In Memory of Jakel [Jaap Keller]

It is with great sadness that we hear now about the passing of Jaap Keller, on November 12, 2005. Jaap was better known to the Renderosity Community as the artist Jakel.  






 "He died just 3 weeks after being diagnosed with cancer. We, his family are grateful for your support you sent him and us. We want to remember him here on this site which meant so very much to him.

He has written his goodbye to all of his friends on Renderosity and FaerieWylde (Link).
Thanks for everything. And please remember: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life"
~Jakel’s family

The Renderosity Community extends our deepest sympathies and best wishes to Jaap's family and friends. He will be greatly missed. Please join with us in sending Jaap's family and friends our condolences.

We also invite you to take a few moments to view Jaap's Renderosity Art Gallery.

Cancer is a nasty thing. I am so glad he didn't have to suffer through it. He is at peace and without pain. My deepest sympathy to the family. He was a very talented artist and will be missed.

"There is a saying that the dreams and imaginings of the creative mind create the world to be entered in the afterlife"

I didn't know you Jakel whilst you were alive and here with us...but I understand that all we have here in Renderosity is each other. I understand that your immortality is in the fruits of your mind-your works.

May your Family,see the joy in the legacy you left behind and not the sadness that is left behind you. Ciao, Friend.

So for me very unpleasantly.
I am uniting with the family in pain.
I know as large it is pain recently
my Mum walked away .....
I am lighting lights of the memory.


I apologise for English...
I am coming from Poland
and poorly I am writing in English.
