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.
