    Sad News

    What with Inferno hospitalized and struggling, it is with great regret that I must inform DP of the passing of one of our long time veteran posters. cherokee has died.

    Some of you know that cherokee had suffered a severe diving accident about two years ago. Apparently, that accident caused a cerebral (berry) aneurysm which, from what cherokee told me, was mostly inoperable...or if it was, there was a near 100% of death during the operation. cherokee opted to not take the risk and to live his remaining days to their fullest...ballooning, fishing, and travelling. He and I had been DP friends since I came to DP; about 3 months ago, when he told me what was happening, he let me know that he had mentioned me in his will, and that when he died, someone was to log on as him and PM me that he had passed away. I received the PM at 1 AM this morning.

    cherokee will always be remembered here as a staunch defender of the military. He was also a fearless defender of his friends here at DP. If someone messed with or insulted a friend of his, you could be sure that he would slam them. He was also very quick with humor, and, when it came to military, Iraq, or ME issues, a very fomidable debater.

    My fondest memory of cherokee is when, jokingly, after a long day of moderation, I gave he and Vader some e-napalm to firebomb the Abortion Forum. They never did, and I haven't seen the e-napalm since. I'd ask him about it every once in a while. I suspect that he hid it somewhere.

    I am keeping cherokee's account open and I would like to encourage folks to post their wishes, memories, and condolences there...as well as here. Let his Visitor Message board stand as a memorial to him. I told the person who contacted me (his nephew) that I would do so. Let me also advise that if ANYONE defaces that board, they will be hit with a 10 point Don't Be A Jerk infraction. I will not take that lightly.

    So...to absent friends. cherokee, always proud of being a Marine.

    Semper Fi.

    See you in the next life, my friend.

    Oh, I feel so sad about this. I hope his wife is okay. This would be one of the worst blows that could happen to me--no matter how much I knew the likelihood of this result. Thanks for the information. I am happy that he did go out there and really live his life. May he rest in peace.

    I offer my condolences to his family and his many friends Here on DP

    What is dying?
    I am standing on the sea shore. A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean. She is an object of beauty and I stand watching her until at last she fades on the horizon, and someone at my side says, 'She is gone' Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says, 'she is gone' there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up the glad shout, 'there she comes' - that is dying.
