Ya Gotta Go Your Own Way

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 16, 2016, 5:09 AM

Hello.  This is not Damien.  I’m his friend and next door neighbor.  He requested that I publish a journal to his DeviantArt account on his behalf.  He also instructed me not to pussy foot around the topic.  

A few weeks ago, Damien went to sleep and did not wake up in the morning.  There was no funeral, nor a service.  He was cremated and his ashes mixed with his dogs.  The combined remains were given to his niece.

Without getting sappy, I’d like to say a few words before leaving because I haven’t really had the opportunity to say just how wonderful he was to anyone other than his closest relatives.  Damien was, by far, one of the best people I knew.  He always had a kind compliment, a story of outrageous shenanigans, a listening ear, and a glass of whiskey.  You could count on him for anything and he’d drop everything to help someone out.

I miss him terribly, and hated holding this information back from his friends here on DeviantArt, but it was his request that I wait until today to post the news.  He died as he lived; peacefully and on his own terms.

I was going through some old lit stuff & it kinda brought back memories of some our old conversations.

Some folks have continued carryin out your group work on here; you'd be proud of how well they work together. Your Princess must miss you a ton still.

This still feels very weird even now. If there's an afterlife, hope you're having a good time there, dude.
