Greetings Everyone,

I am absolutely devastated atm and cant even begin to put words in motion. Tonight I was contacted by Shelly's daughter with this message:

Benjamin, I wanted to let you know, as I'm not sure anyone else was in contact with your group, but Shelly (Morigana) suffered from an unexpected heart condition and never woke up Thursday morning. She was so happy to come to Seattle and meet with all of you and you were an truly important part of her week. Thank you, to the entire guild, for being a large part of her life. I cannot believe this has happened. -B. (her daughter).

Many of you knew Morigana as an elder of our family who has traveled with us since Warhammer Online. This is a major shock as I just met her for the first time a few months ago and I am completely lost for words.

No words can express the sorrow of losing a close friend. She knew that she was loved and enjoyed the moments that she shared with us. I wish her fair winds and following seas. For her family that remain behind, I wish them comfort in this time of grief and strength that she will never fade from memory.

Oh my God, this is such sad news.. I only recently started interacting with her online, after she was quite vocal on my own get well page over the last year while i was recovering in hospital. What i picked up about her is that she was a kind, gentle soul, who made time for everyone, even people she didn't know all that well. She will be hugely missed within the community as a whole.

Fog, please extend my sincerest condolences to her family and let her daughter know from me that it was people in the community like her mom and so many others that saw me fight my own battle for recovery and live to tell the tale.

She will be in my memory always.

~Findan

I never got to meet Morigana & only chatted with her in-game... She was one of the pillar of Gaisioch for me – always positive, always the voice of reason, always there for WvW.

Running WvW without her won't be the same – tonight I kept thinking that I saw her nameplate but then I would remember... I think I will always be looking for her on the battlefield.

My most heartfelt condolences to her family & to everyone in the guild who knew & loved her.

It's going to be hard to imagine gaming without Morigana.

Though sadly I don't think I directly interacted with her over voicecoms more than a few times over the past 6-7 years, she has been a staple presence fighting alongside me in-game since long before I had ever heard the name Gaiscioch.

She will be deeply missed.

This is some sad news indeed.

I did not have the pleasure to know Morigana very well but she happily answered my questions in-game and gave a hand when I needed.

I know many members of Gaiscioch made the journey through all those games with her and knew her from close or afar for many years. On one side, I am happy for everyone who got to know her and spend time with her doing something she loved and on the other side, I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Losing someone we know and cherish is never easy, and the physical distance that separated us while they were alive is completely irrelevant. It is the connection, the relationship and the interactions we had with each other that matter and makes it so hard to say goodbye to someone that took such an important place in our live.

To everyone that is touched by her unexpected passing, please remember that everyone in the Gaiscioch Family is behind you and there for you.

This has been truly a sad year for Gaiscioch losing such loved friends and I am looking forward to our Guild Hall even more to commemorate these wonderful souls, as they watch over us from above.

Fog is there anyway we can do some type of service in both games for our fallen, For me I have really come to realize how these folks impact our everyday lives and until they pass you, it then hits you how bad you will miss them and how important they are to you, and it does not matter if you ever meet them in person, they are family.  I would be willing to set it up in ESO side of the house.

Wow... I've tried to find the words for this one but I can't. She was the first person to welcome my wife and I into GSCH. We took a hiatus and the name left my memories until the other day when my wife started bringing up some of the past. 

This is truly a loss and she will be remembered by our family here and online. If anyone is making a care package let me know I don't know what I can do but I'd love to commit something to her family. 

We have had what seems to be many losses to our family so recently. My condolences to all those that have recently lost someone.

I have been a long time guild member since days of DAoC, do not often use voice or guild chat .   When testing ESO, I decided to reach out to a couple guild members, Morigana was one of them.   We shared a number of game experience, creating our characters, and to think outside the box.  She also was there to give my wise advice, and support through my two cataract surgeries.  During the year we shared much,  she told me she was coming to Seattle for the family get together, I was so excited to finally meet her.  She stayed at a hotel near me, so we got to spend more time.  On the ferry ride home, she was so glad she had come,  it was a true family reunion.  For me she became a true Sister of the Heart, I will miss her dearly.   My journey will be a bit slower, for I plan to stop  to smell the flowers, and treasure my memories I have of a dear friend.

Having just recently returned from deployment and still settling back in I just saw this. I am quite saddened by this news. Morigana was among the first guild members I came across in game when ESO started and I was brand new both here in the guild and to online games like ESO. She was a great help and very friendly and I found myself searching her out as we ran through many of those early events. I will always remember her friendliness and willingness to help fondly. She will be missed and my thoughts are with her family and friends. As we say in the Polar Icebreaking world...fair winds and open leads Morigana.
