I knew this forum was the right one for me to hang around when I read Princess' posts early on, her passion and humanity made the forum a calming pastime for me when I first joined DA.....

It's a sad day for the DA community to lose an individual with such a big heart.

RIP Princess, you will be sorely missed, especially by those of us who had the honor and pleasure of interacting with you the last 10 or so years.

I am not a religious person, but in my heart Princess is now an angel.

I never got the chance to interact with Princess but I have read dozens of her posts which are all nothing but helpful and courteous. The info she contributed to this site is invaluable and will forever be a huge asset to anyone who seeks info about their Honda. And though I joined this site after her time spent here was finished, her presence here was/is huge and lingering.
The world needs more Princesses and apparently God needed one more as well.

My thoughts and prayers to her family. Please know how much she will be missed in this community.

Rest in peace, Princess!

I just read her last post about the surgery. She spoke about the possibility of infection post surgery but was still very positive. Even then she was still worried about Prince being ok.

I'll never forget sitting in her living room after have met for the second time. We had conversations like we'd know each other for years.

Prince worked on my car even though it was his birthday. The world needs more people like them.

Here she is for the guys who don't know what she looks like.

I just looked at her tag line 'Ready to go...'

My heart sank last night when I read the email from RTF regarding Princess's passing. She was a joy to meet and I' was blessed to have had the opportunities I did to sit down with her and Chris for a few dinners as I passed through where they lived.

She's a large part of the success of this forum through the 6th and 7th generation Accords. I was just a young kid in college when I first started talking to her. I'll miss her and her bubbly personality.

OMG, I had no idea she was even ill. Last thing I saw from her was that she was back in Texas and I was hoping to get another chance to meet up with her at last. Her helpful post is what brought me to DA in the first place. An internet search for steering wheel lights (since I thought something was wrong with mine) brought me to her post on adding them to the 03' and it quickly became one of my first mods. Her assistance when you had an issue was not only helpful, but done so very quickly. Always was polite on the boards and happy to help. Today is truly a sad, sad day.

RIP Princess. You will be deeply missed.

Maybe you could post the news in the 7th gen forum in a closed thread with a link back to this thread. I know there are many who will want to know about this but may not frequent The Pit. Just a suggestion.

Thanks, Coach. I was taken aback by the news. I have never conversed with her, but I knew her through her posts. They were of the highest quality I have seen on any forum.

There was a time, over the years when I would search for her posts, just to see if she had made any, because I wondered if she was still alive. I was elated to see that she had "kicked cancer's butt".

My condolences go out to her family and loved ones. I am now saddened and will miss her. Her posts will live on, here on DA.

I saw the post on her Facebook page last night. Her passing is/was a real shock to me as well as I had just bounced some text messages with her around the holidays.

Princess..... I will miss our conversations, but I know that you will be with us. Please do what you can to watch over us and even give us the little kick in the a$$ as needed.

Prince..... You and everyone else is in our thoughs and prayers! My contact info is in her phone if you'd ever want to contact me.

Very sad news indeed. I remember interacting with her years and years ago on this forum. She indeed was one of the people that made this forum what it is. She will be missed. I really don't know what else to say except I was so impressed with her faith and strength as she fought through these health issues.
