I just received word from Marie, Rowlanda's friend, that Row passed away last night.

I spoke with Rowlanda's daughter yesterday late afternoon and she said the past two days had been very difficult and that Rowlanda had not opened her eyes or spoken yesterday. Her daughter felt that Rowlanda's time was quite near, and she was correct. As we closed our conversation I asked her daughter to try to communicate to Rowlanda that she had many friends on Sploofus and they missed her and wished her the best.

There may be some kind of services later on but Marie said the family had not made any decisions yet. Rowlanda's son is to arrive Friday I believe.

For those of you who know about Rowlanda's two little dogs, her daughter said she is taking the dogs.

I know those of you who have been around this place for a while will remember Rowlanda as a great player on Sploofus, an outspoken poster to SD, and a woman with a whole lot of spunk. She will be missed.

Thank you, Pat. I'm so sorry she's gone, she was a hoot. I was worried when my last email wasn't answered, she usually answered quickly, even if it was only a few words. I hoped against hope her feisty spirit would see her through. It just breaks my heart the misery she endured in her final months. She deserved so much better.

RIP dear lady.

Sorry to hear this. Row and I had our differences but I respect anyone who is not afraid to express their opinions and she was certainly in that category. I will miss her.

I am so saddened by this. Rowlanda was one of the first people I communicated with when I joined. She always encouraged me whenever an editor got me down. She made me feel welcome. Rowlanda, you were a brave woman. Rowlanda, I hope to see you when I return to forever. Sail on Angel.

This is sad news. The world is poorer indeed without her vibrant clear-eyed spirit that saw it like it was and told it like it was. Condolences to her family and to those of us on here who enjoyed her posts and friendship.

This is heartbreaking news. I enjoyed her spirited views on life and her S.D. posts. When we had an occasion to exchange private messages, Row and I developed a closer friendship and respect.

Row will be missed. This is a sad day for the 'Sploofus family".
