Khephra has died
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I thought people in this forum would like to know, because he was a Dean man. In fact, he called me the day he got on board with the campaign, way early in the primary season. I'd never heard him sound happier.

3. I don't post this often, but I've always enjoyed his posts
...always well-balanced and so well-informed.

What a terrible loss. I wonder how we can help his mom? :cry:

13. There isn't anything to say.
Time maybe. There are things we can't understand, most things.

10. OMFG!!!!
What horrendous news. And how horrible for Momma Kpephra to find him that way. Khpeph was a friend, although I never met him.

I'm stunned and saddened.

12. A sad day for us all
I've been a member since 2001, although I don't post that much. Kephra's posts caught my attention early on. He will be deeply missed.

My condolences to his family and friends in both the real and cyberworld.

:cry:

14. He was the first DUer that I came to know


I can not believe this. I hope you find peace Kheph. I just can not believe you are gone...spirit be with us.

To all his kin please accept my deepest sympathies.

16. Best DUer ever...
My heart is in shreads....

Khephra, you are part of my soul always. You made me a better, smarter, nicer liberal and DUer.

I feel overwhelming sadness and emptiness...crushing sadness and emptiness.

You made such a difference my friend...find that peace, it is waiting for you. We will get together, we will.

LBN will never be the same for me.

Alyce

Thank you very much for posting this.

17. So sad. I was just looking back at some of his posts.
I came here in mid 2002, and I always admired his news and his posts. I sat here and cried when I read it. How sad for his mother.

18. Thanks for posting this, Will. AWFUL news, though.
And he was so young. I had no idea. He always came across like an old sage. Bless his heart. He shared lots of wisdom here, and I, for one, will always be appreciative. Prayers for his mom. I think I'll go light a candle.
