In Memoriam: FlyerTalk Members Who Have Departed

Recently, there have been several threads regarding the passing — or departure, to use more appropriate FlyerTalk vernacular and lexicon — of FlyerTalk members.

Unfortunately, as the membership of FlyerTalk grows, so will the departure of FlyerTalk members increase in frequency.

The death of a FlyerTalk member can be sad and traumatic, and to remember and respect that person can be the greatest gift we could offer.

Please help remember those FlyerTalk members who have departed for the last time by posting links to threads dedicated to them in this thread so that they may be compiled and easily searchable.

Thank you in advance. May the following FlyerTalk members rest in peace:

FlyerTalk is truly a community and we hurt when we lose one of our own. A member came to us recently and suggested that we note these members. We have decided to do so by putting "In Memoriam" under their handles. We tend to learn about the deaths of members who were very engaged in FlyerTalk. This lets others know of their passing, and also keeps folks from directing questions to them.

Excellent idea.

Still hurts to read of their passing though.
