Kasi

Thank you so much for this, Hamlet. He is and will always be desperately missed.

Fleabite

Great piece :)

Juro

I'm gonna miss you, Siggy! He was just about the best straight-guy-friend that a gay guy could ask for: smart, funny, willing to call you on your BS and willing to stand up for others. I remember one of my early experiences with Siggy was when I had built a replica of the Sears Tower in Stillman (much to the dismay of my neighbors!) and Siggy pulled out a miniature convertible car and we spent a good amount of time trying to drive up the side of the tower - laughing our butts off the entire way. He left a mark on those around him that they will cherish. <3 - juro kothari

You were a true Gothika treasure, Siggy. Blunt. A smartass, and one of our Misfits (even if we stole Kasi early on). Port Seraphine will be missing a genie.

Lecktor Hannibal

A very touching tribute to such a wonderful friend and person. So glad for the memories made.

Baccara Rhodes

What an amazing tribute. All of us have such special memories in SL as well as in RL. Siggy was a presence; he took over the room and everyone was happy to let him do so.
I hope that tomorrow many of the SL “Pioneers”;will be there to wish him a gentle journey to whatever may come next.
Much love, Baccara

He had a pretty comfortable relationship with Linden Water as well - most of us merely crash into it and fly/swim out, some of us sail, but Siggy was perhaps the one guy in SL who embraced the idea of actually swimming in proper ground-level water, to the point of even inventing a great HUD for swimming with. That has saved me an endless tonne of frustration when dealing with deep waters on no-fly/swim parcels.

In an era where so many people are now more keen on living in the sky and switching to fake prims for swimming in, Siggy was a great guy for reminding folks just what one could do in the realest water SL ever had.

I haven't encountered him in twelve or thirteen years, but I still have the warmest memories of Siggy. He was a good person; that came right through the avatar. He was also a nut and a genius at just creating fun shit that everyone could enjoy. We had a couple of really deep conversations and I like to think that we were friends. I've also got to agree with Juro, Siggy was pretty wise, for a straight guy. Nephilaine was, of course my go to fashion source, maybe more of a fashion fetish, way back when we had twenty sims and knew how to use them. I've heard that grief never diminishes, no matter how much its shared. I've always that that was bullshit. I hope so anyways.
