Sylvamoon Ember passed away yesterday just after noon her time (Mountain TZ), after having suffered a stroke last Saturday. She was with us, her friends, when she blacked out, like it had already happened too often during the last weeks. She was with us, then the avie went silent, then away, then it was logged off. Aianna was in the list of people Sylva's brother had to contact, should anything happen to her, and she first received news about her critical conditions and then that she had left us.
Life was not good to Sylva. She was the RL mom of JewelFire Ember, who died last February the day of her twentieth birthday. Despite her merry attitude and her warmness the loss of Jewell was probably too much for Sylva. She loved her daughter much , even giving her the love others had denied her, and now she missed her as much.
SL was not good to Sylva either. Many rumors about Jewel spoiled Sylva's experience and sometimes people were plain mean to her, even if she came to the virtual world to find some of the love the loss of Jewell had denied her. During those first days, overwhelmed by the loss of Jewell, and not yet ready to accept someone who was reminding me so closely of her, I too was probably too not warm enough with her and I'll always regret that.
Despite all that she was always a merry presence around her friends.
No mother should see her daughter leave before her. I believe Sylva could not live with that. Now it is fixed and I believe they are together and happy, in the Summer Lands, as Jewel used to say. And in peace.
