    The 'covergirl':batting: of the last-ever print edition of DIMZ passed away:( this afternoon. www.catay.com was a very important early photoessay website that had fresh content weekly for a number of years beginning a decade-and-a-half ago. Really one of the online pioneers:bow: giving us all content from a witty and brilliant graphic designer! The site featured an SSBBW's unfiltered POV which jumped thru that 'funny' hoop we all had to jump thru back then... enabling her subsequent emulators:blush: to skip the jump and aim for the Mainstream.:kiss2: http://www.catay.com

    Oh how terribly sad. I remember her, and her picture. Wasn't a page or section of her site in the past, devoted to stories people shared about being bullied? God bless her.

    I heard from a mutual friend today that Debora Thomas passed away. Many of the veterans of Dimensions going back to the 90's will remember Debora & her infectious smile. I'm sure many others have fond memories of Debora, who was quite active in the community years ago.

    May she rest in peace.

    Don'tHaveFacebook,
    ConnieLynn posted this information on Facebook:

    I'm sorry to say that I've just seen that Tina Thompson has passed today. I chatted with her on and off over the years as Diva on another site before we both ended up on Dims, where she used the nick SurlySomething.

    Also, I see on her FB page that they are looking for her friend "Nat". Anyone know any dimmers by that name?

    Thank you Fuzzy for posting this.

    Surlysomething was a much respected dry, witty and continuous voice on the BHM/FFA board for many years - and we have sincerely missed her of late.

    I hope it is okay if a create a separate thread there with your post, since many BHM/FFA regulars do not frequent the other boards.

    RIP Surly.

    On hearing the news and was glad to say, I didn’t see any wall painting until I read the text at the botton.

    Catay passing away. This news blew me away! Life is indeed, too short.
    While I did not know her personally, from what I did know of her was she was very special...very talented in her works & storylines & especially her graphic works. After reading her obit, she obviously was multi-talented & a beautiful woman, both internally & externally...I always marveled at her graphic works...one of the best! She will be sorely missed, and only 49...taken too soon! R.I.P. Catherine

    I always admired Cat's work. She was a skilled artist that enriched our community with her Fat Chick vignettes. It was jarring to see she had passed from this mortal plane so relatively young.

    I hope those that knew and loved Cat can find peace with her passing.

    That is so sad! While I never met Cat myself, I always loved her postings on catay.com because she had such a hilarious sense of humor and was always so positive. RIP, Cat.

    Very saddened to learn of Dr. Moe Lerner’s passing this month. He was a pioneer in ending Size Discrimination & pioneering Fat Advocacy. As well, featured in the movie Fat Chance.

    It's so sad to hear about Dr Moe. I met him at one of the NAAFA events in the 90's. He was one of our great healthcare advocates in Canada.

    I didn't know if this lady was a member of this forums but she should be.

    She was an extraordinarie woman. A very self confident SSBBW, a passionte advocate for the causes she belived in, and a very awesome writer. She was also a very good singer as you will going to see.

    We shared some moments of friendship from time to time. Just when we both needed a shouder to cry in, we just met each other.

    She doesn't know that she was my inspirstion to make research on lymphedema. A heavy cross she got to carry most of her life.

    She also doesn't know how much I loved her in full not only for the size of her body but also for the size of her heart and a soul.

    Almost two years has been since her passing away. She doesn't going to knew how much big was the void she left me inside my heart.

    Rest in peace, my dear Kimmie!!!
