Condolences – Tributes And Comments

“All I want to say about Jack Riebel, is that to love him was to be loved by him. To see him was to be seen by him. To have deep conversation with him was to better understand the complex nature of the universe. He taught me a lot. I think I told him that. I hope I gave him something. A lot of what he taught me can’t be shared in writing, but you’ll feel it with how I move and speak and laugh because he showed me a little different way, a better, more open way. I also want to let #LadyKat612 Kathryne Cramer know how much I love her, how sorry I am for her loss, and for her to hopefully feel that she has a community who will be there when you’re ready. #thisgirlisinlovewithyou thank you for sharing your love. It is enviable. And Jason DeRusha, I thank Jack for showing us the greatest meaning of friendship. Love you, brother.”
