Saying goodbye to Adele

Standard

Adele Kling, one of our long term tenants, community member and friend, died in real life recently.

To celebrate her life and say goodbye we decided to organise a gathering outside her Fotostudio for the 1920s Berlin community but also her friends from outside the city.

It was a wonderful and emotional moment, made even more special by knowing that her family was observing the ceremony in on a computer in RL, as it happened.
This way we could show them how important Adele had been to us.

I think it says something about Adele that we pretty much filled the sim with visitors that afternoon.

She would have loved it.

The flowers have now been removed and life is getting back to normal.

But I’ve decided to build a little memorial garden in Tiergarten Park where we can be alone with our thoughts and remember our absent friends.

And please, make sure you have something set up for when it happens to you, find a way to let those you leave behind in Second Life know you’ve passed away so we can mourn and say goodbye in stead of wonder whatever happened to you.

  1. That was such a wonderful thing to do, Jo. Having lost 3 friends in SL it is so good to remember them and I am sure her family in RL were touched by your honouring her memory and by showing how much she was loved in SL.
