RIP RavenBlue

I don't even know how to post this, so I'll get straight to the point: RavenBlue, aka Ravva to some of us and Neely to others, passed away unexpectedly at her home on 4 September 2013.

I will always remember her love of nature, her enthusiasm for music, and her truly good personality.

I'm not sure what to say. I just found out and I'm still stunned; I thought those of you who also knew her should be aware of the news. Her obituary is here: Neely Gillcrist Obituary - Fundy Funeral Home

Ax

Raven made herself scarce over the past few years but we ran in the same click and I miss her very much. What a shame. RIP

I am so sorry to read this. Much too young to be gone. May you find peace, RavenBlue.

I don't know what to say. She was wonderful, always a very kind and fun soul, a truly good person. Some good memories of posting with her back in the day. RIP.

Thanks for letting us know, Ax.

I'm still reeling over this, honestly. I went to check, because I thought she'd just been on the forum very recently. Apparently it was back in March, but it doesn't feel like it was that long ago, chatting away in the video game thread. I really can't believe someone I used to spend so much online time with is gone, this is weird to deal with, because on one hand, she's not someone I knew in person, but on the other hand, she's still someone I interacted with on a very regular basis for a very long time.

I'm just so sad and sorry she's gone.
