I don't know how many of the old guard still haunt these halls? But we lost one of our founding members and former fellow global moderator's knightone recently. He was, and will always be my friend. So I think it is only fitting that a quote from TWOK to mark his passing.
"We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted, in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most...human."
