So, submitted for your approval:

1) SGA ep entitled "Sunday". Beckett dies. Me not happy.
2) Last Sunday. George Carlin dies. Me seriously and in an RL way, not happy.
3) This Sunday (yesterday). Don S Davis, Gen Hammond, the sweetest man in uniform, died.


Fuck Sundays.

I had the chance to meet Don Davis once, for a photo op at a convention. I was nervous, though I didn't say it, but he had a huge smile and gave me a hug and kissed me on the cheek like I was his granddaughter. It's just the kind of guy he was.

This sucks.

For anyone who didn't know about his lovely art and set design, his website is worth a look. I signed his guestbook once before and I don't know if anyone will now be reading it, but I sent a message of condolence today anyway.

He was a cool cat and a class act, that one.

A message on Gateworld from his wife, Ruby.

Vid on Gateworld for Don

Godspeed, Don.
You will be sorely missed.

I am deeply saddened by this, too, my friend.

Our journeys all begin, and they all end. We are never ready for either action, and neither are those around us.

Not much else to say...you know where to find me...

Got your reply, though it's not here...I suppose there may be reasons for that. Good ones.

But I'm here again for a good reason, too.

It's at the left.

Yeah, it was a bit more PM-y, really. I may have my heart on my sleeve at times, but I prefer to wear a jacket out. I still thought yours was a lovely comment.

Though I miss you in the corporeal sense, I am so glad to have you beside me in spirit.
Thanks, jack-

she's tore up plenty but she'll fly true.

Damn straight. Even with a bit of a wobble from time to time. But she'll make port.

And I see the days when my hairs grow grey, and I finally disappear...NOT YET!

It was so sad when I heard the news that he had passed on. He was still so young! I had no idea that he had left SG-1 because of health reasons I had just assumed it was because RDA wanted to lay back on his time on screen.
