The first time I remember hearing her name was in late 2004 or early 2005.  Sir William Gallowglass, a dear friend of mine, told me he was attending Estrella War in 2005 because there was a young lady who was going to be knighted.  She had asked him to be present to put one of the spurs on her heels as part of the ceremony where she became a knight, I believe the first lady to be knighted in Caid (correct me if I am wong)

Later, I was working on land allocation for Estrella and our paths crossed again.  She got to be one of those people that I always looked forward to seeing, even though we did not know each other well.    She was shining to me - every time I saw her, she had a glow about her, a true joie de vive.  Most recently, our paths crossed while she was Queen and I was Royalty Liaison at this last Estrella.  She was so great to be around and I kept thinking that I should make the time and effort to get to know her better because the more and more I got to know her, the more I liked her.  I was thrilled when I heard that she was being elevated to the Order of the Pelican just a month ago, right before she was hospitalized.

Sadly, I will not get a chance to know her better.  At least not in this life on this earth.  She passed away this afternoon after battling H1N1 flu. 

I really do believe that everything happens for a reason.  But I cannot fathom what the reason could possibly be that would take such an amazing and vibrant woman away from us.  I juast can't wrap my brain around it at all.

My heart and thoughts go out to Sven, her family and her closest friends.  If I am feeling this sad, their feelings must be indescribable.
