Rebecca's Writings This is going to be very random and updated infrequently, so don't expect too much.

Gothic Rebecca
Community Member
I just found out that a member of the Gaian community passed away a couple weeks ago. I didn't know her, she wasn't on my friends list, and I'm not even sure we even spoke, but I knew of her. She updated the list on a free item thread after the owner of that list quit. I'd read her posts and was grateful for her contribution to that thread. From what I can tell she was very sweet, and a much loved member of the community. While I don't know the exact circumstances surrounding her passing or how anyone even found out, I gathered she was very ill, but told no one of it.

I can't explain why I feel such a great loss for someone I didn't know, and likely had no contact with. I guess for the same reason I get sad when someone quits. In an odd sort of way I always thought of Gaia as a family. I don't know. I'm tired, sad, and babbling now.

I guess this reminds me of something I've been meaning to do for a while, but just haven't taken the time to do it. I'm going to leave a document in a secure, but accessible location. This document will have a list of my profile names and sites, and the passwords to access them. So if something should ever happen to me...if I were to die, someone can access my profiles and let everyone know. That way I won't just vanish inexplicably. My internet friends will at least know why I'm not here anymore.
