Fly High, SlyRaven

Fly High, SlyRaven

We regret to share the sad news that SlyRaven, aka Amber Coleman (owner of Blackbird Stables) has left us after a valiant battle with ALS. She leaves behind a daughter and son, and was just 41 years old.

We are heartbroken by the loss, however we are reminded how lucky we have been to get to know her within the community.

Amber was not just a friend to many of us; she was a source of unwavering strength. She fought hard against ALS, showing incredible courage that inspired us all. Her resilience in the face of such adversity was a testament to her spirit and determination.

In November, Amber was kind enough to share with us some of the details of her battle with ALS. We recently chatted with Amber's mom, and she wanted to share 'Photo finish made her happy, even at her worst times'. We are proud to have been a part in building a game and community to give her a light in the darkness. But we know she helped us more than we helped her.

Amber's spirit will forever remain a part of our community. I hope we can all honor her memory by living with the same strength and dedication that she exemplified every day. A true inspiration.

Fly high, SlyRaven. We will miss you deeply. May your light never fade.
