HOLY CATS.

My old friends, my new friends, people I don't know.

I just got off the phone with Gem's player. They're sending her home (or really, she'll be moving in with an old friend of her). Because she's too healthy to be in full care now.

The cancer is still there, but it's stopped. The prognosis is still terminal. But. They had done some experimental treatments that seem to have at least given her more time. And better health.

And because it's Gem, she's actually a little embarrassed. Like I told her, don't even be, this is the most wonderful thing I've heard in a while.

SO. WOW.

I don't even know what else to say other than she giggled about Pharlen being governor.

<3 Wow.

Wonderful news. And screw embarrassment - tell her to be proud of how tough she is, instead! She's proving that even the worst things can be chewed up and spit out, and that the doctors aren't always right - tenacity and perseverance can still overcome the odds, no matter how stacked they are. Thee's nothing to be embarrassed about, when she's giving other people a little more hope.

I did get a call last month, Gem's moved in with her friends, and she's in the process of changing over phones. So, I suspect she forgot about the voice mail call thing when I called today. I'll keep working on it! Very Happy

I just called Gem's player, and let her know the sad news about Jack Scott. She scolded, 'I was supposed to go first'. But I said the player will be there to meet her.

She thanked everyone who's thinking of her, and laughed at me because I'm so bad with names. But I was smart enough to look at logs!

My older son and I got to meet Gem's player. She's looking much better than she had, I think. She's in a very nice care facility and is surrounded by friends and family. We are in her thoughts! But currently, her computer is down while they work out where to put it.

RIP Gem, you were and are missed. You have been a firework lighting up the darkness. While you're on the other side, I hope you meet up with Jack's player and have a grand old time together.

RIP Gem. Wish we could have gotten to know each other better over the years. You will be missed. I always enjoyed your stories.

Thank you, Gem. For all the laughs, all the stories, for fifteen years of friendship. I hope your faith is rewarded in the big what-comes-after.

You won't be forgotten.

This day was coming, I knew, but I still wasn't ready. But here we are.

Gemethyst was Shannon's light and love, playing and writing for her helped her work though some of the hardest things life had thrown at her. Gemethyst's adventures helped bring joy and perspective to Shannon's life. She told me that playing and writing for Gem was her "treat" after having her chores and work done.

Everyone she played with, she cared about so very much. She appreciated them. (Especially the villains!) It meant the world to her when people enjoyed her and Gem and their stories.

We talked a lot about what would become of Gemethyst and her kids, and Shannon was determined that Gem would live Happily Ever After with her children and loves. We just never figured out how that would happen.

Shannon didn't want me or anyone working that up or writing it if she couldn't, and decided that if she couldn't write it, then it would just be she was Living Happily Ever After with the kids and her loves.

But, if someone wants to include Gem in their writing, she was fine with that. Talking about or bringing her to an event, that sort of thing.

I said would she have her wings back, and she said of course. This is Gem's happily ever after, and for Gem to be happily ever after, she'd still be getting into mischief and playing tag with Jack and Benjamin and Lirenel, and she'd still be getting into trouble with Pharlen and Shan and Mesteno and Crispin and well, everyone she loved.

I told her I knew Jack's player would be waiting for her, and I told her that she'd worn out so many guardian angels that she was going to be one. And she laughed.

My dear friend has gone on before us. We will remember. This folder will remain as long as it is needed, and then join the catacombs. But we will remember.

All of my love.

Gem, we had some fantastic play together. You were always awesome, eager to story tell and so easy going. It was an absolutely pleasure to have known you. As a fellow veteran I will wish you "fair winds and following seas". May the wind be forever at your back.
