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!

Every day without you is another heartache to face.

I'd leave flowers at your grave if I could, but I hope you're resting well all the same.

I don't know you in person or, until I had read the poem by AyeAye12 , that you were a part of the dA community (and it seems that you had been for a longer time than I).

May you be granted the fruits of Paradise, which I'm sure you will. With the comments alone that I've read here in your comment box, and also seeing your journal right now (the one on Feb 26), it seems also, that you were a very brave person - braver, in retrospect, because most of the comments which I've also read indicate that you had indescribable energy which poured out even through thick and thin.

Again, I don't know you in person or on dA that well, but I believe that good people will always be granted their just reward of a place in Paradise, where they will be given closure - and that their families, for what its worth, will be protected and taken care of by them spiritually. (My heartfelt condolences to the family. You people are brave).

Alone, in the night, when our loved ones cried
A voice was heard, so gently did it sigh
"I will protect you, that is my promise."
An image did come: you, when you oft smiled

Its not my best work, but I suppose it would be the closest I can get to concluding what I want to say.

May you rest in piece, Ron.

Sorry you're leaving Unum Veritas. I guess the group isn't what we might have hoped it woukd. I've tried to keep to the spirit of it but I rarely work explicilty with text and imagery together. The title is often the important piece of 'Text', or I might link to something approproiate. I'm sure the group will miss you.
