RIP, Buslady

She hasn't posted here in a long while but veteran Technodrome member, Buslady, a good friend of mine for many, many years has passed away yesterday from a stroke.

RIP, Buslady. I had some correspondence with her 'back in the day' and she was awesome.

Man, really? That's terrible, she used to post here all the time in the early/mid 2000's.

How did you hear about this?

Oh wow, RIP.

For those who weren't around when she posted here, she's in this video (NOT Iveyangelo AKA "Turtle Girl" but the woman who drove a bus)-

We're FB friends and her relatives and husband have made it known.

Man, according to her profile she was only 46? That's extremely young too, I thought she was much older.

Her last log in date was in 2015, I remember she hated the way the Nick Turtles looked when they were first revealed.

I remember she was super annoyed with my E-mails in the TMNT-L mailing list eons ago in the late 90s (and why wouldn't she? they were super annoying), but she came around. She shed a lot of light even when I was in my darkest times as a dumb kid. She was a super caring, super insightful woman. In the 2000s we were totally cool. I had no idea she was even literally a bus lady until then. She would always comment on goings on in social media, even all the way up to the present, and we'd keep up.

Just saw Hero's post on FB. Wish I'd have known her better, but what I remember is all great.

Man.I talked to her often on FB over the years. She had a true love of all things turtle (raised/bred some). Last post I saw of her was she was in the process of moving one of her turtles to a bigger area.

RIP my friend.

Oof. That sucks. We were never close as I recall but we always got along fine. Again, as best I recall.

Sad. Nobody knows when it's their turn.

RIP Buslady, I remember her screenname popping up in many discussions back in the mid 00's. All I knew about her was how she had a bus full of Raphael stuff IIRC. I know I would've loved that as a kid, hell as a teenager too. That was really cool on her part.
