Somehow, I missed this until just now. When I saw the subject line, I feared the worst, and almost didn't go any further.
Good to know he was worthy of you.

Tonight I shall toast Reap. In celebration of his life, and in holding your heart dear.

Thank you for sharing him with us.

So sad to hear this Kath, I really liked him just from hearing you talk about him. I wish you peace.

I missed you, so I posted a little something on your Facebook page. Now I know why you weren't replying. This is just the saddest thing - you two lunatics seemed perfect for each other. I deleted the FB post (certainly not somber enough), but please don't stray too far.
But somehow when you smile, I can brave bad weather.

Something on FB made me come here and my worst fear became true.

I know Reap from the few listening sessions we did on here but no further.

Except for the good and kind words you always had for him.

Life as we know it -and we do know it- isn't fair.

RIP. Thinking of y'all.

So sorry, Kath. At a loss for words. The great love you had for each other was obvious in everything you did. May his memory always be a blessing.

i just can't fucking believe it... cannot. fucking. believe it.

i saw Pete's FB post about Reap and Zep, and at first thought it was a joke, but saw the comments and realized it wasn't... i can't fathom your loss, kath... uh uh... one person should never have to endure the losses you have, my friend... and it sucks that we have to be so far apart, because everything in me wants to comfort you, take you places, hug you, and keep you company while you go through this process yet again... like a real friend would... but unfortunately, this is it... none of this is fair, AT all... maybe 7 weeks since your "reapaversary" and now this?? what the hell, man...

i echo: my inboxes are always open, i will always reply to you ASAP, if you want, call me... whatever i could do, how ever i could be there for you, just say so... you've always been good to me and so many others, kath, it's the least we can do

I'm so sorry Kath. Reap sounded like an absolutely great guy who loved you as much as you him. I offer my most sincere condolences. And yes I will crank up Zep tonight.

I'm stunned and I can't find the right words. If only I could help.

Just know that a lot of people here have you and reap in their thoughts.
