I just came across an exchange between Reyn and Edgar, and I have to say those two are some of my very most beloved people here. The bantering they get into together always makes me smile, and I really like that two of my favorite people get such a kick out of each other too... Three people came to mind immediately the first time I saw this thread, and two were Edgar and Reyn (Osso was the third; that's going to take a whole 'nother post
Edgar reminds me of my dad in a way-- his job sounds similar to my dad's job, and the way Edgar talks about the people whose houses he works on, very respectfully and kindly, is a lot like my dad too. So that's part of why I love Edgar so much. But also I love his writing; he's written some posts about his life and his outlook that have affected me deeply. There's no one here I respect more. It amazes me the things he's been through in his life, and what a good person he became out of a life that hasn't been easy...I'm just glad to have had a chance to know him at least a little.
Reyn is another person here who always brightens up my day, because I love his sense of humor and his little quips...I know he's like me and reads much more than he posts, so when he does post I'm always so happy to see that he's around. He's one of those people that you just KNOW you'd like in real life... a kind, funny, smart person. I just like knowing that there is Reyn out there in the world.
