Apotheosis has left us and this world.
Been rolling it around in my head all night how to say this and share it with you all and I’m finding it so difficult to find the words. I spoke with his sister for quite awhile yesterday and got to tell her the kind of people that we were and the incredible people that her brother was associated with. This is why it’s so important to me that you all know how much you all are loved and how important you all are in my life…and the lives of others…
all I ever wanted was for him to be surrounded by people who “got him”
That he was gives ME some peace as well.
We are such a very special group of people. Apotheosis was a fine upstanding and good good man who loved his family, his country and stood for his principles without wavering. The world is a better place for his existence and influence. It was an honor for me to give him this platform…and for him to accept it from me.
Doug says it so eloquently….
I am so sorry to learn of *******’s passing.
No, I never met him in person. Never felt I needed to, although I’m positive I would have enjoyed that.
To me, ******* was Apotheosis — “Apo” to his many friends and admirers at SondraKistan.com — and I count myself as one of them. He and I were the two guys (plus three women) who posted the articles containing our thoughts, ideas, rants, interesting tidbits, fun stories, and commentaries whenever the mood struck. We call it The Porch, for that was what it is.
******* was the gentleman of the group: clear in his thinking, lucid in his writing, “correct” in his philosophy, and entertaining in his presentation. I don’t remember finding fault in anything he ever wrote or commented upon (disagreement, perhaps, but never fault), not even in his spelling or punctuation, certainly not in the character of his on-line persona.
I know it’s not like missing *******, the family member, personally; but Apo will be missed by me and who knows how many others who never met him across the country and in foreign lands.
Please accept my condolences.
His passing leaves a very sad silence.
