It seems I'm lost. I can't seem to find the Forest in the trees. With such a bright light extinguished, it seems that the world is a much more dull place to be. The pointless call to "Please come back" echoes in the chasm that cannot summon back such a beautiful soul from the expansion that they were destined to become. DeviantArt won't be the same without you, and it seems that the world has been overcome with an overwhelming emptiness for those of us who had the privilege of basking in your radiance while you were here.
The beautiful, unique, inspiring creations reflect their creator, and will live on eternally as a constant reminder for generations to come of the spark that burned so brightly, and left such an impact on so many.
Thanks so much. You know I really thought it would be getting easier by now, but it really isn't easing off as much as I hoped. It's been 3 months now, and I still miss him every day. However, lovely people such as yourself and others who take the time to comment, and chat really brighten up my day though, so thanks very much.
I am far from pure. most likely one of the biggest offenders of our Savior and King Jesus Christ. but we do all have our guardian angels and mine tries to keep me on the right path. hopefully i'll get there.
Thanks so much. I completely understand. I miss him terribly too, and I also go to his page every evening to say hello, and to see the other lovely comments from other lovely artists like yourself. I guess I thought it would be getting easier by now, but it isn't really.
That's so nice of you. The Premium Membership is nice because you can see the visitors, but I really hope that even if they decide not to renew the PM, that they at least leave his page up. His page really has a peaceful atmosphere, and it's nice to have a place to go to remember him. But I can also understand if they choose not to.
Then he can come back and give out to me then!! Oh right... it doesn't work that way. I wouldn't actually wish anyone back to this life, and I'm genuinely glad he's happy and at peace, but it's difficult to be left behind. Maybe in time I won't feel sad anymore. Thanks though. I know you mean it, and I truly appreciate it.
As I said over on his page, "may he dwell happily by the wee folk forever"
We may be sad by his passing now but the light he brought to our eyes through his art will always stay.
To his family I say this: "Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather, openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. - Unknown"
Yeah he's definitely with the Wee folk now, and probably causing all sorts of mischief!!! No coincidence his passing occurred on the Fairy festival of the Winter Solstice! I'm not worried for him at all, but it's just hard for those he's left behind
Beautiful words, bless you I am still in shock, I can't believe it. He brightened my day, lifted me when I was down, made me laugh, He was dear sweet kind John. I only knew him for a short time, but he touched my heart in a big way, now there is a big empty space. He will be greatly missed. I hope he is at peace, happy dancing with the wee folk.
Thanks so much. I completely understand, and a agree. Me too.
I'm sure he's at peace... or at least as much peace as a mischievous Sidhe can allow themselves to be at peace, as they tend to like a bit of chaos! Next time you find your shoe laces in an unopenable knot you'll know who did it!!!
I'm not worried about him, but it's hard for those of us who's lives are a little more dull with his absence.
