I don't know how many of you are currently active that remember our member, Butterflake (Donna). She last posted in November about a mass deep in her brain. (/

Since then, I've been unable to reach her, her spouse, or her daughter. I think I located her obituary today.../ It doesn't really say much, but I'm fairly certain that is our friend. She was a co-moderator of this forum for a while.

I'm numb. In 2008, 6 of us from this forum met up in Atlanta and spent a day together. I am the only one remaining.

Hug your loved ones.

I’m so sorry to hear of Butterflake’s passing. I had wondered recently how she was doing as I remembered her posting she had a been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Yes, Butterflakes last post in November said they'd found a "solid mass", possibly a blood clot, in her brain that they were going to biopsy. I talked to her once after that but she seemed to be heavily drugged or something as she made no sense on the phone. I have no idea if they even did the biopsy.
