    I apologize in advance for any wording in this announcement that may come across as terse or unprocessed, as I have spent the past several hours fumbling for comprehension of this situation and it is eluding me.

    Last night, LAJ passed away in hospital.

    The best I can do at the moment is offer you all a basic timeline of events and hope it suffices to answer as many of your questions as possible.

    If it was not abundantly clear to you, she was the Demerzel of the forums. While many, many Head Admins have come and gone for their season, LAJ "has always been here and always will be", quietly keeping the entire kingdom operating.

    Be grateful for her quarter century of service to this community and please be patient that absolutely no technical things are going to be dealt with until the staff have opportunity to process this and adjust to taking on some of her responsibilities on the tech side of things.

    Be well. Lean on your community if you need to and please do not hesitate to message me or any other member of the staff if we can be of assistance.

    OMG. She was practically inhuman. She was on here night and day since forever... I can't imagine this place without her.

    I'm really going to miss her. I don't even know what to think right now. :( I hope the rest of her family's ok. @};-

    I’ve been around using 2 different accounts since 2009. To say I am stunned and saddened would be an understatement. LAJ was a rock, a constant in this community.

    My prayers are with all affected. If you need support, feel free to PM me. Happy to help if I can.

    I was extremely saddened and devastated by this news.

    She was truly a rock and tech wizard for our corner of the Internet for such a long time. She will be missed by our whole community.

    It will take time to heal and process.

    May she Rest In Peace eternally@};-

    I echo everyone else in here. It just seems impossible to think of these boards without LAJ there, always keeping things running smoothly.

    I can’t find the words. I’m stunned by this. She’s going to be so missed around here. Mod Squad won’t be the same without her calm presence. RIP LAJ. @};-
