    The five year anniversary of Jim's death made me think about how he had impacted my life, and what he meant to me- while I posted that on dragonmount when he passed, I was curious if there was a section somewhere on Tar Valon that had to do with just how he had impacted the lives of his readers, especially those whom he moved enough to find and join a community like this.

    Was there maybe a thread on the old forums that cataloged this, or an article that ran in the times? Or is there a permanent section of the site somewhere that does? If not, could there be?

    If nothing else, it would be nice for those who survive him to be able to remember him through not only his works, but in the difference that he made in the lives of those around him. Whether that was to a student he taught, or by someone who read his books in a time where they really needed a pick me up, as I did.

    Exactly it- thank you, Kitan Sedai.

    Though I am curious if people may add to it?

    You're welcome, Ty!

    Hmm, I don't know whether people can add to it - I'm not sure even who to ask about that, actually! I'll try pointing some likely people in the direction of this thread to try and find out :)

    For contributing to the library pages, I would contact Toral (library@tarvalon.net), but for now, please feel free to comment on the other link Kitan provided :D

    That's the post that had me curious about something more permanent :D

    Thank you!
