Tribute to a Fellow-Blogger: Alexys Fairfield Rest In Peace

Alexy's Web Profile Picture

Earlier this week, I received an email informing me that my friend (and your fellow-blogger), Alexys Fairfield, has passed away: may she rest in piece. 

I used to call her Lady A. I called her that because indeed she was a lady.
LS used to call her Lady X. He called her that because her intelligence, humour and interaction in the blogosphere was sharp and intellectually sexy - many times she caused us to roll on the floor laughing.
Alexys, LS, Mel  and I were supposed to run for the White House this year (we joked about it in 2008) but, alas, God wanted her to run along to Heaven instead. 
She was amazing! She still is, from above - radiating her Light and Love upon us all. 

Lady A loved life, people and everything that she considered a blessing from the Lord. Her belief in, devotion to and relationship with God reminded us that Light is always shining, despite the occasional moments of darkness. 
Alexys was grateful for her existence and for everything surrounding her. Her generosity was contagious. Her Message was Love. 

We shared spiritual beliefs and we had a lot in common - she was like a sister to me.

Alexys, I love you and I will never forget you. 
See you next time around, girl!

  1. This comes as a shock. How did she die? Max, you, me and Alexys had quite a bit of fun planning on how we should run for office and what we would do. I was just thinking about that and realized how much I missed it. I am really sad about her passing. She was quite funny and very insightful. I will miss her.

    1. Hi Mel,

      Indeed it does, my friend. I am not in position to give specifics but she was ill. We had spoken a week earlier and days later I receive the news.
      Yes, we did have fun back then, planning our 2012 campaign *nodding*. I missed it too, I still do.

      I think all of those who knew her will miss her - she was an incredible human being.

      Mel, thank you so much for having paid tribute to her :). You are an Angel.

  2. Alexys passed away? When? Max, I am so sorry for your loss...from what I read in your comment section, you two seemed good friends. She was entertaining too.

    Alexys, Rest In Peace.

  3. I am so sorry to hear about this. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends (you included, Max). Rest in peace, Alexys.

  4. Mon Dieu...Max. We never spoke but I liked her comments. Toutes mes condoléances, chérie.

  5. A great tribute Max. I wish that I had known her.

    1. Hi Rummy,

      Thank you, my friend. You would've liked her.

  6. Oh, I'm SO VERY SORRY to hear this. I've never really gotten to know her, but I remember her name. May God comfort all the bereaved...

    1. Hi Amel,

      Thank you, my darling.

      It was nice to see you here - thanks for your support!

  7. Sympathies to her family members and relatives...may her soul rest in peace.

  8. Max dear sorry to hear about Alexys death. The beauty of your blog is that your posts always have lots of room for discussion and I always made sure not to skip the the Comments part, and this is only how I knew Alexys through her comments and conversations with you - a beautiful at heart lady she was and always will. Thanks for the beautiful tribute. Anna :)

    1. Hi Anna!

      Thank you for your sympathies, my dear. Indeed, she was (and always will be) a beautiful lady at heart.
      You are most welcome and thank you for your generosity *hug*.

  9. Max, I am very sorry for the loss of Alexys both to you and your circle, and to the larger blogosphere. I know she and you shared a devotion to your communiques and exchange of opinion and intellect. May she rest in peace. I hope she didn't suffer.

    Thank you for the beautiful tribute and for valuing her the way you did and still do.

    My best to you, dear Max.

    1. Hi Lynda,

      Thank you so much for your sympathies, my darling. Amen!

      You are most welcome. I value her and all of you *hug*.

      Lynda, God Bless you!

  10. I LOVED Alexys. She helped me through some troubling times and always knew the right thing to say. In fact, I had her blogrolled as my spiritual goddess. I use to tell her she reminded me of Princess Grace of Monaco for her poise and elegance. She joked back that she looked like a punk white a bright pink mohawk. Then she was my "pink haired lady". She was everything all humans should strive to be.

    I still think of her an miss her.

    Great tribute.

    1. Hi Ubermouth :D!

      I loved her too. That is so beautiful. Such a beautiful ode to her, darling.
      I think we will always miss her - she was such an incredible human being :D.

      Thank you *bowing*.

      Ubermouth, thank you for your gorgeous comment :D. It was great to see you here.


    2. Hi Max,

      Thank you for your kind words. I used to see you at Alexys' all the time,so I know how heartbroken you must be. It's still unfathomable that she is gone,isn't it? Every once in awhile I go to her blog or FB,read it ,and then she is "back" for a little while,at least.

      How are you doing, Max?

    3. Ubermouth,

      You are most welcome, darling. I used to see you too - it was a marvellous place for wonderful discussions :).
      I still find it hard to believe that she is gone, and even though I have accepted it I still find myself thinking about her and our great conversations. We had loads of fun.
      You really miss her, huh?

      I am doing very well, thank you for asking. I have been busy but content ;).
      And how about you, how are you doing?
