It is with a heavy heart that I bring the news, our dear friend and guildmate Azoline has departed our midst due to a series of simultaneous leukemia diagnoses.
Ady and I have followed her journey through the treatment with Firemane by her side for some time over Facebook and other means. While I'm not privy to the details I can tell you from our own experience that losing a loved one in this way is very difficult and often unexpected. I reached out to Firemane for permission to let you all know what happened and share with you his message below:
Heaven has a new angel today. For those of you who haven’t heard, Chelsea’s battle with leukemia ended last night. She was the strongest person I’ve ever known and even though she is gone, the cancer never defeated her. She was full of love and life until the end. I am lucky and happy to have found her, and will be eternally grateful for all the joy she brought me and everyone who knew her.
We thank everyone for the love and support. Arrangements are still being made but in the meantime, in lieu of flowers and gifts please make a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at www.lls.org.
Because many of us have known and loved playing with Azoline and Firemane over the years, I think it is appropriate for us to mourn and remember her life here. None of us would presume to miss her so much as her family does now, but it is healthy for us to remember her life for our own sake and that of Firemane and his family should they read these memoirs. Please share!
