Not sure if this is where I should post this or not. However, Linda (Boo) died yesterday after a long battle with cancer. She originated the idea of preserving Sims files so if a site disappeared, the files would be available. She was also a great creator for Sims 1. A dear friend, she is missed. Ginnie

She was smart enough to download lots of things from lots of sites, so if the creators had a file share policy, then we can create groups for them.

My condolences to you and to the entire simming community, Ginnie. Is there a site where thoughts are being posted (do you know)?

Her FAcebook page is here: https://www.facebook.com/Boo28705. And posted there is this: We have had so many people reach out to Andrea and I... we want to thank everyone. Mom has so many life long friends and many that she has met over the years online, through mutual interests and in person. Please know that she truly cherished and bragged about you all.

Per mom's request she wanted to be cremated and her ashes let go over the mountains in NC. She did not want a formal funeral service.

She just wanted everyone to celebrate her life and "have a strong cup of coffee" on her behalf.

We are going to keep her facebook account. So everyone grab a coffee cup, raise it and share a toast to her.

We would love it if everyone would do so and post a picture on mom's Facebook page and share your story on how/when you first met mom.

Love,
Andi Lynch and Toni Randall

She did a lot of stuff, and not just in the community. I frankly have no idea how she did everything in a 24 hour day!

I think her heart was with TS1, although she did create some things for TS2.  She was also the fastest at uploading and downloading files that I've ever seen.  I'd say "such and suxh site" was closing, and within days she's have gotten the entire site!

You are so right about how welcoming she was. She avoided all of the drama that sometimes happens> Ginnie

Oh I am so sorry Ginnie consol1 I didn't know her, but as a fellow Simmer, it doesn't mean that I am not sad at her passing.

TY, Lorry. Known her since 2002, when I got into Saving the Sims. She very calmly guided me through the setting up of the first groups that I did, which was a big help to me. Ginnie
