Subject: We lost one of our own

Written By: DoRitos on 11/22/08 at 6:43 pm


Royce Miller  - June 9, 1957 - November 18, 2008.  Royce went through some really rough times in the last 22 1/2 months.  I am going to miss her greatly.  She was very nearly killed in early January 2007 from a gun shot wound to her back.  She had nerve damage and was working on getting as much use of her lower extremities as possible that she lost as a direct result of the wound to her lower back.  She fought hard but the war was lost to her last Tuesday, on Nov. 18. 2008.  Her funeral was today, 22 Nov 2008 at 11:00AM PST in the central part of Washington State where she was living with her older sister Lynette.  I wrote a memorial parody to her on Amiright.  Here is the link:

Condolences can be sent to her sister at the following address:

Lynette Bebereia
4325 William Ave.
Moses Lake, WA. 98837

Oh wow, I have read some of her stuff from my research of the history on AmIRight. . .what a sad loss. . .she's a historically prolific writer, I'll come up with something in the way of condolences.

Guy, thank you for the sensitive way you helped make us all aware of this sad event.  By my calendar, her entrance into the life eternal came much too soon; but, by God's calendar, the timing was right.  Also, Guy, thank you for being a friend to Royce and to me.

That is very sad news.  I loved reading Royce's parodies.  To hear of her injuries and her long battle and her passing makes me very upset.

Thank you Guy, for the lovely tribute you wrote.  It would have meant the world to Royce.

I had the privilege of corresponding with Royce from time to time during the time when she asked me to co-author a parody with her, and knew her to be be a very thoughtful and intelligent person.

I will miss her.  :\'(

I remember this person...but I wasn't sure if I commented on any of her parodies or not. I might've read a few early ones though.

This comes as somewhat of a shock to me; I think I had heard a while back that she was going thru some tough times. But it's sad when you lose a member of your online community. :\'(

I will check out that parody link that you posted...even though I probably DKTOS.

That is very very sad news, and comes as a shock, Guy.  I'm glad she had your friendship to brighten her last years.  Royce was a very talented writer and some of her syllable-matching was sublime - her writing was also distinguishable by its elegant intelligence and cleverness.

She would love to be remembered through her parodies and we should all read a few of them today as a tribute to her memory and to her contribution to this site and thus to our lives. RIP Royce

I turned the front page of amIright black today in tribute. 

She had a great sense of humor and we already missed her when she had to stop contributing due to her problems.  I had hoped she'd get better and be able to join in like she used to, but I guess that can't happen now.  Really sad, I just don't know what to write.

An appropriate tribute.  Thank you, Chucky.

It makes your own heart jump when you read news of someone your own age dies like this.

Sorry to hear you are in mourning for someone close to you.

I once asked Royce, in an e-mail, which of her many parodies were her favorites.  She named 5 or 6, including "Puff, My Ass is Draggin,'" and indicated that she really enjoyed working with you.  Thank you for what you brought to Royce's life and for what you bring to AmIRight.

I also had the privilege of corresponding with Royce directly years ago.  I had no idea she was going through this...very sad news to hear.

Thanks for the tribute on AmIRight today Chucky, especially when your family is going through so much now as well. My condolences to you and Susan.

Thanks again, Guy, for the tribute. Like Jeff wrote, I never knew why Royce had taken absence from the site last year - I had no idea.

What everyone else has said.

Royce and I didn't always see eye to eye - I think we probably clashed on most things religious or political - but that never got in the way of a mutual respect.  A sad loss.

This is very sad news - Royce was a terribly talented member of the AmiRight league and a sweetie to boot.

Sad news. Thanks for letting us know, Guy.

The years in which Royce was most prolific are my favorite years of Amiright. I liked her way of writing from the points of view of inanimate objects - if I haven't already stolen that concept from her, I'm sure I will eventually. Also, she gave me many kind comments on my parodies even though she strongly disagreed with my politics, and that's not something most people are able to do.

RIP, Royce.

Ditto that.

I didn't have the history of correspondence with Royce that some others on the site did, but I remember one time several years ago when I was upset about something parody-related and she sent me a really nice PM with the basic idea (as far as I remember) that I shouldn't let the opinions of others get me down because as long as I'm happy with what I've written then it's 100% worth writing. I think that helped me get over my frustration and get back to writing the ridiculous quantities of parodies that I wrote back then.

OMG, I can see I have been away for a very long time.
