I had the honor to be his man of arms for a short while, travel with him,
and socialize in the modern world. Though none of us are perfect, he came
pretty close. He was honorable in all parts of his life. He was courteous
even to the discourteous. He cared deeply about the people around him,
training fighters and artisans, encouraging those who needed it, praising
those who deserved it. 

I remember him kneeling in 4 inches of very cold rushing water to swear
fealty to his king because his honor required it of him.

I hope I may yet learn from him and become a better person for it. I will
miss him.

I called last night and spoke with some family in Atenveldt that told me his
chain was brought to the Crown with a very moving speech by his lady this
weekend past at an event in Atenveldt.  I don't have many more details at
this point but I was told the expected wake is at Encanto Park in Phoenix on
the 2nd of April, although the park site may change.

I will miss his mischievious laugh and all the fun he brought to everyone
around him.
