It's been a pleasure to know you Rich!
You've done some fantastic deep dives on all sorts of topics and I've personally learned a great deal from you.
I'm deeply saddened to read this.
We haven't always agreed on everything but there's always been a ton of respect between us. You've been one of my earliest supporters on the platform and I've been a fan of your work since the beginning.
Thank you for making deep dives a better place and for your significant contributions to our community, they will not be forgotten.
I'm heartened to hear that you're at peace with things as they are.
You're a true investigator and even better person.
You will be missed immensely!
Respect, V

Thank you my old friend! We hit Steemit at about the same time and it was your writing that made me see that it was ok to use an academic style. It's the style that I'm the most used to so I owe my success here to you.

I'm not done yet and as long as I can do it, I'll continue to write -- just not as often. If I can get a post or two a week I'll be happy. There's a lot of truth yet to tell.

Thank you for your friendship and support, you're the best. I only wish I had your writing skills. Not farewell yet, but until next time.

That's a relief, I wasn't sure if this was going to be your final post. I must have misunderstood what you were tying to say. I hope to return to making a few posts again soon too myself. Been reading a lot of books and working on some things in the background. Definitely, there's a lot of truth left to tell still. Stay strong and I wish you nothing but the best my friend! Keep fighting the good fight.

Smithlabs is sending me some stinging nettle which is supposed to cure COPD, it repairs your lungs. If it can buy me a few months I'll be grateful. I wanted to get this post out just in case. Honestly, I don't know if I'm going to wake up when I go to bed at night. I can feel the life force draining away, but only God knows the time.
