Matt Kaplin 7/23/57-11/27/10

We mourn the loss of half of the Illustrated Rat team. A large chunk of my soul has been taken away.

Dru, My heart shriveled to nothing when I heard Matt was ill. Then if fell out of my chest when I read he had passed. He was a beautiful man with a spirit to match.

Somehow written words just don't feel like they are enough. My heart tells me he is snuggling with ALL the ratties and other pets that went before.

I can't imagine such a beautiful pair torn apart. My heart goes out to you Dru. His work & his actions touched many, & he left such a positive influence on the world for a species so overlooked & under appreciated. His work & spirit will continue to touch the lives of so many, & I pray that there is some comfort in that knowledge.

Anything at all Dru, please say the word. <3
