Changing of the Guard

Post by Caroline » Fri Jul 05, 2019 1:12 am

Those of you who knew Karla, admin at JA forum will be saddened to learn that she passed away this week. For someone so set against social media, I think even she would crack a wry smile at being the subject of several threads. Her passing was announced on facebook and twitter ands has saddened all those who knew her.

I first learned this sad news when Colpet posted it over at GB. Karla was a woman of many talents, but I will miss her devilish sense of humor most of all.

Thank you so much for letting us know, Caroline. I didn't know her, but she was a force to be reckoned with in the gaming world from what I did know of her. I was thinking you and Karla were good friends, LadyK?

Although I never met Karla in person, we were on staff together at JA and communicated regularly in the "back room" and via email. (I left the site about 6 months after the new owner took over.) Unfortunately, I lost many of my email addresses when trying to move them over to my newer computer, so I lost contact with Karla. It makes me angry with myself that I didn't try harder to find a way to get in touch again.
