Long time member, infrequent poster rjk has died.

I don’t know how many people here will know him, but he did post here.

We met on this board in 2000, at the first Vegas Dopefest. He embodied much of what is good on this board - intelligent, a wide variety of interests, and a twisted sense of humor. But especially, a great, accepting, and kind heart.
Thank you to Cecil Adams and this board for bringing us together - he was the best thing in my life. The 18 years I had with him are by far the best years of my life.

My condolences on your loss.

Damn! He and I shared a love of ginger beverages. I’d recently recommended a non-alcoholic ginger cordial to him. I will miss him.

My condolences on your loss. I know your time together was too short, but it sounds like it was wonderful and I’m glad you have those happy memories.

Zyada, I am so sorry to hear that. My heartfelt condolences. :frowning:

Peace to you.

My condolences to you and yours. RIP, rjk.

I recognize the name and regret that he is gone. Strength to you, Zyada.

Condolences to you, Zyada.

I remember Bob, he was a good one. Y’all were a cute couple. Hopes for peace and strength from us to you Z. He’ll be missed.
