In Passing: Arabella Cinquetti, Kei Haru Paws

Sadly, just as death is a part of life, there comes a day when residents of this virtual world go on to "Third Life." And the Newser recently heard about two residents who sadly met their end.
A reliable source recently told the Newser that Arabella Cinquetti, the owner of Lightening Video, had recently passed away. She had gotten the news via a notecard next to her store.

It is with sad news that I share with you all the passing of Arabella Cinquetti, owner of Lightening Video. Ara passes awat surrounded by family. She had been sick for a long time, but her heart couldn't take it any more. She will be missed here in Second Life.
The store and the sim were closed on March 15. As to what this means for the store's videos, the servers remain up, but only for a little longer. They are due to close on April 10. For theaters and home theaters with her products, it is unclear what will happen. They may no longer work, or continue to do so until they eventually break.

The Newser was also informed Kei Haru Paws (dante184) had passed away. The cause of death was cancer. He was 31 years old.

Earlier this month, the Newser reported on the passing of Sylys Sable. He would have a memorial service done in real life, a video of which was made available (click here).

While not a Second Life resident, Draxtor Despress mentioned the passing of someone who had been on SL media. He recently stated that science-fiction writer Vernor Vinge had passed away. Vinge had appeared on Drax's radio show "The Drax Files" in March 2016 to discuss his sci-fi novel "Rainbow's End," in which cyperspace and virtual reality figure prominently. 
 Rest in peace
