Sometimes there is someone who starts something that you become a part of. Like minded people join. They become more than just like minded people, some become your family. Shannon Larratt, the founder of BMEzine.com, has passed away. He and I were not close although we had met several times. He was a pioneer in something that has shaped my life for the better every day since I joined his community. You can find more information about Shannon on Needles and Sins or Sacred Debris. The majority of the people who are close to me now I have met in some form or another through his site. It is a terrible loss and my heart goes out to his family.
Shannon Larratt (1973-2013)
