Gosh, so sad to read this. When I read Audrey's post letting us know Ian had passed on, I was truly moved. There is a lot of love here. I think he went on his way in good style surrounded by many kind hearts.

Resquiat in Pacem.

I Didnt know him, but knew of him. The friends of my friends are my friends, and it was good to see Charlies friends gather for him. Im glad his suffering is through- ive experienced cancer in my family and know very well the struggles. I feel a loss when those in my own age bracket fall - a piece of my generation gone into the history books. And the older we get the more of these situations we go through. Good on all of you.. And may Ian"s Spirit be where ever he so chooses.

Just a thought - when the time is right.

Auction Ian's gear to raise money for his family.

That way, Ian, through his gear, will climb for a long long time.

Turned the prayer wheels and banged the gongs and bells at Land of Medicine Buddha today. Very sad that the list of my remberances is getting longer from the Taco.

Safe travels, Ian, you have left behind a long trail of beautifully broken hearts.

RIP Ian. Have some fun climbing in the next world.
My condolences to all his friends and family.
As a survivor of colon cancer, this one is close to home. Another reminder for all of you out there who are over 45 to get checked.

I just spoke with Ian's wife Michelle and she said that at some point she will get on here to thank you all herself, but in the meantime she asked me to let you all know how much she and Ian appreciate all the love and support that has been shown here.

Ian had told her he really felt like you were his people, this is where he truly belonged. He was so inspired by all of you and she let him know you were all inspired by him as well. She spent his last night reading him your messages, and he smiled and laughed and was aware of all of it. She really wants you all to know this, and how much it means to her and meant to Ian, and thanks you deeply.

Bumping for Ian's family so they know I am still thinking of you and praying your days to come are better.

Gone but not forgotten peeps let them know where still here and if you can afford a buck or two throw it to Ian's family to help with the burdens of health care.

RIP, friend I never met. You ran it out to the end. Full value.
Climbing in the desert today, may have a chance to spin the Brutus wheel in person if not, I will soon, and am doing it in spirit.

Jay I hope I get to spin Brutus wheel one day and spin it three times if you would please

Once for Brutus once for Ian and once for Dan O who's passing is just days away on the 23rd if you would.

These are our tribe and to forget them is just plain wrong even if we never shook a hand or shared a rope honor our fallen brothers.
