Lorivonne Lustre/Lorraine Mockford of VWBPE Has Died

Some sad news for the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education (VWBPE) group in Second Life. Lorivonne Lustre, also known as Lorraine Mockford or just LV, has passed away.
 On Friday, February 2, 2024, Lorraine Mockford (LV / Lorivonne Lustre) passed away. Lorraine has blessed the educational community and numerous charitable organizations within Second Life for over 17 years. Her involvement in Second Life and Open Simulator extended to numerous organizations including Virtual Abilities Inc., Nonprofit Commons, SL Midwives, and Rockcliffe University Consortium, which runs the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference. 

Lorraine was part of the original organizing committee for the Second Life Best Practices in Education conference in 2007. Since 2009, she has been an instrumental Director of the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education including Communications and Programs.

We are all saddened by the loss of a beautiful soul that was taken far too soon.

More information from the family and an in-world celebration of life will be coming soon.

There will be an open memorial to LV on Thursday February 8 at Rockcliffe Village. It will take place at 11 AM and again at 5PM. (181/157/1728). The event is organized by the VWBPE Organizational Committee.
