Hi, everyone. I used to be Aratlithiel/Daffodil Bolger once upon a time. I haven't seen a lot of you for a while, but I wanted to first thank [livejournal.com profile] baranduin and [livejournal.com profile] cali_se for starting this community and allowing us a place where we can be with others who loved our [livejournal.com profile] mews1945.

Second, I wanted to let you know that the service was lovely. It was, not surprisingly, full of smiles through tears, and Julia's family was as loving and welcoming as she was. It was comforting, but it also made everything so real, so it was also... hard.

I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] aprilkat and [livejournal.com profile] lavendertook for hugging me and letting me awkward at them for a while. You'll probably hear more from them about the service later, and they'll likely be a bit more eloquent about it. Julia's brother, Bob, officiated and spoke with such great fondness of Julia's life and the people and things she loved, among them, all of you here. She didn't differentiate between her "fandom life" and her "real life". To her, it was all part of her life, and she loved every one of you--of us--with no conditions.

She loved you. On the day we officially tell her goodbye, that's the one thing I wanted to say, to make sure you know. She loved you.

And thanks to all of you here for... just for being here.
