I thank you for your support of Navigating Cyberloss, and my work in raising the profile of online friendships and the very different form of grief which comes when our online friends depart from the physical world.
You may well have noticed that things have been very quiet here for some time. I imagined that I might one day be less involved with the site, if no less involved with the movement to raise our voices around the issues of online loss. However, my work and my life have taken me in an entirely different direction.
Though my online friendships remain some of my most cherished experiences, and Chris in particular still occupies a fond place in my memory, I do not feel that I have much more to say on the subject that I have not already covered.
My plan as of now (11th April 2015) is that the site will remain open as an archive of the posts I have made on my experience. Should you need to reach me, I can be contacted on Twitter (@BottonoWriter) or on Facebook (Casey Bottono)
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
