She even included some bonus games with my purchase and put together a disk of some utilities I might need. Being an Amiga user of 20+ years I wasn't that familar with all things TOS and she generously took the time to exchange emails with me and help with a few of my questions. I sent her a sickly ZX81 by way of a thank you of sorts Like many of you I have enjoyed browsing the LogicSays site and looking at pictures of her ST mods and reading some of her helpful advice on this forum.
Such a tragic loss and my condolences go out to Colin and her family.

I miss our chats and projects we worked on. its not often you can find someone to worth together with and actually finish something together! Now and then I get emails who mention her and how supportive she was to Atari people. Had one just last week in fact while chatting to a guy who crossed my inbox from overseas. She sure helped a lot of people and I am sure will be missed for a long time to come.
Throughout our life we amass collections of friends and treasured possessions. Having close relationships help us feel as if we are not alone in the world. When we lose someone or something that is precious to us, we may realize that there is a certain aloneness that can never be filled. Ultimately the condition of life is one of being alone before God.

I met her once, in 2008 when I gave her my old Atari stuff - couldn't bring myself to bin it and couldn't be bothered to eBay it - and we handed it all over to her in a car park at Hatfield Peverel. I didn't want anything for it but she insisted on giving us a bottle of Baileys (IIRC). She was a happy, bubbly person I would have liked to know better.
My condolences to Colin, to the rest of her family and to you all here.
