Kat and I spent some time both yesterday and today (December 18/19, 2010) at the Second Life memorial for Delinda Dyrssen. We'd both become friends with Delinda -- who hadn't? -- and were glad to be able to get together with her many, many friends to help celebrate her life.

Sunday's memorial at The Pocket had many more live musicians, comedians, and friends honoring Deli, including Pilgrim75 Swashbuckler, Lorin Tone, Arimo Teixeira, Frets Nirvana, The Follow, CraigLyons Writer, TwinGhost Ronas, Guitar Zane, ZeroOne Paz, me, Lauren Weyland, Maximillion Kleene w/ Cellandra Zon, Wytchwhisper Sadofsky, Silas Scarborough, Ande Foggarty, Blues Heron, Vaughan Michalak, Freestar Tammas, Von Johin, Moondoggirl Moomintoog, Kit Guardian, Matthew Perrault, RoseDrop Rust, and ColeMarie Soleil
