I don't remember much more than the name, but I thought her friends would like to know.

@edgarblythe,
Read it on facebook. Another very sad news.

@edgarblythe,
Her username on Abuzz was temper. I recall thinking it was a negative, you know, bad temper. She explained to me in an email once that it was intended as a positive, you know, where you balance things.

@jespah,
As Temper, I remember exchanging messages with her. I had forgotten. Good person.

I always remember the gala parties Corrie hosted on Abuzz.

We were so innocent in a way. There was no way to attach photos so we described our outfits and the venue and the food and just everything about the party. She was a marvellous hostess Smile

I've just been looking at some of the online artwork she created in the last weeks of her life. Her imagination ... wonderful!

@ehBeth,
I remember where she lived and some of her struggles around the time we were on Abuzz. I remember her being highly irritated with those of us who left Abuzz. Her irritation was really because she loved it so (well, the good Abuzz).
Yes, a good person.

@ossobuco,
Yes, she thought Robert and I were killing Abuzz.

@jespah,
I'm sure she was angry with me as well (probably not as angry as at you guys, but definitely angry). Sigh. I did like her.

What a shame! I remember temper/Corrie very well. We chatted via mail for quite some time, and I was on her joke list until she discontinued it some years after Abuzz died. Rest in peace, Corrie.

This is sad. I think I still have a couple of pictures after she was finally able to walk a little.

When we were on ravensrealm, she and I traded tee shirts with local stuff on them. She had to make her own legend as Rotterdam wasn't that big on regional tee shirts.

Same deal with Rae and Wilso, by the way.

@roger,
I remember Rae well, too, from Abuzz, and her mother, Misti. Wonder how they are.

@ossobuco,
We exchanged emails regularly - until that time.

@mckenzie,
Neither I nor letty have heard from either since the second meeting in Cocoa Beach, circa 2004.

Wait. I had a call from Rae in 2007 after I got out of a hospital stay in 2007. Maybe it was a email - it's been a long time.

@roger,
I've seen Misti around FB intermittently. Haven't noticed her lately ... but wasn't looking for her either.

@roger,
Funniest phone call I've ever had with an internet friend was with you while you were in the hospital. Heavily medicated does funny things to Roger Smile

@ehBeth,
Yeah. I thought you were Gezzy, for one thing. And yes to the medication, too. I had a call about the same time from bipolarbear. Don't know if you've had the pleasure, but he made Robin Williams sound like Slow Talkin' Jones.

I had calls, cards, and email from others. About forty all told, and appreciated every one of them. I answered every one as far as I know, and when a2k went to the new format, the only email address lmur had for anyone on a2k was mine. I think it was my feeble clues that let him find his way back.
