George Harrison reassures through song in the background: “It’s alright”. I mumble along, perhaps if I sing it loud and strong enough I will believe it. I begin to pace the space between the front room door and the bookshelf, begging nobody in particular: “Please, let it be wrong.” I return to the computer, the news is still the same. Chris is dying, George’s music was something we both held dear, and it now seems the only way I have of making sense of this horrific situation.
That was me in April 2007. Three years later, I began this blog to record my journey and provide a community for those who have experienced the loss of online friends.
Online friendship is just as meaningful and worthy of recognition. Their stories should be shared and remembered. I hope this blog will become a place where that happens. Please feel free to share your thoughts and comments.
