Sometimes time passes faster than the mind realizes. It has been a year since Shipmaven passed away. She was one of Cruise Addicts most respected and contributing members, in more ways than one. Some ways many people will never know. She gave freely of her knowledge and experiences as a Travel Agent, but very rarely ever mentioned being one. You could always count on her for a professional and accurate answer. Many of us here could count on her for advice and even services, but more important, many of us could count on her as a friend, and she was the ultimate friend of the Cruise Addicts community.
