    Maggie thank you for the warm welcome when I joined Silver Stackers.

    Maggie thank you for the sound advice when I asked for help.

    May the passion of the sun and the serenity of the moon be with you always.

    Rest In Peace Maggie.

    Only seen this now - very saddened by the news....

    I have only done 2 transactions on this site, Maggie was my first - what a pleasure to deal with. You will be sorely missed.

    Condolences to family and friends.

    R.I.P.

    Rest In Peace, Maggie. Know your warmth and kindness touched many through your words and the little extra curious things we'd find in packages from you.

    I was just looking at some hand pours this evening that I received from Maggie and I remembered how patient and helpful she was. I counted the PMs in my inbox today and I have less than 200 total messages, but 25 of them are from Maggie.

    I haven't been around the forums much for months and so had no idea. I'm so sorry to hear about Maggie passing away. :(

    I also only just returned to the forum after a break due to HSC schoolwork and i found this very sad =[
    Maggie was the first person to help me out on trades and she will be missed.
    RIP

    wow.

    I got this very unfortunate news after sending her an email and got a reply from her husband... such shocking news... :(

    So many thoughts going through my mind, but I feel like everyone here has expressed them already. A beautiful soul - very kind and a great positive attitude.

    Heart goes out to the family

    She will be very much missed - SS has lost a truly great member.

    Hard to believe it's been 5 months already. Just found some capsules and a sweet note from Maggie... Then realized it's the 28th. Gone but never to be forgotten :)

    Coming to terms with loss/death is our biggest challenge. I know that deep in my heart.
    Can I share this with all those who loved Maggie?


    Reluctance
    By Robert Frost
    Out through the fields and the woods
    And over the walls I have wended;
    I have climbed the hills of view
    And looked at the world, and descended;
    I have come by the highway home,
    And lo, it is ended.

    The leaves are all dead on the ground,
    Save those that the oak is keeping
    To ravel them one by one
    And let them go scraping and creeping
    Out over the crusted snow,
    When others are sleeping.

    And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
    No longer blown hither and thither;
    The last lone aster is gone;
    The flowers of the witch hazel wither;
    The heart is still aching to seek,
    But the feet question 'Whither?'

    Ah, when to the heart of man
    Was it ever less than a treason
    To go with the drift of things,
    To yield with a grace to reason,
    And bow and accept the end
    Of a love or a season?

    Every single time I sign in, I remember our Maggie, I still keenly feel the void she left behind but am grateful for knowing her enough to know what we have lost.

    There is a thread here about the predatory pray series that gets bumped every now and them and Maggie started the thread, Every time I see it with a new post added and see her name I remember that shes gone. Weird to miss someone you never meet but will never forget.

    It is amazing the hole that has been left in the stacking community by our much loved Maggie. It reach's far and wide across the world.
    Anonmiss - speaking of the predator -prey series, we indeed purchased a few of the first issue from Maggie, with some of our customers knowing this they asked if we could get some of the second issue.
    When speaking to Armageddon mint we discussed Maggies passing, for me it was a new recognition of how far and wide Maggies passing effected the stacking community, not only individual stackers but business' as well.
    Maggie had a great relationship with most of the business' that grace the boards here at silverstackers plus a whole heap more overseas. Maggie bought stackers the items that would normally be out of reach for many, she had big shoes with a large footprint that I doubt will be able to be filled by anyone anytime soon.
    Not only a hole in the stacking community but holes in the hearts of stackers that had the pleasure of dealing with her.
