Its been over 10 years now, you are still missed Blue Ruler.

Post by John Doe » Fri May 23, 2014 1:30 am

Well, its May 23rd and yet again I forgot about Blue's Anniversary.

We lost Blue Ruler in 2004, there are few Villans left at the Ville that actually remember playing with Blue or just chatting with him via ICQ (yep, the internet was a different place 10 years ago too). Blue Ruler put fun and friendship first, serious gameplay second. He was a model Villun, he participated in our events, he tried to make sure everyone had a good time and he bled purple.

Its been 10 years, it doesnt seem that long, I still miss Blue, may he rest in peace.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Blue Ruler, but I can tell from the posts about him that he was a great person who probably impacted The Ville a great deal. I've been connected to The Ville since the TFC days, so I feel connected to Blue Ruler somehow and appreciate your homage. May he rest in peace.

I also never had the privilege of knowing Blue Ruler.
His legacy lives on in the friendship and sportsmanship of our Purple Place.

Thank you, JD, for the reminder.

As someone who lost someone close recently, it is particularly important for me to remember those cherished ones who are no longer with us and to reminisce on the positive impact they have had in our lives.

Domer, You are so right. I'm sorry for your loss, my friend.

So sorry to hear, Domer. My husband lost his father last year and memories are all we have. Talking is hard at first but eventually it is the words and sharing that help soothe the pain of loss.

Blue Ruler sounds like he was a very good hearted person and clearly lives on in the spirit of the Ville. Glad to see that he is still honored and revered here.

Was sitting in my car in the parking lot of safeway on van dorn Street in alexandria while on break eating a tin of tamales in enchilada sauce when my gf at the time called to tell me. Never forget the days prior... he had been missing for longer than was usual... and riding on the constant "resident old man jokes" with Blue I had said "oh no maybe his age caught up"... yeah think before speaking about people.

I remember playing alongside BR. I even still wear my -RBR- tag. Thanks for the post, JD.

I recently found a copy of the funeral program from Blue Rulers funeral, it was faxed to me and is in pretty poor shape but I want to scan it and upload it here for those that remember and still care.


RIP Blue, we still miss you.

and RIP to our other lost villuns, JCom, Triggerhappy and Danno.

Why, I ask you
