20. Thank you EarlG.

T'is not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order, smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.


-from "Ulysses"
by ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON

Didn't see her name. Not sure of her whereabouts but I think she may have passed. She was one of the main reasons I stayed at DU. Her encouragement and acknowledgement of milestones was legendary. I miss her...

Thank you, admins, for this page.

Where does this page live? Can it be subscribed to?...

56. I vaguely remember...

...someone confirming it but, no, I can't confirm it. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

She was the official DU greeter, back in the day. She really made newbies feel welcome and at home. I'm pretty sure my first few hundred posts were made with the goal of being acknowledged by NewYawker99. She really knew how to throw a milestone party.

I would very much like to believe that she's still out there, somewhere...

If you're still out there, NewYawker99, I want to thank you for making me feel so welcome at a time and in a place that was otherwise, pretty intimidating.

191. Yes it's true

She was a good friend of mine. We met on DU and just became very close. She sent me various gifts during her last few months. She was tired of the pain from a broken hip and a botched replacement. She did it her way.

38. Oh Excellent! That's a very good idea, EarlG.

You've gotta know there are many among us who are wondering what happened to some of the missing DU beloved. For example, since I've found myself welcoming a lot of new (or newly-activated former lurking) posters, I find myself wondering about NewYawker99. ALWAYS led the "DU Welcome Wagon."

Thanks so much for this. A VERY good idea.

54. Thank you, and nicely done.

It made me a little sad going through the list. I think there were one or two that I was unaware had passed .. I'm not here everyday and don't know everyone as well as some here do. But so many on that list are posters I remember warmly.

Thanks for creating that page.

I can think of one longtime DUer who has passed away without any memorial thread which spoke of his death.

Pnorman was a crusty old Merchant Marine and a good advocate for labor, he was 82 when he died in 2012. A few other posters from the Seattle area knew Paul, too, but I can't remember their names now.

I remember many of them. Many found solace from their pain on DU and often said their last thoughts and thanks on DU.

I always had hard time reading their last posts and admired their courage and resolve to accept their fate with honesty.

I hope that some of their family members, who posted on DU and told us that they passed, still visit us on occasions.

May they rest in peace.

123. Rowdyboy passed away Wed March 5 2015

For those who knew Rowdyboy here on DU. It is my sad duty to inform those interested that Steven ( AKA Rowdyboy) passed away this past Wed Mar 5th after losing his battle with cancer. We thought that he was gaining and might possibly have a chance of beating it until the last two weeks when his health took a fast turn for the worse. His funeral services will be at noon tomorrow. He was a dear friend and while we know that he has to be in a better place he will always remain in the hearts of us that knew and loved him. His sense of humor and the witty things he could come up with will always bring a smile and laughter as we remember them over the years.

I just registered on the site here tonight so not real sure about the best way to inform those interested parties that he has interacted with. Also being new I can not start a topic yet so figured this was the best option avenue I have.

170. Recently added: Easily accessible.

Scroll to the bottom of any DU page.

Look for the words "In Memoriam"

New feature, just added. Not the Memoriam page, the easy accessibility.

175. Hi, EarlG, I checked to see if this member had been added, I'm including the thread:

Sad news. DUer Blue-Jay has died.

Jason hasn't been around DU lately because he had health problems after suffering a stroke. He had been a member of DU for many years and was noted for his sigline photo of Dubya with a giant squirrel.

He had recently had another stroke, went from the hospital to rehab and then home. We were Facebook friends and he had stopped posting there several weeks ago. Apparently, he had yet another stroke.

I don't have many details, but will post more when I get more information.

179. Ah! I re-read your OP so I checked the Memorial thread to see if he was there

And when I didn't see it, I thought it wouldn't hurt to kick the thread. I figured EarlG would check with you if he needed to know more.

180. He'd be pleased that it's there.

As is his ex-wife, who was prolesunited.

181. Oh! I remember her quite well!

Thanks for getting this taken care of, DUers will want to know - they were both members of this community. I often wonder about those who disappear and we never know why. TAB is likely gone from us and newyawker99 just disappeared. Those two long-time and active DUers come to mind...

182. Unfortunately, there's a lot of them.

I suppose that's to be expected. People drift in and out. Too many have died.

183. I know, there are way too many who just disappeared

I sometimes look for our fellow mods, especially at Valentine Hearts time.

185. It's not just fellow mods, but those I got to know on MIRT, too

And it's surprising to me that so many are gone since they contributed a lot to the site. And I liked them.

186. Some got disgusted with DU during the primaries and the election.

I know of some who are FFR.

187. Most of the ones we knew well left before last year

But I agree that there are a lot of DUers who are FFR. They used to be able to come back after the hides expired. And I have to say I'm still on a lot of juries.

189. So am I - always when I'm in the middle of something, LOL

And I have noticed that a whole lot of missing DUers last posted mid 2016. There are times I've gotten aggravated, but I still remember Skinner's advice - just take a break. It's a message board, we may have long memories, but the board still moves pretty fast. I do wish we could still lock the train wrecks, though. Those are the ones I get called on juries for.
