Friends,
As I'm sure you all know, Robert Jordan passed on this Sunday, the 16th of September 2007, at 2:45pm Eastern time. The world is much poorer without him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his surviving family.

I am truly at a loss. I really don't know what to say, other than 'The Light shine on you, and the Creator shelter you, the last embrace of the Mother welcome you home.' Farewall RJ, you will be missed.

-Ryan T. Dean,
Dragonsworn

I read about this an hour or so ago, and was coming her to post it if no one else had. I'll go for the Aiel funeral dirge, here.

Life is a dream -- that knows no shade.
Life is a dream -- of pain and woe.
A dream from which -- we pray to wake.
A dream from which -- we wake and go.

Who would sleep -- when the new dawn waits?
Who would sleep -- when the sweet wind blows?
A dream must end -- when the new day comes.
This dream from which -- we wake and go.


I make a new vow, one weighed in experience and proclaimed with my eyes open: I will not raise my scimitars except in defense: in defense of my principles, of my life, or of others who cannot defend themselves. I will not do battle to further the causes of false prophets, to further the treasures of kings, or to avenge my own injured pride.

Dave and I were shocked to hear the news. We were hoping he'd get better... not this. He put on a very brave fight. He's resting now.

Jordan's work made a profound difference to our lives. We wouldn't be here, together, if not for his books. He will be missed.

We'll drink the wine till the cup is dry,
And kiss the girls so they'll not cry,
And toss the dice until we fly,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows.


You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.
