Sir Emrys,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you both in this time of great trial. The regal bearing and grace I still associate with you and your lady have been my touchstone.

Godwyn and I are stunned at Sir Emrys' news.  Please join us in sending prayers and wishes of strength and endurance to them both.



Dearest friends in Bjornsborg and throughout Ansteorra,

Monday, 10pm May 4, 2009

It is with the greatest sadness that I must impart this tragic news.  Please feel free to post this email to others throughout our Kingdom.

My wife and gracious Lady, Tonie Kelley (Brianna), is nearing the end of her life's journey.  Even as I write this missive, the Lord's blessed angels are preparing for her journey to heaven.  While a "cancer survivor," the radiation treatments and chemotherapy involved in battling her disease, in addition to three life-threatening infections in recent months, have left her body too weak to respond to her still strong spirit.  Thankfully, she now does not suffer and slumbers in peaceful rest at the Odyssey Hospice located approximately 1/2 mile south of the intersection of Blanco and Bitters road - 13431 Blanco road.  Only a few hours, or perhaps a few days remain in the life of my wonderful friend, soul-mate, partner and loving wife.  With rare exception, I have spent the last month at her side, and will remain so until we part company - parting only until we are again reunited in God's grace. 
If you wish, you may reach me at the hospice via my cell phone number of 210-414-6772.  I would request calling me before coming to bid her good-bye, in case her situation changes without my ability to let you all know.  Funeral arrangements are pending with Porter Loring Mortuary North near loop 1604 North and Gold Canyon road.  Further details will be made available when possible.  I will not be available on-line, so I strongly recommend you call me via the cell phone number provided.

Please keep Brianna in your thoughts, prayers and memories.

With breaking heart, I send my love.
