The loss to the online community is immense, as would be the loss to her own family.

Another mourner who didn't even know Erin. Can't add much more to what people have already said about her wit, her warmth and her savage love and care for this Ship.

Like othere, I keep hoping this is a sick joke. Like, when there are enough donations in her memory to the Floating Fund, she'll post, "Allright, I can get up again. we're finally n the black, you cheap bastards"

Bye, Dear Erin. Stay Restless in Peace

Like Masha, I cried when I read the news.

I was rarely so much as nipped by the gator, but I respected her for her posting and for her fervour for the Ship, a place definitely molded by her.

This does emphasise how a community can develop on line, with very rare physical meetings. I hope we can keep the style going.

Someone who would call a spade, “a bloody shovel!”

Who did not suffer fools (the ultimate irony)

and is and will be, very sadly missed.

I don’t know if anyone else has suggested it:

a fitting tribute would be to permanently change the Ship’s logo to include a smiling alligator in the water

Well, I've been thinking it might be fitting to create a gator smilie for chomping down on asshat postings in the future. Maybe admin use only.

Myself & Jono found out last week that an old friend of Jono's died the day before Erin of a similar thing, he was only 48. So even though we didnt know Erin it still adds to the grief we are feeling. I havnt been on the ship for years now apart from the occasion look in but when i think of the ship i always think of Erin and now even more so.

RIP Erin [Votive]

I read this forum an awful lot more than I post, and have been doing so for a long time. I've always been impressed by a lot of people here, but especially Erin. I kind of wanted to be that articulate myself and a post by her on a thread always made me read it. It's very hard to believe there won't be any more posts.

The only conversation I ever had with Erin was one of the two times I have signed into the cafe. She was in the middle of a miserable Florida winter, and it was blistering hot here in NZ. I didn't like the heat, she didn't like the cold, and we spent a happy half hour working out how to swap places.

It changed my entire picture of her. I hope she's in a warm heaven.

I no longer read/post here, but hearing about Erin's untimely death through others [thank you], I had to come back to say, to pray, "May her memory be eternal!"; and to say my love, thoughts and prayers are with Erin's family and friends.

I do not recall crossing swords with her [lucky me; I couldn't go against that wit!]; or many threads we posted on together: though one to do with apartments and toilet paper comes to mind! [Help] And from her I first heard about G&B's Maya Gold -- which I will get tonight in memory of her.

What I do remember is someone who gave their all for this wonderful community. She was an amazing individual: and this place, this world, will not be the same without her. Memory Eternal Erin!

Get in touch with somebody you've been meaning to.

Yes, I'd been thinking of pointing her to Taize' prayer services. She wanted to be Catholic, but felt she couldn't. Taize' is ecumenical, but close enough to RC practice that it could fill in the gap a bit.

Was just now thinking of the "Simpsons" episode where Homer and the kids become Catholic, and Marge is still Episcopalian, and all of them die and go to heaven.

M is sipping tea in a very proper, white (IIRC), uptight heaven. H and the kids are in RC heaven...and *everyone* is dancing Riverdance! M eventually joins them.

Saw last night.

I've mainly lurked recently, not posted much. An Erin post was always something to click on. Incisive, intelligent, often cutting, often thought provoking, usually entertaining.

She'll be missed here, and I cannot begin to imagine how her friends and family "in real life" will come to terms with the loss of someone so full of life.

I was told about this by two people not even on the Ship -- Erin's personality and energy had impact to those who have never joined here or posted here. And for the Ship itself, of course, a huge loss.

At the NoCal meet this afternoon we talked about black armbands, and we were a bit uncomfortable with those.

The image did flash through my head of a black 'gator armband. Perhaps swallowing its own tail -- the Gator Ouroboros? I think Erin would have chuckled.

Dear Lord, I haven't been around much this past while and when I check in, the news is shocking.

All the tributes on the ship show how much a virtual comunity can be pretty real whare it matters, in the heart.

May she sit at the right hand of God.
