A post, Bringing Back the Xanga Dead
,by the famous Xangan, TheTheologiansCafe
, made me think of an old friend who passed away. Please visit the site of JStickmann and honor his memory.As many of you have already heard, our friend John E. Pfeiffer, known better to us as "jstickmann" passed away Dec 13th 2009. Read the original post by his brother . Stick, as I thought of him, would have found all the drama about Dan's post morbidly humorous, and would not have condemned Dan, I suspect, although I don't think it's something Stick himself would post. He cared too much about people for that, or seemed to, during the time I was acquainted with him.
I have considered Stick a friend since he and I and RestlesButterfly met through a joke she and I were playing. We had a few people believing that we both ate human fetuses, and they were horrified. Finally, after about 30 minutes, we let Stick in on the fun. What an incredible talent for art and words, and a beautiful mind, he possessed. I feel this loss very deeply, indeed. The world is a lesser place for his absence. I hope he finds whatever paradise it is he believed in.
P.S.- This will undoubtedly be time-stamped a number of times, and I don't give a DAMN if anybody doesn't like it.
