A sad note

Yesterday, a friend of the family, Cindy Bonner (also known to her friends in the SCA as Rhiannon Lowery), passed away.

[livejournal.com profile] patsmor has a good posting on this here. [livejournal.com profile] cnewsonsmith has her posting here.

Valkyrie and Rhiannon (as Cindy was known in the SCA) were both apprenticed to Mistress Seelie. We took the kids to visit Mistress Seelie over Christmas - I know, I haven't posted anything about that or the cutenesses commited then, but it was a fun time. We last saw Rhiannon and her family (husband Wilowyn and adopted daughter Meren) at the West Kingdom's Twelfth Night. At that point, it was clear that Rhiannon was having medical problems (she was in a wheelchair), but it seemed that she was recovering. That she was snached away from us so suddenly was a shock to her family and all of us.

Now, my heart goes out to Wilowyn and Meren. These are wonderful people, and good friends. They now have a hole in their family that nothing can fill.

Also, I am sorry for Mistress Seelie. She does not choose apprentices lightly, and Valkyrie feels a special bond between herself and those others that Seelie has chosen. Now, Seelie has lost two of her apprentices in short order, first [livejournal.com profile] lmeyer and now Rhiannon.

The kids know nothing about this. Kjersti is playing away with cheerful abandon. Corwin spent some time dancing and playing guitar in his room. This is how it should be.
