Jeff, I am so sorry.  My prayers and thoughts are with the nine families involved in the loss of Donna and Jacob.

Thank you Anne, it will be a time for me to be strong for those around me.

I alwasy find it hard to find the right words, when it comes to something like this. It brings back memories and makes it difficult for me to express my heartfelt sympathy.

Please do believe though, that my thoughts are with you, and I feel your pain, and that of those around you.

Thank you as well Pam, I’m sorry it has brought back times you had faced and put to rest. I’m the strongest in the family at times like this. As the baby it became a normal part of life as I grew up, my siblings and younger friends are the ones who will have to lean more on others.

Jaderail - 14 October 2012 05:19 AM

Big Downer Alert!

It is a sad time for all of us here in this part of the grove. Nine families, all within walking distance of my house, were touched by a loss in the family yesterday. We lost two People yesterday, one is in a better place and has been released from her years long fight with several medical issues. Donna will be missed by family and friends, her passing has left a dull place in my heart. I grew up with her and watched her children become young men and women.

We also lost Jacob, my Almost brother in laws (he and my sister are a couple but refuse to marry) youngest son from another marriage. It seems the young man, in his teens, and at least one friend were playing with guns. All I know for sure is he passed away and Brian and my sister are devastated.

I am in shock myself, I have known these people like my own family and think of them as family. May the Lord give them peace and help those here who will need him more now than ever before.

Sorry to hear that Jeff, I’m not sure what else to say except you’re in my thoughts.

You guy’s take care, I’m well. My brother, 17 years plus my senior is not holding up very well. One of the ones I’m going to have to help. He feels things very deeply. Still no word on what the families need or if anyone is thinking about the things that must be done. I feel a bit helpless, by now I could have sent food (Southern thing) or at least spoke with someone so I could make plans and offer my help if needed. My phone has been very quiet for this day. Maybe tomorrow.

Jeff, I don’t know what to say, except… Stay strong for the people who need someone to lean on. And I don’t mean literally lean on. lol

Thanks Jacob, I’m starting to wonder. This is a bit odd for my neighborhood. I feel the need to know who is doing all the gathering of info and family get together’s. I should know by now. The Church should have let me know by this time today. Maybe the fact I’m 90% home bound has slowed things down but I expected a visit from the family (some one) by this time. I pray all is well, and it’s not to much for them to take. I can only pray at this point.

Some brighter news:

I was at an event last night when a girl in her 20s came up to meet me. After the first exchange, she wanted to give me a big hug. Another exchange, another hug. A third exchange, a third hug, and this time…well…I haven’t washed off all the lipstick on my neck and left cheek yet.

That’s never happened to me before. lol

Thank you all, please post some other stuff. I’m having to deal with family (mine) and Daz is my escape right now. I thought It would all be planned ahead by now but it’s not. This will be part of my life until the healing can begin. Until I can help them see the other end of this time and they can see it as well I would much rather, help and chat as we always did

I’m at a loss, why do today’s people, even when it is known, not plan for this? Not dealing with the hard things so the hard times are easier on everyone is one thing I think today’s world has given us. It’s a much different world than I thought.

Can we post WIPs in this thread? I’m hoping to get better at DAZ and 3D modeling, and the only way that will happen is getting feedback.  Here’s a sample of my latest efforts, featuring the Genesis Nano Suit and free environment, sidearm and hair.

Work on your Hand posing. Tip when you have your figure ready with the END pose but other stuff looks a bit off Select that body part, switch your camera view to Perspective and do the Center on Selected thing, then zoom in and start editing. You are using a camera that will not move your Render camera and you can get close enough to edit everything just the way you want it. The Center on Selected is the Broken Box with the + in it.

I tried to align the gun, but when I tried to rotate it the Y and Z axes both rotated on the Y axis - no matter what I tried I couldn’t make it align the way I wanted.  And with each new body pose, it seemed to get a little further out of what little alignment I had.  Not sure what I was doing wrong. :(  I’ll give your suggestions a try ASAP. smile
