On a serious note:

A few days ago, I learned that a woman I knew online had suddenly passed away. I had actually met her on this community, although I don't think she has been active here for about five years.

Like many of my online friends, she was someone I knew, but not well. Occasional conversations, seeing her comment on other friend's pictures, that type of thing. Its hard for me to connect our make-believe world of fun and sillyness with very real things like death.

But I just wanted to say, that even though sometimes it seems we are just here to joke around, that the relationships I have with every one of you, and with all of you as a community, mean something to me. Knowing all of you, even in a small way, is important to me.
