If roses are
a gift from God,
What, then, is the thorn?
Is it a reminder that
We must be re-born
To touch the hem of Jesus' cloak
And live eternal life,
That we may smell the rose's scent
And rise above earth's strife?
Walk, then, in the garden now
And take Divine Love's hand
So that all together we
May meet in God's sweet land.
B M Morris
Boxer's Silverfoxes Clubhouse
He will always be in my heart
and from everyone that knew him.
Thank you for all the warm letters and support. -Ron

Family. Ben was a man that I
admired and felt that I got to know thru his site and the
many messages to others as well as the thoughtful stories that he occasionally sent along to all of us,
his many anonymous friends.
All of us that he touched will miss his dedication and the pleasure that that he always managed to send along over the net. Singing onto the net and collecting waiting messages was always something to look forward to.
We will surely miss his "Hee, hee's!"

The news of th death of Brock Morris has shocked and saddened me. I never met him personally but he was a good friend and he enriched
my life. When you were mentioned in anything that he wrote it was obvious that he appreciated you very much. I write to you to thank you for being there for him and for adding happiness to the last years of his life. I wish you much strength to carry on.
9#Michael Hooveremail@example.com--September 3rd 2001#I was so very sorry to hear about Brokman's passing. Having lost my lover 4 years ago I know the sadness you are facing. Although I only got to know him through the lists and our lunches in the Bay Area I felt him a true friend and will miss him. He was a warm, frienly and generous person who I am sure will be missed by all who knew him.
I hope, Ron, than you will keep in touch. I had invited both of you down to my home in Palm Springs as soon as it was finished and that invitaton is still open. Please feel free to call on me at anytime you feel you need someone to talk to or just want to hear a friendly voice.
Please do not feel obligated to respond to this note. I know you will have many people writing and I know that your thoughts are with me as mine are with you. Write when things settle down a bit. I remain your friend. Hugs Michael Hoover

never met him but I know he was 100percent pure "human being" and was well
loved by each and every one of us.
I felt real sad tonight when I read it, we'll never read his smart
little remarks again, and those of you that were lucky enough to meet
him and know him personally feel probably feel as though you yourselves
have lost your partner.
May his soul rest in peace, someday we'll all meet him again..

52#Tom Forestieri#Gaetano813@aol.com--September 3rd 2001#Ron,
A true gentleman. That is what I thought of Ben (Brockman). A man with a vast worldly intelligence who wanted only one thing, for us to be kind to one another. Brockman allowed me an opportunity to be in touch with the world in a way I never thought possible. He gave this "Santa" a chance to get 'cuddled' by an enormous amount of people, especially he himself.
His passing is a great loss to us here on Earth but most assuredly a bonus to those in the afterlife.
He is already sorely missed.
Goodbye Ben, I loved you.

firstname.lastname@example.org--September 3rd 2001#On sunday morning August 26th, 2001, the sun had rose so beautifully. Even though this day turned very sad. An overwhelming feeling of loneliness and emptiness filled my heart. For I learned that I lost a very special friend earlier that morning. Brocky, who's loss has proven very painful to me. A friendship which will not simply be replaced.
I went to the coast on this day, arriving about a half an hour or so before the sun had set. As I sat in my car alone staring out at a brilliant yellow sun, I spent this time to remember Brocky. I recalled when we had first met, in 1996.
Brocky became so important in my live. It may have been his unconditional friendship or the things we had in common or maybe the combination of the both. But whatever it was, it was very important to me.
And as I watched the sun go from a brilliant yellow to a deep rich orange as it made it's final journey into the ocean that evening, I said goodbye to my friend, the friend whom was always there during the short time we knew one another, the friend whom had done so many things for me, the friend who I will always miss. I said goodbye to Brockman Morris. And on this site, together, we say goodbye to Brockman Morris.

76#Albertfirstname.lastname@example.org--September 3rd 2001#Dear Ron
Those we hold most dear
never truly leave us.....
they live on
in the kindness they showed,
the comfort they shared,
and the love
they brought into our lives.
My prayers and condolences are for Ben's partner Ron, as Ben's has them real-time now.
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay other day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss; Ah yes, these things, I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seems all to brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.
email@example.com--September 3rd 2001#you will be sadly missed and forever in our thoughts...to Ron, he made a great impression on all those he met, he touched all our hearts in ways that would have been impossible for lesser mortals, my thoughts are with you at this time.

Death be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy picture be,
Much pleasure, then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy, or charms can make us sleep as well,
And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
one short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.-John Donne

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. As Ben Boxer, Brockman Morris brought a lot of good humor, warmth, and pleasant times to many of us, some of whom have few avenues of light. He was truly a special gift, and his place will be kept fondly in our hearts. Please take care and know that there are many, many people who care about you.

Like so many of us who write, we never knew Brock in a personal sense. We wish we had. I hope you can obtain some warmth from the messages we all offer. Be as strong as you can and remember two things. Firstly that the only certainty is that the sun will rise tommorrow and that all you have to do is remember to breathe. We are not sure about God but whoever, wherever & whatever he may be, we hope he watches over you. Love & Hugs Bob & John.

Thank you Ben, you will be missed.
139#Brian Baker (Koala Bear)#email@example.com--September 4th 2001#I am very upset by this sad news. For me, it is like a bolt out of the blue. Brockman's (Ben's) site gave men that shared a common ground the forum by which to discuss topics, engage in debate, provide help & direction, find fellowship and friendship.
His contribution to "gay cohesion" is greatly valued and will be sadly missed. I hope that his site can still, in some way, continue to provide this important link to those in the global gay community. I'm sure that such a challenge would befit Brockman's (Ben's) valuable contribution.
I only hope that there is someone as determined as our belated brother Brockman (Ben) out there, who will take up this challenge. His work is important.

Ron, I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you also, for letting us express our sympathy for him, and our true feelings for this remarkable person.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West.
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Without your personal help, I would have lost my friendship with Hilly Minx forever and suffered unbearable regret and sadness of losing such a wonderful e-mail friend in the rest of my life which caused by obvious misunderstanding. For others' happiness, you have taken up your valuable time and lot of energy tried to help, to give. You are really a unselfish man. You are my angel... "
I miss you dearly, Ben !
