    Just out of curiosity, which member was it that she always spoke about that wrote such funny stories all the time? I think he was sick or something like that.

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

    I haven't logged on in about a week, and I was shocked when I saw Lily's picture at the top of the screen... and very saddened. When I came back after some years hiatus and had to start another profile, I wondered what happened to Lily. I always thought she did a great job dealing with all the guys, bath room humor and personal attacks that seem to routinely happen in online forums. She was a class act and will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. Rest in peace Lily

    Might be Big Al, he's the one who first made me aware of the Forum, and one funny SOB! He's also been fighting the good fight.

    Sad news indeed :( I remember a few exchanges years ago (time flies so fast) where she helped me out with some forum support, she sounded like a very nice person.
    Sincere condolences to her family, and thank you Lily for all the great time made possible through the LPF.

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

    I just got off of the phone with my LONG TIME and VERY GOOD friend Charlie Daughtry, who gave me this news; both of us were among the first few hundred members here. I spoke by phone with Lily about 152 years ago, and STILL remember the conversation; I was impressed with her poise, wit, and downright CLASS - which is something you can't BUY at ANY price! Alternately, it's called "breeding" - you either HAVE it or you DON'T - and if you DON'T, you're SOL! Lily had it in SPADES; hell - the whole DECK! We had numerous private email exchanges as well; quite simply - they don't GET any better than that gal!

    There's more proof that only the GOOD die YOUNG; which is why *I* will prolly live about another 50 years. And if I do so, I hope I never forget you, Lil - thank you for being YOU, and thank you for taking over the reins of this place and keeping the stagecoach pointed in the right direction through ALL the crazy weather it went through! Now pardon me while I go have myself a good cry...

    Such sad news, I hope her family is well, and to those here who became her friend, i'm so sorry for your loss.
    I owe a lot to this forum, so much knowledge, all of which came together thanks to Lily.
    This is actually the first time i've put a face to the name. She looked really kind.

    I was a member here at the start also and will always remember Ms. Lily as a straight shooter. She had a nice Les Paul with a Bigsby, I think it was a one off custom build or something.

    If memory serves, I think that guit was set up for her by Dan Erlewine. But with my memory, its a 50/50 bet.

    Your memory serves you well in this instance. It was indeed set up by Dan . Truth of the matter is I have played her guitar far more than she ever did. She was such a lover of acoustics that she let me borrow her guitar and just left it with me. The guitar plays fantastic, Dan is going to go places if he sticks with it!

    So sad about this... I know she had a rough go here towards the end when she handed over the forum to our new owners but dammit, she was great gal and worked awful hard for us for a very long time!

    Goodbye Lily, we will remember you for as long as the forum is here!!!

    Big Al. The original thread on this board with the saved posts from the ezboard forum is here, but for some reason it's disabled. It would be great if a mod could please unlock it. It had a great story by forum member Rich as well.

    This thread has some of the Big Al stories scattered through it.

    I haven't been around here much in the last few years, dealing with my own medical struggles among other things, so I'm not up on the "backstage" activities at the LPF. Needless to say, I'm shocked to hear about Lily. My most sincere condolences to Lily's friends and family. Is there a link to an obituary or something?

    Oh no. I'm so sorry to hear this. The LPF was the first internet forum I ever posted in. I lurked for a year or so, and when I first tried to post I emailed Lily and she patiently walked me through the process. We communicated for years via email. What a sweetheart. We even shared music, emailing CDS back and forth. One thing I haven't seen mentioned but Lily had an absolutely phenomenal voice. She could pull off some really mean Led Zep. Some great Janis stuff.as well. I'll try to find those disc and post some tunage. RIP Lily. A true class act.

    What a shock. A really nice lady. She recruited me to mod the ill-fated Acoustic Forum here. What a joy to work with.

    So sorry to hear this very sad news. My condolences to TJ and Lily's family and friends. My first memory of Lily was when the forum moved from the old ezboard site to vBulletin forum software 15 years ago. She skilfully managed to help migrate most of us early LPF reprobates account details over to the new forum software and tuned it so all ran smooth. Along with Dave P she helped build this place. She was top shelf. RIP Lily
