Remembering Sakura
« on: July 14, 2011, 11:43:14 AM »
Unless I'm mistaken, we lost m-gro 6 years ago today.  I think we all still miss the hell out of her.

I'll never forget reading about it on the front page and how my heart sank. 

It feels like so long ago, yet it also feels like yesterday.

We miss you Sakura. :(

RIP m-gro. I wasn't really a regular poster before she passed, but I still remember how devastated the boards were when the news came. I was brought to tears reading everyone's messages to her. She was clearly an incredible person who is still missed today.

I joined the site just after her passing, it was obvious then that her life had made a profound impact on many of the members here. It's a beautiful thing to see people here embracing her spirit.

One of the first things I thought of when the bare bones site came back up was not seeing that m-gro handle on the complaint thread.

She's still here in spirit and memory.

I too still remember the day I logged on here to find out. I remember opening the thread expecting it to be about her big move to the US :( She is still missed by many that is for sure :(

I always think about her on the 15th of July, it was the day I found out, I'll remember her every year on that date.

Miss you Sakura. :)

I'm in the same boat... My thoughts exactly.

It's heart-warming to know how the human spirit lives on in the lives of others who never even knew or had ever met Sakura Handa, which would include me.  Wish I could have bantered with her online, because from what I've read, she is described a someone warm, encompassing, and compassionate.  The world needs more Sakura Handas.

Rest in peace, gentle soul.
