January 17, 2023:It is impossible to write an appropriately heartfelt and grateful message to the Crown and Kingdom of Ansteorra, for being honored with an Augmentation of Arms (video at link). I feel a high degree of regret for not being able to accomplish a great number of goals I had planned. Reflecting on the people and activities we passionately shared, I’m very proud of the legacy I leave behind. I’m extremely honored to know that much of what I’ve learned the last 20 years will continue to be shared. I do regret not being able to receive the honor in person. I wish all the best to everyone and hope you know how much I have missed being among you.

There is much to be said of HE Gassion de Beaumarchais. Baron, Chivalric Fighter, Rapier Fighter, Cut & Thrust Fighter, Skilled Metal Worker, and more. Yet here is a man who has gone out of his way to help me especially in my first few years of rapier. I was gifted a rapier blade and Gassion made me a hilt. He purposely made it an open hilt so I would learn how to properly defend my sword hand. I was so thrilled and wanted to show my thanks. I offered him a rose yellow of friendship. Later that day he worked with me on parries for what seemed like hours. There has been several other times HE took time out to work with me one-on-one on a specific skill and despite many a bruise later I am a better fighter because of it.

I didn't know Gassion very well, but we camped right next to them at my first Pennsic. We share stories and food through our time there. He was encouraging and always had a story to tell or advice to share. His love for his wife was obvious. His laughter was contagious.

Gassion, at our house, we had been admiring this photo moment of you both shortly before we read of your deserved Augmentation of Arms given by a wise Crown! I believe the photo is at a GW C&T where I was deeply impressed by your demeanor and your devotion.

You are so often in our thoughts as an educator, warrior, and friend. You have always taught so much that enriches the hobby and, verily, the lives of many. It is a blessing to know you and Delesse.
