I had a very good friend pass away recently. She passed away on Sunday, October 20th but I didn’t find out until Tuesday, October 22nd. Needless to say I haven’t been myself.
Her name was Roxy B. Montoya. We had been friends since 2004 I believe, we met online on a graffiti art forum then became closer friends on MySpace. Then we met in real life in 2006 and we have been best friends ever since. I would go to Las Vegas where she lived to support her art shows, she would come out here with her family to go to Disneyland and also show her art here in LA with her husband Albert.
I miss her terribly. She was only 36 years old and so her death was quite unexpected.
I’m just writing this for myself. To express gratitude for having such an amazing friend. She was loved by everybody, people who have never met Roxy in real life call her their “favorite internet friend”.
I have collected a lot of her art, which I still have.
Here’s an IG story she did for my 2018 birthday & I reposted it:
Dude, I’m missing you a ton. Everyone is. You made everyone feel so special.💔
