    RIP Tinks - you were a true MSE legend. It didn't matter how many times you were slagged off on here, you just shrugged it off and carried on.

    Deepest sympathy to Tinks partner and family. x

    I was looking for her page on FB, lot of people with the same name so I thought I never do it until I saw this.


    Edit I will try and shrink the picture.

    It is sad news though, I thought she was a real nice person.

    [edit] You can also use "good bye" and "good-bye" so the title is fine.

    English[edit]
    Alternative forms[edit]
    good-by, goodby (dated)
    good-bye
    good bye
    g'bye (colloquial)
    bye, 'bye (informal)
    Etymology[edit]
    From earlier Godby, Godby'e, Godbwye, God b'w'y, God bwy yee, God buy you, God be wi' you, each a progressively shorter contraction of God be with you. Note the change of God to good by confusion with good morning, good day, etc.
    Actually the origin is interesting, it seems to a shortened form of "God be with you".

    So very appropriate now.

    I could get on with her OK at times; she was very stubborn, though.

    R.I.P. Tinks. Hard to believe this news. I remember her many threads, and could never decide if she was for real or just on a major wind-up! Whatever you thought of her, 36 is way too young to go.
