I’ve been a member here since 2011. I don’t come on here very often although I do follow the 667 Facebook page and I must say I was very shocked to hear about Linda’s passing. From what I’ve read she’d definitely done a lot for her community in real life as well as on here. Like BSam I am loving the new banner. My thoughts are with her family and friends at this distressing time...
Wow! I just happened to log in here for the first time in years, and saw the banner at the top of the forum. I am very sad to hear about her passing. She was the only fellow Utahn I knew of on this forum, and even though I haven't been active for a very long time, I do feel like I should post a shoutout to her for always being so kind and caring.
It's really interesting how we often make connections with people online that we never end up meeting in real life. Even though I never met her outside of this forum, I'm grateful to have met her.
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. - C.S. Lewis
Every few years I check in, and even though I haven’t posted in a very long time, it was always comforting to see things continue to grow, and to see members from when I joined active, like Linda. I was genuinely saddened to hear the news. It’s probably been over 10 years since I talked to Linda, but genuine kindness is hard to forget. Grateful for the moments she took to connect, and for offering friendship during a time I really needed it. Just wanted to take the time to remember a kind soul.

Linda’s memorial in the show, the M. Howarth sign in the VFD tunnels, can be found in The End just after 23:23.
Lemony's words in this scene: "But some memories never fade, and these memories are often of people we've lost. We carry them with us, the way I carry every letter I ever received from Beatrice... a woman I will never share a root beer float or a horse costume with again."
Terry Craig: that was an ace retort tbh, jean

jeanlucio10: 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF GERMAN NAZI CONCENTRATION AND EXTERMINATION CAMP AUSCHWITZ 27 JANUARY 2020.

jeanlucio10: I would like to read now a short story written by Lemony Snicket about how VFD helped to defeat Nazism. This would be interesting to introduce the subject to children.

jeanlucio10: "Anne Frank - the Diary of a Young Girl",could be the book club's third book? I haven't read this one either.

Terry Craig: I think the historical events are interesting enough on their own, and don't need to be taught just to introduce children to Lemony Snicket.

jeanlucio10: You're right Terry.

jeanlucio10: This request of mine was a selfish appeal from my heart, disguised as a request on behalf of the children.

𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓻: i know anne frank was a belieber but i wonder if she was in the VFD too

jeanlucio10: I just read a 2013 report about your comment 𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓻, so I can understand the meaning. Through this report, I realized that there are people more self-centered than me.
