  1. For my good friend Keith. The words are not mine, but the sentiment fits.

    There is an empty chair,
    at the table this day.
    A hallowed place where,
    a friend once played.
    The roll of his dice,
    my ears long to hear.
    Or perhaps it would suffice,
    if he should suddenly appear.
    With character sheet in hand,
    and a bag of Cheeze-doodles to share.
    All his friends would stand,
    as he sat in the empty chair.
    I hear his voice a-callin’,
    and it ties my heart in a knot.
    For he cries, “Though a comrade has fallen,
    You must play for those who cannot.”
    We conquered worlds on the run,
    he and I in the name of fun.
    And as others may come and go,
    I make both both friend and foe.
    But what I long for most,
    is our past now long a ghost.

  12. Though I was never blessed to meet him in person, his kindness, goodness and never failing sense of humor shined through. He was Brother Heavy whose patience was an inspiration in his real life as in his fantasy life. Rest in peace and keep baking for the angels.

  13. I knew Keith by his online name but even in that world you knew he was something special. I heard his voice and I couldn’t help but like him then I got to know him and really liked him. The privilege of knowing him is worth this pain in losing him.

  14. I knew Keith by his online name too, but talking with him, conversing on voice with him, he had to be one of the best guys I ever knew, the world is truly a darker place without him. He was the embodiment of kindness, inspiration, caring. We will all truly miss him, now and forever.
