In Memoriam

In Memoriam. Twinkle Villotas father passed away yesterday in Dhaka Bangladesh. I have spoken before of how the estate I own would not exist if it weren't for Twin. Many in Secondlife have told me that if it weren't for me, they wouldn't have stayed. I don't know, certainly my ego loves that. I can tell you that it was only by the greatest fortune that I was introduced to Twin a few days after I came to Secondlife and I do know that the reason I'm still here is because of her. I feel the loss as if it were a member of my blood family. A measure of the kind of person Twinkle is comes from a line from the brief Email I received yesterday.

I will do that.
"The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life.
Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof."

And so it goes
While my heart is so very heavy I will try to love you all, brinda


  1. I too was saddened to hear at the news of Twinkles loss.
    Although I didn’t know her dad, one can be sure he was a quality person. He must have been because his dauther, Twinkle, certainly is.
    Twinkle, my love, respect and my prayers are with you and your family during this very difficult time of your life.

    Your friend ,

    From one who has been there to one who is there now. Twinkle, my thoughts are with you.
