Sad news about SS.

Postby phreadom » Fri 04.29.2011 12:14 am

It is with great regret that I inform the TJP community of the loss of our friend SS.

She passed away April 16th from complications from a viral infection. I know some of her friends here were growing worried about her due to not hearing from her for a few weeks. I'd emailed her a few days ago to make sure she was ok and finally received an email back from her family tonight letting me know what happened. :cry:

I wasn't sure whether or not to write this, but I know that a lot of people liked her and I thought they should know.

It really is too bad to hear about this.

She was definitely one of the most kind and helpful people that I knew here.

She will be missed :(

I'm in shock. I can't believe it. I know she hasn't been around for a while and hasn't answered my facebook messages. I just thought she was busy. I had no idea she was sick.

She was such a kind, thoughtful person. I'm going to miss her. I had planned to visit her on the way to Japan sometime in the future. :cry:

I was very shocked to hear it. I'd known she had been sick and in and out of the hospital a bit, but I never saw this coming. She seemed so young and vibrant. I'm definitely saddened by the loss... for all of us. :cry:

I am terribly sorry to hear this. She's been a very good TJP member since 2005, and devoted herself greatly into Japanese study.

It's very shocking to have lost a dear friend so young. My sincere condolences.

I'm utterly shocked. Like (I expect) most of the people on TJP, I only knew SS through the internet, but her fun, hardworking, and most of all kind personality was unmistakeable. Personally I didn't know you well, but I will never forget you SS.

Thanks Phreadom, letting us know about this was the right thing to do.

I'm so stunned and saddened. I don't know what else to say. I will miss her very much, as I'm sure will many others here and elsewhere.

thanks for posting, Phreadom!!
Like a lot of people here and on FB, I had noticed she has been very absent for a while now.....but I had never imagined something this sad had happened...!

I'm really shocked to learn such a young and incredibly positive and gentle person has passed away so quietly...

Unbelievably sad news...

How sad... She was always so kind to us, even sending gifts by mail.

Thank you Phreadom for being a friend and checking on her.
