Friends, readers, bloggers, Twitterers, Ryan Lawrence:
We are gathered here tonight to honor the memory of a great friend. A true hero; a revolutionary. A legend. We're all sad that it had to end this way, but perhaps this is the way it was meant to be. I'm not much for mushy speeches, so I'll leave you all now, and simply request that you prominently display this patch in loving memory of our shorn compatriot.
