Not game related, but certainly site related. On of our own site contributors and approver DJP Mom has passed away. The following was posted on her Facebook page:
My name is Corey, Deb's son. Unfortunately my mother passed away tonight at 1:00 AM in a state of cardiac arrest. To all her friends, thank you for keeping her as happy as possible, and please keep her in your thoughts. please send your thoughts and comments to [email protected] Thank You.
Our deepest condolences to her family, rest in peace.
This day seems to be not a very good one. An hour before i received the info about an suicide, and now this - really sad :(
All the best for her beloved ones and rest in peace, Deborah. After many years, with all the ups and downs, the pain and the hope - on the way to final victory, the loss seem to make really no sense :(
I saw this as soon as it was posted and I couldn't bring myself to say anything. This was honest-to-God devastating to hear --way more than I could've anticipated.
There goes who, as far as I can tell, might very well be the last nice person in the planet. And quite a fighter too. The internet is gonna be a much more horrible place without her kindness around to balance things out. I hope we all here at MG especially know just how lucky we were to have her with us, because we're not gonna find someone even remotely similar to her again.
One of my cats is sitting on my lap as I type this, I like to think of this as a sort of homage to her :)
This was shocking to read; I did not know about her condition.
She was always such a warm and friendly presence here, as I am sure she was everywhere else in her life.
I wish her family and friends much strength.
Wow, this is pretty heavy. Seems like she was always part of the place, and now she's moved on. :<( Thanks for informing us.
This reminds me... Even though I bike a lot, I should probably adjust my eating habits a bit. I don't want to have heart issues of my own.
You know, I've had Might and Magic 1-6 for ages, but haven't played them. Always planned on getting part 7 & 8 from GOG.com eventually. I see that she liked M&M 6, 7 & 8. I'm going to slowly go through them all to honor your memory DJP Mom!
Librarians instilled a love of reading and finding information in my life, so DJP Mom made the world a better place not only with that. I enjoyed the PC kids game entries she added and all the work she did on here and help she gave. R.I.P.
She will be missed, for sure...
She's an example of a person who's passing through a hard situation, but still has the strength to fill with positivity the ambient around her
All my condolences to her family and friends. Rest in peace
Didn't really know her, me being new and not very active. But I did notice she was very nice in the forums and had a great taste in games, often going for the funny and quirky instead of the mainstream behemoths.
RIP, DJP Mom.
