note I'm French so I will try to do my best with English.
There is a saying "behind great man there is a great woman", and it s the case with Ronnie and you, like the Ying Yang symbol Wendy was in Ronnie, and Ronnie in you. This chemistry is the symbol of love and respect for each others and for us the fans. Ronnie is (I cannot use the past, for me he s still with us, in our hearts, memories) for fans a friend, a brother, sometime a father (lots of people wrote great things about the way they feel their relations between Ronnie and them).I never met Ronnie or Wendy personally, but everybody told me the same thing, kindness, love , respect. He's the symbol of what a GOOD person is, and if we do the same, the world will be better.
Yes he's gone, he left his body to reach a higher level, where he can be with all of us and like he said in concert I stay with you,...you and all of youuuuuuuu. I believe his words. We all lost people so we can imagine how hard it is for Wendy and the family and friends, that s why our support for Wendy is so important. It's important today, and it will be in the future too.
Some people are sad, others are angry because he's gone and it s ok, but we must cherish the fact that we were lucky to know him and to share his love in each concert, there is a great saying that summarizes well the situation "where the caterpillar sees death, the human sees a butterfly" and with Ronnie (like someone says on the forum) he's an Angel. In sad time, there was always one of his songs that cheered me up and it will continue.
Yes he lost the battle with cancer, but the war is not over we must help people and there is a simply way, giving money to scientists to find a cure, we are millions of fans, imagine just 1$ each could make a huge difference. I saw on ebay people who tried to make money on his death, like scavengers they sell Ronnie's stuff 10 times the price. If you're fan, do it the way Ronnie would do it. Donít waste your money on them but encourage people on donation for the RJD Cancer Fund.
I know that there was supposed to be a new store with old stuff (from holy diver to dream evil ), so when it will be ready (we must give time to Wendy and the family) I think it would be a good idea to increase the price for helping the RJD cancer fund. So donít waste your money on ebay (with unofficial sellers) they CHEAT US.
I would like to thank Wendy for what she did for Ronnie and for us, letting us know private moments was great because it s like a huge family we couldnít be there with them but with news on the website it was like we were there sharing the good news and bad news. I know Wendy is a private person but thanks for what you shared with us.
It s not easy for me to write my feeling (it s harder to express them in another language) but I tried to do my best.
Thanks Ronnie and Wendy for what you have done, do and will do for us.Dear Wendy
