Two deaths in one day

In a matter of a couple of hours, we have learned about the passing of two friends: Nefarious from South Carolina and Daddy Jim Raymond from Washington, DC.

I met Nefarious at South East Leather Fest in 2009. I was one of his judges. Through the years we have coincided in events like SELF, the Leather History Conference and South Plains Leatherfest. We always had good conversations being the last one two months ago during LHC in North Carolina. He was only 46, too young to die.

Jim Raymond is a friend or more than 20 years. I met him at the DC Eagle, when he was the Dungeon Master there, and learned my basic skills on flogging by carefully watching him flogging boys at the DC Eagle. He lost his fight with diabetes.
