ita's thread

A place where we can talk about ita, miss ita, and share information about memorials. The hugging started over here in Natter.

Thrive to spite them

I wasn't going to look at the memories today because I'm missing vermont and cold weather again and didn't want to feel that and then I thought "well I'll see what else happened"

And saw my post about ita. AND the first person who commented on it was my Mom's best friend who died last year.

This was precisely why you didn't go around opening mystical bottles. Why was that so hard for people to understand?

Yeah. 5 years, how can that be?

Yes, my FB memories were saddening today.

everyone's anti-godzilla until there's a 200,000 ton boat that can't be moved

Thanks for the warning gang, I avoided facebook last night. Sad memories + migraine would not have been a good combination.

If anyone wants to, you can hide memories for specific days or people.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

It doesn't seem possible that it was 5 years ago, but I was pregnant with ltc at the time. So, somehow the math works.

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

In light of the most recent episode of Doctor Who and the mother of the actor in question being Jamaican, I thought "ita would be rampaging through the thread singing, and then looking for someone to make her a coat." And oh, the hunt for the right glasses . . . .

I avoid FB like the plague, except for my kids and the Buffistas, so I got missed by that. What I did get was an e-mail from the memorial archive for her. I did go look to reread some of the things people had posted about her. ita was such a strong personality, she could never be forgotten, but it's always nice to be reminded of just how remarkable she was to others besides us.

I just felt like I needed to post here to celebrate our new Jamaican VP. Miss you, ita!

I've been thinking about that too.
