# 69 It was a sunny afternoon today, and then all of the sudden rain came down pretty hard… The sky did turn darker, but the sun was still out too… I don’t really know how to describe it - something like a gloomy day and sunny at the same time… Anyway, gloomy is how I’ve been feeling the past few days on here… I didn’t realize before how deeply I could be affected by sad news that I learned here. While I don’t deny that friendship grows from interactions on here, I have always tried to maintain certain anonymity realizing that these are not people that I interact face-to-face after all. But when I heard about Ayu, a myLotter who recently died in her sleep, I was completely in shock and my tears just started to come down. I was crying, and I’ve never even met her. Not in person anyway, but it was only a couple of days before I heard the news that I was interacting with her on here. And I remember her even from her early days as a newbie. Rest peacefully sweet girl… Thank you for the friendship. I will miss you dearly.

I'm so sorry to hear this . I wasn't sure who she was, but then I saw your comment . . . ah, now I remember her. We have crossed paths here though I didn't get know her well. We may not meet in person the many friends we make online, but certain they can touch our hearts - friends are friends no matter what. May she rest in peace.

I too was like that and I even stopped mylotting. I only interacted with her here and I even remember her last post. She started simple questions so it is easy to participate. She was so young and nice and I felt I lost some one very close. Anyway some one helped me to change my mind set and told me it may be a fake news. So I decided to participate here for the better change.
