Grace McDunnough performs at the Prop Spinners Pub

Prop Spinners Pub owners Thadicus Caligari and Katrina Pugilist from the Royal Caledon Air Force lost a dear friend Lara Lahane to cancer recently and graciously setup a major event in honor of her and SLRFL on Sunday May 4th. I was happy to discover that a mutual friend Grace McDunnough was to perform during the 5 PM hour, so I made every effort to be there. My connection to Grace has been through the SLBloggers, Twitter, Malburns Writer's Second Spaces Videocast Metaverse Week in Review and through various encounters at metaverse related events. I'm embarrassed to say, this was only the second time I've heard her sing and she was indeed wonderful. She is full of fun, humor, and true to her name, a graceful lady.







For the record, here is the notecard about the event...

You are personally invited to join me (Thadicus Caligari) in a celebration of friendship and love of music.

This event is a Tribute to my close friend Lara Lahane ( her SL avatar name). Lara died mid January 2008 from leukemia. Lara had a husband and three kids that survive her. Lara was a avid gamer, she and I played There.com, Star Wars Galaxies, and SL together. She also played WoW and other fantasy based games.

Lara and I came to SL together with several other friends who were There.com players. Lara would come from time to but was not a regular in Second Life. Lara had fought leukema many years ago and had been remissed for 6 years when it was found again a year and a half ago.

Lara loved music, mostly popular and classic rock. She would come visit and join myself and our common friend Sidney Therian at various music oriented events in SL.
