It's with great sadness that I share the news that Q has passed away.
Might seem strange but, even though I never actually met Q, heard his voice or saw his picture, he was in many ways the greatest friend I've ever had. More like a brother than a friend, his daily emails, inappropriate memes, and constant stream of funny YouTube videos kept me going in my darkest hours, including a lengthy and near fatal illness.
Those who followed Q's blog will know that he was haunted by many demons but never lost his sharp wit or crazy sense of humour. I console myself with the knowledge that he is finally and peace and free of pain.
As a Buddhist, I believe the removal of one
being from the universe would upset its delicate balance causing chaos in the
cosmos. For this reason, no soul is ever truly lost but moves on to exist in
another dimension and Q will always live on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
Q's sister, will be checking this post now and then. Please feel free to share a memory or funny story about her beloved brother.
