It is such that so many times a person is not fully realized or revealed until the passing. It was so with Bob for me. Watching those two video was a study. The Flynn fight had been...ages since i had seen that. Viggo felt it a true honour to know and work with him.
It was an amazing life and one to celebrate with gladness. I am sure in the appendices (sure as sand they will be) that a tribute to him will be there. It is a stab to know that he was there working with TH. But you know, he just might have thought that , that if he was to go, it was to be doing something to contribute to a work that shall become 'one for the ages' , because he surely will be:).
''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III
Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
— J.R.R. Tolkien
May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!
In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo
