I'm not sure how to say this. But because so many people on my list know him, I figure I must. I've never had to do this before, tell anyone something like this, so please bear with me. Yesterday I mentioned in my LJ that I hadn't heard from Rit (koniegeek) and then someone else did as well. Bev noticed I mentioned him and sent me this link - I'm really sorry to inform you all that Rit passed away of severe aneurysm last Friday. (I've just had this confirmed by his maneger)

Rit is the third person I have cried for when they died. I sat here and just cried, and still am. I can't really believe it. I keeping hoping to find somewhere that it isn't true, that it was a mistake. I think of Caleb and his wife... It's horrible. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

It is strange, I was at FansForChrist looking for info on Rit and found that his signature was this -

"The journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it ...
White shores... and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise"

I cried again when I read it.

Rit's office has set up a Memorial Fund for his family. Here is the information if you wish to help out- ISS is also setting up a Memorial Fund for Rit, which will go entirelyto Rit's wife and son. If you are interested in contributing, please
make out a check to ISS and indicate "Rit Kuykendall Memorial Fund" on your checks. Please send your donations to Farrah McGuffie in the HR Dept. here in Atlanta. Farrah will collect the funds and get them to Rit's family on your behalf.
Our address is 6303 Barfield Road, Atlanta, GA 30328

BTW- I'm making this a public entry so others can find out info as well. So if you know some one I don't who knew Rit and would like to help him out, you can link to this journal.
I have Rit's home address and phone number. If you would like to send him a card, leave a comment and I'll give you his address.
