GirlFallDown...BSBD

Recommended Posts

GirlFallDown was a cornerstone of this community.

I am not a skydiver - merely someone who regularly peruses the site. I had some interaction with her in the pub. I enjoyed her posts.

I was shocked to read the news. I can imagine how much worse it is for people who knew her.

My deepest condolences to her friends and family.

We talked about getting together with her and Bob in Vegas in a couple weeks for the WSOP. I was so looking forward to that.

Wow, I just got even more sad realizing I might have seen her so soon. (I'll be in the WSOP this year).

The FAKE KRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMER!!!!!!!!!

Option A/ you never get to meet her. Therefore, think that what happened to her is a shame. You'll survive it. Moving on. Another one bites the dust.
Option B/ you did meet her. Hurts like hell. Wonder "why her?".



Option C/ I really wished i've met her in real life, hurts like hell, and wonder why Her. Been drunk since 11am, am still drunk.

Too true, I just came back from lunch and was seeing if there were any updates from Ohio, and read about Shannon. My heart instantly hit the floor. I like many people have chatted with her and was looking forward to meeting her someday. I am deeply saddened by this and all of my best wishes go out to Bob and to Shannon's family.

Ha, that reminds me of the many times when she first started using the Pub (before she was an Op) she'd change her name to ZUUL and just start kicking everyone out and talking so much shit. I don't believe I've ever laughed so hard looking at a computer monitor in all my life. And I definitely can't forget the countless number of times we'd discuss the intracacies of anal sex in front of the 10 or 20 people just chatting away.... [:/]

I still feel like the wind has been knocked out of me. This reaaaaally hurts.

I cannot believe how many of you, including myself had a pm relationship with Shannon. She was truly a post whore extraordinaire!

God, I loved that woman.:(:(:(

Definitely. We knew each other in person, but our friendship really seemed to blossom during our online activities - getting much more personal and closer than we ever would be when meeting up at the DZ. I knew I was going to get big hug from her whenever I saw her. I'm going to miss those.

For GFD:

Remember those who fall before you
And those to yet fall past
Let them be a reminder too true
That this life happens fast

Watch over us from blue skies
And guard us from black death
Watch o'er us with angel's eyes
And let your soul find rest.

Alot of us got to hold her for a moment to.... thats the picture I cant post.... she jumped on me because according to her "wow, you look shorter in your avatar, I can climb you" and she did for a picture. Okay the whole past tense talk, yup not ready for that.,.... I really hope that there is a heaven, just so she knows how we feel, is positive of how we feel and that while she was with us we showed it in our actions. I want to remember her as she was.

I never met her before but we had chatted a few times online. I always thought she was cool as hell. Here was some random hot chick who took her time to chat with me. Heck she was looking for an original 1st edition copy of Groundrush for me one time. Who else would do that for a stranger?

I was lucky to meet the infamous GFD in Dublin this year. I just wish I could have gotten to know her better. [:/] She did pick out her Team 'Licious name...Shadylicious.

Blue skies, Shannon, you will be missed.

And Hippie, thanks for having us over last night. Your toast was beautiful.

I still can't believe Girlfalldown is gone. [:/] I just reread some pm's we sent each other a few times. She told me she never got pied for her 100th! :o She told me if I did get into BASE, to take a first jump course, and maybe we'd see each other at an exit point some day. [:/]
The death of someone you know/don't know real well can really put things into perspective. I am encouraged to live life more fully after hearing what happened to Shannon. There are no guarantees of tomorrow.

When I saw her for the first time I told her how hot she was. :)

I still feel like someone just shot the prom queen. :|



You know she must be reading this thread. And I'm convinced that she is laughing her ass off at that comment.

God I sure hope so, Bonnie. :)
-Ever done a 'search' with your userID in the search text and girlfalldown in the 'posts made by' field, and vice versa?

:D:D:D:D:D:D

When I pulled up the list, Shannon and I were always talking about men, porn and screwing.

Damn I wish I could have saved those IM chats...I think those were the only times we actually talked about 'serious' stuff. :S:(

I made a toast?! :o AND it was beautiful? By then I must have been slurring everything, much less have the ability to form a coherent thought.
Although, Im sure she saw it and was laughing uncontrollably. Thanks for being there. :)

Shannon's sense of humor was as fine tuned as Pavarotti's voice! Her sense of humor was truly a gift that very few people on this earth could mimic. After I re-injured my head, she sent me pms that were so damned funny it literally hurt so bad because it was painful for me to laugh.B|

What she could pack into just one sentence was pure genius.
