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"

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.
