In Honor of Ceaver and Drakmoor

Eldor / Sep 25, 2017
The first day I took over this guild, I thought of the few of us that were together as just that, a group of friends that would get online from time to time to play some games and have fun, and then just go on and live our lives away from this virtual place. As time went on, I watched everyone grow closer and noticed that we all spent a lot of time together and enjoyed each other's company. In the last year or so, I've seen something I never expected, we all started to really care for each other and treat our fellow guildies like they are as important as ourselves. We have involved our families and friends from our "real" world, and enriched this little community even further. Today, I see our guild as more of a family than simply just a guild. We are all so close-knit and involved in each others' lives that to call us anything less than family doesn't feel right. But that makes our recent losses that much more painful. While we were aware Ceaver's health was declining, I think it's fair to say that none of us were expecting to lose her so suddenly, or so soon. Her presence with us was always one of mischief and playfulness, and the situation with her health gave her a deep appreciation of life that she always tried to impart on all of us. And as if one wasn't hard enough, we now have another painful loss with Drak's passing. Drak has been a member of our family for such a long time, and was always willing to help out and make jokes, and just be a smiling face among friends.

Our family is forever changed for the better for having had the privilege of these two wonderful people among us. I do not believe any of us can ever truly be ready to lose the people we love, and I don't think any of us were expecting things to happen as they have. But while I know we are all hurting, I hope we are all able to carry on their lights in our hearts and lean on each other for comfort. Please give your love and support to Kane and Loeci, and to each other during these hard times, and keep the memory of our friends alive in the heart of our guild.

Well said.

They're always going to be with us. Perhaps not in body, but definitely in spirit.

You're right, Eldor. This guild is more than just that. I met some of my closest friends in this guild after wandering for a long time with almost no friends to speak of. I found you guys and suddenly was welcomed in as a member of the family. I felt like I'd been there all along. Even without a mic, you guys made me feel welcome.

And that's why I feel like they're not truly gone. Once you join this family, a part of you stays here no matter what. This family becomes a part of you, and you become a part of it. And I'm glad we had Ceaver and Drak with us for the time that we did. They've become a part of this guild's soul--its spunky, party and mischief-loving spirit. And for every naked op run, for every disco dance party, for every snowball or tinsel bomb thrown, they're going to be with us.

In the wise words of Yoda, "Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not."

Simply beautiful Eldor, and Rek. it's not always easy for me to put thoughts and feeling to words, but I felt when I joined this guild that it was a special group of people. You all made me feel so welcome. You all are wonderful. *hugs guildies*

Fi deserves more credit for this than I do, I was having trouble finding words, Fi did most of the work, but it was definitely right.
