    Thought a long time about if I should even post here.
    But I did it anyway.

    Never had any interaction with Quero as a (former)Mod or as a member, but it sure feels Like I lost
    a family member :(

    RIP QUERO

    mdb and MD2013, thanks but I should've mentioned that the bio and pic came off her "Who are we" webpage (Gekko Scuba Divers | Company Profile) with me cutting and pasting in her avatar in the lower right-hand corner only. URLs change over time so at least there'll be this to remember her by. Her avatar always cheered me up not matter what my situation was.

    RIP Quero.

    rjk75 I know the photo was from Marcia website. I had visited the website a few times as I was going to do a few diving courses with Marcia in November. It was a nice post and certainly shows she really lived life to the full. Marcia will be sadly missed.

    I feel very sad just learning about the passing of Marcia (Quero). As most I never met her but in this global village where everybody is connected I still feel that I've known her through her online personality. Her posts and moderation on SB has always been patient, thoughtful and with alot of empathy towards new and not so new divers.

    I wish her family and close friends alot of strenght during these very painfull days.

    I have ran across several of Marcia's posts recently and was reminded how genuine she was.

    Even if she contacted you in her role as a mod it was done pretty gently, and with grace.

    RIP Marcia. I wish I'd been able to dive with her. I'm so sorry to her family members. I've heard her kids are a great bunch.
