How Can We Say Goodbye? by jazzylemonade How Can We Say Goodbye? by jazzylemonade
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

Yesterday, on the 13th of February 2014,  the short and passionate life of Simon Binks came to an end. Simon lived his life to the full, he burnt hot and brighter than the sun. One of the most talented, craziest, happiest, and loving people I have ever known, and it was my greatest pleasure to have been friends with him as he touched all who knew him. The first photo I ever posted on deviant art was of Simon, and he was the one who put the lemonade in jazzy lemon. I love him so much, I'm crushed, heartbroken and I can't believe I'll never see him again - but just the thought of his laugh can make me smile.

So sorry that another one's gone and another one's gone but at my age they go or I'm gone.  Binary.  Still, your images will remain and they are fantastic legacies, not just records, for your subjects.

He was only 26 years old :tearful: and as the newspaper article says, 'Loved by so many'. Here is the link in case you haven't seen it. www.hulldailymail.co.uk/Family…
And I want to thank you for your kind support for so many years. xxx

Just think how blessed we all have been because you gave Simon a guitar. xxxx
