As most of you already know.....We lost a very special LADY Tuesday August 5......Neko passed away in the arms of her beloved family.

Her battle began in December and she fought long and valiantly and survived against all odds.  I firmly believe,  in addition to her dedicated and loving family, our prayers and continued thoughts were very beneficial for her positive outcome.

 Neko was deeply touched by her fellow friends on the forum for their love and support.  She graciously offered her heartfelt thankfulness to each and every one of us for our shared concerns and prayers.

Neko's secondary medical problems, I suspect were just too much for her weakened body to overcome. I was in contact with her family during both of her extended hospitalizations; her family was very appreciative of our love for Neko.

I would personally like to thank each and every one of our posters who commented and offered prayers and thoughts to our friend.  Your thoughts and prayers were shared with  Neko and her family throughout her illness. Again, thank you my forum friends.


With tears of sadness I say to you,  rest in peace my dear friend,  you were loved and you will truly be missed.

I have lost a friend who I never had the pleasure to meet. When you think about it our entire high school years are only four years, yet some of us have been conversing for over eight years and in my case it is now ten years. In the early years I stayed out of the squabbles which were going on within the forum, and mostly just had fun with her. She was intelligent and brought a huge benefit to this forum with her knowledge of living in Japan. She knew I would just instigate a argument about anything to get her pized at me.

I remember arguing about a 3D printer for twenty forum pages as we would not give up our positions. She loved it when she got the best of me, and she did often because she would stick to detail and was tenacious in her research. I literally shed tears yesterday for a person I never met, yet she became part of my life. I knew the outcome would not be good, but I just wanted to have one more discussion with her. I guess we all wish those we care about we could know or have the knowledge for that last conversation.

It will not be the same for me with her gone. I was so happy for her with her latest move, and I was certain she would enjoy winding down to retirement. My prayers to her family who will miss her as much as we will. I am thankful Joan kept us informed, because sadly too many of our friends have left with no follow up. I will be joining her soon enough, but she most certainly will be in a wonderful place, and I do not know if the devil will allow internet connection with heaven......but if I can.....I will irritate her some more. I am happy I knew her, and I am lucky to have shared so many hours over the years.

Thanks for posting Joani, I see the cat got out of the bag by another poster earlier and I know you'd asked we not say anything. Neko really saw the two sides to every discussion. RIP Neko

Well, she was about as hard-headed a poster as the internet has ever seen.

Once she staked out her position, she was sticking to her guns no matter how clearly you could demonstrate her error.

And, she wasn't about to let me have the last word on any subject ever.

lol

We had some spirited debates, and she often brought some brilliant insights to the table when the subject was something other than politics.

I'll miss her.

RIP, Neko.

Neko(Cat) was very special to me.  Having also lived in Japan, she understood some of the idiosyncrasies  of living there.  She never chastised me for some of my  crass or irreverent posts.  She understood what I was trying to say...I bought her a book on Japan when she first got sick,  I procrastinated and never got it to her.  May she rest in Peace.  She was a good person and friend that I never personally met.................I wish I could have...

10 Re: Neko on 8/7/2014, 8:16 pm

So sorry for the loss of your friend. Neko seemed like a very nice lady and she was conservative, so we know she was smart.  I love you  My prayers are with her family and all of you, her friends.

Rest in peace, Nekochan.

That is so sad.

She was a very smart lady and held her ground where she knew she was right.

She is now in a much better place than this world can provide. Know that and remember the good times.

God Bless.

20 Our friend Neko on 8/4/2017, 9:11 pm

Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of Neko's passing.

She along with Teto, Bob, Z man and others are terribly missed. The forum had so much life and activity with these individuals. They made a difference with their love of life, their laughter and even a little cynicism. Never afraid to defend their position and did it with decorum above reproach. Their intelligence and knowledge covered a wide range of topics and ideas...not all conventional... but always expressed with tact, honesty, humor, and civility.  Never needing to resorted to nasty, condescending, vulgar or irrational discourse we now endure from posters and their socks.

Rest in peace my friends and know you are all missed so very very much. If we could only go back in time to enjoy your company once again.

I miss you all, especially my friend.

I still smile about some of our conversations. She would get very angry with me at times, but she would not give up in trying to logically find error in my viewpoint. She never name called, or tried to attack me personally but truly enjoyed finding that I stumbled and was wrong about something. She should have never moved from Huntsville. She was so happy, and I am convinced that in her renovations she had done drywall work and with black molds being so common, they can cause havoc with your lungs which does not immediately manifest itself.

Seaoat...Neko and her husband stayed busy in Huntsville traveling around. But, Neko hated the cold weather. They wanted to be close to their son and daughter, so they moved back home.
