    It is never easy to lose anyone. But, my goodness 23 years old! With a Daughter. That is unbrearable.

    My heart goes out to each one of you who knew her. But, most of all my heart goes out to her family and that little girl without a Mommy.

    People come and go. But, it's their impact that is still felt days, months, & years later.

    I have been think how God puts people in lives for a reason. This is a perfect example of that.

    I just wanted to extend my deepest sympathies. I didn't know Chanel but was aware of her from the boards. She will be missed.

    I never met Chanel, but I heard about her from a fellow fan. She sounded like the kind of person everyone would want for a best friend. We are all diminished to have lost someone at so young an age, with so much life ahead of her. My prayers are with her family and friends. :(

    A loss this is. God bless this fan, her family, friends, and love ones.

    I never got to meet Chanel, and that is how her loss has touched me.

    To those who have had that pleasure, my sympathies AND "May the Force be with you." :(

    Howdy,

    I know I am not a familiar name around here. I am from Canada and am apart of the Niagara Region Fanforce. I wanted you to know that everyone up here has heard the news and we all send our deepest and most sincere feelings. Though I never met Chanel I am sure she was a fantastic young lady as her loss is felt all the way up here in the great white north.

    YOu guys are in my thoughts, my prayers and my hopes for the future,

    With much love,

    My heart was crushed when I learned of this. I'm a member of The Rebel Legion, and when I read the news this past weekend I was at the brink of tears.

    My sincere condolances to those of you whose lives she touched.

    As many other people here, I never met Chanel, but from what I've heard she seemed like a wonderful person, and her loss is very tragic. I believe I speak for everyone in FF Sweden when I offer my deepest condoleances to her family, especially to her young daughter. :(

    Things like this should not happen. :(

    She has now become more powerful then we could ever imagine. I know a girl who lost he mother when she was 12, it is hard to know people that this has happened to. Even though i did not know her i almost know how it feels to lose people close to you, it is hard to live with and May The Force Be With You, Always.

    Sincerely,

    Leif De Wolf of the Southern Colorado Fan Force.

    So far our donations have reached $725 this morning for Chanel's daughter ($650 decals plus another $75). We have mailed Brian (Hand-Schaub) 90 of the black Imperial decals, then we are making Rebel Decals as well, and a few white Imperial Decals per request. Please be patient if you don't get your decals right away. It is very time consuming and they have to be made by hand, one by one. We are sending more decals to the Las Vegas Comic Con with members of the 501st.

    I'll definitely grab a Rebel Decal if I can.

    I lost someone very dear to me this past week as well, and singing/listening to this song has helped me find some peace. I think it's important to share with you.


    I Know You By Heart (Eva Cassidy)

    Midnights in Winter
    The glowing fire
    Lights up your face in orange and gold.
    I see your sweet smile
    Shine through the darkness
    It's line is etched in my memory.

    So I'd know you by heart.

    Mornings in April
    Sharing our secrets
    We'd walk until the morning was gone.
    We were like children
    Laughing for hours
    The joy you gave me lives on and on.

    'Cause I know you by heart.

    I still hear your voice
    On warm Summer nights
    Whispering like the wind.

    You left in Autumn
    The leaves were turning
    I walked down roads of orange and gold.
    I saw your sweet smile
    I heard your laughter
    Youare still here beside me every day.

    'Cause I know you by heart,
    'Cause I know you by heart.

    I didn't know Chanel, but I heard about her from beezel26 (he made a thread telling us about your CR in the Northeast Regional boards). I am sorry to hear about your loss. My best wishes go out to both of her families at the SF Fan Force and to her daughter aswell.
