I know that this is an older thread, but I just saw it. I remember CW very well. I was absent from the AW forums for quite some time and when I returned, I wondered why I didn't see her around any more. Now I know.

You were such a friendly, energetic person. I treasure the rep points that I received from you over the years. I'll never forget your kind words, Catcuswendy. I hope that your eternal reward is a giant bookstore where everything is free.

You certainly deserve it.

I still miss her.

I used to post something and then ask her to tell me if I was being mean.

A dark, evil place.
It's hard to believe it's been over a year now.

And, yeah, I still miss her.

I was away for over a year, and never knew. Now I'm sad and wish I could have offered condolences at the time.

I didn't know her well, but we chatted a few times and she once sent me a story of hers no one else had read.

I will miss her.

Lor, has it been over a year already?

I still miss her too. Hope she's having fun in that big free bookshop

I just found this thread. I wasn't here at the time. Oh, Cactuswendy, I remember you so well. I pray you see this thread. How many lives you touched! How you are missed!

I have been away for a while - I did not know she was gone. I am crying now, I liked her very much and will "miss the snot out of her"
Good bye Wendy, I miss you like crazy.

Cactus Wendy introduced me to AWC. I was too shy back then to participate and not strong enough to take the leap. And then life got crazy here. But every day, Cactus Wendy would grace my thoughts. When I met her, she was renting a bedroom in someone's home and wasn't permitted use of the kitchen. I suggested she keep lettuce and salad fixings in her room because they would not spoil without refrigeration if they didn't sit around too long. CW responded with something along the lines of: Rabbit food? I need meat (girl), not rabbit food!

Cactus Wendy, I love you now as much as I loved you then. And I'm sad you're not here. But I know I'll meet you again, if only as atoms and molecules and a sigh from God.

We still think of her often.

How could it POSSIBLY be ten years since we lost CactusWendy?

Dang -- don't let anyone tell you an online community isn't a real place, full of real people. I still miss Wendy, and think of her often.

I can't believe it's been 10 years. Raising a glass of popcorn
