I just found out a long time SecondLife friend (Vx Shaw) passed away last month. I had not been in SL since last year. I had gotten really burnt out after 2.5 years of playing and needed a break. Weeks turned into months. I kept meaning to go back and check in but my home computer died and I just got it fixed. Now I'll never have a chance to talk to Vx (aka Bazoo Benton) again.
The things I remember best about V is her upbeat attitude and the endless support that she provided her friends. She let me camp my store out on Abydos for a year for free. She also always supported my many and sometimes wacky endeavors in-game. She will truly be missed.
