I've just been reading through this thread.  Mixed emotions.  It's such a raw thread.  Love for a band threw together people from all over the world on an internet forum.  Had it not been for Rush, most likely we'd go through life without knowing one another,  I've been around a lot of places on the internet.  Haven't been everywhere, but from what I have experienced, there is only one TRF.   And what makes TRF different are the members.  I can only conclude that is because of the type of person Rush appeals to.

I wish Wendy had asked for help.  But she did what she did for whatever reasons.  I just hope she is finally at peace.

No one should ever be afraid to come here and ask for help.

There hasn't been, and isn't anything wrong, with asking for help.  When, and if there are people, who are going through something in life like what Wendy, did, then they should ask for it.

Putting her name and d.o.d into Google brings immediate results with family members names and locations and out of respect for the family I don't know if such attention is welcome. I might have oversteped bounds posting her pics also. I did not check with the family first. Is the a way to take them off?

I don't know her last name.  She only told me her first name.  I would never have dreamed of putting her name into any search engine for further details, but that's just me.

I understand your concern but I don't know how posting her pictures are breaching any privacy.

We can put this thread into a section where only members can view it if that would make you feel better.

I know you don't know us, but we're Rush fans.  Rush fans, for the most part, are different.


If you would feel better deleting them, you should be able to see an Edit button at the lower right-hand corner of your post.  Just go back on your post and take them off.

Thank you. Her family is difficult and I don't want to step on any toes. If you were friends with her here I can put you in contact with her mom if you need more info or I can try to share what I know in private message. Sharon

Sunrise


(Sullivan) 2014

We sang aloud into empty space – get ready 'cos here we come
Passing trucks lighting up your face – get ready 'cos here we come
Through a night of a billion stars and hot coffee and the past receding
And now the road snakes through the fields of mist and the dawn is slowly breaking

Sunrise – will you remember the golden fire?

Everybody has a favourite road – National 7 into the great wide open
It joins up all the points in time, the great loves and the lost and broken
We watched the fireworks bloom across the sky, high above the crowds all cheering
We lay awake until the town grew quiet, just holding breath and waiting for

Sunrise – will you remember, breaking East of Eden

Sometimes the world works out the way you want it
Sometimes you say the things that you meant to say
Sometimes the moments break clear and certain
Sometimes the things you fear just roll away

So back here with my favourite song – get ready 'cos here we come
Straight ahead into the beautiful dawn – get ready 'cos here it comes

Sunrise – will you remember – I will, I will...

I’m sorry to bring this news but I’m afraid GedsJeans is no longer with us.

Shortly after Christmas I found out that she passed away. I’m guessing it was right after she disappeared from here.

  I don’t have details but in the very few messages we exchanged I could tell she had a heart of gold.

I hope this thread never leaves page one for its obvious value but also to serve as a reminder to all that we never know what someone else is going through in their life.. Sometimes people with big hearts are hurting and keep it all inside.

..Rest In Peace

Yeah she had a heart of gold yet she hated me, oh such a gold heart...

Only you could take a thread like this and make it about you.

There are times to say such things, and times where it's really inappropriate. Considering the turn this thread has taken, you were really inappropriate there. Learn to read the situation before you post about other people. Or, even easier, if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all.

Why should I care about someone who hated me?? It is sad that she passed away yes, but she hated me, as do most Rush fans in general.

It shows a lot of disrespect for the person who passed away. That is something you should care about.  And you're old enough now to not need to be told that. Yet, here I am telling you.

If you had a past conflict with a person, and that person passes away, that would be a good time to let that conflict go. And now would be a good time for you to stop posting in this thread. ;)
