Afternoon Fellow Dragon Laffers.
I cannot, in good conscience, call this a particularly good afternoon. You see today I have the saddest duty I have had to date when it comes to Dragon Laffs, making a post reporting a death of a family member. On Friday, Impish received notice that one of his younger brothers, who had just turned 50, had unexpectedly pass away.
This was what I was referring to when I said Mr. Murphy had hit Impish pretty hard in explaining my standing in for Impish yesterday.
Understandably Impish is extremely occupied with family matters at this time and in no mood to be humorous at the moment.
I’m sure you join with me in extending your support and condolences to Impish for his great loss.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek, and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light~. Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live~ John 11:25 KJB
We give our loved ones back to God
And just as He first gave them to us and did not lose them in the giving,
So we have not lost them in returning them to Him
For life is eternal,
Love is immortal,
Death is only a horizon
And a horizon is nothing but the limit of our earthly sight.
Rest in Peace Stanley, brother of my friend and therefore my friend and brother as well.
I trust you will all understand and agree when I say there is no humor today. I’m not feeling particularly humorous and the passing of somebody’s loved one is never a cause for laughter but rather somber reflection on the frailty and fleetingness of life. I’ll be back with our regular edition tomorrow.
