Yesterday, a family member close to me departed (some of you know who she is). She had cancer, and despite surgery it had come back and spread. She spent her last days at home, and passed peacefully.
The idea of virtual worlds was a bit beyond her, but she was pleased I had a following online, and was putting the spotlight on the good people were doing, notably the Relay for Life in Second Life. And with her passing, I have more reason to cover it than ever.
Newser updates over the next few weeks are likely to be sporadic due to dealing with the details, as well as pondering. A number of Relay track sneak peek pictures have been uploaded ahead of time, as well as a few articles and press releases.
To those whom were there for me with words of support, or even just listening, thank you.
