In memorium

It’s always bad news when an email arrives from MediaWest these days, and there it was, a few days ago: another long-time fan, Melissa M., has passed away.
Melissa was one of the bright lights of MW – I always enjoyed talking to her, and so many others, at my annual trip to Lansing, MI. She was always friendly, always interesting to talk to, always a part of what going to MW meant to me – a very special time spent with friends I only saw once a year but stayed in touch with online.
So many fannish losses in the last few years – TACS, Rosemary C., Denetia, Robin H., Paulle, Robin S., Stacy D. – and many more who I did not know whose obits have shown up in MediaWest emails and other fannish spaces.
Time has gone by so very very quickly. Hugs to everyone who remembers them and mourns their loss. Posted to LJ and Dreamwidth. Comment wherever you prefer. :-)
