How very thoughtful of his wife to ask you to post, esp at such a difficult time for her. Please thank her for her consideration.
Perhaps when someone loved passes away it is best to remember that they are completely safe now and nothing can ever hurt or frighten them again. Its how I like to think of loved ones I have lost. Somewhere protected, where I can think of them with love.
“I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.”
I totally agree. I was thinking of him only yesterday when I said to Junkyard “My knowledge of Marx is very far from great (I’m sure many on here have a much better knowledge)” Jahwomble was the person who came straight into my mind – he had read Das Capital. That, and all the other stuff he posted on here, made him a genius as far as I’m concerned. Very very clever man. And I will really miss him, although I know he will no longer feel the pain he felt. RIP Jahwomble 🙁
That is such sad, sad news and reading that sent a jolt through me. Please pass on my regards to his family and I hope that they may get some small comfort from the fact that he was obviously well liked on here.
