      It is with breaking heart that I pass on this sad news from the 
Principality of Tir Righ, Kingdom of An Tir.

Viscountess Amanda Kendal of Westmorland (Lion of An Tir, Mistress of the 
Pelican and Laurel), passed away approximately midnight Pacific Time

Sunday am. Her passing was exactly one day after the 8th anniversary of 
the death of her most beloved husband, Master Gerhard Kendal of

Westmorland, Lion of An Tir.  She was surrounded by those she loved from 
both far and near. Amanda and Gerhard were the longest-serving Baron and

Baroness in the entire SCA, as founding Baron and Baroness of Lion's Gate 
(Vancouver) - Jun 8, 1976 (AS XI) through Sep 7, 2002 (AS XXXVII). Their

impact on not only An Tir, but the entire SCA, was profound and wonderful.

There are many lovely pictures of Amanda and Gerhard on the Facebook page 
set up and maintained by her daughter, Countess Melissa

I almost made it. I write these sad words mere hours before my flight 
leaves from Syracuse NY for Seatac (Seattle) airport, for I was to visit

her on the 22nd. Gerhard, Amanda and I had been friends for over 35 years.

I rejoice that two of the most awesome people this organization has ever 
been privileged to know, are now reunited again for Christmas. I however,

am bereft.

Sadly, by my hand from the Baronial Seat of Delftwood, AEthelmearc
