On Friday 4th October 2013 around 12:35pm Fanci Beebe (SL) lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer at home with her family next to her. Fanci Beebe loved FIYC and Sailors Cove in Second Life and she worked so hard over the years. This is very sad news to report on my blog because it’s really heartbreaking. She will be missed by the sailing community and she will never be forgotten.

Fanci Beebe has passed away.
On Friday October 4, 2013 around 12:35pm my soul mate and best friend Fanci Beebe lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She passed peacefully at home with her family next to her.
It seemed like she was doing better and that her treatment was going to give her more time, but sadly that was not the case. The news leaves us all with a great void; Fanci touched so many lives. I know I will never be the same person again and I suspect many of you feel the same.
She loved Sailors Cove and FIYC. She was a strong stubborn woman and she always worked to make Sailors Cove something special. It was not just the way Sailors Cove looked; it was how we all treated each other as a community. Fanci wanted all to feel they were welcome in Sailors Cove and that they had a home there. She always went the extra mile to make new friends comfortable.
Fanci also had a soft, vulnerable side that probably only a few of us knew. She loved me unconditionally, and I am very thankful that our last words expressed the love we held for each other.
I want to thank every one of you for your support of Fanci and for all your wonderful notecards and IMs. Thank you too for supporting the new owners of Sailors Cove. Your support has gone a long way in us helping her family.
This has been my comfort through all of this, I hope you understand:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8: 35, 37-end
Everyone can remember her and send tributes inworld at Fishers Island. There will be a special fleet sail soon and a memorial service in a few weeks.
