum and announced that she had passed away. Apparently the neighbor had known that Shih-Happens was going into the Pluba forum, and had some buddies in there. I don't really like to call internet buddies "friends", until I actually meet them, and we become friends. This friend told the forum that Shih-Happens died of cardiac arrest, and someone on the forum did say she's been suffering with heart problems all her life, so that was quite feasible. But I have no idea if it is true that this buddy, named Kelly, has really passed away. But I left a message of condolence on her facebook page anyway. I even told her I named one of my Metazoic mammals after her, an antelope. I called it Azema steini, in her honor. Well! Actually I named that animal months ago. But I am just letting her know it now, if she's there or not. The animal is not pictured on the site yet, but it will be soon. So far, nothing has been said about what she died from, and another one of my buddies looked in the obituaries for the area she was visiting, and has seen nothing.

Latest Development!

Yes, it turns out it is true. Kelly Stein has passed away. My Facebook buddy who was looking for it before finally found it. I'm going to miss her. We were just becoming good buddies. She told me she used to live in Portland, at about the time St. Helens erupted. I told her how we used to live in Toutle. Well, anyway, here is her obituary:



STEIN WITT - Kelly November 28, 2010, of Grand Island, mother of Nicholas and Aaron Witt, Evan, Oliver and Page Stein; daughter of Carole Tripi and the late Edwin Stein, Jr.; sister of Lori Sansalone and Tracy Peabody; aunt of Savannah (Paul) Getty, Kaitlin and Jenna Sansalone; niece of Charles and Karen Lenz. Friends may call Friday 7-9 PM at the KAISER FUNERAL HOME, 1950 Whitehaven Rd., Grand Island. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday at 10 AM at St. Stephen's Church. Memorials may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of WNY.
