    I'm so sad to hear this news. Esav was one of the first members I interacted with when I found BF in 2008. He was always patient and kind to the new members who made misteps, and had a FANTASTIC sense of humor.

    Rest easy ESAV, and thank you for all the knowledge, wisdom, kindness, and humor brought to [email protected] BF.
    I will miss you dearly kind Sir. :(

    Never interacted directly with Esav, but I've read many of his posts when I've been lurking.

    Truly a loss.

    Sad news. I didn’t know the man, but he could shut down a thread with class.

    RIP Ed.

    To family and friends: Our hearts are heavy, and words will not lighten the weight. And what is written is written, but let it be put down that we grieve with you (from Roger Zelaszny's This Immortal). :-(

    I am truly sorry to hear of Esav's passing. Stunned, really. I had the pleasure of directly interacting with him several times over the years, and he was the first person I communicated with when I joined back in 2013. It's a bit hard to think of BladeForums going on without him as he was such a constant kind, wise and fair presence here.

    RIP Esav... prayers for you and your family, Sir. You will be missed.

    I learned quite a bit from readings Esav's posts, mostly on problem resolution and how to comport yourself.

    His wisdom will be missed greatly.

    אֵל מָלֵא רַחֲמִים שׁוֹכֵן בַּמְּרוֹמִים, הַמְצֵא מְנוּחָה נְכוֹנָה עַל כַּנְפֵי הַשְּׁכִינָה בְּמַעֲלוֹת קְדוֹשִׁים וטְהוֹרִים כְּזוֹהַר הָרָקִיעַ מַזְהִירִים אֶת נִשְׁמַת פלוני בן פלוני שֶׁהָלַךְ לְעוֹלָמוֹ, בַּעֲבוּר שֶׁנָדְבוּ צְדָקָה בְּעַד הַזְכָּרַת נִשְׁמָתוֹ, לָכֵן בַּעַל הָרַחֲמִים יַסְתִּירֵהוּ בְּסֵתֶר כְּנָפָיו לְעוֹלָמִים, וְיִצְרֹר בִּצְרוֹר הַחַיִּים אֶת נִשְׁמָתוֹ, ה' הוּא נַחֲלָתוֹ, וְיָנוּחַ בְּשָׁלוֹם עַל מִשְׁכָּבוֹ, וְנֹאמַר אָמֵן:

    God, full of mercy, who dwells in the heights, provide a sure rest upon the Divine Presence's wings, within the range of the holy, pure and glorious, whose shining resemble the sky's, to the soul of Ed Hausman for whom charity was pledged to the memory of his soul. Therefore, the Master of Mercy will protect him forever, from behind the hiding of his wings, and will tie his soul with the rope of life. The Everlasting is his heritage, and he shall rest peacefully upon his lying place, and let us say: Amen.
