Our beautiful Lipstick has gone on.

Please share your thoughts and memories.

I’ll always remember Lippy and Michael comparing notes on what countries they had been to. Her globe-trotting was incredible. I loved when she took trips with her family and shared the pictures with us. She had a great eye for composition in photography, too. I wish I could find that gorgeous picture of a fjord she took.

I got to meet her two times and those were a privilege. Last time we met she was worried about my knee aches. Kindness

I don’t have more words, this is just inexplicably sad.

Thanks, lw. I’ll always remember her ferrets and her fashion posts.

It’s especially hard to lose someone you’ve known for, sheesh, 12 years? Maybe 13? People you thought you’d get to talk to daily for 20 – 30 years keep leaving this mortal coil early.

Lesson learned: post more, comment more.

Oh, poor Lipstick. She had such a good heart.

My heart is still broken.

Taken far too young. We’ll miss you Lipstick.

Mrs. Geezer and I met Lipstick (and Sobek) on one of our trips to Las Vegas.
I remember her Ferrets!
(A bundle of fun in a fur coat?) wasn’t that what she used to call them?

Lipstick had a generous heart. The world is a little colder without her. I will miss her.

On an unrelated, or I guess slightly related, note that I bet Lipstick would have laughed at: I was writing a sympathy card for my deputy supervisor, who lost a very close friend unexpectedly. When you lose someone unexpectedly, you often think about the last thing you said to them and that you didn’t get to tell them you loved them, etc., so I was trying to offer the comfort that her friend must have known how much she cared about her, because it was obvious to me from how she talked about her. Unfortunately, the way I phrased it made it sound like I thought she had romantic feelings for her friend. Ack!!!

I *think* I saved it in the end, though.

You guys probably know this but here is how Lipstick got her handle: https://michaelscomments.wordpress.com/2007/11/05/the-fabulous-moolah-dies/#comment-125691

12. geoff - March 12, 2017

I missed that. Thanks, Brew.

Mrs. Peel: My last conversation on the phone with my friend Stan I ended with “I love you Stan”. I said it jokingly, to make him uncomfortable, but it was true. I loved him like a brother and it hurt terribly when he died later that week. He was very sick, but didn’t tell anybody because he didn’t want to make a fuss. He’s buried at Arlington now.

14. S. Weasel - March 12, 2017

Oh, gosh. I had no idea. Thanks for the heads up, geoff. How very sad.

15. skinbad - March 12, 2017

She was classy and funny and smart. I’ll miss her.

16. Mrs. Peel - March 12, 2017

DBS – exactly, that kind of caring was what came through in her voice when she talked about her friend. I hope I got the message across despite my inept phrasing.

On another note, the opening hymn at church this morning was A Mighty Fortress is Our God, which of course made me think of Michael.

17. Tushar - March 12, 2017

Oh my God.

18. Cathy - March 13, 2017

Oh, how sad. Even though she was Michael’s friend first and foremost, she was kind to me, even after he was gone. And I’m very grateful for that.

I always thought I’d get to see her again…

19. Jimbro - March 13, 2017

That post with the footie pajamas near broke my heart

20. Mitchell - March 14, 2017

This is such horrible news. She used to live here in Las Vegas and we had lunch a couple times. I bought a pistol from her husband before they moved to California.

I always thought I’d see her again.
