Renee just pasted away 1/14/2014 this afternoon she went peacefully to her LORD.

This is oh so sad I am in shock..
Renee will be truly missed in the art community and in the world  but she is no longer in pain and will suffer no longer.
I pray for her family and lets all say a prayer.

"Our Father which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name,
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, 
as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever."      -- Amen.



Lord, I come to you know for my friend. I come to you to ask that you provide them strength and comfort in this time of deep need. Their hurt and grief run so deep. I feel so much pain for them, but I can only imagine how hard this time must be for them. I pray that you help them maintain their faith in you during this difficult time.

I know you can be our greatest shoulder, but I also ask that you remain their biggest provider. It is a time when daily life can be so burdensome. Please provide patience from others as they work through their grief. Surround them with understanding so that they can work through all the emotions this loss brought up. In this time when so many things get lost - bills need to be paid, homework needs to be done, etc. - allow those around them to help keep regular life on track.

And Lord, allow me to be a comfort to my friend. Help me be what they need during this time. Provide me with the comforting words, the kindness in my heart, the patience to allow the grief to take it's course. Let me be part of your light and comfort during this time.


I pray these things in your holy name. Amen.

I pulled this from Frankie's Journal post on Deviantart.


This is just a update from Frankie's Journal.

Just an update to let you know that arrangements have been made for Gary's funeral on Tuesday. If any of his friends would like to leave condolences they can do so at the link below.


I would like to thank all of you for your kind words and I have shared all of the journals and tributes with Gary's family. I am sure they brought some comfort during a difficult time for them.
It would be absolutely awesome if all of you who posted here would go to the link and leave condolences for Gary and his family. I would love to see a vast outpouring of love for a true friend.
No need to leave an additional comment here unless you feel you want to! Check out his photo from a healthier time. He was quite the handsome DUDE!

Thanks so much,

It is with a heavy heart that I post this journal. It is always hard to say good bye to an old and trusted friend, and so much harder when it comes about so suddenly and unexpectedly. Many of my friends and watchers are also friends with  :iconskyzyk: Gary, alias skyzyk  has been a friend and confidant of mine for the last few years and we spent many hours swapping artwork and ideas along with the latest versions of graphics software. It was last week when I realized that he had not returned my latest email and that he had not been present here on DA for several days. I went on FaceBook and found his sister and asked if she would check on his well being. It was with great dismay that I learned that they had found him in the hospital in ICU. Apparently his cancer had returned with a vengeance, he had pneumonia, was anemic and suffering from malnutrition. I was asked to keep this to myself until he became more lucid and could make a decision on rather of not I should let folks know of his condition. Unfortunately, I received an email this morning informing me that he passed away last night around 9 PM. I know that so many people that I have come to know online have just seemed to fall off the face of the earth and not knowing what became of them has haunted me. So I wanted to let those of you who knew and loved Gary that he is creating his wonderful artwork from above and I am sure is smiling down on all of us. I will be doing a feature on his works of art when I find my composure. As for now, I am truly grieving the loss of a true and steadfast buddy.

I made an unscheduled trip to the hospital Oct. 23.

It seems my body doesn’t want to function without any oxygen. BP shoots up to 150/90, pulse tops 130 bpm. Sooo...
now I am breathing air from a can. Think of it this way, how many people will only drink water from a bottle!

I will be on oxygen for the rest of my life, but at least I will have life this way. I have started the disability claim as there is no way I can exert myself even with the oxygen tank. At least I have my music, I can still play and surprisingly sing better than I have for a long time.

All the best, Reppiks

Please join me in wishing he well.

Love ya, Skipper and miss your corny jokes! Get well, my friend!
