Grondmaster's memorial thread

Post#151 » Sat Sep 08, 2012 6:04 pm


 



Arwen, Ama, and Leelee, it is so great to see you guys are still active on this site! (Despite your never having talked to me, Arwen, I do believe that I've seen your name floating around the planet at the height of my activity here). Thanks for the link to the I REMEMBER thread. I have looked at it (you are so sweet, as always, Leelee! I am guilt-ridden for not spending more time here) and will answer it shortly.



I am still mourning for Grondy. What a sad thing to come back to... But I suppose he would be comforted to see that his old friends have not abandoned the site he so loved, even to his last days. This thread is one of partings and reunions, I feel.

Cloveress, you're so true about Leelee. She really is so sweet and kind and lovely and understanding. And I think you're also very sweet, dear. I'm not sure if you have seen my name before. My first login was on 21/09/11 so....


Oh Grondmaster. I pray for you. You will always be remembered.


Btw I love the I REMEMBER tread. It's lovely to see all those good memories members have about eachother. I'm quite new so I don't really know peoplefrom the old times. But still it's lovely and I think also sad, yes sad to read.

I only knew Grondmaster from reading his posts, which seemed to pop up from time to time (first few months of my first log in).  It was only those few months later that I realised he had passed away, and only then because of the wonderful things the Elders of PT constantly said about him.  Everything I've read from him is informative, full of love and soul and entertaining.  He truly must have been a great person.

Rest in peace dear friend.

Ta-Daa! he is now seventy four. He is a legend, and even though I came here only after he died, I have read too many of the old threads not to be sad. If you are looking down on this, Happy Birthday to you.

I was only able to share this forum with Grondmaster for several months, but from the first post I could tell he would inspire me tremendously. After a few, I knew I'd never forget him. So easy and welcoming to talk about Tolkien with, every post taught me something new...always about Tolkien, if not also about how great the human spirit can be. I'm very grateful I was able to experience his kindness, if not only for a short time. Namarie, Grondmaster



 



Cur, is his birthday January or is it February? Either way, Happy early birthday/today birthday Grondmaster :)
