Oh gosh Khory, I don’t know what to say.  I’ve been a fan of your products for quite some time, and the few times I “saw” Simon here on the forums he seemed like such a nice sort.  The two of you seemed to have a good partnership, and I know you’re going to miss him dearly.  So will we all.  My condolences to you and both your families.

Khory - 03 September 2012 11:54 PM

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.

Have already communicated with you on your site, but wanted to add my thoughts here, too.  It’s never easy losing someone you care about and I know well that when it’s unexpected, that adds one more factor to the pain of loss.

My heart is with you and my condolences to all of Simon’s family and friend.

Again, thank you all. I have heard from and written back to both of Simon’s parents today. I know that the kind remembrances and condolences mean as much to them as they do to me.

I finally have a chance to log into my home PC and give my condolences, both to yourself and his family.  I’ve enjoyed the items your partnership created for a few years now, and am saddened to see it end in this way.  His absence will leave a hole in this community.  Simon will truly be missed.
