I think it's a great idea.
Sorry to anyone, your in my thoughts an prayers. Godspeed to a better place...
I was shocked and saddened by the news of Billy and Don's passing. Both will be greatly missed.
I will always remember too.
"Those that go before us light the way."
Ohhh thank you guys,when my mother passed it seemed as if most of her friends and family just weren't there for us.In this day and time people just don't handle death the way we did just a few decades ago when I was a child...I felt abandoned and very lonely in my grief but my friends here at Renderosity and over at RDNA let me know I was not alone-for that I will be eternally grateful and know that my mother would be so very grateful I had you guys there for me.Then to see Ironhart and Don Tatro pass on consecutive days while I was hoping we might get something like this started...it was just heartbreaking.
A special thanks from me to LillianH...a special friend on the admin board that has always been available and who made this possible...but to all involved I say thank you and think this will mean so much to so many of us:)
It is kinda amazing that this is here. In two days, I will be celebrating the 10 year aniversary of my mothers passing. I was wondering how to honor her memory. Well I would like to say thank you for this opportunity. I have posted a picture in her memory in the gallery and thank you for having it available for us to do so.
To all of those who have lost loved ones, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Even after ten years, it still hurts. Especially since I now have a daughter of my own. My little one will miss out on this beautiful woman and I miss out on learning from my Mom's experience. I know that time heals all pain, but those memories are what keeps them alive. So remember them well and share their stories with others.
As to the families of Mr. Tatro and Ironheart, I send you my deepest sympathy and prayers. And thank you to the Renderosity staff for their thoughtfullness and love to this community. May God bless you all and grant His grace upon you.
This is a very touching and thoughtful way of remembering those whom we have lost, and to offer our deepest sympathies to those which have suffered personal losses themselves. Thank you for this wonderful idea. May all who grieve have the fond memories of their loved ones to help ease the pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
this is so nice to be able to share our pain togetheri lost my oldest sister in 1999 my mother in 2000 and my mother in law in 2003
the pain of losing a loved one may dull in time but it never goes away god bless you all
Wonderful idea! We all know art can be very therapeutic. It's even better when we can share those images (and possibly even memories) with others. -- ab39z
This is a most wonderful idea! I started CG by accident after my son died and Renderosity has given me a way start living again. My prayers go out to dontatro and ironharts' families and friends. They will be missed.
Yes. This is an excellent way to remember those we have lost. Exactly what I hoped for! Thank to the admins!
I think its a great idea as well. I know I am not very well known on here, still pretty green, but loosing someone be it a internet friend, or a real life loved one, the feelings are the same. And, though they might have passed, they will always be there in heart, mind and spirit. And when they touch your soul, they are forever remembered in every piece of art for a trace of them will always come from you.
The body is a just a capsule, for the day will come you will truely be free.
My prayers are with you and your families. May God Bless you all.
i really love this idea! it shows that people have love and compassion, when my mom died it broke my heart and i had alot of people from here that were so kind to me in that time, i really dont know what i wouldve done without those that were there for me, this is so wonderful and my heart goes out to ironheart and don tatros familys and im keeping them in my prayers always
Excellent idea,creation is a good way to help the healing process,and may help those who have lost to cope.
i cant say much.. my eyes are tearing up pretty badly here.. this is a very touching thing this community has done.
This is wonderful.. This means alot i am sure to every one who has lost someone recently.
I have lost both of my grandfathers this year with in 30 days of each other... so for speaking as someone who has lost not only one relative, but two.. this makes me cry from just the sheer beauty of it all. I haven't been close to either of my grandfather since i moved away, and it hurt that one of them was never close to me in that way a grand daughter and grandfather sometimes are.. my other.. well he was like my 2nd dad, ..ok .. enough NOW i am crying..
It's wonderful that the community has a place to remember those who have fallen. And a place to share their sadness with others, so that they may find strength in friendship. Well done.
I'm shocked and saddened to hear of DonTatro's passing. What a contribution to the 3D world he leaves for all of us. So many times his imagery and imagination made me smile or inspired me. This is a wonderful idea, a hallmark of a wonderful community.
This is a wonderful idea. I am greatly saddened to hear of the passing of these wonderful artists. What a great way to honor their memories! They will be missed...
I'm so sorry to hear of this.
Just wanted to share a small verse.
Do not stand on my grave and weep
I am not there I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints in the snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am a gentle Autumns rain
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
I am the birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
So do not stand on my grave and cry
I am not there.... I did not die
i just heard mondo jake died the other day, he was a great guy, full of cheer, my heart goes out to his family, you are gone but are not forgetton!
I was especially saddened to hear of Dan Davis' passing. He was a good friend. I believe this is a wonderful idea, and an especially special release to those who have lost a loved one!!
I resontly lost first my dad then some month later my mom, and i am not sure my girl loves me anymore. Life is hard and cruel and be in love with a cruel-hearted woman is the worst when times are difficult, hard to understand as women
are many times! I guess that is known by many that been through divorces and likewise!
A link, an image i did some year ago for a friend that died, has been used now a few times in lost. I miss you all my friends, that past away. I miss you mom and i miss you dad, and i miss you Paula!
This is a great way to pay tribute to your loved ones who have passed. I just lost my 11 month old to crib death. The actual cause is still unknown but she had sufficated. I feel for all of you who have lost a child or anyone for that matter. Moving on is the hardest part to deal with. But, I have faith and the will to keep moving. Leah whould have wanted me too. She is still my insparation.
this is a wonderful idea i lost my 8year old son due to a road accident. although it was14years ago there is not one day goes buy that he is not in my thoughts and i loved him dearly. his death affected his two brothers and sister terribly and everyone that knew him ,so for all those that have lost a loved one or a dear friend my thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
You did the right thing. Only thing to regret´s inevitable, each time some one new stumbles here to say yes, sorry, and we need this, he resharpenes knives intended to get numb and disappear by nature. Funny how different nature makes us. The unmushy part of me punches the nose of people calling it mushy, great alias, btw. So we´re all a bit mushy and punchy, some just punchy. I know where to punch, no we can mush. Being able to do so makes you need it less which is GOOD
Reading here I have no words, just strong feelings. I'm very, very sad. But we all need this... Thanks for the tribute to our loved ones.
I saw this section the other day, but didn't have time to look through it. *sigh* The last four months of my life was totally crazy, insane and death was everywhere. First my employer - who I've been working with closely for the past 4 years - fell off a ladder at his home, broke his scull and passed away on the 17th of July. I couldn't believe the news at first and honestly, I can't remember when last any bad news hit me so hard. Ferdie was my Dad at the office. His door was always open for anyone and about anything. He was a great man and I miss you dearly...
Then Gran passed away after a sickbead of 5 years - on the 17th of September. Just before my birthday. Weird how these two deaths were both on the 17th. Her death was expected, though she was the last of my grans to pass away. So I felt that certain loss more than I would with any of the others I think. I was also her only granddaughter.
And right after that, one of my pets had a really really bad epileptic ceizure - actually that Friday after Gran's death. He didn't come out of it again and had such bad brain damage, that he couldn't even walk and lost all control over his body. I think, that Saturday morning when I had to say good bye to my little Xavier... It all came crashed down around me. The loss was too much and it took me about two months before I started to breath again.
Anyway, thanx for the tribute. I'm still trying to get back on my feet, but I'll probably get there sometime or another...
I'm saddened to hear of your losses. I know it's hard.
Weird how they seem to come in 3s.
I'm glad you found this space. I hope that you can find comfort here.
Best wishes to you,
The loss of a loved human is devastating, so can the loss of a pet for many also. For many years my life has revolved around my dogs,and recently have had to say goodbye to a friend of 16 years.
One of the hardest things to do when you share your life with an animal, is making that unwanted decision of when the time comes, to say the time has come to say goodbye.Here is a poem that I hold dear to my heart, hoping you can find comfort in it too.
A Pet's Prayer.
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done,
for this the last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
don't let your grief then stay your hand,
for this day, more than the rest,
your love and friendship stands the test.
We've had so many years,
what is to come can hold no fears,
you'd not want me to suffer, so,
when the time comes, please let me go.
Take me where my needs they'll tend,
only stay with me until the end,
and hold me firm and speak to me,
until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will see,
it is a kindness you do for me,
although my tail its last has waved,
from all suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve, it should be you,
who decides this thing to do,
we've been so close, we two, these years,
don't let your heart hold any tears.
Smile, for we walked together,
for a little while.
