Our hearts are heavy as we remember with love AgnosticSpirit, who died Wednesday morning.
She was a vital, vibrant member and host of the Community who touched the hearts and minds of all of us who found her walking life's journey with us at Beliefnet.
She joined Beliefnet in 2008 and gave greatly of herself to the Community. She blogged thoughtfully and with great sensitivity. She was much loved and widely respected by the members, which led the Community to vote her one of the top finalists for 2009 Beliefnet Member of the Year.
She was instrumental in setting up the Agnosticism forum, and she was its founding host. She was also a founding host of the Hot Topics Zone. Additionally, she hosted the Addictions & Recovery, Discuss Atheism, Discuss Islam, and US News & Politics forums. And she led the Beliefnet Knowledgebase group, as well as the Help Without Borders, Bnet Book Club, and Bnetters Against Activity Feed! groups.
As a testament to her gifts to the Community, a number of threads in memory and celebration of her life have been started throughout the Community. You can find them on the Hot Topics Zone, Discuss Atheism, Discuss Islam, Agnosticism, US News & Politics, Addictions & Recovery, and the Beliefnet Knowledgebase. Please post your memories of her to one of these threads, if you feel so inclined.
Our hearts go out to her family and friends.
She will be greatly missed and we mourn her passing. Yet her spirit and her gifts remain with us in the Community.
