My words From the 2006 Memorial...
Have Fun... Be Happy...Be Kind.
These are the words as I found them written by him in his character profile.
A simple philosophy of life from a kind soul who by his actions
and the countless hours of dedication to his fellow man,
left a mark in two worlds.
That mark is not easily forgotten by those of us who had the privilege of his
company however brief or long..
By many who did not meet him but used his rune library to explore Sosaria.
This beach where we are standing, reverberates with his presence.
It is here where our memories are strongest.
It is here where most of us met him.
This place where he built his beloved rune library that opened doors for us
to places we could only imagine.
It is here most of us came to explore the world of Britannia
while he patiently waited for us to return to tell him stories of our adventures.
It is here where he took the time to teach many of us the ways of the world,
to give a word of encouragement, or to give whatever he had that would
in some way brighten our day.
He loved this world..
he lived to help people, friends & strangers alike.
He was immensely proud of his library.
This kind soul vanished from our world one year ago today.
A great light in our world has gone.
The sadness we feel has not diminished with the passing of time..
But perhaps by coming here today and filling this special
place with the radiance of light...
perhaps we can make him see that we miss him
more than words or tears can express..
If you can see dearest friend
we will always remember you
we will always love you
and we will keep faith with your words..
Have fun.. be happy.. be kind.
This will be the final Service & marks the 10th Anniversary. Every one is welcome to come say a few words for Goodman or a departed Loved One after the Special Main Speaker as always.
