i presume his fetes, for i never met the man. but if his tale is any indication of his granduer , he has taken his place in tel'aran'rhiod, alongside heroes of legends, and Hopper. i wish him the best and hope the wheel will turn him out again in a time he can use his beautiful mind to help again the world.
