Just before the last "gathering" at our home Senan was telling us over skype that he was unable to make it because he was right in the middle of a round of treatment. The smile on his face as he said "I'll definitely be there for the next one!" will stay with me forever.

Dont put off the important stuff.



Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

With Jediism. No one is coming to save you. You have to get off your ass and do it yourself - Me

I’ve never been one for the spotlight, especially in regards to personal matters. However, Senan deserves better than that. I’m extremely thankful for the opportunity to get to know him. Working with him has been a huge blessing in my life. It’s going to take a while to adjust to the Temple without him.
Senan was, without a doubt, one of the best of us. Even at his worst, he still gave his best, and he would give it to anyone. Anytime I needed anything, I could ask him. If I ever needed to vent, he was there. If I ever needed a friend, he was an expert. His optimism and his drive were unmatched.
Senan was also a warrior. Every morning he would wake up and fight, tooth and nail. He wouldn’t falter, or quit. His spirit was strong and honorable. Even though life gave him more than his share of lemons, he would smile back and keep on kicking ass. Day after day, he kicked ass. Normal men might have grown tired. Normal men might have lost the faith. Not Senan. Never Senan. He carried his weight, and the weight of those he cared for, until his last breath.
The Temple lost a great knight. His friends and family lost a guardian angel.
We all lost a very dear friend.

Forgive me if this is not allowed, it looks like Senan's family has made a Go Fund Me to help the family. Here is the link www.gofundme.com/in-memory-of-steve-hay

Please donate if you can. I will be doing so soon and have already shared it via my personal FB.

Mods, if this is not allowed, forgive me, edit as you please.

Yes, I believe that will be a good idea as well. I'm glad it's ok to share, they need all the help they can get. I remember Senan talking about just how painful the bills were. Anything we can do to help, I know they will appreciate.

Thank you

Here goes truly a great knight.

I got to meet Senan only three months ago, but we got to share some deep experiences during a most challenging time.

Thank you Steve for your wisdom, insights and good example. We will miss you here.

It's a very gloomy and rainy morning here, in Nagoya... even more so, now that I wake up to this news. Senan and I practically never directly interacted, other than years ago when I first came here to this Temple. But I had always been helped through my multi-layered depressions in my life by many of the things I'd seen him (and others) write on the "community wall"... it's strange, sometimes - how just when you're almost completely enveloped in Darkness, just as it readies to swallow you whole, a single spark of Light can save you from Doom.

He's affected more lives than he may ever know, I suspect.

My heart goes out to his family - may the Force be with them, always... and with Steve.

May the Force, and its Source, be always with us all <3
