In Memory of Ms_Outlaw - "Debbie Lee"

file_290798.jpg Debbie Lee [known on Renderosity as Ms_Outlaw, and in the literary world as D. Lee] was a very talented and passionate artist with a big heart and a gentle soul. She truly loved the Renderosity community, which was very evident in her postings to fellow Renderosity artists� gallery images. An active member of both the Vue and Poser forums, she was always there for other artists, with encouraging words and helpful comments. Yet, not many knew that this modest woman was also an award winning �cover artist� and author. She �wrote to entertain� with fantasy art and stories, exploring the world of vampires, and other creatures of darkness [many co-written with best friend Kammy Bonias]. She wanted, �people to be able to curl up with one of our stories and be swept away from reality for a little while.� August of this year, Debbie was diagnosed with lung cancer. On September 13th, Debbie�s bright light was dimmed ... however, it will never be extinguished, as she will live eternally in her art, her stories, and in the hearts of her family and friends.

Not only did she leave behind a legacy of images and fantasy tales, she also left behind simple words for authors and artists to live by � �Keep at it, but more importantly, enjoy what you are doing. Have fun and always remember, dreams are only unreachable if you stop trying!� Debbie Lee, a native Canadian, is survived by her loving husband, two sons, family pets, and of course more friends than she could ever imagine.

It's always sad to hear of the loss of anyone who is kind in both heart and spirit, and Debbie certainly fits that description. The loss is even sadder when they are taken so quickly. My sympathies go out to her family and friends.

Very humble words. Having suffered the trauma 12 years ago of somebody very close dying from lung/brain cancer (my mother from smoking and at the same age of Debbie), I can understand where Debbie's words were coming from. Rest in peace Debbie, look down and smile - you left your mark on many people. To her family - You have all my prayers and sympathies at this time and I'm sure you are all very proud of her. By all means mourn Debbie's loss, but also afford a smile at all she achieved. Remember she will be always there for you...you will never lose the support of her love and strength, because it is something that is felt in the soul...

Deb was a really good friend to me, though I never met her. We often exchanged ideas and spent many, many hours together in virtual worlds. I will miss her dearly.

I am dumbfounded by this news. I had no idea that any of this was taking place. My deepest sympathies to her family at this tragic moment. I found her to be always caring, generous and inspirational to anyone who she met online in the vue forum. I will miss her everpresent vivaciousness. She will always hold a special place in my heart. I shall remember her in my prayers. With great sadness, ~beck

I just visited Debbie's gallery and website for the first time and am truly sorry I didn't get to know this talented and wonderful woman who had so much to give, artistically and personally. She truly seemed to live her life to the fullest. Her last words both touched and broke my heart. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. CC

I've known Outlaw since I joined the WBS online RPG gaming community back in 1995. I was her XO in the Shadow Bands for many years. She was my friend, my online mentor, my gaming partner & my sister. She helped raise my spirits when I was down & deflated my ego when it needed it. We talked, argued, commiserated & confided. She had a great many friends and very few enemies (none really serious, more pests than problems). She was a horrible speller / typist & took our ribbing with simple grace. Goodbye OL... I love you very much and will miss you greatly. You were always a class act.

I am still under the shock of the news since Debbie won the Vue forum Challenge just before departing to the hospital. I hope her family will take comfort in the knowledge of the many friends and members of our community that she touched with her art.
