@Walter Hinteler,
Really? I assumed she had, as she was a member of ravensrealm.

She had a mailing list for her friends, after Abuzz. I was on it for a time, until I changed emails. I don't recall what she emailed now and then.

She and I shared e-mails until somehow we lost contact. A very nice person and I regret not reconnecting.

Corrie and I wrote to each other weekly, ever since the end of Abuzz. I'd send her a note every Sunday morning and she always responded a few hours later. She was a talented computer artist, a devoted dog owner, and she loved Rotterdam.

Her e-mails stopped abruptly; it wasn't like her. I couldn't figure out how to find any information on her whereabouts or condition. I'd search her name off and on for a couple of weeks but nothing ever hit. I only had one old e-mail address from another old Abuzzer — I wrote to see if she knew anything; no response. And I'd forgotten all about A2K; I should have gone here right away. So her disappearance was a mystery; I was worried but I also had no trouble convincing myself that she'd just grown bored of our friendship so I left it at that.

Totally unrelated, I was trying to tie down some personal chronology and wondered exactly when Abuzz shut down. Did a search and brought this page up — and finding this thread solved the mystery.

Such a good woman, fun-loving and kindhearted who overcame personal obstacles and brought happiness to others — goodbye Corrie, sorry to have been late to your sendoff.
