With sadness I've discovered, r.i.p. kemp
« on: February 12, 2016, 11:49:26 PM »
Opening facebook, I read of his passing.
Suddenly by his own hand. I don't know why or the situation, but in recent days he was posting photos.  A few days ago, he wished his friends to live in peace.

we need to stick together even if it tears us apart

I just found out. Hed attempted it before.
a group of us, on peyote, had little to share with a group on marijuana

the marijuana smokers were discussing questions of the utmost profundity and we were sticking our fingers in our navels & giggling

I hadn't known. Even from across the ocean, there's always the regret - I should've said, I meant to tell him...etc


as IOPan says - stick together. life is short.
say what we feel when we feel it. not to wait.


thanks to all for being here. it's a short whistle from first acquaintance to 'there ain't no more'.
might as well live.

Kemp was about as good a friend as you can have online. We talked a lot. I know he had issues in his life, he didnt share them much.

That is too bad. Depression can be a terrible thing.

After having Kemp stay with myself and my woman for a few months it became clear he had problems no one could work out but himself. The guy thought I was hacking him for months after I came back to Kentucky where I still am now. Didn't even have internet access. I assume his issues got the best of him and he became over-paranoid.

I'll miss spooning you at the SPF campout Kemp.

Good luck on that forever journey into realms only glimpsed.

Damn. This makes me sad. RIP, Kemp.
What I need is a strong drink and a peer group....
