Mixed Emotions

I was never the biggest JDF fan in the world. His online antics over the past few years had soured me on him and as a result, I have said some unkind things about him in the past. There was even a tag that denoted how I felt about him for a while; a tag that smacked of outright immaturity on my part. But the truth is that while his public persona had always rubbed me, I have never hated the man himself nor thought any less of him as a human being. The man had accomplished quite a bit over the course of his life, made a name for himself, had a loyal following, and was responsible for the popularity of one of the biggest media franchises in the world. While I'd frown on whatever stupid stunt he would pull for attention, I'd never wished ill towards the man.

So to hear that this past weekend, he had taken his own life... I don't know what to say.

I've been thinking about a way to pay some tribute... but right now, I'm still trying to process the whole thing. For now, I can only offer my condolences and prayers to his family and friends.
