I have lost a friend. The world has lost a voice.

This kind man was my friend for many, many years. We met back in the days of the Xena forum and a friendship slowly formed. It wasn't always smooth, in fact, it got really rough for a brief moment, but he was a good man who owned up to his mistakes and came out the other side a great friend to many of us.

He was my friend, and in my inbox is his last message to me. It is full of laughter and silly remarks, touched by an underlying sadness. He was not in the best of health, but he always tried to lighten the seriousness of it all. In that, he and I were kindred spirits. If we could joke it away, we did. I would bet that his last words were to tell everyone some silly, crazy, laughter inducing story. Get that last laugh before the curtain came down.

He was in a lot of pain and now he's not, but now I am. We knew each other for 24 years, and I can't believe I will never be able to joke with him again.

Rest gently, yadda. Posted Image My condolences to your lovely wife and your family. Posted Image

I want a job in HRC's "shadow" cabinet. Good pay, really easy hours, lots of time off. Can't go wrong.

Let me strive every moment of my life to make myself better and better, to the best of my ability, so that all may profit by it.
Let me think of the right and lend my assistance to all who may need it, with no regard for anything but justice.
Let me take what comes with a smile, without loss of courage.
Let me be considerate of my country, of my fellow citizens, and my associates in everything I say and do.
Let me do right to all, and wrong no man.

Few people want to be moderated, most people see the need for everyone else to be moderated. -- Orpheus

RIP yadda yadda.
