I found Angela to be a very strong and dignified and caring woman.
I am profoundly saddened and will memorialize her in my heart.

Ditto,
She's the one who got me to give them a good listen to and made me a convert.

All our lives are fuller for having known Angela.
I hope to hold her wisdom and humor in my heart for the rest of my life and live with honesty, love, and irreverence.
I agree. I feel that I am a better person for knowing her. I share grief with the group for the loss of a wonderful person.

Not sure which lyric fits better right now... Queen's "she's my best friend" or Miss Congeniality's "she's beauty and she's grace, she's miss united states" as the stage is crumbling around the pageant.

I enjoyed reading her comments, especially the way she cut the crap, and i'm beyond amazed at how many of her imaginary friends have come out to support her, her family (including/especially Nick) and her RL friends. I can only dream of having that many friends - real or imaginary! She faced these last few months, weeks and days with a special grace that i hope we can all learn from. Thank you, Angela and crew, for sharing this journey with us...

God speed. See you on the other side!

Cycle. It's been awhile. For those who don't know, and in honor of Angela who was brave and would never let a bully get to her, It's me -- Terri/Mary/Typo Terri.(Yes PEllen you were correct but I didn't want to say just then.) We were wondering how you were.

I'm sorry that it's under these circumstances we are hearing from you. Hope everything is okay with you.

People on here do touch our lives. Like Angela had in a big way.

Well, that's sad news. Though she twice publically wished for my own death (that I know of) and often displayed undue, anti-Ferrerman sentiment, she wasn't that bad of a person at all. Really, she was a good liberal and that's to be appreciated in times like these when others are so obsessed with hate. She was a pretty good imaginary person and probably a nice one in real life.
Notwithstanding the judging icons, a grudging encomium is still praise. Good.

<quoted text>Well, you sure sent me to the dictionary! But, I learned a new $20 word. I don't fret the icons. They bare the same whether I post a "grudging encomium" or a good Steely Dan video. It's just someone's sad, anti-Ferrerman sentiment.
So, Toj is Teri. I had that thought at one point but "Toj" tricked me by NOT displaying strong, anti-Ferrerman sentiment! Well played, Teri!
In reality, you sometimes make very excellent points. Unfortunately, many times the posts with good points are bathed in scathing comments/opinions to someone/something and then the good point gets lost.

I am learning to try to stay on the subject matter and mostly ignore posts that do not add anything helpful to people or the discussion. It's still a work in progress, however.

I rarely visit this site but for some reason, I decided to look in and see what you folks have been up to. I am so sorry to hear about Angela. Even though I never met her in real life, I always enjoyed reading her comments on the Amy and Abby columns. She seemed to be a lovely person I'd have liked to know in "real" life as opposed to simply online. I send my condolences to all of you. I will certainly miss her comments in Topix.

My condolences to Nick the family and friends. I did notice that Redhead had not been posting much lately and was sad this morning to hear of her passing. She was a real pistol and I am going to miss her posts.

<quoted text>Well, yeah. But, you have to look around the room sometimes. It can be a hostile crowd. I tend to give better than I get when it comes to that and that often lingers with some.
It is a hostile crowd here and everywhere you happen to be because few enjoy being around a worthless pos like you.

In honor of Angela's not-technologically-inclimed memory. Someone (cough Tonka cough) please tell my why I keep getting a "we can't play that video please try another one or try back later" message from Netflix. I talked to netflix, didn't fix the problem. Reset the tv/uninstalled/re-installed the netflix app. It's a Samsung smart tv with its own wi-fi.
