Wow. That was amazing. I'm trying really hard not to cry. That was a wonderful, wonderful tribute to Richard Harris.

Tears are streaming down my cheeks... thank you, that was wonderful. Requiescat In Pacem

Thank you. I was never really sure (and still am not completely convinced) that Richard Harris was the ideal Dumbledore. I suppose we all have our own ideas on that. He was a great actor. I am too young to have seen him in anything else, but I've heard about them.
As always, your writing is poignant without being mawkish or soppy.

AHHHHH! I found out about his death one hour and fourteen minutes after he died (without including the time change). I found out about your story while I was on the computer at school, but was kicked off before I could review. So sorry!
It's really good and sad. :-( It just happens that I had started a movie about Abraham right the week before he died.

That was... i can't even *begin* to describe it. I'm just at a loss for words...
Beautiful, gorgeous... I never saw too many movies of Harris's but the few that I saw... they were wonderful. Your tribute to him was great.

That was beautiful. Simply beautiful. It made cry and laugh lightly at some points. It was simply as beautiful as Richard himself and Dumbledore. I cried when I saw the newspaper artical saying he had passed, which I still have. He was a great and wonderful man. Richard and Dumbldore.

A touching tribute, thank you for sharing.
| DarkEmerald chapter 1 . 10/29/2002
What a lovely, sad, timely story, linking Dumbledore with the wonderful actor who portrayed him in the first two movies. Those of us old enough to remember "Camelot," I think, must be especially moved by the passing of Dumbledore.
Thanks, SB, for a cathartic reading experience.

Awwww...This was so-awwwww. It was sad and so...well in the end it was very-well, it's lacking a word. Only "awwww" works. I truely love your stuff.
| Emma13 chapter 1 . 10/29/2002
That was the most touching fic I have ever read. I thank you, and my kleenex thanks you.
| sparrow chapter 1 . 10/29/2002
wonderful story, we truly lost a great man, not only a great actor. Your story is touching and my eyes are still full of tears!

You made me cry.
| Nytd chapter 1 . 10/29/2002
This was a wonderfully thought-out and written tribute.
Each character's response seemed to be appropriate for that person. Even Snape. I truly believe that Dumbledore's passing would be one of the very rare things ideed that could reduce the man to tears.
And as for myself, I was induced to shed a few myself by the time Harry stood up.
Being an 'older writer' myself, I was fortunate enough some years ago to have nearly front row seats to see Camelot, and will remember Richard Harris fondly as Arthur and Dumbledore.

*sigh* What can I say?
The piece was wonderful; truly, truly sad. And as for Richard Harris... Even sadder. Like VoyICJ said, a part of Dumbledore died with him. He really helped me creating a lovely image of the character. *smiles sadly* No, I don't think that that image can be replaced very easily.

This made me cry.
The eulogies delivered are just my idea of what I'd like to be said when it's my time. Of course, since I'll be lying in a box I wouldn't be able to hear it, right? Wishful thinking on my part that I'll be remembered as fondly.
Oy. Now I've gotten morbid AND wistful. Not a good combination.
A wonderful tribute to one of my favorite characters in canon and fanon.
