Nicknameless has left Democratic Underground
I have been informed by one of her friends in California that my friend, Nancy, aka Nicknameless, has lost her battle with
cancer and passed away last week. She was an intensely committed to election reform, a return to justice and always
posted with a send them to the Hague signature line complete with a photo of the Hague. She was a person who took
a intense joy out of simple things, meditating, her cat: Zinga, gardening, the CD "Mariner" was her favorite album.
I was told that she constantly talked about DU and how much we all meant to her in her last days.

Good Bye, Nancy, we will remember your dedication and your love of life.

Nancy was an intensely private person and I am sure she wanted to have a private funeral with her friends in
San Francisco, but I thought there should be a note here on her passing. She loved the Rock and Roll oldies, she
had just turned 50 last winter.

Good Bye Nancy, we all will miss you!

Miss Waverly

13. She loved life, loved all her plants
she grew orchids, she created masterpieces with them, they were just so fragile and so beautiful.

18. I met her due to Andy
she tried to get him to switch to these "energy packs" that you create with a juicer, she thought it would help him with
his cancer.

I have been crying myself at the keyboard if Nancy could see me now she would be laughing. She always said that I was so crazy,
and are all the people in Baltimore like you?

49. Denver.
That isn't a poster name I've seen for a long while.

Her poster name is synonymous with the good fight.

She was posting regularly when I came upon this site.

26. it's a very relaxing CD
I downloaded to my mp3 and listen when I have trouble sleeping, Ghost ships is kinda neat, you just kinda start concentrating
on the music and it helps you relax.

276. I usually just go to Itunes
but you have to pay by the tract, it's better to just buy the CD from Amazon and then just burn it your playlist and then
download to your mp3, or play it while you are at DU, it's probably cheaper.

I think it's $1.50 by song.

good luck.

30. Thank you
I had a dream when Andy died, I saw him standing in heaven and he was still in pain, still suffering from the cancer
and then came this shower of golden rain and I saw that every rain drop had a light inside and I realized that
every rain drop was a prayer or a kind thought from all the DU people and all the people that knew him
and after the rain stopped, I dreamed that he was standing there well again that the prayers and kind thoughts had
healed him.

345. Andy.
Did I know Andy?

Did he know me?

Probably not.

We interacted. In this weird web world, we talked to each other. "Great Post Andy, now did you hear...,"
that kind of stuff.

Every time I saw an Andy post, I knew I had a kindred spirit. He would respond to what I had to say and I to him. When he was in Dutch with the mods or Skinner, I went to bat for him. (As did many DUers.)

Andy got sucker punched. Both by the cancer and the Freepers. Between the two of them, they removed a powerful articulate voice for democracy and human rights.

I miss Andy, and I suspect that we are a whole lot worse off having lost ms nicknameless.

40. she was more analytical than me
she could outline things down to the finest detail, I wish she had a chance to make observations on this election
since the election reform was her thing but I am only a blogger not the guy that makes the pearly gates work.

Edited on Thu Aug-09-07 09:25 PM by BeHereNow
We would be happy to honor Nancy by giving her cat a home.
PM me if you know, I am in Burbank and a total animal person.
If anything happened to me, I would want my fur babies to end up
with someone like me.
My fur babies live GOOD.
Home made food and everything natural.

Edited on Thu Aug-09-07 09:44 PM by MissWaverly
But God, who I know is a liberal, had this all planned, he called Zinga home to him last Spring,
Nancy was bummed at the time but now they are both together, I know they are and I know
Andy is up there with a welcoming committee. Since he always loved people.

51. she told me that she was out driving one day
and she came around this curve and she saw this house, it was like her dream house, the one that she always kinda
wanted and the next time she drove that way, she went down the same street and there was no house just a vacant
lot. Well, maybe she is now there in her dream house, I just hope it has a connection to DU becuz that's
what my dream house would have.

She was a graphic artist before her illness, she could not do it as the cancer advanced, it was something she missed,
she loved paintings, posters and you could mention any theme and she could send you a clip of a fab painting about it.

192. yes, I was thinking of a poem driving home
Conscientous Objector - by Edna St. Vincent Millay

"I shall die, but that is all I will do for death.

I hear him leading his horse out of the stall; I hear the
clatter on the barn-floor.
He's in haste, he has business in Cuba, business
in the Balkans, many calls to make this morning.
...I shall die; but that it is all I will do for death;
I am not on his payroll."

She never bought the spin, she never bought the excuses
and she did not believe that supporting the troops
meant sending them to die based on a lie.

when I was young, I was really into the Give us this day, our DAILY BREAD, of

But now I think the Give us this day is the really important part,

215. thanks,, she would have gotten a real kick from
impeach mints, I don't know if she saw that sig line. She had some problem with her computer and accessing here, it's
kind of complicated but I don't know if she could see all the sig lines on hers or not.

217. thank you,
If she could have just reached one person on here just one, then it would have been worth it for her.
If she could have gotten just one person to donate to help the animals abandoned after Katrina.
If she could have gotten just one person to donate for the Katrina victims.
If she could have gotten just one person to believe in election reform.
If she could have gotten just one person to want them to support the troops by bringing them home.
then all the time that she spent here would have been worth it to her.

Becuz you see, we will have time to go to the beach, the park, that neat little bistro,
but while she was sitting there at the computer, she knew time was running out,
she knew there would never be another summer, another Christmas, another lazy Sunday,
and she chose to spend what time she had left with us so that she could make a difference.

What a great loss for DU :(

I remember when Bush got up and admitted he had not been truthful before the 06 elections, she was livid,
if he's not truthful then he's lying, why can't they say he lied. How can we have accountability when
they can't even say he lied.

I was very touched by your VERY warm tribute to Nancy. I was hoping to read that she was into her 70 or 80's, then saw she had just turned fifty and my heart sunk a bit - I am so sorry she suffered this so young, and my heart is extended to those who knew of her - God bless you all, you're in my thoughts!

A hearty DU :kick: for you, Nancy!

When I posted about my mom's death, I got SOOOOOOOO many responses from the sweetest, kindest, most sympathetic/empathetic, supportive people I could hope for. And these are people I have never met. It really helped to lift me up. Just blew my mind. And it DID make things easier to bear. You know what they say about many hands and shoulders and all... I'm sure it's having that same effect for you.

Becuz there are so many people here on DU, there's a number of people who have lost a loved one from cancer or lost a parent,
so you get real answers rather than superfical stuff that doesn't help at all.

right there but she was also a person that could discuss the virtues of cats vs. dogs, urban vs rural, musicals

268. thank you
she had such big hopes and dreams that it is hard to believe that she is gone, it's like looking at
a big freighter cutting the ice in the harbor on a cold day in January and see this big, mighty
ship disappear just disappear before your eyes.

I know that she worked hard to make the world a better place. I hope that
her work and Andy's work is remembered, because they labored for what
we used to take for granted: safe pet food, clean elections,
a healthy planet.

340. yes, she really cared about this
with her it was every pet was important, she cared about them and she thought that we were too careless with their lives, too
careless with the planet, & too careless with people's lives. She thought food for people was contaminated way ahead of
anyone else.

352. Yes, it is a sad day
I was explaining to her about current FDA standards, she said you have got to
be kidding me. I told her that I heard a food lobbyist explain that there
will always be adverse effects from food like the spinach outbreak and
that Americans should just accept it.

170. OMG! I am so terribly sorry!
Nancy became a friend of mine during Katrina because she cared so much about the animals. And we became reacquainted during the pet food recall scare when she was so diligent in keeping us informed with the latest information. I mourned with her when she lost her beloved cat and she was always sympathetic about my ordeals with my own pets. I will miss her terribly, such a caring, kind and compassion person. I only wish that I'd known that she was suffering through such an ordeal of her own. Godspeed, my friend, and thank you for all you did on behalf of the animals...

297. You're welcome. I considered Nancy a friend and a kindred spirit.
I am too shocked for words. I wish that she'd told me. I lost my Dad to cancer. I know that she said she didn't have enough energy to keep up with her pet food recall threads, but I thought it was emotional, since she was still mourning her beloved 21-year-old cat. I also recently lost my little dog and she understood. I will certainly miss her and there are many conversations with her still in my head... Anyway, I wish her peace, and the loss of Nancy is a huge loss to DU, to the animals to whom she was so devoted, and to me... ;(

318. I understand. I have gone through cancer with my father
and my aunt and my uncle. *sigh* I just wish that she'd let me know. Our communications became fewer and I still owe her one, knowing how well she would understand how I felt when I lost my little dog, as she had lost her beloved cat. And I wish so much that she had known how well-thought of that she was here, and how many kindred spirits and friends that she touched, including me. Thank you so much for getting back to me and for the information. ;(

181. Bless her dear heart. She was a kind, intelligent and fun person.

She and I exchanged emails periodically and it was a delight. Just last week, I thought, what's up, we have not talked in a while. You know how that happens here, you go out of contact for a period, and it's usually no big deal, but I was quite aware of her condition. We talked about Zinga a lot and cats in general (very DU dialog of a type). She did adore that cat, which lived until it was 19 I believe.

Her life was a struggle to understand, to maintain her dignity, and to move forward. She was a great elections advocate and understood the issues precisely and with real depth.

I'm going to miss her, I already do.

Thank you Miss Waverly!

So sorry we never had the chance.

I just turned 50 this summer... and my heart beats to the rhythm of rock and roll... past, present and future.

It's always extra sad when one of the good ones goes too soon.

Thanks for passing the word, Miss Waverly.

how many times do I sing one of those songs while I am driving, Like: "I was walking past your house, late last night, saw her
kiss and hold you tight, oh, so tight, wonder whose silhouette was on the shade, silhoustte on the shade." (I am probably
hacking this to pieces but I still sing it.)

and I don't care if they use stem cells or the eye of a potato to do it, those stem cells are all just thrown in the trash
after they bloviate about it. At least let them be used to help people like Nancy and Andy have normal lives.
Right to life for stem cells is not about life, it's about right to red bagged trash.

271. RIP
I was thinking.

I see these threads of DUers passing from time to time and I thought it would be nice to have a place where deceased DUers can be remembered in one place.

Now i know we already have a DU graveyard for disruptors... but why should they have a special place of remembrance?

I an not advocating we get rid of the DU graveyard just that we add a place where we could 'walk amongst the tombstones' if you will, and read about them through their posts and through other memories of them.

Just my two cents.

338. I agree, esp. as the disruptors come back under
new names, old wine in new bottles but our friends are gone to us & there should be a place of honor, with maybe a few of their posts

302. I am saddened by her passing.
I was told once that when a person is wholeheartedly committed to a project or a cause, their support is ongoing even after death.
She is now "up there" somewhere, her spirit still hard at work on the world she did in life. Her hand is no longer on the tiller but she guides us nonetheless, showing us the path she was on and making sure we follow her steps.
We pray that the departed may "rest in peace". Lets also pray she continues alongside us showing the way.

so much so that the word has gone out, make things right down there in the Washington, DC so these people will shut up.

307. Condolences to those closest to her.
She touched us so deeply in this online community that knowing her face to face must count as one of life's great and fortunate blessings.

I know that I was blessed by having the light of her kindness and humor turned my way, however briefly.

She was an advocate for real election reform. She displayed concern for others' health problems even while she herself battled cancer. She deeply loved animals, and at the time worked daily to bring news and raise awareness of the crisis concerning tainted pet food that killed countless animals.

It was among her last posts here at DU.

Rest in peace dear Nancy. You inspired love and gave love...the best and greatest of all that we can ever do in this life.

Condolences to us all, and gratitude for having been touched by a beautiful and fervent soul.

when people, good people enter our lives and share the greatness of their life we should all be grateful. when one as this grows their wings and reaches the place we shall someday reach we should send our blessings and love as they I am sure are watching us and giving us encouragement. Blessings to her and blessings to you all.

together which I had not connected.

ever worried about the common "good" or the general welfare of the country, she did.

She bought me a star. Then asked me to give the hearts to a couple DUers who had none.

May she be a rockin' and rollin', as we speak, in front of the big guys juke box.

Peace to you Nicknameless

...and to you as well, Miss Waverly.

351. I am shocked
I can't believe she is gone.

Just like autorank said, I feel sometimes, we miss the posts, or don't see certain Duers post for a while...or we ourselves are sidetracked elsewhere...and we somehow expect everyone to be around later.

I am sad we won't see her passionate posts anymore.
Her body may have given up but her spirit is now everywhere and anywhere she wishes.

Thank you nicknameless it was an honor to fight ER and other issues with you,

and thank you, Miss Waverly.

Much love to Nancy's family & friends

I miss her, too.

stumble off to work and to the mall and ignore what passes for normal nowadays. Nancy never hesitated
to stand up and say this is wrong. We are family, we keep pushing, we keep doing, we do not

365. So sad! I had many private messages with her
and we had a private joke, because I had long thought she was a specific man in Debra Bowen's office because how she so often posted their press releases.

I had no idea she was ill, but I'm sure she handled things the way she wanted to.

What a loss.
