Thank you for your kind words and memories.  

Ragnar was one of those people who truly was larger than life.  He is 
deeply missed by all who knew and loved him and nothing around here will 
be quite the same for a long time.

>From those of you who knew him I would ask a favor: if you have stories 
or memories to share about Master Ragnar, I pray you do so.  These 
memories are of great comfort to his wife Thordis, and all his friends.  
Share them here, if you would.  I believe Lionardo will be collecting 
such postings to give to Thordis, and to publish in a future memorial.

My thanks.
