It is with great sadness that I write this post. It’s only been 3 or 4 months since we welcomed Aimee Long to the ForeverGeek fold, but she was immediately one of us. I am so bad with goodbyes, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we recently found out that Aimee passed away in her sleep.
From her family over @Fringenuity:
This is a post I never imagined having to make, just typing the words feels incredibly unreal. Aimee Long (@aimeeinchains), Fringenuity co-founder, incredible friend, and unbelievably dedicated and imaginative leader, passed away in her sleep late Tuesday evening. She is survived by her son, sister, mother, great-grandmother, and fiance.
I’m in shock, and completely at a loss for how to process this news, or what to say at the moment, except that I know how much she loved all of you, and how very proud she was of this community – not just of the things we’ve accomplished, but of the way we came together and became a family. Fringe, and the Fringedom, made her so very happy.
We will be organizing a tribute to Aimee when we’ve had some time to process and can think a little clearer. For now I’d ask you to keep her family in your thoughts/prayers, and just…be grateful for each other, and for your loved ones. If you’d like to honor her in the mean time, find someone to be kind to, or make a charitable donation in her honor. She’d like that.
Aimee may not have been with us for a long time, but I know she will appreciate any and all condolences we can send her family’s way.
You will be missed, Aimee.
