Let's have ourselves a fine thread to celebrate the life of our friend troubleinwinter.

My friends

I got word that on Thanksgiving week, that Tuesday, our friend was driving home to northern California from Arizona and she was lost in a terrible car crash. The police seemed to believe she fell asleep and her ex seemed to believe she died on impact. Terrible news.

I waited for a while to post out of respect for her family and intimate friends. Out of respect for her friends here at DU and out of respect for all her wonderful participation here, let's have a thread for her tonight.

I think I met trouble here in this forum. She was a brilliant, loyal, generous woman. She could be testy, silly and laser sharp on any problem, by turns. She made this, do you remember?

trouble helped fly and merh and fooj and me make a circle around Andy. She stayed up until all hours in those bad days to help figure out the way forward. She was a relentless advocate for election reform and active in her Democratic community. A gifted artist, a very devoted mother and an irreplaceable, irrepressible friend.

To our friend, troubleinwinter. This place, any place, is so much less without you. You are always in our hearts, always bright, always beautiful and always loved.
