My heart breaks for you and those who were closest to her.

Hearts and prayers out to Valharic and all those who knew such a shining soul.

All our sympathy, from the Midrealm, where we still think of Valharic as "Our Boy" and were so delighted for him when he met such a wonderful woman.

Thank you.

She was a wonderful woman - the kind that makes everyone better for knowing her.

*hugs, tissues and a cup of tea* I am so sorry for your loss.

Thomas Jefferson to John Adams on the loss of Abigail
This past year has brought the death of too many dear friends. At some point I found this letter written by T. Jefferson to his long time friend and sometime rival J. Adams on the death of John's wife, Abigail. The message is far clearer and more meaningful than anything I could manage myself. I hope you don't mind if I share it with you today:

MONTICELLO, November 13, 1818.

The public papers, my dear friend, announce the fatal event of which your letter of October the 20th had given me ominous foreboding. Tried myself in the school of affliction, by the loss of every form of connection which can rive the human heart, I know well, and feel what you have lost, what you have suffered, are suffering, and have yet to endure. The same trials have taught me that for ills so immeasurable, time and silence are the only medi­cine. I will not, therefore, by useless condolences, open afresh the sluices of your grief, nor, although mingling sincerely my tears with yours, will I say a word more where words are vain, but that it is of some comfort to us both, that the term is not very distant, at which we are to deposit in the same cerement, our sorrows and suffering bodies, and to ascend in essence to an ecstatic meeting with the friends we have loved and lost, and whom we shall still love and never lose again. God bless you and support you under your heavy affliction.

I was blessed to know her while I lived in Atlantia. We are all poorer. Peace to you, and grace.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. ((gentle hug))
Jul. 17th, 2009 03:29 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry, hon. I only just heard.
Jul. 17th, 2009 03:45 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry! Who?

Duchess Arielle the Golden. She lost her fight.

Oh dear, a great loss indeed.
Jul. 17th, 2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
I'm very sorry for your loss.
Jul. 17th, 2009 04:12 pm (UTC)
Oh gosh, I'm so sorry.
Jul. 17th, 2009 05:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you. You'd have liked her. She was one of those truly wonderful people that makes the world a better place.
Jul. 17th, 2009 05:07 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad you knew her and that she touched so many lives. *hugs*
Jul. 17th, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
((hugs)) I'm sorry for your loss.
Jul. 17th, 2009 05:19 pm (UTC)
oh god... :( She was such a kind and beautiful soul...I can't believe she has left us.

Memory everlasting, and may that memory bring you comfort.
Jul. 17th, 2009 11:17 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry...never had the pleasure of meeting her, but everything I have heard is it is my loss not to have had opportunity. The world is lessened by the loss of such a light.

This has been a bad couple of weeks for this sort of thing. My thoughts are with you.

I am all too aware of what you're going through. In the East we just lost Zach Wolfhunter. He was the type of guy who would stop to help a stranger change a flat...in the rain. We've all been devastated and I know it must be the same for you with Duchess Arielle.

We are losing too many good people much too soon.
