Even later here, if only I saw this sooner. I didn't speak with her much but this is still a shock to me. So very, very sad. Thank you for posting this. I wish I had read her stories before now so that I could have seen them in a happier light. :'(

I'm a latecomer to this sad news but I too very much enjoyed her presence here. A great loss to the Biggles world. Condolences to all.

Oh no, that is sad news. I hardly knew here, but from her posts on here, she was always helpful, witty, intelligent, and enjoyed a good laugh. The laughing smiley was always her favourite, wasn't it?
