As of today, not only has SF Fan Force lost something amazing and wonderful, but the whole community here and throughout California, that have come together united by one girl who wanted nothing more to live life with her friends to the fullest everyday. We were Chanel's strength for living, and we were paid back ten fold and so much more with the wonderful spirit that was Chanel. Not only that, but that strength was webbed into every other club she participated in until we all were united by this one girl. It was only two weeks ago that she was unanimously "tricked" into becoming SF Fan Force's CR. lol... Who better could possible Represent SF than the person who already has friends in every club possibly in the region! I was happy to see Chanel accept the position and now unfortunately we must continue without her here. I would say that she would want us now more than ever to be stronger together and continue. More so in a sense finish what she has set the foundation for by just being the person she was. So that EVERY club united under the name of Star Wars can keep Chanel alive not only in their hearts, but also keep her dream alive of having a community of fans committed to peace, truth, and love that she brought to us all everyday. Whether it be Fan Force, 501st, Rebel Legion, or independent SW clubs I believe now that it is time to show what real Star Wars fans are made of. The 501st have expressed the fondest wishes and so have many members of the Rebel Legion. I'm sure every Fan Force chapter all over the world who have heard of this loss feel and will expressed the same sentiments. As Chanel was also one of my own close friend and a Rogue, I feel that we will all honor her not only under the name of Star Wars but in the name of friendship and love she stood for us all. Chanel is now part of the living Force that binds us all, and I believe now more than ever, the Force will be with us always. Good-bye Chanel, a true champion of the Force and you always will be.
