    To quote Mark Twain:

    Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I'm alive and well and enjoying my first day of summer vacation.

    Thanks to those who sought me out for confirmation.

    This is true...a rare gift to see the depth of your impact. So often these things are unsaid and unheard until one passes.

    Seems that it was a blessing in disguise. Too often it's not till someone passes away that we find we didn't get a chance to express the huge impact they've had in our life.

    At least the good thing is that you are well thought of here.

    Be glad you did. I was rather upset.

    A pox on the evil "goodbye" person.

    We really do miss you Alice. I'm so sad that this cyberbully has made you feel so unwelcome and I'm livid that he/she has followed you to your other boards. I wish you well and hope that in time you might find it appropriate to come back here. You are missed.

    I am so glad the news is good! What kind of cold hearted person would report something so awful? That makes me HIGHLY mad.

    I missed all the drama. Darn.

    Glad to see you, haven't seen you on in a while.

    (Also, if this person has been harassing you for an extended period of time, you can get their IP address, provided it isn't a proxy, from a forum moderator/administrator, get the general area of the poster, contact the sheriff's office for their county/their state police along with evidence of harassment, then they can subpeona the ISP for the information of the individual)

    This reminds me of my dad. He's not alive now, but when he was an old acquaintance saw him and said, "I thought you were dead!" My dad responded saying that exact same quote from Mark Twain! :) Glad you are well.

    Yes, there was a thread with that horrible rumor and the person had the nerve to include a bible verse.
