My friend Lesley Andrews, Car Lane in Second Life, contacted me inworld, asking me to make a machinima to help her explain her approaching death, to her grandchild. A braintumour is not something one easily explains to a 3 year old, and what is death?
Truelie Telling composed and performed a special song for Lesley. What can you do or say, there is no comfort.
Lesley touched our lives, and a virtual part of her will live forever on the internet.

petroculiar meningiomas is the harsh reality that struck my friend.

Nothing one can do. No words to be found. Say it aint so....
The one small thing her friends could do is create a song and machinima for her, based on the words that were spoken by Lesley as we filmed in Secondlife on Oktober 5 and 6, 2009:

"Its ok I am at peace now, my future is certain.
I tried to tell my grandchild about death, we planted an apple seed and I said when that tree grows, u can climb it and speak to nanny. She frowned said why u gonna be up a tree God love her.
Wanna tell I am gonna be a star angel watching her.
When I was a girl I had a secret
I knew I could fly but all the adults told me I must be dreaming
But inside my head I always flew
Anyway God had a job for me to be a star angel so I could fly around the sky all night until morning came and visit anywhere I wanted without planes or tickets.
This is heart wrenching ya know its real hard to talk about even in machinima.
Anyway tell Poppy tell Bonnie that I am in the sky to the north, and if she closes her eyes very tight and thinks of me, I will hear her :)"

Truelie Tellings moving song "Goodbye" :

Say it aint so, say it aint so
I wish I could, but this is my road
Time moves so fast, sorrow moves slow
I wish I could stay, I gotta go

Goodbye thats The Hardest Part
You and I angel child, its getting dark
We cry heart to heart
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye T
hats The Hardest Part

Im facing fate, death does not wait
But look at my face, I am not afraid
No regrets, no regrets, but never forget
The love that I give you, the love that we made

Goodbye thats The Hardest Part
You and I angel child, its getting dark
We cry heart to heart
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Thats The Hardest Part

I rest in peace, my race is done
Your place is here, we ve just begun
Angels cry, till their wings come
I fly, I fly, I fly

Goodbye thats The Hardest Part
You and I angel child, its getting dark
We cry heart to heart
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
