It is with a heavy aching heart that I bring to all members of Disney Central and MouseBuzz, the news that one of our dearest members, Lisa Welch known to us all as Tinkerbell has passed away at home.
Her family has given me permission to post this here, but as yet they are still trying to contact close friends and would appreciate the news being kept private and to these boards for now.
Older members will remember Lisa had a passion for WDW and all things Disney like no other. She truly embodied the spirit of Disney, she was a good, kind, witty beautiful person, who had the rare quality of never judging anyone, she was always compassionate and had the biggest heart in anyone I’ve ever met.
I came to Disney Central because of Lisa. Our shared love of Disney meant that she introduced me to these boards.
I will try and get details of where people can express their sympathies from the family, but of course it is delicate at this time, and the family wish to notify their immediate family and friends privately first.
She was one of the best friends I ever had, and my heart is truly broken.
RIP dear dear Lisa- gone but never ever forgotten.
