I was ready for bed when I wrote that last night. I met Shadowlord WAY back in like 2005 or something. (Damn that was 17 years ago!) We were both members of a pot site called Overgrow, then Planet Ganja. Time flies eh? Here is a little bit of the story of how we got to be friends.
I met him when he planted his first bagseeds and he had a little grow in a 3x4 closet with only a couple plants. We were talking back and forth, and I offered to send him clones, and when he gave me his addy, I said, "Damn brother, that is only an hour or so from here, I would almost rather drop them off than take a chance losing them in the mail." I took him a dozen clones of about 6 fantastic strains. He was floored that I did that, and we became good friends in no time, sharing lots of killer genetics back and forth. Eventually he introduced me to Mycotopia, and for that gift I will be forever thankful. Being a member here and the amazing people here literally pulled me back from the edge a few times over the years, and this place has become a second family to me. Thank you all for that. I genuinely care for so many people here I couldn't list them all I think.
I'm unsure of what he passed from, and not likely to find out as we didn't have any real life friends in common for quite a while now. He had been out of touch for about three months and was dealing with some heavy life blows. We talked a back and forth for about a month, and then he fell off the radar. I was on a social media site at about 2 am last night and getting ready to go to bed, when his ex, who is a really nice little lady texted me out of the blue. She texted me about 6 weeks ago and I told her I had not talked with him either. They split up a few years back, but she was friends with him and his lady still. She told me he had passed, and man that hit me deep. Too many, "Prayers for all" and RIP threads in the last two years, and the words are stale in my mouth. No way to really explain, but a lot of us understand now after all the deaths in the last few years.
We are ALL in that lineup, so live your life! Laugh, love, smile, dance and make love every chance you get. If you are wishing you could trip just one more time, DO IT. It will make you remember those good old days. You will not be sorry! You only have one shot at this precious life, so LIVE IT!
Love ya'll This one really hurt.
