What happened? I am so sorry to hear this and on your loss Sharpie. So you were the one she mention to me in a message a while back about her great friend on this board who runs the place. I did not know who that person was but I'm glad she had you and you had her and you helped each other.i posted about this in sekret sources yesterday.
Lets just say , she rescued fsu from the jerk of my ex husband for me and also helped Anon with a lot of members vet bills.
I have been ugly crying for two days. It’s like losing my mother again.
I guess I started posting on message boards around 2000 and it was turn as from like 2000 to 2014 and figure skating took over for me all message boards really one message board at that time when they 2014 Russian Winter Olympics were taking place and Yulia and Adelina were all the rage and Plushenko was making his big comeback at home in the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
I received messages from TA between January and March. The messages came fast and furious for a couple months but it turned out to be a very fruitful relationship for me. I joined this board because golden skate was down when Zhenya went back to EG. I just had to read what people were saying because it was such a shocking coaching move. I thought TA was a very harsh on Zhenya and Aliona. I think I questioned her in one of the threads about not liking AK and then she sent me the 1st message about that and went over why so I could understand her perspective. And we did the same thing without Zhenya and she explained how she used to love Zhenya and then the coaching move that shocked the world changed everything. She really explained a lot to me about her thoughts on figure skating and especially Russian figure skating and her upbringing in Russia and her living in California and world travels. We also shared many messages about Putin and Trump and about what was going on in the world. We disagreed some and agreed on many things..
TA was nothing like her board persona with me. Maybe she sensed kindness in me but we got along fine and she was kind of an educator for me. Even down to what movies I should watch online.
I am super sad about this news but I was worried that something was wrong and I figured it was her mother that passed on because I did not hear from Tinami since March 20th. TA told me a couple months ago that her mother had been vaccinated and that she herself was waiting to be vaccinated I think.
Sometimes I wish I had never joined any internet forum in the last 20 years. After posting on the internet on different forums for about 20 years this is the worst news I've ever come across from a fellow member. I sometimes wish I had never found any of these forums. News like this about TA makes me wish that.
A child no matter their age should never pre decease a parent. I am so sorry for the mother of Tinami. I wish I could give that woman a Mother's Day hug. I will be spending Mother's Day with my mother. It means alot to me. Especially since her health is not good.
I am so sorry for your loss Sharpie.
