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 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.

It's hard to believe it's August already. :| (Blank Stare)

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:

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:

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.

You will be missed my friend.
