Rest in Peace Thinking Woman

It is my sad task to inform you all that our friend we all knew as "the Thinking Woman" suddenly passed away on Saturday April 14 2012.
I received this news via an e-mail from a friend who took care of the running business and found my e-mail address in her laptop.
What she always told me that she had diabetes turned out to be pancreatic cancer and when this was discovered it was too late.

Every morning I got up at 5 am to chat with her , because of the time difference between the Netherlands this was 10 pm her local time..
I grew to love her very much and knew Thinking Woman very well and on a personal level, we even had future plans together..
She was a lovely gentle compassionate woman and I loved every chat or talk in Skype where I sometimes sang her a song playing my guitar..
Then , sometimes she did not come online but the next day she was there again and told me she had been to the hospital because of her diabetes and it was nothing to worry about ..
But this was never more than 1 day 2 days at most .
On the morning of April 14 she came online also after have been away for a few days in the hospital.. as usual she did not want me to worry..
Then it went silent ..
After a week she still had not been online I GOT worried and asked everyone if they heard anything of the Thinking Woman..
My worries came true in the worst possible way when I received the message of her passing .

On Sodahead the Thinking Woman was a true liberal atheist freethinker who saw through the conservative smokescreens like they were not there and slapped the posters with irrefutable facts and knowledge.
Well what do you expect, she had several PHD's and used to be a high school English teacher.
Her clear view of reality got her the usual insulting replies from radical christian/conservatives who could not win the "debate"
Most of the knowledge I have about America and its systems I learned from her.

She also was a woman who took great pride in her native American heritage and she could talk to horses , a true horse whisperer.
The Thinking woman also was a great lover of nature and life ..
The past year has been one of problems and hardship to her , but like the woman she was , she did not wanted to worry any one so most of you may never have noticed it.
I think I was one of the few who knew what was really going on.

She leaves a huge gap in my personal life that cannot easily be filled..

With love , to a lady who died too soon

burning candles
thankyou
You!

    She was a true friend, a dependable fellow combatant for truth, and had a heart as big as anyone I've ever known. The world seems a little sadder today. Rest in Peace, my dear friend.

    Truly sad. Perhaps karma needed her to be reborn at this time to be a powerful voice at a key moment.

    In your memorial text you stated, "On Sodahead the Thinking Woman was a true liberal atheist freethinker who saw through the conservative smokescreens like they were not there and slapped the posters with irrefutable facts and knowledge." Unquote.


    You posted, "She is in a much better place."

    Just what place would that be??? No disrespect intended. I just want to know where you think atheist go after they die.

    The best and most gifted of all of us just seem to be the first ones to leave earth. Truly is a shame. One of the reasons I don't believe in fatih anymore. Taking all of those who seem to have something special, and probably could even change the world. I never really heard of her I'm afraid, but she sounds like a wonderful women. She is in a much better place.

    That is truly sad news. She never let on to me that she was sick. She had told me that she had been in a car accident and broke some ribs. She was a fun person to talk too. I really liked her a lot because she could see clearly and had a great sense of humor.

    She was planning on coming down to Minneapolis for coffee this summer, and I thought that would have been great fun. Hanging out and laughing hysterically on a sidewalk together having coffee on a sunny day. I'll miss her, and I really didn't know her.

    I did not know Thinking Woman but I can tell from what you say this is a very major loss for you. So sorry to hear this as I do know of such loss. The difference is I was married to her.

    May she rest in peace indeed and may the Lord help you through your loss.
