    I woke up yesterday morning and this morning thinking about them both.
    And now just saw this.

    I am so very very sorry, Randah. :(

    Marty was one of the first people we met at our first JordanCon (before I even became a TV.Net member) ... Sad to see him go. RIP George.

    I am so sorry, Randah.

    I sang this song at a funeral, and people seemed to draw comfort from it (song is partially quoted):


    "There are no words for times like these
    When tears don't hide the tragedies
    And all we want is a reason for the world.

    There's no comfort in a greeting card
    'Cause God is good but life's still hard,
    And your heart just wants a reason for the world.

    Maybe the reason for the pain is so that we would pray for strength
    And maybe the reason for the strength is so that we would not lose hope
    And maybe the reason for our hope is so that we can face the world
    And the reason for the world
    Is to make us long for home.

    I know you're past the point of broken, surrounded by your tears
    And I know your feet are tired and weary from the road that you've walked out here
    But just keep your eyes on heaven and know that you are not alone.
    Remember the reason for the world.

    No ear has heard
    No eye has seen
    Not even in your wildest dreams
    The beauty that awaits beyond this world.
    When you look into the eyes of grace
    And hear the voice of mercy say
    "Child, welcome to the reason for the world."

    Sorrow bends our heads,
    but we are not dead.
    Memories wash over us,
    but will not get the best of us.
    To live is to honour,
    with laughter and candor,
    those that nurtured us,
    with such care and devotion.
    Weep for the one lost to sight,
    as is right,
    but remember to honour
    a life with life.

    It's clumsy at best, Lori, but it's from my heart. I hope to remind you through all of your pain that you still live, are loved, and we will always wish you the best.

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. I haven't been very active in a while, but I remember Martele. Given my inactivity, I didn't know anything was wrong. And, y'know, you always just kinda assume everyone will be there when you get back. You will be missed Martele Gaidin. A howl for you. My condolences Randah.
