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.

Rest In Peace, Damien. Your friends love you, and I know that even though I don't know you.

After reading a message about your passing and how wonderful you were, I felt really bad and I wished I could've met you before.
You were a wonderful person and a friend to many people. DeviantArt and the people who knew you probably wouldn't be the same without you.

Rest in peace, sir.
