My dad, anglagard, passed away last night after having a rough time with his health over the past couple months. Of all my family members, he was the one I was closest to. I feel unmoored and like I've been doused in ice water.
Anglagard pushed us to be better people. He was always right too, in our debates. Im still processing this loss and im sure you feel it much deeper...my condolences and empathy, Mercury.

“A God without wrath brought men without sin into a Kingdom without judgment through the ministrations of a Christ without a Cross.” H. Richard Niebuhr, The Kingdom of God in America
“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of a doubt, what is laid before him.” — Leo Tolstoy, The Kingdom of God is Within You (1894).
