Palomma Casanova – Rest In Peace

Palomma Casanova RIP

Palomma Casanova was a remarkable lady in Second Life. The Free Dove was her baby, her project, the way she reached out to help everyone. It really was a labour of love, I know from our conversations how much she toiled over it. When I heard she had passed away I was really shocked and saddened. Palomma had never mentioned that she was sick, never moaned or complained. Always upbeat, forever forging on with her plans inworld.

I will copy here a notecard that has been given out for your information.

“Hello dear friends of Palomma,

It is with great sadness and pain that I have to announce you that Palomma Casanova left us on Saturday January 14 after a long illness. This is a shock to me and a huge loss. She fought her illness with all the energy she had and endured the pain very bravely. Her passion for her work and for helping others was admirable.

For almost 12 years, this kind, generous and talented woman was by my side day after day. She will be missed by all of us who had the chance to know her. May she rest peacefully with all my love.–

About Free Dove

When the subject of her eventual departure was brought up, Palomma’s response was that Free Dove would POOOOF when it was over for her. Free Dove was her baby, the vehicle that allowed her to express her love of people and her willingness to help them, but she didn’t want it to outlive her. She had created Free Dove in 2006 and when she left, her group had reached nearly 150,000 members, a rare achievement. We will remember her as the generous woman who dedicated 17 years of her life to SL citizens.

I have no idea when Free Dove will disappear. In the meantime, I have blocked all payment boxes for Free Dove shops, I am unable to refund your last payments, but your shops can remain in place until the end comes.

Regarding Christmas trees and Christmas gifts, I will be returning them this Wednesday because the holiday season is over. As for last month’s HUNTs panels, I will try to change the textures and replace them with an image to pay homage to Palomma.

Concerning the “Free Dove” group, you will retain the ability to send notices as long as the building exists, but please don’t abuse and follow Palomma’s rules. The day the building disappears, I will remove the ability to send notices to all.

As for creators’ gifts and the prims belonging to other people, they will all be returned the day the land is abandoned.

Thank you for taking the time to read me.”

Rest In Peace ❤

You Wont Believe Where These Free Gifts Are From !

FREE Dress & Boots

Free definitely doesn’t mean inferior quality! I’m a big big fan of The Free Dove – always something new to look at and of course – its all free. Just join the group and away you go, click and grab . I went over for a snoop and found the following two complete out fits from Le’La. The only thing in the photo above that isn’t included is the little red shrug that I bought from Blonde Queen @ the weekend. You also get a Hud with further colour choices for the boots and the dress.

FREE Dress & Boots with colour Hud

The second item I nabbed is this dress & lace boots. Ill admit that I haven’t kept the dresses (as I have farrr too many!) but have kept both pairs of boots – so hand and so lovely. I also took the third item Le’La has out which is a pair of patent leather ankle boots in several colours – brilliant & stylish. I have given the landmark to entrance A below – turn right and head into the store, the Le’La counter is there.
