The blogging community is shocked once again to learn of another dear friend withdrawing their blog (all for good reason i have to add)... i'm so very sad to hear that the English Gentleman is no more.
It had only been within the last few months that i discovered dear Roper's place and i enjoyed reading his vignettes, his thoughts and opinions. i confess to lurking for some time before leaving any comments and then gradually he became a good friend. i have to thank him so much for helping me through my bad times not so long ago. If you're still reading me Roper, you truly helped me a lot - thank you! i would also add that i am very proud to have written a post relating about you somewhere on my blog, but i'll leave it for my dear readers to guess on which it might be.
Gonna miss you dear Roper.... but i know you won't be far away. Sending you my dearest wishes and hopes that you may return one day.
