Our friend and frequent poster died on the 27th. She had been fighting a long battle with cancer, and was in fact in remission.

She was getting Surgery to have a drain removed that was causing excruciating pain. Her heart stopped, they revived her and got her to ICU, where she had 2 more heart attacks, this time fatal.

She was a prolific poster, loved to 'scrap', but she was also one of the best friends.

She leaves behind two children, and many Topix posters who are spending the better part of tonight crying. I know I am.

Rest In Peace, my friend and sister, Roadrunner.

I really just have no words at the moment - just too sad. RIP my friend - my funny, outspoken, naughty, fierce and fearless friend.

Breaking my streak of not posting on Topix for about 2 years to just say how much I'm going to miss Roadrunner. She was my friend, even if we never met, and I loved her. <3

The same here, Maia. She was one of the bravest people I've ever known. And to those who ever wished ill upon her for her outspokenness, I hope you choke on your evil words...I imagine that heaven is rejoicing, and that makes me smile.

I never really posted with Roadrunner but did run across her from time to time. I felt sadness this morning for her family when I read of her passing. That sadness went beyond her family...it also went to those of you that called her friend.

So often you hear that Topix is not the "real" world but IMO the friendships and the bonds that we create with each other through our words are just as real and cherished as those friends that we make face to face.

So my condolences this morning are to those that formed those friendships and those bonds with Roadrunner. Cherish the memories of your friend that has left you in body but not in spirit. Remember her words...hold them close...they will keep her with you.

Topix life is real...we lose those that we have come to love...call friend. We miss them...remember them...keep a place in our hearts for them.

Like Maia, I've been away from Topix for several years. But when I heard that RR had passed, I felt compelled to return to pay my respects.

I look forward to spending some time this weekend re-reading some of our old post. She was such a great friend... alway in your corner, even if you were completely wrong and making an a*s of yourself.

It has been so long, I've forgotten how to navigate and search Topix. I will post a couple of my favorite this weekend when I have time to dig in.

I'm sure NL will remember... she has an amazing memory.
