It has been brought to my attention in the last hour that Tanknetter Carman Sinclair (Dame Karmen - TN member since 2004), died of lung cancer in May.  I'm not sure how many of the TN membership knew this already or knew her.  I was her friend both here and off-line.

 

This is quite a loss for me, personally.

RIP.

 

I had been wondering, as she had "gone quiet" of late.

 

Makes me wonder how many others who have "gone quiet" are still topside looking down on the grass vs. looking up at it from six feet under.

 

She has been, and will continue to be missed.

It didn't sound like she had am easy go of it in life, but she was always of generally good spirits and certainly had her hands full with this crew.  But she persevered as one of our very few ladies (and she seemed like a dame).   I liked her and her presence a lot, and she will be missed.

She was a great addition to this site, may she rest in peace and without pain.  She will be sorely missed.

Did not know this, thought that she just took a long vacation from the site, as soem times in the past. I am very sad to hear this, and especially after such a long time.

 

Dame Karmen, rest in peace. 

 

And even though this is a bit strange place to say this, I want to thank Rocky for telling us.

RIP Dame Karmen :(

 

I was wondering about her of late.

 

I found it amusing that one woman could balance out this bunch knuckleheads. :)

Pam Cassie and I are sad to hear this news. We had spoken a lot over the years after she and
GWB had stayed at the house

She had said she was getting treatment but did not say for what always change the topic to Pam and casie.

She came here to learn about the fate of her uncles in France.

She was our Dame. RIP. u will be missed

I looked up her old posts, she told us last October and sort of said her good byes.  She definitely knew she was terminal with lung cancer.

 

RIP, I wish I had noticed last fall.
