In Memorium Sy Whitesong Who Passed Away on Friday Night

It is with a heavy heart that I must tell all of you that Sy Whitesong, known to many of us as a DJ, left this world at 7:45 PM east coast time.

Brendan MacArthur, Sy's very good real life friend, told me that Sy was in intensive care with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). He has become less responsive to therapy. Sy was with his family throughout the day and was surrounded by the ones he loved when he passed away. 

Brendan gave me this photo of Sy in real life to share with you.  Please leave Brendan a note card if you would like to express your sympathies, or share any of your thoughts.

One of the hardest things about being a resident of Second Life is to deal with grief when a resident passes away-- but at least we did get to know Sy when he was in this world.

  2. My sympathy goes out to all who knew Sy. I admit that I have never met him, although I have heard his name mentioned in DJ circles.

    RIP my fellow music lover :)


  3. I'm sorry about your friend. I remember seeing Sy in sl, but I can't say I was ever friends with him, but he seemed like a really lovely guy and had great taste in music.

    My prayers to his friends/family/loved ones. R.I.P. Sy♥

  4. Very shocked and saddened to hear about Sy's passing...he was one of my first friends in SL and we shared many hilarious moments dancing and chatting at his Jungleboy parties which I will treasure forever.
    He was one of the most friendly,kind and lovely people you could ever meet.
    My thoughts go out to all his family and friends.
    Through teary eyes I say 'Goodbye Sy...thank you for being part of my life'

  5. RIP David "The Shiny Angel"
    Thank you for being part of my Sl, you made it a better place.
    Love forever

  6. His Life and Smile Cheered everyone at the Lagoon and other parties he played. I truely enjoyed the time I spent sharing his Humor and Wit. I hope he finds open arms from all the Gods he helped us awake throughout the Cosmos when we Rocked to his tunes and Cheered our Love for Life and Laughter before them.
