Just lost a friend November 12, 2007Posted by dorigo in internet, news, personal, social life, travel.
I guess reading on a blog comment that a friend has passed away is an appropriate if a bit crude way to get informed, given that the friend was one I met on the web – and only there, unfortunately. Nonetheless, I felt really saddened this morning, upon reading this comment by her best friend, which informed me of her death. Riqie Arneberg, as some of the most faithful readers here know, often visited this site – I had met her on my Quantum Diaries blog a couple of years ago, and we had made friends. We played bridge online together, and she was able to teach me quite a few things there.
I will have a commemorative post on Riqie out later this week. I am traveling to the US on Thursday, and I hope to meet her friend.
