I had heard of Rara. I know some of the details of her life where she is imprisoned. I feel VERY UNHAPPY for Rara. Her husband supported her through thick and thin: no marriage vow left upturned and incomplete. Dave is one of those men you could easily define as a “husband” with pride and admiration because my Dad (Abbu) also was that too, a “husband” who would be present through thick and thin and keep all vows and obligations. It may be an everyman dream to be a husband but not every man can be a husband: yet my Father and Dave succeeded in it.
I wonder why exceptional people do leave us early at times. But maybe it is to remind us that they are extraordinary and exceptional; and constellations maybe are sustained by the brilliance of their memories.
I recollect Rara talking before her incarceration about her cats perceiving the forthcoming sadness and react with a depression only felines can know. And how sad she was at their perception of such sad tidings. I can only think about those cats now: how Rara may also be thinking about them thinking of Dave. I think of Rara thinking or just going through blank and all those feelings I know too well and I want to hug her and cry with her because her grief is more malicious and aware and malleable than bars. It will come and go; withstand the unimaginable and will break down at the weight of feathers.
Rara know I am holding your hand. I really hope God Almighty gets you through this…what has happened to you is impenetrably unfair and I hope everyone reading and supporting understand that the unfairness is gargantuan. But the beauty of Rara was that she took unfairness with strides and breaths of justice embodied in her. I think it is important to remind Rara that, that Dave would want her to keep fighting and stay strong. And eventually be comfortable and happy.
Rara you keep on smiling and being you because Dave is still with you and wherever you go Dave’s life will always be with you…Rara we are here for you.
I have terrible news to share with the blogosphere today.
Horrible, no good, awful news.
Many of you knew him as Grayson Queen, author and artist extraordinaire. Perhaps you’ve read one of his novels. Perhaps you’ve purchased, or at least enjoyed, some of his paintings or sculptures… Perhaps you knew that he was also Rara‘s husband, Dave.
I don’t have a lot of details, but I can confirm that Dave passed away earlier this week.
Please share this post wide and far. Please say a prayer for Dave and Rara. Please send her every ounce of spare energy you can muster. She needs us. Dave’s family and friends need us.
And send her mail to show her your love, your RawrLove:

You don’t need to know what to say. You don’t need to say anything…
