I wasn't sure whether to post this or not. However, some BCBers have expressed their sympathy on Facebook which I greatly appreciate.
My sister, Alison, died yesterday at the terribly young age of 47. She had fought a brave fight against circulatory problems for the last few years. Nevertheless, this has come as a great shock to me and my family.

i'm so very sorry, ian. i send you and yers all the love and wishes for peace kathishly possible. i think i've made it pretty clear what my core philosophy is on such things, but the truth is... as everyone fucquin knows... gettin yer heart harrowed by the loss of a beluvved one never gets easier, softer, less... harrowing. mind ya, it's also proof that that heart comes from a loving, caring person, and ya know damn well yer sister understood that, through all things. that right there is the core of it all, ya know. love, completely irrelevant to time and its effects. you, sir, are a fantastically groovy, kind-hearted and noble ogre. i know people think i'm crazy when i say this kinda shit (and since i'm crazy, i really don't give a damn if anyone thinks i'm crazy), but if you ask me, her knowin it never stops, in the only reality that counts.
i said this during the stormwatch listen... this song is the candle i leave in my window in the middle of a wintry night for all my beluvveds who've moved on. i will always be home for them, the candle will always burn for them. amor omnia vincit.
i got ears, any time. two of em, even. (you might wanna wait til after the dental surgery tomorrow, though. i make even less sense when i'm on anaesthesia.)
Difficult to add anything to the sympathies already expressed, which I'll simply echo. Lean on us if you need to or ignore us if you're needed elsewhere. We'll be here, progging along, awaiting your return.
