This morning as I sipped my coffee, I check my messages only to find out my admin has passed away. She was only thirty-two. Her family says it was from a heart attack. Manda Pendleton (Queen of Brutality) was her name, and she was one of the hardest metal promoters out here. Her love for the music was unparalleled by few. When she joined my network, she was beyond enthusiastic about what we could accomplish. Though my members number less than 50, she was responsible for practically half of those individuals joining (people are signing up as I compose this discussion still as a result of her influence).
I didn't know Manda very well at all, nor for very long. We "met" via Facebook, and she was the inspiration behind my return to Ning a few months back. Through her, I realized that if I'm going to involve myself in creating a social community, it should be something I'm passionate about. She flew the Metal Flag high, and carried her horns with pride. My nickname for her was "Queenie", and she was most definitely Metal Royalty.
I've already posted a eulogy of sorts at my network, but I thought I'd share her memory here since without her, I would have never returned to Ning. She was more than my admin, she was a great and wonderful person who I would have liked nothing more to have gotten to know better.
Sorry for your loss, very sad, so young.
Thank you ragots.
You have my deepest sympathy
Thank you kindly, J.
Wow, sorry to hear of your loss... I can imagine how you are feeling bro, have my deepest sympathy.
Thanks. Her legacy still lives on in the people who she loved and who loved her, and the bands and fans she worked with.
I'm sorry to hear about your loss, and sorry for Amanda's family and other friends. Life is so fragile.
Thanks, Jen. She was really such a great person, and I can only imagine what her family and close friends are going through. The last I heard from her, she said she was sick, but didn't make it seem like it was a big deal. This came as a complete shock.
Gonna miss her saying "hun" all the time.
Sorry for your loss... RIP
Thank you Marcelo.
