I remember the the first time that she sent me a Freep e-mail. I was so flattered and honored because she didn't even really know me, and she even signed it, “Darlene.”

I am going to sit down now and have a cigarette in honor of SheLion. Maybe I’ll make it a ten cigarette salute. : )

Sad news.

She was one who stood up for what is right and didn’t kowtow.

My heartfelt sympathies to her loved ones.

It's funny, it's been seven years since my first Freepmail exchange with her, but I remember the exact same thing! I'm still legitimately bummed about this. I always get a little sad for a short time when a freeper passes away, but Darlene was the first "freeper friend" of mine to do so. I think the regret of never getting to meet her in "real life" is adding to my sadness.

Thanks, everyone, for the heartfelt comments on this thread.

You folks know that I’m just going to keep pinging Darlene along with Gabz whenever I see another thread about smokers being abused.

I think she’d want that.
She’d want to keep up the fight.
(Whenever her Husband allows her to, that is)

;-)

While I was looking for a post of yours so I could ask about her I had a bad feeling. I was right. Funny how that works.

Rest in peace. I joined her a few times on anti-smoking threads, having much fun tearing apart the antis. I surely hope it wasn’t lung cancer that got her.......rest in peace, Shelion, rest in peace.

She may have remarried, but her first husband died on my birthday a number of years ago, which I always felt strange about.

Many years ago, Darlene was going off on an opponent on her favorite issue. I told her to just let them be themselves and keep on posting their posts as they do. I said, “The venom of your enemy will make you more friends than you can imagine, because others don’t want to be like them.” She agreed.

She’s a warrior. As long as we remember her, she’ll always be with us. Fighting the good fight.

Ping to ya, Darlene! I’m happy that you and your Husband are together again for eternity!

“I hear her voice
In the mornin hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin down the road I get a feelin
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads.”
