Goodbye Osprey…

10 Dec

Friends of Osprey as well as those who followed her online would know of her long time battle with MS. I’m sad to say that its a battle she lost yesterday, although she did so on her terms which sums up Osprey perfectly – she lived life her way.

Os was my mate in SL, the single person most responsible for my staying in SL after the initial novelty of the place wore off in early 2007. She gave me purpose, diection and a chance to create. She shared her world and friends generously and I will always love her for that.

The Army of Os

    :-( that’s too bad. It’s been a while since you’ve posted. I thought you would never come back.

      I’m just soooo busy at work (nearly 7:30 pm and still here!) so I’ve not much time or energy for posting. I’m hoping to post more over Xmas and then re-start in 2014. Over the years I’ve had many long pauses in the blog, all of them related to workload :)

        Oh. That’s understandable. What do you do for a living? If it’s ok to ask.

          Course it is :-) I work at a University auditing projects funded by the European Union. A lot of paperwork and deadlines and 12 hour days :-(

      Hi Luce – I’m really sorry I missed it but I was told it was 3am UK time so didn’t try to make it. Only later did I find out it was 6pm GMT but I was looking after the kids the and couldn’t have come. I still can’t really believe she’s gone.

    Nice pics, HBA! I know what you mean, I still find it a bit hard to believe she’s gone, too. I’m so glad I was lucky enough to meet her… so many happy memories of the Kahruvel group and all our adventures!

      Hiya Ilia, she was a very special person and I’m sure that wherever she is, she is putting on a brilliant show x
