In Memory of Macarldie

Wow, I am still trying to come to grips with the loss of my friend Macarldie Nibbs. He's gone.

He was the most Incredible Talented Bright Shining Soul.

He was really beautiful. A beautiful soul that I will really miss. 

Even though we hadn't actually spoke in years, we'd communicated in emails and I'd created his website. How I wish I had Skyped you Macarldie. 

Life is like that we get so busy and then something happens. BAM!  Just like that life slaps you in the face and says "Wake up!"

I didn't even know anything, just noticed the website was down and then emailed and it came back and then I went to the Facebook page and found out that my dear friend Macarldie was gravely ill. Shocked I muddled about wondering what could have happened. Today  I learned of his passing and how and I'll just say he passed away in peace. He was deeply loved. I will miss you! I will post more wonderful things about you later.

You can see Macarldie performing in these video on his Youtube Channel
