Rest In Peace Lee

We grew up as strangers because of our father's sibling differences. But technology connected us. Made us meet. Suddenly I know your thoughts, wishes, likes (facebook) and where you are (foursquare) and if you like that place or not. I suddenly know the movies that you are watching and the music that makes you excited. You love Christina Aguilera so passionately.

You got sick and I was so worried. You stopped updating your timeline and miss your updates. You got better and suddenly I saw your life again. And then your account got quiet.

And then I just found out that you died. From your friends writing in your timeline that you rest in peace.

I cried and its sad. Its always sad to lose a relative. You are so young and theres so much promise in your future. I can only imagine the pain that your family is going through from losing you.

Rest in peace Lee. I might have not met you personally but you have made a mark in my life. Thanks for the memories albeit online.

I think you can still be very close to someone even though you have never met them because of how much of our lives we share online now. You probably know more about him than if you had connected in person. So sorry for your loss, Melinda. Tara (After The Rain),

I am sorry for your loss! Even if you just knew him online, he was a friend.

I'm sorry for your loss Melinda. The same thing happened to me. There was a blogger that I loved. She lived in Jamaica. Although we had never met, we commented on each other's blogs.

She and I had a strong connection because of our losses. My mom and father-in-law passing away so close together and she had lost her dad, a brother and her identical twin. I was stunned to learn she had passed away.

Glad he touched your life though. Makes us realize blogging does matter to others.
