    Lily...our dedicated leader for many, many years, has passed away.

    All of our older members will remember Lily, our dedicated, red headed leader for many, many years. I just got off the phone with her son T.J. She passed away a few days ago, at age 62, from a brain aneurysm. We are so, SO sorry for T.J. and his family. We are so sorry for her LPF family as well. We went through some fantastic times in the early days when it was her and Mayor Dave, and all the charlatans and characters that made this place so fun.

    Life is so precious and can be taken away so quickly. Never miss a chance to pass on a little love.

    Rest in peace Lily...you will be sorely missed.










    Here's a picture of her "Lilyburst"...

    Very sad news...I was one of her Mods for a while in the early days, and it was great to reconnect with her when we resurrected the LPF. RIP Lily.

    She kept in touch with me when I first had my cancer and surgeries. She had a lot on her plate with her mom and other things. She was a good friend and wonderful confidant and had a wonderful sense of humor and musical sensibilities. This is sad news and I will miss her greatly.

    I am also sad, including the fact that I never knew what she looked like until now.

    She did a lot to keep this place going and I am glad to have known her.

    Rest in peace, Lily.

    When I was new here, she helped me out with some much needed supportive advice.

    I had always imagined that I would get the opportunity to meet her in person one day. Alas, that was not to be.

    RIP, Lily.

    Re: Lily...our dedicated leader for many, many years, has passed away.

    My condolences to Lily's friends and associates here on the LPF and of course, her family.

    Lily and I shared quite a few notes shortly after 9/11 as the LPF lost member MIKE and I lost some good friends and coworkers on the same day (United). Prior to those exchanges, I presumed that Lily was different than the practically-minded, very humanistic individual that she clearly was. This is a significant loss in our eclectic, yet small community. What we have here in the electronic derivative of a good old barn full of Gibsonittes probably wouldn't have come to be without her early efforts. She is responsible for many friendships in what was a very large gathering of strangers.

    Peace, Lily
