    She is a current mod. She posts fireworks in the game thread every TD we score.
    She has been active as long as I can remember. She spent most of her time in the Too Hot forum.

    This is quite the shock for those of us who moderated with her.

    Prayers for her family.

    I posted earlier that I must have not seen her much lately as my memories of her were from when I frequented too hot where she was very active when I was years ago. I rarely frequent too hot now. If she posted recently I must have missed it. RIP

    Appreciate the information. I remember her as long as I've been on this board which has been from around 2003

    Along with you, wasn't nana one of the teachers on board? It seems that she was well-informed on education issues.
    So sad to hear this. Nana was a great one. :(

    She had been on the GC as late as 1/15/2020

    RayGator was the first to take notice and when he did Oklahoma and I started looking as best we could. We called, texted her and we were at the point to call the hospitals in her area.

    Then today I got a call asking if I was David Shepherd from Gator Country..I had a feeling bad news was about to come. Her son told me that Holly (his mom) had passed (I think he said two days ago). I asked if he minded me asking what happened. He was in tears talks, as was I, and simply said respiratory failure. I did not inquire any more other than to say how sorry I was.

    Yes, she was. If I recall correctly, she was a special ed teacher. She earned the stars in her crown for sure.

    It's funny how someone can touch the lives of so many on a website.

    She was fair, even handed, and consistent.

    To be sure we have so many great mods and contributers on this site. Have for a long time now.

    It's telling that her son could barely speak of the woman who gave him life.
    I will think of her as a great mother first and then think positively of her on this site.

    God Bless her and now she can say a couple Oh my's in heaven :)

    Hearing this is tough. While I didn't have a personal relationship with her I sure have become fond of the folks on this board. It sure is sad news. Selfishly, I'm getting to the age now when people pass on, I can't help think of my own mortality.

    Blessings to those she left behind that feel her loss the most.

    To a great Gator- Go Gators GatorNana!

    Dang, sad news indeed. I try to avoid too hot:devil:, but if there was ever a reasonable and kind person on there, it was her. All the best to her family.

    For those of us in here that are/were Too Hot regulars, She was a mod on that forum for quite some time.

    My heartfelt condolences to her family.

    RIP
