DUer GratefulforHope has died.

Last edited Sun Mar 2, 2014, 09:24 PM - Edit history (1)

I don't know what happen, but have a number for one of her daughters which I will call.

Ellen had been missing from MIRT for the past month and we wondered what happened to her. She had a miserable commute of several hours each way to her job in New York City and I figured that she was just busy.

Ellen was 64, a widow for some years, the mother of four and grandmother of seven. She loved DU.

Thanks to everyone for your good wishes. I've left a phone message for her daughter.

33. She was a rock star, a fucking monument to DU.

 

When I think of the fun we had on and off line, riffing on crazy things unrelated to DU, but then maybe related to DU.

Well, it makes me sad and it makes me happy.

I wouldn't have known her but for this board.

And I wish I had met her in this life.

I will see you in the afterlife, GFH!!!

HUGS!

Deepest condolences to Ellen's family and friends.

I think she had a different screen name after the 2008 election of Obama, surviving after the horror of Bushies, but can't think of what it was. No matter… Her presence joins others here who will be missed.

57. Safe passage GratefulforHope. I never knew you, but wish I had.

And to all the DUers who are mourning the loss of yet another one of our members,
get accustomed to those rites of passage. We're a group and many of us are getting older. I turned 64 a few weeks ago and might just be waxing on my own immortality, but it made me realize, once again, how precious and important we are. WE ARE ALL IMPORTANT.
Those who do great things will always be celebrated. Those who are not celebrated are just as important. We are all important. We are all necessary. We are all one.

79. Oh no.

She was one of only a few duers I considered a friend.


I figured she was taking time away dealing with her sister's really bad recent diagnosis.

This makes me very sad.

Rest in peace, kiddo.

83. A tremendous loss for DU

GratefulforHope was a mod the same time that I was. I mostly got to know her in that capacity. I remember that she was very level headed and able to take care of business when needed. She was one of the nicer DUers I ever encountered. This is a big loss for DU as a community.

94. Reading through the posts here,

I realized this was someone special. I've only been a member little over a year and take long breaks from all things political. So I wasn't familiar with her name. So, I decided to see who she was.

I read through her posts and I was so touched!

What a loving, caring, cool lady! I feel a loss for not having known her. I pray her passing was painless and that her family have strength to get through their loss.

but GratefulforHope is a special case. She reached out to many of us, including me, and made our worlds better because of it. I am glad to have had her in my life, no matter how limited our interaction.

101. I have lost a dear friend

We may have only known each other through the internet but I consider her very near & dear to me.

You were there to help me through some rough patches in my life and not once did you ever judge me, you accepted me for who I am.

When I read the news I was in shock, I am still in disbelief. Your presence here has been a positive & remarkable for many including myself.

I would love to write more here but I can't keep the tears out of my eyes.

Take care my friend. Till we meet again.

107. ^ What you said ^

Our internet friendship had expanded to talking on the phone, and if not for being on the other side of the world, we would have been hanging out in real life. I know what you mean about her being there to help through rough patches. She was always there for me, even though her office had moved further away and she had a monstrous hours long commute to get there each day.

I only found out about an hour ago and it's still sinking in. I'd been fearing the worst as I hadn't heard from her since the end of January, but I was hoping she'd reappear and it was just real life getting in the way. But this is the worst. I've missed her the past few weeks when I haven't known where she was, and I can't even begin to describe how much I'm going to miss her now. It just sucks so much...


My heart goes out to her family and friends...

118. what a heartbreaking loss. what an amazing woman.

some days i miss the old hot tub so much. what great people were there.

i am not at all surprised at some of these responses saying that ellen had helped them out so much. that we her. just about the most level headed person i ever met, but in the sort of deeply feeling way that you don't see very often.
another great blow to our community. and me.

rest well now my friend. you have earned it.

121. So very sad to here this. A wonderful person, mother and grandmother.

She has had a lot of difficulty over the past few years and was unfailing in her dedication to her family.

She served as moderator for DU for many years and was exemplary and an inspiration.

My best wishes to her family, who I know will miss her terribly.
