With this fund, we will decorate the funeral and everlasting memory of Roger "Ralff" White.

Our primary goal is to cover his casket with flowers and a note to his family on behalf of AIE. Should we raise more than we can spend on that, we hope to commission a permanent marker, such as a gravestone or plaque, that briefly tells the world forever how much he meant to us.

(((It has become abundantly clear that we will be able to accomplish much in Ralff's honor, thanks to your generosity. We will keep you all informed as we proceed.)))

With tremendous sorrow, we’ve learned that we’ve lost one of this community’s greatest members: Roger “Ralff” White passed away at his home in Maryland.

To a person, everyone who knew Ralff had a great friend in him. Ralff was, as Scott Johnson put it, “not just an online friend. He was *the* online friend”– someone who was always available and always awesome. In addition to serving the community as a Council Officer since that rank was created, Ralff was a long-time, stalwart member of AIE’s Over the Hill Gang. So long in fact, that when he started, they’d not yet crested the hill. All of AIE sends its warmest condolences to everyone in the Over The Hill Gang, as well as the literally hundreds of people he befriended.

Mainly, and this can’t be stressed enough, Roger was the nicest, most helpful person anyone has ever known. That’s just a fact.

This wonderful, global, online community that he supported every single day … has lost its Ralff.

He is irreplaceable, but we should all try to be like him. You and I and everyone can make the world such a better place by simply emulating Ralff. He was overflowing with unlimited kindness and friendliness. He’s the perfect inspiration for us all.

Never forget that, and he’ll live forever.

Friends, thank you so much.

We've disabled new donations on this campaign, as we feel that we collected more than enough to properly celebrate Ralff's legacy. A suitably boisterous array of flowers from AIE accompanied him from funeral home to gravesite, and we are working out the details on purchasing and installing a footstone, or bench, or raised plaque that will eternally mark his resting place as a monument for this community.

We'll update this campaign again one more time once that project is complete. Please know that it may take many weeks or months.

Again, thank you.
AIE's online wake for Ralff was Feb. 26
