At the same time I emailed a very close member of the team and this is what has transpired.
Keith Kirkum from Bookweaver was planning to edit the book of the Christ teachings that are still to be unveiled to the Christian community. He worked in the publishing industry as an agent for small publishers, he had also edited books for others.
I met Keith in 2005. Not long after that Keith and I became internet friends, sometimes we had long discussions, he was incredibly supportive of my service and mission in an academic and fun way. One of the great men in my life, one can call him a real man. He was never triggered by anything that I wrote and was supportive of the pure intention. It was a sheer delight to know and share with him has equals in the symphony we call life.
UNSUNG HERO - KEITH KIRKUM
He had a wonderful sense of humor and way of viewing the world. In many ways he is irreplaceable in my life. He was what I termed as one of the ‘A’ team. He had tremendous life experience and was excellent at research, he would often double check my facts in a biblical sense. He was always willing to pick up the baton and run with it, compelled by his heart to do so.
He also supported the truth movement on his website by promoting authors and their works if they had something important to share with the world. Together we would do our best to honor others and their work. I have not been advised whether his life partner, Charlotte will carry on with his website, although it looks like she is going to do so because it is still up and running. Hence the picture of Keith.
After I was cut off and back on the internet again, he emailed me to tell me how concerned he had been that he had not heard from me for so long. He wrote that he had very nearly picked up the phone to make sure that I was alright. That was one of the very last emails that I received from this truly compassionate man.
This is the message that I received today from his life long friend.
I am sorry to be the bearer of sad news. Keith is no longer with us. Four weeks ago he was out kayaking and there was a sudden storm. He was struck by lightning and killed instantly. I am sorry that you were not been informed sooner.
The lightening struck on the 6th of August, 2012 and that was the 'Day of Unique Happening's'.
However, we all know the meaning of ‘lightening’. I know that Keith won't mind me mentioning this, in fact, he would celebrate the truth of it.
The word for ‘lightening’ is BARAQ
Energy is very powerful, much more powerful than most people realize and some of the Obama supporters certainly know how to use it.
At this point I am filled with great sadness, I shall miss him so much, although I know and vision him smiling and happy. He is pleased that I now know why I haven't received any email responses from him recently.
Keith is one great soul that had lived an amazing life outside of the norm. Keith is the one that shared with me of how when he was trekking through the outback of Afghanistan during the 1970's, the tribes there, were still speaking of the holy man that came to them from Israel.
Love beyond measure, feelings of love indeed. The ‘B’ side, the song ‘This world today is a mess’ would also resonate with dear Keith. In the song it asks us not to do as they do. In other words to not retaliate for what has been done. I know that Keith knew some very powerful spiritual people, so I hope that they get this message.
Rest in peace dear friend, always in my heart.
A couple of other people who are close to me, know that I wrote to Keith yesterday about the book that he was waiting to edit. Hence, I received a reply delivering the sad news.
I know in my heart that Keith will still be with me in Spirit, he was absolutely committed to what has to be done and especially to the building of New Jerusalem. His dream and plan was to live and work there in financial freedom doing the will of the LORD. He referred to it has living in the 'fruit basket' where food is free.
He was a righteous soul indeed, and one that cannot be replaced in my life. He was totally unique in his commitment to the divine plan. Keith the unsung hero. However, I know in my heart that if Keith had a choice, he would choose to go suddenly and without any illness or pain. Love beyond measure to his life partner and family at this time. I am thinking of you and my heart goes out to you.
I don't know whether the song 'Feelings' was special to Keith and Charlotte, only they know that. That is between Keith and his lady, and I am sure he will stay close to her at this time. She will feel him around her, I know that.
However, the 'B' side of the song 'Feelings' was released during his days of traveling. Here is the 'B' side. 'This world today is a mess'.
The above song also warns you about those that bang on doors with a prayer, and as we know Mormons do that, door to door. Big message for the USA.
Just like there are two sides of a coin, there were two sides too Keith, 'One side is purity personified and the other side is all knowing'. from 'Sacred Words'.
Last night I also received this message while I was painting the mountains. 'There is something hidden in the story, and the only person that knows about it is you'. That made me ponder more on the whole story that is to be shared. I am sure that the impact of Keith not being here in the physical realm will really sink in during the next few days. So please forgive me, if I am absent, Keith was a close traveling companion in this last phase of the journey, and men like him who come to the aid of the holy ones, are rare in this day and age. A rare man indeed, and one that will live on has a saint with the Christ, I am sure.
Thank you for being my friend Keith, thank you for your unwavering support through a difficult time.
Thank you for the color and all of the laughs that you brought into my life.
Thank you for staying close and especially for being you, she made it through.
