Journal Entry: Thu Feb 26, 2015, 11:15 AM
Most of you know that I have some health problems, but I've decided not to let it get me down. We all have problems throughout life; personal, family, financial... a host of different types of problems. We plow through them until we reach the other side. That's what I'm going to do. No whining or bitching and moaning... every day is a gift, and I'm going to use these gifts to try and do something positive with them. :)

Thank you all for being here. That's why I've stayed on this site for ten years; the good, kind people who inhabit it and give it a real sense of community. Thanks, my friends!

I've just dropped by after being away from deviantart for ages and I'm so sad to hear the news. You were such a great encouragement to me with my writing and photography. I'm sorry I didn't get to tell you just how much your comments on my writing meant to me. I will miss seeing new artwork and writing from you. You were so talented and creative. Rest in Peace my friend.

Wow... I'm floored right now.. :(

I just did my usual drop by, to say hello, and I am too late....
It was too long between visits this time, my friend.

Wherever you may be, I hope you are pain free, and with a smile on your face.

Always in my heart Ron :heart:

I just heard the news, Ron. I guess I was away a little too long this time. God speed to you on your next journey, may it be easier than the last. Goodbye friend.

I've kept your last message to me in my in box. It seems to mean so much more to me now than it was originally intended. I miss your comments and encouragement. You had no idea how much it all meant to me.

I will miss you, my friend. The world lost a great man. It isn't fair.

only July, and here I am, nostalgic again.

I hope you're resting well.

Dear friend, it hasn't been that long since I found out you'd passed on to whatever comes next. I've kept your last message to me in my watch and still I've not finished the work it was about. Your words"Not If, When" will remain there to remind me to keep working and doing what I've loved these past twelve years and never give up or quit. I'll never forget you. Even if I never got to meet you in the flesh as they say I have counted you among my closest friends. Rest well, dear friend. You've earned it. :hug:

Thank you for being my friend till the end.

I cannot believe I did not know until just now, and I feel SOOO terrible.

You were always such a sweet person in my inbox and I deeply regret not responding the way I would as a new friend because heck, life. And yours is gone and I'm still letting that sink in.

May the blessings fill you with happiness and may you find peace wherever you may lie. :huggle: :heart:
