Anyone know if Sapphisto is OK?

Hey folks, I've run out of options, so I thought I'd post here. Does anyone know if Sapphisto is OK? Last I heard from her was in late October, when she wrote, "I'm lousy, and I had to take my poor wee pup back to the shelter. LONG story, can't really talk about it. Devastated. Just devastated."

Being the person I am, I wrote back and told her I was sorry to hear it, but I didn't pry.

But now her twitter handle is giving an 'internal server' error; her photography websites are gone; her mobile phone # doesn't work--pretty much everything has been shut down.

I'm fearing the worst, as I had a similar thing happen with another very-private friend (he gave me one last cryptic message and then stopped responding. I began searching obituaries about a month later. Turns out he had a brain tumor, and died.)

Oh God, I drifted away from this site when it went so quiet in here and knew nothing of this.

Sapphisto, I hope you are OK.

Re: Anyone know if Sapphisto is OK?

I haven't heard anything from Sapph. I sent her a message on FB some time ago but she didn't reply. Hopefully she's ok but unfortunately there's no way to find out.

RIP Bally - You will be sorely missed

Re: Anyone know if Sapphisto is OK?

Hi folks, I haven't found an obituary or death record, but if she went back to Ireland, I'm not sure I'd be able to find it in the US.

The whole giving-up-the-rescue-dog thing still makes me think that she was ill. (I'm now of that age where it isn't rare to have friends getting diagnosed with fatal illnesses.)

Thanks for letting us know, Mary. Oh dear, it all seems very ominous.

That is worrying.

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

Re: Anyone know if Sapphisto is OK?

Hi folks, I did my monthly internet search and found more info. In October of 2013, she listed all of her studio photography equipment for sale, and her camera.
