Dec 15, 2012 11:32 AM  Disneyland Talk Land
The last three days have been tough, with the passing of our beloved Dahulagirl, and the tragedy in Connecticut yesterday. We are blessed with a special community that can come together in celebration; we can mourn together, and we can keep the memories alive of people who've passed. When you remember how special Janine was (and still is) to the MouseWait family, think about the newest person who posts in the Lounge, and the potential friendship that exists there. I remember talking to Janine, E818, and Shangz at the very small MouseWait Birthday at the Hearthstone Lounge. They told me that they loved to plan events and would like to help plan the next one. Not too many months later, we were filling up ballrooms at the Grand Californian and the Disneyland Hotel. Janine fiercely protected MouseWait, she gave countless things away in an effort to make the community a special place, and she started the trend of giving things away in the Park (something even Disney has recently adopted). Janine and E818 spent countless hours sharing the magic of Disney Studios and other places with people who would otherwise never get a chance to go. So many people have asked me to create a separate RAK land, and I won't do it - because NO OTHER community is as generous as MouseWait and I want the newest person to experience this the first time they open the Lounge. I pray for E818 and Shangz during this challenging time in their lives. I know from experience the pain does not go away, but the friends around you make it better. I ask all MouseWaiters to continue the tradition of meeting new friends. You might feel as if you've met your "friend quota" on MouseWait and that you don't need to welcome anyone else into your group, but please just remember what it was like when someone welcomed you to MouseWait and how that felt. Don't abandon the thing that made MouseWait great or you could miss the blessing of meeting someone like Dahulagirl. It's sad for me to see people move away from the thing that brought them so much joy in the beginning. Just think about how many people stuck around to find true friends in MouseWait simply because Janine gave them a warm welcome in the Lounge and a big hug in person at a meetup. Janine will always be remembered, we have her posts and memories stored here in the Lounge, and her spirit of generosity will always live on through MouseWait.

I've stayed away from comments both about Dahula and Sandy Hook Elementary.. as even just typing this triggers tears. I am deeply sad and so so sorry to hear about a close passing from our community. I'm sad that I didn't get to know her and it hurts me to know so many 'virtually' surrounding me are feeling such a loss. True shinning spirits are so rare and I so wish this loss weren't so. Janine, you've left little bits of your spirit among some epic people. I'm really looking forward to getting to know you through them. Rest in love. - MrsMears  217.3 #1867 2:20PM

I know Janine's brother personally, and I am sorry for his loss. He always had nothing, but good things to say about Janine. She was apparently vibrant till the end. May she rest in peace. - rvaswan1103  57.3 #4731 2:49PM
OMG!! I didn't know her, I never even had the opportunity to be in contact with her. But I just watched her video and she looks like an amazing person.

Thank u Admin. I am a MW newbie and soo happy I found all of you! I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Dahulagirl, but after everyone's posts I went back and read her posts and watched her video. What struck me is her magnificent smile. It radiates through pictures and made me smile and cry at the same time.

Amen, and thank you, Admin. Thank you for creating and maintaining this wonderful forum known as Mouse Wait. It is your class and grace that makes it so special. It is also people like Janine who keep it that way. I never had the pleasure of meeting her, but I do feel I have gotten to know her just a little bit through the stories and the video I have watched in the past few days. She was truly a special spirit, and will be sorely missed by her loved ones. May she rest in peace. - MeridaFan  4244.3 #40 7:39PM

great words and wisdom admin.I am so grateful to have found this community and because of great people like Dahula have been honored to share the RAKs and friendship here.You can never have enough friends and at one point almost left mw if not for the kind words from mwrs.I'm always exited to meet new people and look foward to many more years of raks,friendships and meetups - pikarich  6657.9 #19 11:37PM
This is so beautifully said; thank you. I think we all need these reminders, especially at this difficult time. Thank you all for offering kindness and friendship; it is comforting to know this is such an inclusive and welcoming environment. It is the reason why MW and Disneyland are magical; they both foster feelings of joy and happiness. Maybe it is true that Disneyland is the happiest place on earth, and MouseWait is the happiest social network on earth! (I think I'm gonna post that cuz its true.) - TinkerSchelle  2101.4 #84 12:00AM

So sorry for such a loss. I am glad that I met her and her family when she first joined MW. - Song  2242.4 #78 3:23PM
I am so saddened to hear this. Janine was a class act and always wore the most infectious smile on her face. My heart goes out to her family. She will be greatly missed by all who had the honor to know her. - PrinceCorey  4602.3 #34 6:45AM
I have been on MW for years now and still only have 20 something points yet I feel like a veteran because while I may not post I am always on here reading and laughing. Dahulagirl is one of the first MWers who made me fall in love with this app. Her generosity in park RAKs opened my eyes to the Magic of Disney being shared by others. This app has made me feel like I am not so crazy for wanting to be at the parks every single day and never getting tired of it. My heart goes out to all who are suffering but in honor of Janine I vow to RAKing throughout the new year and coming out of my shell to meet many MWers this year. Thank you admin for this wonderful app!!! - QueenBella  175.0 #2411 7:43AM
Very well said Admin. I to am very saddened by this news. The world has lost a very beautiful wonderful person. - Tealtownfan  1152.2 #174 2:18PM
Our Condolences from our family to you with our deepest sympathy - Apprentice  275.9 #1191 6:01PM
My Thoughts and Prayers are with her friends and family. I did not know her personally but seems like she touched a lot of people. I am new to this and still not great with the app but i just logged in to try and learn the computer and surf around. But if her family can see this, i know the loss of a loved one and I know her spirit is still with you =) - kjohoy  42.1 #5392 10:54PM
I am pretty new to MouseWait as well. Though I am not familiar with her, I can't help but notice how many members were involved in her life. My condolences go out. - ManeStreetMufasa  11.1 #11002 9:37AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  8880.6 #11 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10439.4 #9 9:55PM
