|Let the memory of Sanguinarius be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of Sangi,
born on December 17, 1970
and passed away on August 3, 2015.
At only 44 years of age, she was taken from us way too soon.
We will remember her forever.
We at Shadowlore and the entire vampire community have recently lossed one of it's major contributers and dare I say icon!
Sanguinarius (Sangi) "Elizabeth Bishop" was about as close as could be a founder and the start of vampire information sites since the internet was born.
In fact when i first got online years ago her site appeared with every search i did for vampires and I know i'm not the only that had that expierience.
I was blown away with the amount of information that was before my eyes.
It in turn led me to many other places and people I could talk
to and be accepted for who I was.
Shadowlore may have never existed if it was'nt for her
as the others who help make it successfull was found through the
above mentioned links and info that the site consisted of.
I had the pleasure of meeting her at a few Shadowlore gatherings in the past and for the many who have'nt are probably expecting
some dark goth looking lady with fangs and the whole typical typecast.
Who she actually was...is the complete opposite.
Sure she had some hair color changes and such but she was one of the sweetest caring individuals one could ever meet, not to mention hilaroius!
It is our duty to keep her alive and the rest of the community alive by continuing what she started as i'm sure she'd have it no other way.
She will always be around when we share our memories,
our stories, and our laughter that only she could bring.
You will always be missed Sangi...and may you rest in peace
where ever you may be!

Sanguinarius | 1970-2015 | Vampire Community Pioneer
The Vampire Community has suffered an immense loss of a pioneering elder, educator, and role model. A short while ago it was relayed and confirmed from a very dear friend, Jeff Holland, that Sangi (Sanguinarius) passed from this life during the morning hours of August 3, 2015.
Sangi, thank you for all that you did for the real vampire community and those who were inspired and helped through your resources. We love you and our heart aches — you will be missed more than words can adequately express!

"Eternally grateful for all that you have done for me, for all the education, for all the projects. You are forever missed sister, and friend. I miss all the joking around and silliness. You always knew how to take a situation and turn it into a laugh. Hugs. ~Happy Birthday old friend~"
"Love and miss you, thinking of you on your Birthday..much love as always"
"Thinking of you on your Birthday..much love dearest Sister.
Miss you so much...with much love as always."
"I will be forever grateful. You will be missed, Sangi."
"You will be missed dear friend. You provided light and love to do many and enriched the lives of those fortunate enough to have you have their world. Rest well dear one until next time."
"Sangi was the one (outside of family) who provided my first big step in the long path that has been my membership and acceptance in the Online Vampire Community. She inspired me in so many ways, one of which was my own site, which she had claimed as the sister to her own. She was one badass, strong, funny woman who knew what she wanted and did what was needed to get it. She was taken from us far too soon, but I'm positive her legacy will live on, and she's probably looking down on us with a smile on her face. Especially since so many have been gathering in her IRC chat room for what I like to think of as a long running wake. I'll miss you, Sangi. Much love."
"I will miss you Dear Sister..
you were a blessing to us, an inspiration, taught us much, you were a True Leader and Elder in the Community.
You were an example to us all, you lead by example, what you said you did...
Thank you for being You..
Miss you Sangi..
May you Rest In Peace... Until we meet again.
"Sangy will be forever missed, she was a great influence in helping me become established in the late 90's upon entering the VC. She was a guide and mentor who showed me how to refine myself over the years. We were active on the old php nuke sites, yahoo, and aol groups. We talked via messenger reflecting on the past, excited for this new era. Among a hailstorm of madness. Sangy supported the establishment if Ravenheart and helped us grow and maintain. I already miss our talks, laughing, and her feisty personality. Liz is a beautiful soul taken from us to early. But never forgotten. May she spread her wings, and be the blessing bat to keep watch over us all."
"There is such a large space missing in my heart now, it is hard to put the emotions into words. You where one of the first to help me come to grips with what I am. You did not care if a person was vampire, donor or whatever. You always strived to provide knowledge and support to one's who seek. It will take a lot of people to fill in your set of shoes. Love you and miss you E."
"I miss you. We phoned, we texted, we chatted for hours. We brainstormed we laughed, we laughed some more, we made a difference. I'll do my part of keep fighting the good fight, but there will always be an empty chair at the table, for you. xxoo"
"I cherish all the years of fun and friendship and sisterhood with you.
I will miss you forever."
Have a suggestion for us?
