Sad indeed. She was a very prevalent poster when I first joined. Enjoyed her posts and "takes" on topics. RIP.

There's something depressing about losing an old timer from a forum like this that contributed a lot. She always had an interesting angle that I liked. I am sorry.

I loved her for hating w*rk and swearing she would sooner pull all her fingernails out than go back. I actually think of her often and her relevant-to-so-many-situations: [I’ll move] “when the cat dies”.

She was totally relevant to this forum and will be missed, even by those of us who don’t keep up with current posts. Apparently the cat did die, she moved and raised a new house. I did catch a few of her truck posts—she seemed very happy with her new directions.

I’m so sorry to read of this. She was a big influence on my decision-making processes right before retirement.

She will be missed.

RIP Khan.

At least her signature line was proved wrong in this post....

I knew her under a prior screen name in another retirement forum, in the early 2000s. She was a character there too. I will never forget the story of her retirement luncheon. I went to look for it, but that forum doesn't have a search feature IIRC, she felt compelled to retire early - not only because she came to despise her job/workplace - but also because all her family members had died young and so she believed it to be her fate - so retiring became necessary in her eyes. So glad her life had interesting twists.

Sorry to hear it. There are some forum authors that one tends to read no matter the topic. Khan was one of those. RIP.
