Mama give me my medicine, the one that makes me feel so tall.

Filter – Welcome to the Fold.

This one goes way back for me.  I remember on ECNet that there used to be a user who stayed in her own channel and pretty much hung around IRC all day.  People gravitated toward her.  Back then, ECNet had a shoutcast server, and I would volunteer to DJ for “ECNet Radio”.  One day I played this song, and after I did so, I got a request to send a copy to this particular person.

As it turns out, she was alone, no family or kids to take care of her.  If I recall, she had cancer and was terminal.

At Christmas time several years ago now, she asked for several people’s address, and I received a postcard in the mail from her, all the way from the UK.  I think I still have the card somewhere.

Not long later, she wasn’t on IRC anymore, and that was that.

I don’t know what else to write.
