I just read on facebook that vaporlock (Phyllis) passed away this morning.

Many of us knew her as a great and amazing person, always in a good mood and so positive in her live.

We will all truly miss you!

Rest in peace!

Phyllis was a dear friend - and my special name for Vaporlock was Vapo. I met her on here and we became friends and have hung out a few times at YYZ meets. Vapo will always hold a special place in my heart.

Peace be with you Vapo.

Wow, I'm very saddened...

I've corresponded with her in the chat room before, she was incredibly sweet and I've never heard her say a mean thing. May she rest in peace, and I want to thank her for bringing so much positivity in the world. It's so difficult to accept that she is no longer with us.

WHAT??!!!!

I was absolutely shocked to read the thread title. Although I never met Phyllis, we corresponded a bit through email last July, and she was quite a frequent poster a few years ago.

Now that I reread the last email she sent me, she had mentioned she was sic, and I'm really sad that I never responded to it....

Also heartfelt condolences to Mr Spaceman; as I recall they lived together.

I am really sadden to read about this. I knew she was battling cancer for some time. She was such an awesome person who I never met in person but knew her well through joking around here in the forums and we even chatted on the phone a few times. I remember when she mailed me copies of the Toronto Star newspaper with Rush on the front cover. They had performed at the SARS benefit concert in 2004. We had the same taste in music, cars and aviation. She was such an awesome person and I hate that she was taken from us too early in life.

I've always known her as a friendly, energetic, positive, and outgoing person. I've nothing but positive things to say about her. She will definitely be missed by many members of this website including myself. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends, and acquaintances.

Rest in peace, Phyllis.

She was so excited to have a chat with us and so help others. She loved to tell us lots of stories such as about her family, her children, her a.net friends they met and aviation as well.

I'm not sure we were told/knew the she was like our mother...

Really genuinely saddened to hear this. I always used to enjoy our conversations in the chat room all those years ago and she is a true a.net legend, I'd wondered why I hadn't seen her around on the forums for ages. So sad to hear it was cancer too, I lost my grandmother to cancer in November and it was (and still is) hard to take.

Take care Phyllis

Just saw this on FB this morning and I'm just in tears. Phyllis was a dear, delightful lady. I met her in Toronto a few times. We shared a connection both being from Nothern Ontario and she always called me her Canadian girl. I was supposed to see her again in two weeks when Mr. Harlot and I were going to be in Toronto. I'm so sorry I won't get the chance to see her again.

I know wherever she is she's enjoying looking at float planes and laughing that hearty, contagious laugh of hers...and her "dam fine ass" continues on. I will miss my Northern Ontario girl very much.

I don't think she and Mr. Spaceman have been a couple for a while, but I am sure Chris is feeling her loss too, so hugs to you, Mr. Spaceman.

I think it'd be awesome if a.net created an "honor flight" page of sorts to memorialize its departed members. We're a long lived community here and when something like this happens that person's contributions to the community should be memorialized in some form other than a simple forum thread that will eventually sink far past the first page.

Although I never met Phyllis in person, she was one of the first people on A.net to reach out to me outside of the forums. I remember how wonderful it was to see another lady from Canada on A.net. We used to e-mail back and forth a fair bit, but I'm afraid I haven't spoken with her recently. It was long ago, but I really do hope that she knows how much that meant to me. Airliners.net certainly will not be the same without her. Though we may be shaken by this horrible loss, we can take comfort in knowing that she is now free from all pain and suffering.

A tribute, not to be cliche:

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

I had the honour of meeting Phyllis at a few of the YYZ meets and getting to know her as a friend.
Her enthusiasm for aviation and her infectiously positive outlook on life were contagious.

Phyllis was warm, kind, friendly and generous. She gave great hugs that could make a person feel wonderful. She was modest, yet confident; sensitive, yet brave; passionate, yet unpretentious. Phyllis was a remarkable human being with heart of gold.

I, like any who met her, will miss Phyllis dearly. She was one of our finest.

Such sad news, we chatted many times when I was a more frequent visitor to the chatroom and we always had fun conversations.

Goodbye Phyllis.

Phyllis aka Vapor Lock your soul is in the clouds scooting about the earth, we'll miss you very much. Such a friendly person to all of the people in Anet Chat. Peace be unto you.

This is heartbreaking. I feel bad because I hardly get to get on here as mush as I did in the past and when I do I don't normally read these forums anymore. She and I had many conversations on here and I am happy for all of them. Rest peacefully, Phyllis. You will always be a part of A.Net!

Very sad news! I remember we had some conversations in chat room, 2-3 years ago.

RIP, Vaporlock!

I remember nothing but fond memories of her. She was a sweet heart who did not deserve to die. She always had something positive to say about everyone. She had nothing negative to say. Very kind heart warming person. May you RIP Phyllis.

I am saddened to hear of Phyllis's passing. I had the great pleasure of meeting her at several of the great YYZ meets from days gone by. Each time I met her I was impressed by what a wonderful caring person she was and a was always left with a smile upon meeting her. Those YYZ meets were some of my favorite memories of my time on this site and Phyllis was a major part of those meets as she made feel at home in the city that is my home away from home

I also wish to pass along condolences to Mr. Spaceman for his loss. I also had the pleasure of meting him at the meets and he was/is one of the most genuinely nice people I have met via this site.

It was mentioned above that many of the old guard of this site are passing away. I have to agree as there several people are no longer with us.... I hate to be to sentimental but there is something reassuring to hope that there is some type of ethereal A.net alumni meet going on in a better place..

Another veteran A.netter gone. Even though i didn't personally know her, I feel a kinship.

Yeah, Superfly mentioned that as well. It'd be nice to hear from him. Hope he's OK.

We've had a wave of that. It worries me that I can get the senior discount @ Dennys.

I just learned of this some sad news. I'm sorry for bumping this thread but I'm little shocked and wanted to express a word about Vaporlock. She is funny. Not only that but she enjoyed sharing pictures of her on here. Canada lost a great woman! All replies above are wonderful to read..
