Description: from James' sister...

I was originally going to reply in the other topic concerning my brother's death, but was unable to, so I decided to get crafty and make my own topic here.
First, I wanted to thank you all for your kind thoughts and words. They have really meant a lot to my family. And the poetry, it is beautiful. I know my mother and aunt have seen this site, and I will be forwarding the link to my Dad tomorrow. There were also the emails that we recieved (somebody from Australia and a few others) and were very much appreciated.
I hadn't realized James was on this site, let alone an Admin. It's kind of neat to be able to read all his old posts and stuff. I have no idea what a Highborn Sycath is, but it sounds impressive and super cool.
I don't really have much else to say, so thank you again.
PS - for whatever reason, if anyone would like to contact me, they can do so via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org

PPS - And although I feel kind of gross doing this, I'd rather say it here than have people thinking otherwise: no, he did not commit suicide. He died from a rare virus. My apologies if this comes off as uncouth; I just really don't want people thinking that he took his own life. /rant

It's good to know we've helped give some comfort during our own remembrance.
James/ Highborn Sycath wasn't just an Admin, either (not that there's anything wrong with Admins)- I'm pretty sure he's one of the founders of this site.
Thanks for making sure none of us were misinformed about his death, although I doubt anyone would have thought he committed suicide- He always came across as happy and lively.
Our condolences again to you and your family.

I just need to know... is the rare virus the one that is resistant (completely) to antibiotics? I just learned about it in scinece class and I think it may be the cause.

It was the least we could do. If you and your family need anything from us, just ask we'd be happy to help.

Hehe, I guess you could say 'Highborn' is the Wood Elf equivalent of a real world army General. Pretty fitting since James was a founder and admin of this site. As for 'Sycath'...I actually never asked him what that meant :huh:. It could be the name of a character from a comic or something, or possibly just a name he invented.
As I send feel free to look around here or ask for anything, just post or send me an email (email@example.com), we'll be happy to help. I'm the guy from Australia who sent your mom the e-mail by the way.

@ The wanderer- All viruses are completely resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses.
I don't know what this virus was, and I assume the family will want to keep some privacy in the matter (I'm not trying to reprimand you, TW- I'm also curious. I'm just saying it's not our place to ask or guess).

Both Lynx and I came from Australia, and from the looks of it, we both sent you an e-mail.
Thank you for your reply, sharnyparny. I suppose The Lost Glade will indeed by a well of memories that you can retain--and an unexpected one at that.
