One of the old board members passed away.

I honestly don't remember what her username was on here, but I do recall we met on LJ because she was a member of the board.

http://alexielnet.livejournal.com/

Her father has posted that she passed away on November 30th of adrenal cancer.

I'm still in shock. I remember her making the initial posts about her disease, and figuring out what it was, just six months ago. I'm gutted. Especially note the last entry she made, where she talks about being so scared and in pain. I talked to her online during all this, until she went off completely around then. I've been worried about her since.

She lived in Phoenix. We met up, once, when she was at ASU. She was lovely. I remember she had a handbag printed with some old Disney movies.

Her website is still up. It is so vital and hopeful and full of casual life.

This is to her memory. Rest in peace.

Oh my god...

Her name looked familiar. Just looked it up and came across the username "alexielnet".

It's gotta be harrowing for her to have to go through this. Rest in peace, alexielnet.

Re: One of the old board members passed away.

I remember some of her Utena characters sites, like Empty Cage.  She had a lot of talent and creativity and a willingness to share it.  I wish she had passed away of something less painful and terrifying, and while I'm not religious, I hope she is in some way still out there. 

Rest in peace, Alexiel, you will be missed.

Re: One of the old board members passed away.

I remember alexielnet, as do many of us.  What a shock; I had no idea she was sick.  I only knew her on this forum, but she was energetic and funny in her time here, and the world will be poorer without her.  What a tragedy.

I remember her too. She made gorgeous icons and wallpapers -I used to have them on my computer before it crashed.

Man.... fuck cancer, as they say. emot-frown


The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

Re: One of the old board members passed away.

It's such a rare and aggressive cancer. In one of her entries she notes that she doesn't understand how the survival rate can be so low if we have multiple adrenal glands, which leads me to believe she didn't completely get the severity of the metastasis. I'm still gutted. I drove seven hours today to be home for Christmas, and I couldn't stop thinking about her.

She had a lovely website. It's her pride. I want to spread it about. The only legacy we can guarantee anybody is what they leave behind.

I don't think I had the pleasure of meeting her but she is one of our own and my heart is heavier at her loss. May she rest ever peacefully.

I was shocked when I read this. I didn't know her, but I was shocked nevertheless. May she rest in peace.

Re: One of the old board members passed away.

Guys, I'm gonna archive her sites in case someone takes them down. She did some beautiful work and I know she wouldn't want it to disappear from the net. So, should they go down, someone let me know, okay?
