My best friend and business partner, Simon Vincent aka Si_Vincent, has passed away. I doubt if many people here had ever spoken to him personally as I tended to be the more social face of our twosome. We had been working together as content creators for over 5 years and he was finally coming into his own artistically with his modeling. He had a good eye for realistic modeling and was getting better all the time. I’m glad that he at least was aware that our last product here was doing well. I hope he felt some vindication about sticking with me all these years. It took a fair bit of bravery to start a business with a woman half way around the world, that you have never met in person, and mostly know from gaming.

While I did much of the art part of our business Simon did pretty much everything else. He handled everything for our web site and anything that was even slightly techy. He figured out how to set up our store all by himself and took care of anything related to that. He didn’t have any experience working on web sites before we decided to get one so he had to learn every bit of it from scratch. Not something I think I could ever have done to be honest. And anyone who has ever set up an online store knows how futzy that can be. That alone was something to be proud of.

Simon was brilliant at figuring out things I couldn’t and was always more than willing to help when I just couldn’t get something. Even today I was reading something in a post and thought “I’ll need to ask Simon to help me figure that out later”. I doubt he realized how important that part of things was for me as he tended to underestimate his value. I’m going really miss having him here to help me when I get confused or lost and need sorting out.

Of course what I am really going to miss is my best friend.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. I will pass them on to Simon’s mother. He was an only child and I am sure she is crushed to have lost him so soon.

Jimmy, your right. I don’t think there is anything I have ever been less prepared for. Perhaps I should have been but I simply wasn’t. I needed his help last Tuesday with something and expected him to turn up any minute so he could explain it to me. In fact, there is a part of me that still expects him to and won’t I look foolish about a big mistake like telling people he had passed on.

He was a lovely, thoughtful and very giving person. He always spent weeks before time trying to find the perfect gift to send my son at Christmas for example. I really regret that more people didn’t have an opportunity to know him.

Khory, I am so sorry to hear about this :( I have dealt with Simon on occasion - though not for some time and I enjoyed doing so. This is such a shock.Was it expected?  I always looked on the two of you as a great team each of you contributing your strengths to make an outstanding partnership. .

I know that his family will miss him and I know you will as well.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and his famiily.
