    She posted here quite frequently for some time.

    Losing people sucks, but such is life.

    Mmmm... my thoughts are with her loved ones. I lost a loved one a week ago Thursday, and... yeah. Tera was part of the Mac family. She'll be missed.

    Yep. In her words:

    "Best Forums
    They rattle my cage over there regularly but no other forum for Macs is better than MacRumors forums. I never imagined there could be that many topics that are Mac related (and that many folks who seem to be online ALL the time-- government employees?).

    Regardless, if you want to join into an online community you can start elsewhere, but your writing, thinking, and posting skills will get challenged, sharpened, and improved at MacRumors Forums."

    Does anyone know if she's still registered here and if she is her username? I would like to read her posts.

    46... too young.. when people die at that age it hurt all the more simplely because thats about 50% of the normal life.. when you die at 80 i mean then you were around for a while... darn your cancer... but we keep going, keep using our Mac, just as she did...

    I don't know think this could be her only screenname, but here is one:

    tpatricks

    It was true that there was a lot of ribbing back and forth... I'm glad she saw it in good humor. I didn't always agree with her, and I'm sure I was the ribber and possibly the ribbee at some point, but again, she's part of the family. ;)

    Wow. Michael Bartosh and Tera Patricks removed from the Macintosh community. 2006 has not been kind.

    For some reason I'm terribly shocked. I haven't read Mac360 for a few months, but I usually go through those stints of reading it for a while and then stopping. I did always like her insight and tips, though, as it wasn't pure Apple fandom that has overtaken a lot of blogs/news sites. Also, it wasn't pure contrarian like the rubbish that is applematters.

    Oh well, as long as John Gruber and John Siracusa are still kicking, I'm fully satisfied.

    I think the Jan 1, 1955 is a fake birthdate. ;) The picture and links are all her. It's either that or an elaborate and senseless impostering, since she also claimed to be who she is in her posts.... ;)

    I think that's her.

    Here's one of her responses (post #15) in a Macbytes article.

    We have a multitude of people who were born on January 1st. It's easy because it's the default. The 1955 may be the default, as well.

    I hope that her family and friends find strength in their time together remembering her.
