    The Passing of a Wonderful Person

    Post by Crossfire on Wed Apr 25, 2012 5:55 pm

    It has been brought to my attention today that Ralph Lane (Pavise) has passed away. Ralph a while back had the sad task of announcing the passing of Robin Allen. Today I have the sad task of announcing the passing of Ralph Lane, Sunday April 22. 2012. They were both my friends and mentors. and will be sorely missed.


    Condolences can be forwarded to:

    Maaan, Pavise was such a cool guy!

    He just stopped posting one day on the forum, and I got worried, but when trying to write him an e-mail found out there was a typo during registration and instead of reaching him I hit a wall with some angry woman on the other end. Didn't catch his full name either (just knew Pavise / Ralph) with internet being so anonymous and was left with only one option - wait and hope for the best...not so great a feeling. Neutral

    Crossfire, thank you for posting this. He will be missed greatly and we'll do our best to try and comfort the man's family, I know I will.

    Again thanks and sorry for the loss of our friend. A moment of silence in life would be appropriate, but on the net it's the opposite...guys - make some noise in remembrance of a great man. We'll keep the Art alive and our Mentors will live on in our memories. These memories will be like seeds...where one has fallen, a tree will grow, bearing 1000 fruits...and I'll be there to make sure that tree lives on for many years to come.

    It's always a shock to hear of the death of a member on one's "tribe"; even if you never really knew him....

    Go with God, Pavise.

    I personally did not know him, but sorry for the loss. Read through a bunch of things (advice) that he wrote on the forum. His knowledge and skill will surely be missed.
