The Loss Of Our Fezziwig

It always seemed to me that you would be there forever.  You and your house, the party house!  Never empty, always open and inviting, always warm.  Were there even locks on the doors?  I imagine there were, but I honestly can't remember them....  Oh what a marvelous host you were!  I don't even have to close my eyes to see the lavish theme parties or the casual backyard picnics...every one a little different, but oh so much fun.  You never turned us away, we were always welcome with a smile, a hug, and a "Well hello beautiful!"  You helped create and foster so many friendships (and relationships!), we all owe you so much.  I've never lost a close friend before, and I never thought it'd be like this....I have looked in the face of death, but it was with the eyes of a child: naive and simple.  This is far more complicated, far more real.  I can't quite wrap my brain around it....yet.  I miss you.  I can't help but think of all the things that won't be....all the parties, all the hugs and kisses, all the singing, dancing, drum playing, the stories to be told...oh the stories.  You had the best stories, and the most marvelous way of telling them, we all adored it.  You opened my eyes to a world I didn't know existed, taught me how to look at life differently.  I owe you so very much, and I am so very grateful to have had you in my life, even for this short time.  Please know that I feel there is so much more at stake here then the loss of human life....we have lost a good soul, and amazing spirit, a gifted man, a dashing smile, a joyful laugh, a fabulous dresser and accessorizor, the life of the party-as well as it's most magnificent host, the cornerstone of our scene, a friend to the freakiest of the freak show, the patriarch of our clan, the owner of our haven home......our brother.  We will always love you, we will carry you and your spirit with us forever.  Be at peace, dear friend.
