Friends of ALDAN

Post by JBinCa »

I had previously visited this site to view my brother "ALDAN" wonderful works of poetry. I know it has been some time since he has written any works, but I wanted to let those of you who knew him, or of him, that he has recently passed away. Thank you to all who befriended him and encouraged his writing.

Oh my gosh! Aldan has been a member here for several years and posted within the last week. I am really shocked.

I am so very sorry for your terrible loss Jen. Your brother will be sorely missed and I thank you for sharing this sad news with us.

I'm stunned. Not only was Aldan a fellow member of the PATD, he was a true friend. He will be greatly missed here. If there's anything we can do Jen, please let me know. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I raise a glass to you, Aldan. You shall be remembered, my friend.

Oh my God Jen, I am so very sorry for your loss. I considered Aldan to be a friend and am in shock over this news. I just can't get over this. Sometimes words cannot do our emotions justice. I will miss his humour and poetry and compassion. I always admired his strength, his intelligence etc.

Goodbye my friend. I shall miss you. You will never be forgotten. Be in peace and wave at the angels for me. Love from Lorri.

I feel like I've just been informed that a member of my immediate family has passed away. No "smiley" for that gut check.

He will be greatly missed, and remembered with fondness.
