A man who has uplifted and supported others,
A man of words and deeds.
A soldier, a sailor, a patriot,
He touched us all in some way.
Earning the friendship, love, respect and admiration of us all,
And more than a few accolades along the way.

His writing ranged from exceedingly beautiful prose,
Chilling and beautiful stories,
To the loftiest formal and the silliest of poetry.
His friendship and encouragment were unending for his Fellows at the den.

Though his fate is still unknown,
I'm sure he's smiling with a cold Coors somewhere.
Know you are still in our thoughts and prayers,
Reminding us of our own mortality.

I for one will never forget you,
And aspire to be the kind of man you are.
We miss you Brother Edvard,
Sir Georg.

2010 Walt Hardester

I'm glad you posted this. I'd heard you was not well but didn't know he passed on... He was a most gracious poet and AD member who was kind to me when many here ignored me. And he had a wonderful sense of humor and attitude. He was not afraid to stand out of the crowd. A great writer And wasn't he Native American or something as well as a war vet?

Walt, your tribute to Georg expresses the feelings and emotions of your fellow den friends. Georg is a unique individual. A patriot and as you so ably note, a friend to all. It is the uncertainty regarding him that grips me with sadness. He has inspired everyone of his readers in the den. I wish him peace and love wherever he is. Your words are a stark reminder of the frailty of man and mankind Walt. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Bless you, Walt. We hope and we pray... and we miss and we hurt. Silence can be so brutal yet his presence lingers and his words can never be unheard. His spirit is ever with us all. Thank you for articulating so beautifully what is constantly knawing at the heart of our family consciousness. xx

I have not been on the den often, but I do wonder where he is and if he is o.k.

Walt, this makes me cry, I miss him so terribly, it's the not knowing is what drives us all crazy...

I still feel him, and I send him good thoughts and positive energy, but no word is just killing me..

Lovely tribute, I cannot bring myself to do that...
God Bless you,
Peace, love and light,

We miss our old Brother Edvard very much. I only wish his spouse would get back to me, and let me know what's become of him. Absolute silence since August.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 12/2/2010
Yes Walt, he has been on our minds every day too and each day we continue to pray for him. There is such a silent void here on the den and all we can do is pray for him...

Be always safe,

I definately agree with you on this one as I am sure all den members who knew Georg would as well. We may not know where he is or how he is doing but we all agree that he is missed...
