    Hello, my family- I've tried to think about what to say here, and it all just kind of jumbles together, so pardon the potential rambliness.

    Jaim passed away Thursday, February 28th, after an all too short but fierce battle with bile duct cancer. We told very few people at all, as at the beginning we were very hopeful about treatment, and even at the end we hung on until the Creator called him home.

    Jim and I recently celebrated 12 years married on the 17th, and found each other through the Tower, which has been our other home for even longer. We have three beautiful daughters who remind me that love is still possible even when times are darkest. I see his smile, his laugh, and his immeasurable heart in all of them, and they make me proud.

    For those that have inquired, his memorial is Thursday evening (3/7) at 7pm, so if you feel so inclined, think good thoughts or maybe raise a glass of whatever you like in his honor- he loved this community (especially spamming it) and I will always be grateful for the love it has shown us in return.

    Be kind to each other- hold your loved ones close and be grateful for every day you have with them, as life is unpredictable and fleeting. I love you all.

    My heart goes out to you and your babes.
    Cancer is such a terribly difficult battle for all involved.
    I lost my own Mum to cancer 8 years ago now.
    You will be so strongly in my heart, dear Sister.

    May he find peace in the Creator’s embrace

    First of all # fuckcancer
    Second Liz I can't imagine how this feels. Third I can't believe that lovable man is gone.

    Finally, if I haven't told any of you how much you all mean to me, I love y'all <3

    I'm so sorry.

    I only met him recently, at Anni 2018 and Fall Ball, 2018. He was funny and kind and welcoming. I brought my girlfriend to Fall Ball, and (like everyone else), he was kind and welcoming to her, too.

    She wanted to express her sorrow at learning this, as well.

    He is already missed.

    If you need anything we can do from here, please don't hesitate to ask.

    May you shelter in the palm of the Creator's hand, and may the last embrace of the mother welcome you home, Jim.

    He will be greatly missed. All my love and prayers for you and your family Liz from Jim's second favorite Saskie.

    It saddens me very deeply to hear this, and my thoughts and prayers go out to all who knew and loved him, especially his family. I didn't know him like many of you did, and had hoped to meet him. I am aware of how much Jaim has contributed to the community and I know our community here won't be the same without him.

    Love and peace be with you and yours, @Lireina ni Dormerus t'al`Bearach

    I've lost so many friends and family in recent years to cancer. I wish it didn't have to be so.

    May the Creator shelter him.

    I didn't know him very well, but he knew how to restart any dead thread, and he must be the only person who can say so much with a single word.

    Indeed.
