In Memoriam: Furls Fire

Post by Fist and Faith »

For those who don't know, the best of us, Furls Fire, died two weeks ago. I asked Jay about putting this: Image
somewhere in our profiles if we wanted. Like next to where some have their Ranyhyn, or the gender icon. But it's not easy to do that. And just putting it in the Store, and having it as one of our items didn't capture the way of honoring Tracie that I had in mind.

<<<<<---------- So I added it to my avatar. Jay doesn't have to do any work, and it does the job there very well.

If anyone's interested, and doesn't know how to do it themself, give me a pm. I'll whip it up for you. No, I can't change your av here, but I'll send you a new version of your av that you can plug in if you want.

Huggles Fisty |G

Mom is smiling I'm sure.
For Myles--
When evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love


For Mom--
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

Fly...fly high against the sky...
Thank you, thank you, thank God for you
The wind beneath my wings

Least I can do.
"It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past. Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.”

I would be VERY proud to display Furl's Fire in my avatar!
She had brought joy to our hearts and I enjoyed reading the posts she had made.

Hail Traci!
Have you hugged your arghule today?

My guess at Furls' reaction - " :oops: "

(something like that :biggrin: )

Oh yes...

A question, should I put it in Mom's sig or maybe add it to her av? Or should we leave her profile alone?

My own opinion on that, for what it is worth, is that this is a tribute to Furls, so I would leave her signature and avatar alone.

But, bottom line. I think you should do what you and your dad feel is best. Regardless of what any of us think.

Yeah, it's our tribute to her. She wouldn't want even that, but I don't care. :lol: But she wouldn't do it for herself, eh?

Great idea, Fist. 8)

I tried putting it in my avatar but it doesn't have the prominence there that it deserves (too much of the same color). I'll keep it in my sig, I guess...

OMG Fisty and Fire Daughter - I'm so sorry for your loss! I had no idea (but then I've been AWOL so long here with just the most fleeting appearances...) :cry:

I'll put some Fire in my signature too...in memory of a fine lady!
