One Year Ago: Memoria

Exactly one year ago on January 4th, we lost an amazing member of the community. Heather Emeraldflame.  Since that time, Wintertusk has expanded Grizzleheim, a magical competition has become the center of a feud and a framing on Wysteria, and the Lion King has come to life in front of us with Zafaria.

We've lost a friend. We lose insight into the game and how to utilize different parts of strategy. We lose someone to talk to. In one year we've added 3 new worlds, 22 new spells, countless new pets and abilities, +50,000 to the gold cap, and +10 to the level cap. The Tower of the Helephant has gone live.  Life goes on. The pain of loss might stick around, but together we can overcome it. The Spiral is forever in motion. Heather, you have not been forgotten. Many of us have dedicated small portions of our homes in your honor or planted a garden. Seeing the coming of Sirens and Insane Bolt I try to imagine what you would say about them.

Until we meet again in whatever world lies beyond Bartleby, just out of his reach with the Spiral Door.

If tears could build a stairway, 
and memories a lane.
I would walk right through the Spiral Gate
and bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "Goodbye".
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to know you -
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.

Yours [Nostalgic] Friend Always,
John Lifeglen
