    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.

    SON OF A BITCH!!!

    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. The Passing of a Wonderful Person 707797 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.

    Ivo

    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.
