I'm so sorry to hear this Smiley Sad

A PSN friend is like a real friend to me, no matter what. I feel what you feel. I give all my condolences to her friends and family in this tragic accident. RIP another great user of PS Home. You will me missed.

Wow.  I'm wiping away tears as I'm reading this thread.  It doesn't help that the subject line of this thread matches a lyric from The Alan Parsons Project's "Time", one of my favorite sad songs ever.  Truly heartbreaking.  I'm so sorry for your loss Dean and offer my prayers and condolences to Laura's family, fiancee and friends.  I never had the chance to know Laura, but probably passed by saw her unknowingly on Home from time to time.

 

Its amazing that we know these people a half a country, sometimes a half a world away and when something tragic befalls them it hits just as hard and hurts just as much as if it happened to a person we interacted with in real life.  Say what you will about the pros and cons of social media and applications such as Home or even Facebook, its comforting to know that for every insensitive "keyboard Rambo" out there are many more wonderful people who do care, keeping alive the spirit of people like Laura McDermott.

 

May she rest in peace and may God bless and watch over her family.

Thanks everybody.  

 

Thanks ILLUMIN-X for supplying information about Laura's accident.

 

Thanks Trawnza for thoroughly cleaning up that thread when you merged it with this one.

 

Thanks for the kind words Tony, Mike, everyone.  I think I recall a thread about your friend Mike, maybe a year or so ago.  Made me  appreciate my Home friends a little more, sort of like what CoolMe was talking about.

 

Thanks whoever GETUPKEEPONGOLNG is.  I'm sure Laura wouldn't have minded using her name to promote a cause she believed in.  I know it took quite a bit of research to come up with that information.

 

But OMG Ann, are you trying to make me cry?  I was in college when that Alan Parsons Project came out.  That particular song, "Time", I listened to at least one million times but haven't heard or thought of it in years.  What a blast from the past.  You made me look it up and play it, and "Goodbye my friend, maybe for forever..." almost killed me.

Thanks again.  Smiley Happy  Dean

Life sometimes can be so deceiving, but it can end in a split second...

 

I myself am passing through a difficult time, may she Rest in Peace and never be forgotten.

It just goes to show you how precious life really is, and how much friends and family really mean, sometimes we take life for granted, and we never know, that one split second can change our entire life forever.

Live life to the fullest and enjoy the moment, Smiley Happy On a bright side.
