The Milk Carton: Missing Berries

I frequently find myself wondering about past Berries.

Since so many of us have changed our usernames/profiles at one point or another (myself included), I often wonder how many of the past members I am wondering about actually ARE here but I just don’t know it.

I hope we can use this topic as a sort of “find missing Berries” thread and that anyone with “sightings” or more recent intel or an updated username can put that info here. This isn’t to out anyone who wants to keep their old info private (if you feel anything is sensitive, maybe PM the poster).

That’s not exhaustive for me, but just those I could remember off the top of my head.

Unfortunately, I do remember this blog post about [name_m]Rollo[/name_m]:

Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention! This was exactly the reason I was thinking about this today, actually. Today I attended a zoom memorial/celebration of life for my aunt who died recently, unexpectedly. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I put a “social media will” section in our will the last time, but I didn’t say “hey, hubby, if I die can you let the Berries know?” It was just about closing down accounts and things. Now I have done that and asked him to please do that but I also have to put it in writing in case we BOTH die…

That is so sad but at least I know now and can still remember her contributions fondly. Thanks for posting!

@lu_brasil still here; new username. Mostly, I just read the threads and don’t post anything nowdays. Because 1) life, 2) this new format seems to hate me.

About time I changed the username to something more interesting. :yum: Also it kind of reflects my current open-minded approach to naming. (And my [name_f]English[/name_f] skills only downgraded since I left the US :sweat_smile:)

I’ve been away from the forums. After a very serious miscarriage, my husband didn’t want us try for more kids. It just became too painful to dream of future names. Does that make sense? Thanks for thinking of me!

I’m so sorry you had to go through that, I can’t imagine. I completely understand why it’s too hard to be on here now, but we do miss you! :heartpulse:

@pindorama, good to hear from you. I always appreciated your posts, so feel free to pop back in anytime.

@boyandgirl, that sounds so hard. It does make a lot of sense. Wishing you the best. You’d be welcomed back at any time with open arms if you ever feel up to it.

Heya I’m kizzy_delgado I changed my user! I haven’t been on in quite a while actually, I have been quite busy with highschool. I still think about names a lot I’m just not actively collecting :slight_smile:

Good to see you! I have indeed seen a few of your posts since you changed usernames and not known who was talking. [name_f]Glad[/name_f] to know you’re here, however infrequently. :grinning:

Awww… thanks for the mention! I’ve missed you guys, too. I’ve been going through a bit of a down time, and we moved to Iran! Unfortunately, this page is censored in Iran. No idea why. But I’ll try to stop in when the kids and the VPN permit. How are you guys?

@tfzolghadr!! So good to see you :wave: How are the little ones? Not so little now I guess.

Iran, wow — a big change! You’re such an international family, it’s awesome. Your kids will have experienced so many languages and cultures. I hope everyone has settled in OK.

So good to see you again. I hope you’re able to come back soon as internet allows! All good here honestly. I’m sorry to hear about the rough time of late. I hope things turn up soon.

@namergirl3, where’d you go?
