"The world lost a force of nature and we will be feeling that for a long time. We are lucky to have known her, and she has touched all of us that knew her. The enormous pain I feel right now is soothed by the fact that I get to witness how much you saw her and appreciated her. Because it would have been a shame if you had missed it."
"We will make sure that we honor her and we will keep her in our hearts."
She brought such an amazing work to RE Village! Her amazing work and legacy will always live on, especially in the new resident evil game. It breaks my heart to know she passed away. My condolences to her family and friends 💔 😥 #jeanetteMaus #restinpeaceJeanetteMaus— xGamergreaserx (@gamergreaserx) January 28, 2021
