A very sad day for me



After a 9 month struggle with cancer, my best friend in the real world, who happened to be named Scott,  left this world  today in California.  He was in considerable discomfort at the end, so his passing today came as a relief to me, but a sad shock nonetheless.  Although I have two sisters, I never had a brother -- and Scott filled this role for as long as I knew him.

We became friends way back in High School in New York  when I was 15 years old -- and stayed best friends since. We shared a house in California for a few years. I remember both of us being amused when our families assumed we were a couple -- since my friend was very heterosexual.  Our orientations never really came up much -- although I remember when I came "out" to my friend he said he knew it all along, -- probably before I did.

My friend leaves his lovely wife, who I will help now as best as I can. I want to thank all of you who have supported me over the past 9 months, especially my partner Jago for helping me come to grips with this.  I may be laying low in Second Life for a while, but will be back as my old self shortly.  Just as real life must go on, so must Second Life, because so much good comes out of it.

Thanks for reading, Eddi

  1. I am so sorry to read this post Eddi and I realize how difficult it must have been for you to write it!

    May Scott rest in peace as he is finally free from more pain or discomfort.

    My heart goes out to his widow and his family and to you dear Eddi at this difficult time for you all.

    I am crying for you my friend as you in turn must cry even harder and longer for the friend you loved and now have lost. But this awful darkness that surrounds you now will not stay, Eddi my friend. But for now cry, cry all you want and all you need and whenever you need, it helps, dear Eddi, it is a cure in itself.

    Little by little your world will get lighter and brighter again as you continue your life with the joyful memories of Scott to help you through it all. His love and friendship will be with you at all times!

    Big hugs dearest Eddi,
    Bock
