Loss of a Veteran Player

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Cuprium, Oct 8, 2011.

    For those of you who know her, the player known on the Stratics boards as Calliope, a Guardsmen of Yew player (on Europa), Gilfane (Siege Perilous), Paladin Brigade of Justice player (Lake Superior) and veteran UO player through all the single games and UO continuously since its release, has unfortunately passed away. She played under multiple accounts but with most notable characters being Passerby, Mylanthe of Yew, Amethyst, Cameron, Bede, Alexander Fraser, Diamond Steel, Verity Sands, Yandros, Fianna, Cutting Edge, Angharad and Nighthawk.

    All the guilds she has belonged to will miss her, as will her family (Unity guild, Crusaders of Truth guild, Unity Exiles amongst others). Her enjoyment and enthusiasm trapped us all into having our own UO accounts and playing family events over quite a few years. UO will never be the same.

    She will indeed be missed. :(

    I´ve made a post on the Gilfane boards, Cuprium, to let our alliance know.

    Hail,

    Just as our life serves to prepare us for Eternity, Death is but a fork in the road in that Journey.

    Rejoice in that Life, remembers its many ways that it touched and blessed so many, and prepare here for a Reunion in Eternity.

    I pray your grief is brief, and that you may very soon Celebrate that Life you now mourn and miss.

    Sail on Sosarian!

    Our UO families matter just as much to us as we play over the years, well into the night, laugh at our conquests and talk more closely across the planet because we can.

    *love and hugs*

    My condolences to the family and friends. It is at times like these you have to remember the good times and hold onto the memories tightly.
     
  18. This is truly heartbreaking news.
    She was not only wonderful in game but lovely out of it. She will be very missed and our thoughts go out to her family during this terrible time.

    My sincere condolences too. The fond memories continue to live with us though and it is that which, in time, fills the hole left behind in our lives, and that which keeps them alive forever in our hearts and minds.

    My condolences as well.

    Sometimes it is easy to forget there are rl humans
    behind all the /posters/chrs. we meet in UO or these forums.
    Our rl lives are fragile/temporary on this planet,
    even if/when we are in the best of health,
    someone whom was with us today or for years,
    may not be here with any of us tomorrow.

    There is a memorial building on Siege, perhaps those of you whom knew
    her chrs. in Gilfane and on Siege, may have some memories that you can post in some player written books.
    Perhaps Kelmo can add those mementos or memories
    into the Aeric Horn Memorial building,
    with players' memories of Folger of Iantown, and AericHorn.

    As well as being a staunch ally, teacher and sister-in-arms in game, in real life she was also larger than life, the best mother-in-law you could wish for. The game will never be the same without her on call to get me out of trouble and on our weekly excursions. She is sorely missed by us all.

    We've lost a lot of people over the years. Some of them had closer friends here than in their real lives. That is a particularly sad thing.

    There are never words to replace someone you love, but many of us feel your sadness at the loss of your friend.

    Very sorry to hear that we have lost a good player, but more sorry that the world has lost a good person. My sympathy and prayers are with the family.

    Calliope leaves many, many friends & UO family. She will be greatly missed.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those responsible for the Yew memorial 'stones' placed on Europa at 38o 29'N 31o 55'W, it is just right, I think Calliope would have loved it.
