Our Favorite Prankster...|
Well Mick, it's been a little over a year since you left us so suddenly. It's been a long and very painful year, made tolerable due to the love and support of my family, and those who we called our friends, Cindy, Colin, Carol, and Christy. All of us miss your zany, totally out of this world, sense of humor. But most of all, we miss the warm, kind, and compassionate man who was dear to us. The man who would help a friend, even a stranger, in any way he could. No matter the cost or the work, you were always there to lend a hand.
And a word to those who would still use Mick's death as a way to "hurt" or make a cold jab at me, you are totally unworthy of the dirt he would wipe off of his shoes. Mick was more of a human being than any of you could ever hope to be. To use his death as a means of going after me for your sick and twisted perversions is sick. All you have succeeded in doing is proving that indeed, Mick was, and always will be, the better man. Don't forget, I knew him, the human being, you fools only knew him as Techno who was only having fun. Like I said, Mick was the better man, those of you who were cold to him, and now, who use his death as a means to get at me, are nothing.
Mick, you will always be in my heart, and in the hearts of those who knew you and loved you. Our lives go on, but, there will always be that void because we terribly miss our Sweet Prankster who could make us laugh like nothing else with his crazy jokes. Rest in peace Mick, and remember, we all love you.

For Mick – The Technomage
Why? Was this the only way? Was your pain so deep and unreachable? No clues, no warnings, suddenly you are just gone. What was the final straw? Your brother? Guilt that was not yours to bear? Was it the nasty bastards on the boards who couldn’t see past their own perverse need to hurt, blinding themselves to another in need of compassion? Why, Mick? FUCK! We were always just a phone call away, or an email, an SOS on a board, something, ANYTHING! Don’t you understand that Technomages just don’t die? They are special, they are MAGIC!
This hurts, Techno, this hurts like hell. Not even a good-bye. You didn’t even give us the chance to say, “Good-bye, Bud, we love ya.” No more ramblings on the boards from The Technomage. It’s too hard to grasp that there will be no more of your endless, and sometimes confusing, thoughts. Then every now and then you would surprise us with something so simple yet so deep, so full of common sense and the feelings of true compassion for others. When you wanted to be funny you did a damn fine job of it. But this isn’t funny. This is the most unfunniest thing you’ve ever done. Aww, Fuck, Tech, why didn’t you just call? Why do I keep hearing the same thing over and over, running through my mind like a mantra…”Who turned out the damn light?”
Good-bye, Bud, we love ya.
Colin & Cindy

They hurried here, as soon as you had died, Their faces damp with haste and sympathy, And pressed my hand in theirs, and smoothed my knee, And clicked their tongues, and watched me, mournful-eyed. Gently they told me of that Other Side- How, even then, you waited there for me, And what ecstatic meeting ours would be. Moved by the lovely tale, they broke, and cried.
And when I smiled, they told me I was brave, And they rejoiced that I was comforted, And left to tell of all the help they gave. But I had smiled to think how you, the dead, So curiously preoccupied and grave, Would laugh, could you have heard the things they said.
“Death is nothing at all ~ I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.”
By: Henry Scott Holland
“I just want you to know that through all these times, I’ll think about you And I’ll be with you.
Death may seize many around us And so darkness seems to surround us, But since there is always a light, I’ll be with you.”
Damn, Buddy, what can we say? The usual condescending bullshit like, “It’ll all be okay,” “He’s in a better place,” or “You must get on with your own life,” just doesn’t cut it and we won’t insult you or Mick’s memory by blathering such inane comments. The truth is that you hurt like hell, probably like you’ve never hurt before. No, it won’t be all better soon, the pain won’t just go away, and as far as we are concerned there is no better place for Mick than by your side. Your grief is your own, it’s your right, don’t let anyone tell you different. Cry, scream, cuss, whatever, just get it out because to hold such pain inside will only hurt more. If you are angry accept that also as being a normal part of grief. Feel no guilt. We’re angry. Hell yes, we are angry! We’ve lost a damn fine friend, a good, loving and compassionate man. We also have a wonderful friend who is hurting, grieving and probably feeling very alone and frightened, a kind-hearted friend who has lost the love and light in her life.
Accept your grief. Embrace it. Just remember that we are only a phone call away. If you need to escape our home is always open to you. If you need to talk, at any time, day or night, call. We can’t take your pain away but we can share it. We can’t put your world back to the way it was be we can give comfort and a warm, loving place to stay, to seek peace and solace. Just say the word, Buddy, and a bed will be ready for you.
All our love and sympathy,
Colin & Cindy
As partners in Magik, seekers of the truth
In candlelight, kept secrets, many emotions shared....
Darkness ever lurking, never finding youth
Always watching moontides, waxing, waning and
Time passed us too quickly my friend our hearts still intertwined
But your passing has kept us together, magik soul mates for all time
Tao says, one veil from daylight..a shadow step away...forever in our lives..our hearts
You left behind your truths, righteousness and
compassion to those who cared
Warrior..You are to me what I've always wanted to be..
You are the magik and the beauty of loves shining and guiding light
"Love as thou will...love with free will," these were your guiding words....forever!
I shall miss you always....a shadow step away
~ Love, Magik~
