I'm so sad to hear that.
He contributed so much to this world. I'm disappointed I didn't get to see him one last time.
He will be sadly missed. Love ya Pouch.
Please, if there is anything I can do. Or if you need someone to talk to. Don't hesitate to contact me. Or give me your number to contact you on.
That is sad. I am sorry to hear this news. :(
You will be greatly missed, I hope you are in the big cuddly roo suit in the sky.
that is really sad news .. he contributed so much!
*sits in silence, looking real stunned and as he closes his eyes a tear rolls down his cheek*
I am so sorry. :( I just don't know what else to say, right now.
I'm so sorry to hear this. Was looking forward to seeing you and your hubbyroo next year in Australia. My deepest condolences to you Rain. *hugz tightly*
*Hug* I wish I could have given you so many more hugs today when I was out there on the balcony with you, hon. You are such a sweetheart and I was struggling to hold back tears while I was out there with you. If there's anything I can do to help - don't hesitate to call on me.
Fuck. Pouch is gone.
I can't believe it! I really can't!
I suppose I have no choice, but to believe it. I enjoyed every conversation we had, even if it was infrequent...both here on LJ, and on Yahoo 360.
Man, this sucks. :(
Pouch, I'll miss ya man.
My condolences to you Rainhopper. I have no way to get to CA,so all I can give is my well wishes.
Hoka Hey, Brothers and Sisters.
There are times when even the bravest warrior must stop.
Times when even the strongest person can break.
Things which strike us a blow, from which we cannot recover.
We look to the Sky and whisper, "Why?"
But the Sky gives us no answers.
We turn to the Waters and murmur, "Why?"
But the Water gives us no answer.
We turn to the Mountains and scream, "WHY!?!"
But the Mountain only turns our cries back to us.
Falling to our knees, broken and empty, we weep,
Only to find our tears watering the flowers at our feet.
And the Flowers whisper to us,
"Do not cry? They live! They Live in Me!"
And as we raise our eyes to the fields, drenched in sunset light,
The flowers sing to us amidst the gentle breeze.
The flowers grow along the banks of the river.
The flowers bloom upon the side of the mountain.
"Hoka Hey," they sing to us, "Hoka Hey!"
"Our Brother Walks in Golden Fields amid Sunset Light!"
"Hoka Hey," they shout to us, "Hoka Hey!"
"His steps are strong, his stride made Right!"
"Your Brother was broken in body, but not in Spirit!
Look, look! Look upon him now!
His cane lies upon the ground at our feet!
His bones are healed, his flesh made of Light!"
"Do not weep," whispers the Wind.
"Do not weep," murmurs the Water.
"Do not weep," echoes the Mountain.
"Sing." chorus the Flowers.
"Hoka Hey!" they tell us! "Hoka Hey!"
"Sing it loud, sing it clear!
Let All in Heaven Know, A Warrior Comes!
Hold Fast, There Is More!
I met Pouchopper in person for the first time at FC this year. Several friends gave very high recommendations for the guy, stating he was a wonderful person that did a lot for everyone.
I'm glad I had the opportunity to shake his hand before he died. My sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends.
I dont know if I ever got the pleasure to meet Pouchhopper, but to see such a thing happen is always a horrible tradgedy. Rest well good roo.
OMG! I'm sooooo sorry for your loss *hugs* Pouch was a good friend and a wonderful person ... he will be deeply missed.
I sincerely hope I will be able to attend the service in fursuit. I'm sure he'd want some suiters there :)
This is so sad! He was such a nice and friendly guy, and contributed so much! D:
*hugs Rain, hard*
Wow, I'm shocked to hear this. *hugs to Rain* I'm so sorry.
I couldn't believe it when Jay told me this evening. I'm still in disbelief. I have to say that I'm also very glad to have met him before he died. I went to his house once and had a great conversation with him. I went there to pick up the awesome horse tail he made for me. I also met and chatted with him at FC. I had hoped to visit with him again sometime with our mutual friend Jay. I think losing Pouch is a big loss to the Furry community. He will be missed by many.
This is so sad :( He was a great guy and will be missed a lot. My condolences to you and his family.
Alpine, sorry for your loss. I understand how hard this can be. At least he's not in pain anymore.
I didn't get to meet Pouchhopper in person or anything, but he sounded like quite the fellow. Let me know if you need anything.
My god, i'm so sorry....he'll be missed by many...i never got a chance to meet him in person, and i was looking forword to it at fc....
You shall be missed and remembered by many.
And i'm sure you're going to watch us all from above with a smirk on your face when seeing us have trouble and fun with your creations and your friends.
You made the world a bit nicer for some and your visions changed peoples understanding of things.
This is more than many will ever achieve. Be proud, wherever you are now.
I've done my small tribute to that wonderful 'roo. I'm so glad I got to share a few hours of his life. We're sad now, but over time we'll remember the happiness he brought into our lives. And that's how he would have wanted it. Pouch is at peace now and we're left to carry on and keep his memory alive.
I'm sure I crossed path with PouchHopper in several ways over the years either via the plush or fursuiters' community. Marko's memories concisely say how much pleasure and joy Pouchhopper shared so freely with others. I mourn the loss of such a happyFur.
