Virtual memorial service for a friend

I know this may seem weird, and it was my first time doing this, but I have a friend that passed away on March 26. We belonged to a forum for anxiety. Anyway, the admin and mods coordinated a time in the chatroom to honor her passing ( she was on 38 years old). I must say, it was really nice that so many showed up to the chat room. We did the candle light ceremony, each lit our candles wherever we were, and then a moment of silence, and then nice talks about her, and at the end there was a prayer for her. It was like being in church at a memorial service. We all changed our avitars to butterflies because that was our dear departed friends last one. It was so nice. It shows a community spirit, much like here. I just wanted to share that. Anyway.....
