It’s with a very heavy heart that I must inform all my friends that my dear, dear Davyd took his own life, probably sometime yesterday. Davyd had struggled with various psychological issues for quite some time; sometimes better, sometimes worse, but neither I or his doctors saw this coming and it has been a shocking, devastating blow to me, and to our close friends and family. I am already receiving many messages of condolence, so I wanted to go ahead and tell people, so there wouldn’t be rumors and talk and questions.
I cannot begin to express how much I loved this man. He was a genius, an amazing artist, a devoted companion; truly the light of my life, the perfect companion for me, and he made me happy every single day of the ten years we spent together. Ultimately I think he was such a sensitive soul that this world became too much for him. But I was lucky to be with him, in the light as well as the shadow, and I’m only sorry that at the end I wasn’t able to see that he was slipping away from me. I’m still in a state of shock but we will soon be organizing something to celebrate this extraordinary human being and I will post it here when I know. I will miss him so very, very much. He was the best person I ever knew. And on whatever level he can still hear my voice, I love you, Davyd. My love surrounds you on your journey forward and will abide forever.
My heart is breaking for Norman Buckley tonight. Though I only know him through social media he’s always been incredibly kind, and his love for Davyd pours through his twitter, Instagram and tumblr. Please send what good, loving energy you have his way.
