Alan just called me to say that Elspeth passed over this morning at home and in her sleep. No funeral arrangements have been made yet, but I will pass on the info when I get it.

As Elspeth has been very ill and has not been on the board much these past few years (and maybe only once in the past year or so), many new members do not know her. Long time members will remember her, as she is very hard to forget. Not to mention the fact that this board exists because of her. When we set it up on Delphi, it cost money to have your own forum on the service. I started it as a Yule present for her. She was very active on TC in the early days -- before her various illnesses caught up with her -- and was one of the people most responsible for getting this board going and giving it the direction it has had all these years.

I'm not making much sense, I know.  Sorry, but she has been a good friend for many years and this is hitting me hard.

She'll be very sadly missed.  Take care, Randall.

So sorry to here of her passing; and I will light an candle for her journey.

I know she meant so much more to you than a forum leader, and am also sending some strength and warm to you for your loss. She had an interesting spirit, part warrior, part healer. My sincere condolences. You were fortunate to have known her so well.....

I was just thinking of her the other day. While I am sad to hear this, I am also not surprised under the circumstances. Thoughts are with Alan, you and Lyric, and all the other friends/family who will miss her.

Dude.  You don't need to apologize for having a normal human reaction--and I thought you made sense, anyway.

Take care, everyone. I wish I had gotten a chance to know her, but you're all in my prayers, as well as her and her surviving family.    Sad

{Randall}  I remember her fondly, even though it's been ages since I saw her here.  My thoughts go out to her family.
