Another good one gone  
One of the nicest people I ever knew in fandom was Sally Syrjala, a mainstay of NFFF who brightened up LASFAPA and other apas. She lived on Cape Cod and didn't like visiting the mainland, but I had the pleasure of meeting her at Noreascon in 1980. I hadn't heard from her and years and I just got back the latest zine I sent her marked DECEASED.

Oh, yes, I remember Sally. A highly congenial apamate whom I recall fondly.

I remember her but hadn't thought of her in ages. Looked her up on legacy.com and it turned out she died in August 2010.

Oh, yes ... a most pleasant person, and a more interesting writer than most of the mainstays of the NFF. I hadn't seen anything by or about her in years, but I'm sad to discover that she's dead.

I'm sorry for your loss.
