We found each other some 6 years ago through Animal Crossing and through our responses, we felt an instant connection. Which was strange, as we were so different in our every day lives. But our connection in gaming was strong, we could jabber on and on about games, till the cows came home.
How we enjoyed playing together, from Nintendo games to app games and back. Nothing better than to check on each other’s progress in one of the app games we had going, give each other tips about our DS adventures. Along the way our friendship deepened, and we talked about our daily life. Every single day, for years and years. Apple devices and iMessage helped enormously, our iMessage was never quiet, several chats a day. They weren’t just about games anymore, but about our joys, sadnesses, beliefs and worries.
You hated all the social media and were very private, and would never in a million years have contemplated maintaining a blog. Still, you were my biggest supporter and I know you read each and every single blog I made. You enjoyed our talks about our holidays in your beloved America, even when fate intervened and our intended real-live visit last summer had to be cancelled.
And now, all of that is over. My iMessage will be quiet, my days will never be the same. I hope you are with the Angels now, seeing everyone you had to let go over the years. I just now I will miss you every single day. Every game I pick up, every Kindle book I download, all the amazing smilies you found for us to use, they will all make me remember the memories we made together.
Rest well, my dear friend.
