The late, great Smart Chic Olena, 1985-2012, rest in peace. This AQHA stallion has offspring earnings topping $ ten million in the reining, reined cow horse and cutting arenas. He sired 54 registered Paint Horses including APHA WC's Made In Montana, Smokin Chic Olena, and APHA RWC Olenas Conductor. Owner Bill Richardson said Smart Chic Olena spent his final months grazing peacefully in the pasture next to his longtime mare friend, Brooksinic.

Grandma, at any age I would never be ready for you to leave. I remember when I was a kid. I dreamt that you died. I woke up and cried because I love you so much and didn't want you to die. The same is true today. I love you and don't know what I will do without you in my life. Rest in peace Grandma. May 12, 1925-January 3,2017. See you in Heaven Grandma. <3

Robert E. Lee, resting in peace....the Lee Chapel at Washington Lee University in Lexington, Va is where he lies. This is the monument to him, however he is actually entombed in the family crypts in the bottom of the building. He is across from his office that he used while President of the University (which was left exactly as it was the day he died...and you cna still see) and also his beloved horse, Traveller, is buried just outside the door...only feet from where he lies.
As of today the web comic Homestuck has officially ended. It has been crazy. I would like to say Thank You to the comic and Andrew Hussie. Homestuck was a significant part of my life and cosplay career. Without it I wouldn't be where I am today. While it became the dark horse of the cosplay community I will always have a soft spot in my heart for it. Rest in peace Homestuck. It's been a wild ride.
