Can't help but think he'd have told someone here what he was engaging out there, if he wanted us to know. Instead he gave us that. Surely it means that's how he'd wish to be remembered, not a man facing death.
Yes, that's true. We will have to accept that this here is not about US and our wish to express our grief, but about him.
Where he is now, he will know anyway what he had meant to us.
Thanks for giving a couple more details. I'm glad there is family - I had feared he had chosen his screen name Lnwlf - lone wolf, because he was all by himself with no one who cares about him. Glad this was not the case.
