In Memoriam

The gentleman known here as Lalo Telling departed this existence today at 2pm. He died as he lived – gracefully and peacefully. Emspar thanks you all for all the love and good wishes sent from the virtual world to her and Lalo. She asks that you observe her period of mourning by holding off on direct messages or tweeting to her. She is grateful for your kindness and support and caring but needs a time for grief and reflection.

Lalo – Your memory will be for a blessing. ❤

Lalo Telling
Blessing be for a memory

Published by


There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!

  1. For Lalo – Go with God.

    Yitgadal v’yitkadash sh’mei raba b’alma di-v’ra

    chirutei, v’yamlich malchutei b’chayeichon

    uvyomeichon uvchayei d’chol beit yisrael, ba’agala

    uvizman kariv, v’im’ru: “amen.”

    Y’hei sh’mei raba m’varach l’alam ul’almei almaya.

    Yitbarach v’yishtabach, v’yitpa’ar v’yitromam

    v’yitnaseh, v’yithadar v’yit’aleh v’yit’halal sh’mei

    d’kud’sha, b’rich hu,

    l’eila min-kol-birchata v’shirata, tushb’chata

    v’nechemata da’amiran b’alma, v’im’ru: “amen.”

    Y’hei shlama raba min-sh’maya v’chayim aleinu

    v’al-kol-yisrael, v’im’ru: “amen.”

    Oseh shalom bimromav, hu ya’aseh shalom aleinu

    v’al kol-yisrael, v’imru: “amen.”

  2. All can do is send up a quiet “Lalo, thank you for being you, for us, with us. You *mattered*”.

  3. Shalom dear Lalo. The few months that I knew you brought you very close. Your kindness, your generosity and the love of your home on Takamaka made you a very special person – now may you find the peace you deserve. You are in the place where there will be no more pain and no more tears.

    Loving hugs to Emspar and to all his friends.

  4. A new journey has started
    Among many who were friends
    And for the one who has departed
    Left us with inspiring trends

  5. I only knew Lalo through Twitter, but his light beamed brightly through his tweets and blog. My condolences to those who knew and loved him. He will be missed.

  6. I met Lalo a few times in both SL and IW but mostly knew him through his blog. His joy in exploring SL and its history was a joy to read. I am saddened to learn of his death, SL has lost one of its true leading lights. My sympaties to his family in both RL and SL. Namaste, Lalo.

  7. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your blog. It appears as though some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Appreciate it
