Remembering Calowl- A friends and family memorial
It's hard trying to think of the perfect thing that can express all of that which you feel when you loose a good friend. I was asked to make a short quote for a memorial for Robbie, and I just couldn't do it... I tried my best, and even slept on it for a few nights and I couldn't think of any one thing that I could say...
I had met Robbie in 2000 when my brother and I would often play, we met a great person that we loved playing with, Blakk; he was a great guy and always was willing to help us whenever we had needed it, may it be hunting, trading, or just someone to lean on when we had a hard time and just needed to talk...
I had left Realm in 2002 to never return, but managed to somehow stumble back in 2005 and re-meshed with Blakk as Calowl, although I didn't initially put it together that he was the same person, but his heart soon showed, and then I soon placed the details back together. This was the same great person that I had once known, and I was glad to have him back in my life, if even for a short time.
Robbie and I where trying to piece Keepers of Realm back together, and where having a lot of success in it, we where doing well in our efforts until his passing on April 5th...
A lot of people knew about Robbie and my friendship; in fact, a lot of people who found out about Robbie's passing knew that they had to get a hold of me, and tried to get to me "first" as they've said... Robbie was truly a great friend of mine, and we conversed often (even the night before he had passed). I couldn't believe what I was being told, in fact, I had called several people liars, and demanded proof, and kept demanding it until I was given the proof that I couldn't believe... My best friend had passed, and I had no idea what I was going to do next...
I miss the conversations every night, I miss the jokes, and the constant requests. I miss the just handing around doing just about nothing but watching the time pass; most of all, I miss my friend. Plenty of questions come up, but will I forget? I don't think that it'd be possible; for when you keep someone in your hearts, they will live on in memory forever.
So, can I put into a short quote how I feel about Robbie? I used to think that no I couldn't; but if you've read what I've had to say, I suppose that you could quote me best as saying "I love you Robbie, and we're going to miss you always".
There is a ray of sunshine in my heart
and rainbows in my sky's,
For I have known the joy of love
and it is beautiful.
For what is beauty if not a ray of sunshine
that will live in my heart forever.
Once upon a time, we were good friends on The Realm and I only wish we remained as close at the end. You were a wonderful man, a wonderful friend and above all else a wonderful person who we all couldn't help but love dearly. You will be missed, but I know your spirit will carry on in the hearts of your family and friends - both in real life and on Realm. May you rest in peace, and may your family shed tears only in rememberance of the love you showed others.
Remembering you always..

I had the priviledge of knowing Robbie for the last 14 months here on Realm. We both met while we were still coming up in The White Tower formerly led by Freitag. After a few suabbles over some internal guild issues, Robbie left and started his 1st guild. In TWT, I gave him the stats which eventually became Calowl.
He will be remembered by me and everyone who knew him best as an honest player, who was selfless in all he ever did, revived KoR from the ashes after serious corruption, and dedicated so much of his time to making the Realm a better place for everyone. In this age of selfishness on Realm, where it seems like everyone are all about themselves, Robbie went and was the one who broke the mold and was different. He would gladly give of anything if he had it, invested alot of his own well-earned items, mana, and gold into making Realm better for everyone.
I remember him as always having a smile on his face, always having fun. That is how I wish for him to be remembered. Robbie will be missed by the entire realm community, and by us, his friends. I knew someday Robbie would make it into heaven. I am just saddened by the fact that God took him from us so soon.
I have only know Calowl for a short time, but what I did know of him he was a very loving and kind person. Not only did he help me get started when I first got here to the realm but he was also very kind to me.
When I started the application process to get into this wondeful group of people TheRealEzeIII was origionally my sponser, but because of certain events he had to leave the guild and I had to get a new one and Calowl took me underr his wing with no questions asked!
I was very proud and felt very accepted for him to accept me as his sponsee. Then not to long ago OSWOLT and M00Nbeams adopted me and then he became my uncle. Anyway I was very lucky to have known him the short time that I did, because he was a fabulous and caring and understanding person and always a joy to be around!
Though I smile, and still joke around...
I can not get the thought out of my head...
Like a knife stuck in my back...
That I just cant reach. It's always there...
No matter how hard I laugh or how many times I smile...
The thought just rips me away from the normal feelings.
Grieving and hurt are understatements.
Most of what we all know, or have experienced becomes a memory, but something so horrowing as this...
The pain eats at us...
Makes us more human then ever...
Makes us realize just how reality works. I as a man, I cry... Non stop.
I speak for all of us in this mail. Whether you admit it or not, this is how we all feel.
Maybe deeper than others, maybe not. This is when, I pull all of my friends close...
And even the ones I dont know close to me...
We cant go through this alone...
We all need each others help...
Through the sorrow...
We all hold each other in a way... Mentally...
However you want to look at it, we are all each others shoulder to cry on.
The sorrow turns and holds us, like vines or a snake that does not break it's grasp on us...
Yet we never yeild or surrender.
The pain inflicted will not hold us down or push us back.
With noting but memories and pictures to hold onto, we cry for nothing more.
Restrained by the grief. But that will not keep us down.
We have one another to help us thru this moment, to hold each others hand and cry on each others shoulder.
The light that guides us is a voice, a voice of peace and serenity.
The tears vanish, like magic, and we are held...
Held by something so warm we forget the pain, the sorrow...
And are left with the thoughts and feelings of happiness and joy.
Joy of what we all had before the end.
It is not a dream, tho it would have been better if it was.
Through the tears, we smile, deep in our hearts...
We will never let go of what we have, lost or not.
In loving memory of Calowl (Robert)...
Im not going to talk in past tense because he is still a part of our heart...
He is a loving friend , willing to help anyone in need.
He is a great friend of mine that never has a harsh word to say to anyone or anything.
He is always there when called upon to assist in whatever he is needed in.
Calowl... Keep all of us on the realm in your heart.
Blessed Be bro.
As the moments tick away, I miss our talks. As life vanishs with each sun rise and set, I miss you more. I know there will be a day when I will see you again, and not only in dreams but face to face. Robbie, you were a friend, and I loved you like a brother. "Ashite Aru Wa"... (I love you)
