Sad News

Sadly, Chili Grace passed away last night. I missed knowing him but I know a lot of FNers really enjoyed him. Tributes may be appropriate.

Robert Chili Grace

Friends of Robert/Chili
All of your prayers and loving thoughts have helped him to the end of his journey.
He passed quietly last night. He was surrounded by family these past weeks and was happy for that. He was always waiting for the next adventure, and no matter good or bad he made the best of it. So now it's time to say goodbye to the physical Chili. But he is there, sitting on the beach watching the sun rise, everyday forever.
Hold that thought.

Very sad news
I remember just weeks ago he made a post that he found out he has cancer by accident - he thought he just hurt his rid and went to the doc to check it. Doctors told him he has 4-6 months to live, and said he'll live 6 more months if he goes through chemo. He decided against it and passed away in less than a month. He took the short time he had remaining to meet with his family - I remember the happy post from him when he took his kids to the beach with his ex-wife. He made peace with his destiny and was grateful for the life he had. It takes courage and strength to go like Robert. He was a strong man but also a very talented chopper.
I remember once I've seen a man with such words on his T-shirt "Don't be afraid that you life will some day end. Be afraid that it will never start." Robert had a full life, and he will be remembered and missed by his friends, family, and FNers.

This is modified from an image I had made for Chili about two years ago when he was living in Amsterdam. (he loved chickens) I, like most of you, knew Chili only through FN but was nevertheless quite saddened by his passing. Even given the small amount of correspondence I had with him, I was always left with the desire to meet him in person one day. He showed much strength and courage in passing the way he did and it is clear that his passage was guided by much love and many caring thoughts from all of the souls he has touched along his journey.

.We lost another pair of eyes to see the worlds Hypocrisies,,
We lost the hands that show the world another way to see...
We lost the artists patterns floating in his mind
We lost his gift of future colors and music all combined .~Pree

RIP Chili

All is not lost Preemiememe. He still touches others. My next chop was inspired by one of Chilis Condolences to all who knew him.
