Friend Of Mine
« on: March 17, 2017, 04:29:29 PM »
A friend I knew over the internet died. A mutual friend of ours just informed me. "Dwilly, Dwill, David, Dwilldadon" RIP my friend.
But, uh...well there it is.

Condolences. I've grown close to a lot of folks that I've never met in person...

A friend is a friend, no matter how... visible.

Thank you everyone. On the bright side, I found my calling in life.
But, uh...well there it is.

I started this part of the forum because a person I had never met in real life died.
Sorry you had this experience too.
I suspect it will become much more common in future.
