Sorry to hear about Kaza passing away. I don't remember ever talking to her much here on the message board, but she always seemed like a very good person. It's always a tragedy when someone doesn't have the chance to live a long life, instead having it cut short.

This isn't real. This is just like that whole "Elsa" thing last year on September 11. People like her don't just die like that. She was too kind...it wouldn't be fair.

ok. thanks Jwal .. I hope if I get a disease like that I'd be able to pronounce it..

It has been stated that she did indeed pass on. It would disrespectful to argue otherwise at this juncture :/

My condolences to her family, I can only imagine what they must be going through right now.

Although I never knew her well, just the fact she was one of us is enough to offer my condolences. I am very sorry for her loss. Rest in Pease girl.

It's a shame I didn't get to know her well, but it seems that many of you have known her well enough to say she was a wonderful member of the community.

My prayers go out to her family.
Many she rest in peace in a place where she will never know pain again.

I didn't know her that well, but from what I've seen and heard, she was a very sweet person. I wish I'd have gotten to know her more. (The only time I got to talk to her was when she helped me recover my password for this account)

My sincerest wishes and condolences go to her family, and may she rest in peace.

That's not what I meant at all. I meant it all happened so suddenly, like the Elsa thing.

RIP Kaza.

I know this thread is old... But I hope people don't mind me posting late.
I wanted to pass on my respects to Kaza and her sister and family, I can't believe I've only just found this thread...I mean, how could I miss it? I feel kinda guilty.

I spoke to Kaz a couple of times through PM and on the board, she was such a lovely person, always willing to help out and just chat. I'm so sorry she's gone, it's awful. I can't imagine how her family are feeling right now.

Again sorry I posted so late... but I wanted to pay my respects.

rest in peace kaza x

Hello,
I've been on inactive here the past few years(mostly to make Kaza's life easier) but I justed wanted to reactivate to post a thank you for all the kind words posted here.

Ameya touched a lot of people online and off- at her work at the hospital and pharmacy, here at Lilymud, at her work with betta rescue, in the other fandoms she belonged to, and within her circle of friends and family.

She was one of the most creative and kind people this fandom has ever had. She came back from total loss of the use of her dominant hand, having to relearn how to use her hand to eat, dress herself- and draw. Not many people would be that brave to start all over again from the start. But she did and leaves her wonderful art work behind as a testatment to that.

I'm glad I finally pestered her enough to join TLK.org back in 2001.

Ehlers-Danos is a degenerative, chronically painful, incurable disease. The gerenal lifespan is 40-45 years. She and I have suffered with EDS and how it disables and cripples you every day of our lives. In the past few months Amy was facing the loss of one eye and encrouching complete blindness, the use of a wheelchair, the loss of 80-90% of the function of her hands, loss of memory due to thining brain tissue and weekly dialisys due to progressive kidney failure. Still she was brave and kind to the end and died instantly. The vessels has thinned so much due to the progression of the EDS that approx. 90% of the brain vessels ruptured in the same instant. She was happy and then gone. And she was saved any more loss of independence and quality of life. Her suffering is over, now we left behind have to suffer with our grief. Her love and memeories help ease that suffering though. We know ho wlucky we were to have her in our life.
I am so proud of her. No one could ask, wish or pray for a better sister or friend. Her courage was the rarest kind- the quiet kind that comes from a truly caring heart that feels more for the suffering of others than their own suffering.

I don't expect I'll ever be as good a person as Kaza. I'm too selfish, too bitter. I can try though, to be better, to be more open, to care more, to be a better friend. She wanted me to finish law school so as soon as I get well enough I'm going to go back.
It's so, so tough though. Things feel meaningless because they don't bring her back. That's a poor way to think but it's also a hard thing to shake. But I've never been alone- not from the moment we shared an egg in the womb. I'm missing my other half now. It's the hardest thing to deal with, I cant explain it. But I'm beginning grief counselling and therapy for post-traumatic stress syndrome(from finding her, trying to do first aid, etc.) Still...I don't feel human any more. I feel like I'm walking through a cardboard cut out of my life, or like a movie set. It's my life but unreal. Time will help I hope but I never could have imagined a life without Ameya. It hurts so much.

My mother, father and I really want to extend thanks to everyone who contributed to donation Lilymud made to the Dartmouth General. I was really surprised and we are very honoured. My Dad will be going there tommorow for the perliminary of his heart surgery actually. And I've spent around a third of the past twenty five months there. Every donation helps the DGH improve care. The care Ameya recieved at the ICU was amazing though. She was dead when she arrived and really the three 1/2 days on life support was to allow for the law and in case of a miracle. One of the nurses there had worked with Amy when they both were working at the Halifax Infirmary ICU and said how special she was and how she deserved the best. Another nurse(who has the beautiful first name of Artist actually) had lost her best friend to the same kind of massive stroke due to EDS at 29. They treated Amy's body with genuine affection and respect and made my parent's and I's time there as much about saying goodbye in a meaningful, peaceful way as they could. Thank you so much as the community and the induviduals who donated sperately. My Mum and I are working on thank you cards but we have about 300 to write and things are slow going. Grief is such a weight, it just drains your energy. And for my Mum and Dad as parents loosing a child, well, as you can imagine they are really in a hard way.

If I may ask a favour of everyone here please don't forget Kazamidori. Look at her art of your charcaters once and while, remember her admin and code work here when you use features like quick reply. I know she'd appreciate it.
Most of you guys here are young- but life can be all too short. You may be facing emotional challenges- be strong, be proud of yourself. You may

Ameya Dobson died at 26. She had so much more to give but we have to remember what she did give during the time she had- courage, a unique creative style of art and thought, kindness and humour. She will always be my sister, will always be in my heart, will always be remembered and will always be loved.

Most of you guys are young here- but life can be all too short. If you're facing emotional challenges- be brave, be proud of yourself. If you are facing physical challenges- be strong, believe in yourself. And never be afraid to care. You never know how much just one simple little kind or patient act can mean to someone.
I never imagined Kaza could have affected so many hundreds of people online and off but she took the time to care, even when her own life was so painful and so damn hard, she honestly, patiently cared. It's the best kind of legacy you can leave.

EN I solemnly promise that as long as I live, I will not for a moment forget Kaz or you for that matter. If there is anything at all I could do for you, please let me know. I really care for you as a friend. Kaz was such a sweet special person and you are too.

I am fairly new to TLKFAA and lilymud, so unfortunately, I can't say that I even heard of her before her passing. I wish I could have though. She sounds like a wonderful person, truly. I may not have known her, but she is one of us, and she will never be forgotten.
In a way, I know what she was going through, not to that extreme though. I have congestive heart failure, a disease where your lungs fill up will excess fluids. I have fluid overload. Soon, I will have to have a pacemaker.
So anyway, Kaza will always be remembered, whether we knew her or not. Rest in peace

She won't be forgotten--she brought others into her warmth and caring so willingly there are many, many people here who keep her memory with the same, and by the same token want you to take good care of yourself, too.

I am quite new here so I am not very familiar with the members. But that's so depressing to find out a potential friend has passed away before getting the chance to know them. May she rest in peace.

Gosh, this is crushing news. I used to run around here a lot when I was in my teens (I am 26 now) and like many others I never spoke much with her, but I always knew of her and appreciated her posts. I am sorry have read this. My thoughts go out to you EN and your family.

I am sorry that I never really knew her. But I am sure she was a very nice and well deserving person to be with such good people. It is always sad to hear the news of a member who passed on even if you never knew them. I join everyone here to pay my respects to her.
May she be happy now wherever she is. My thoughts to you dear Kazamidori

I just want to thank whoever stickied this thread- I think with all Kaza did here it's appropriate as well as very respectful and kind. Good luck to whoever is taking over her admin spot- you have big pawprints to fill but I'm sure you'll do fine!

I also need to thank the people who have also sent well wishes my way. It means a lot to know people care, it really does. My parents and I are doing our best to hang on. It's tough as hell and will never really get easier though I know time dulls the grief. But when it comes right down to it you don't have any options other than lay down and die of a broken heart or to tough it out.

I never thought I'd say this but it's kind of nice to browse around Lilymud again. I hadn't been here before this for like two, two and half years. It's nice to see some folks are still around though that I'd lost touch with over time and especially the two years I was really sick.

Gosh I am like two months late in finding out about this. I'm utterly shocked to find this out. Man I am so sad that such a wonderful person is no longer with us. My heart goes out to EN and her family. It makes me sad that I won't be seeing anymore art from this wonderful artist.

Rest in peace Kaz, for at least you aren't suffering anymore <3
