May you rest in peace,my dear Redstone...
Last night I got a phone call from a dear close friend of Redstone...

He died in his sleep last Tuesday night.

What a man he was! Funny, wicked funny, and smart, compassionate, intelligent beyond belief...and so much more.

His loss will be felt forever by his wife, and his sons, and by us.

Who among us did not relish his stories, his calm way of seeing events? I always felt so happy to see him posting, for I knew that there would be good things to absorb and ponder in his threads...

I don't know exactly how old he was, but I don't believe he was even 60...too soon, always too soon...

Our phone calls were not frequent, but they were memorable. I was honored to hear him laugh...

My heart overflows with tears...

Rest in peace, my dear Redstone...the world is diminished with your passing...

About a post he made...about smokers, actually. Well, smoking. How smoke is a sacrament for Native Americans.

Redstone was my friend. (((( RIP Redstone and family of Redstone. ))))

I haven't talked to him in six years (we met a couple of times in person), but if I remember right he has MS. My SO lives very close to where he lived, so I'm down that way a lot. Should we do something? Anyone know more info? What a shame. My heart goes out to his family.

One of the funniest things I ever saw in the lounge was the picture he posted of himself sitting around and standing around in his house with... himself.

Thank you for your contributions to DU, Redstone.

72. Taps.....RIP
Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh -- Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Then good night, peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn shineth bright;
God is near, do not fear -- Friend, good night.

93. Redstone has been and will always be an integral part of my DU experience...
My gosh, what a DU reunion there must be out there....

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
The sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.


RIP, dear Redstone, you'll long be remembered for your contributions and friendship here.
:hug:

maybe I just missed them? Redstone was one of my favorite DUers, and yes, he was one of the sharpest, too. Condolences to his family and friends; he will be greatly missed.

Easily one of my favorite folks I met here and spoke to on the phone now and then.

Every thing Peggy has stated is true, no doubt. Times 10.

Rest in peace, friend.

172. I looked up some of his posts
and I thought this one was awesome and really showed what kind of man he was. It was written December 24, 2008

"To the lovelorn, and the lost, and the suffering, and the lonely during this holiday season,"

His message will live on.

"Do not lose faith. Have hope. Give charity if you can, or accept it if you need.

178. I loved his posts. Really looked forward to them.
Peggy, what you said can't be topped by me. It's funny, I never got to meet him in 'real life', but I loved him all the same. Redstone, you are HUGELY MISSED!!!!!!

190. I did not know him well. But it sounds like he touched many lives.
He is beyond pain and suffering. Those who are left bear the burden--but in our lives, if we are loved then our presence will bring joy and our absence will bring devastation and grief. It is our legacy to matter so much that someone hurts without us, otherwise nothing means anything.

RIP, Redstone. Hugs to all who love you.

196. I met him at DU meetups in the Boston area.
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 04:25 PM by Kat45
I remember the first time I saw him, walking into the People's Republic bar in Cambridge. He was a tall, good looking man, wearing a leather hat. I had a nice conversation with him that day. Nice guy. I also enjoyed his posts on DU.

I'm so sorry and saddened to hear about his passing. I know he had his health problems, but I was still surprised to read this. I suppose going in one's sleep is an easier way to go, and at least now he is free of pain. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Redstone.

Re: My ex has Syringomyeliay
From: Redstone
Date: Feb-18-07 01:05 PM
Holy Mary, Mother of God, I'm going to stop complaining about my shoulder!

Man, does ex have it rough. And Mrs R certainly can relate, though not on YOUR level, to how hard it must be for you to watch your ex-wife's pain and be frustrated that you can't help.

Offer my best wishes to your ex-wife, and please accept mine for you as well. It's a damn rough road you both must follow.

Now that I know this, I'll certainly understand if I ever see you getting crabby in the forums, and I'll try to offer some support if I can.

And thanks a lot for taking the time to write me this note.

Redstone



Rest in peace my friend I shall miss you dearly, rest in peace......

269. He was a good man.
I didn't always agree, but always enjoyed his perspective.

We are poorer for his passing.

My condolences to his wife and family.

I was afraid it might come to this, he had so many afflictions. Thanks for sharing the news, Peggy.

Lasher

Edit: I have been unable to find an obituary for Redstone. I hope his family won't mind my sharing this picture of him:



I am filled with sadness at the loss of this fine individual.

There's a place where you can sign the guest book, too...

I am still numb from hearing the news last night...

296. I did't know him
But: if he was important enough for you to care this much, Peggy, then he was special enough for me to mourn his loss along with you.

Since I came close to becoming an identical statistic on August 22 of this year, also just shy of 60, this hit home.

I always considered Redstone to be the class of this place - always thoughtful and intelligent replies, with a respect and maturity that he imparted to everyone. Even the ones who didn't quite deserve it.

I wish you happiness and peace in your next life, and my condolences to your family.

314. Thank you Peggy for letting us know. I've wondered often how he was doing
and would occasionally check in to see if there was a post from him, especially after a post when he said he didn't have long. I wasn't sure how to take that but I suspected his illness was progressing.

One thing that always stood out for me was his love for his family. My heart breaks for them losing him way too soon.

RIP Redstone. You made our DU community so much better. Rest easy my dear friend. I wish my family and I could have met you in person, I just know you would have talked some sense into that boy of mine who was in a race with you for the biggest number of concussions.

Hugs and my deepest sympathy to the Redstone family.

316. Oh no....I am in shock
Edited on Tue Nov-08-11 06:42 AM by RFKHumphreyObama
He was such an awesome, wonderful man with a great way of posting. He was so kind and generous and good. I knew he was sick but I wasn't prepared for this.

He contributed so much to DU -his warm sense of humor, his uplifting posts, his great character. I was especially looking forward to his annual Christmas message that he re-posted each year to give hope to those who were feeling depressed, sad and lonely -it was one of the most powerful and moving posts I have read in my life and gave me a lot of hope and inspiration during some very dark times. His bravery and courage throughout all his painful ordeals was amazing as well

This is sad on so many levels. I can't even begin put it into words

And my heart breaks for his wife and his children -his love and affection for them shone through in his posts. I cannot even begin to imagine what a wonderful husband and father he must have been

I can only offer my deepest, sincerest and most heartfelt thoughts, prayers, condolences and sympathies to all the family and friends of such a wonderful man. I hope they know through his postings on here that he touched the hearts and souls of countless people around the globe. I cannot imagine how much more so that must have been for those who knew him in real life. Perhaps that will be his most powerful legacy that he will leave behind.

RIP Redstone. I knew you made a better life for so many people and you truly did make the world a better place through your existence. I hope you are in a place now free from pain and suffering and I know we'll see you again. We have all lost immensely
