I am saddened to learn that Yvsa has left us and now walks the Spirit path. Hs words have enriched many of us here on the forums and will continue to do so.
May his journey continue in peace. Prayers for comfort to Barb and the other members of his family.
It was so strange to read this today and very sad. I don't get on the forums as much anymore and don't participate on Himalayan Imports forum, although I still lurk. Yesterday however, I was searching the web for Khukuri information and pulled up an old post of his with Uncle Bill and Rusty and then when I was looking at a new model on one of the Nepalese Khukuri sites, they had one copied from HI and even called it the Cherokee, with a little different spelling and said it was designed by Ysva. I was wondering if he knew or gave his permission and started wondering if he was still around. My search today on the forum led me to this sad news. I always enjoyed his posts and hate to hear he has passed.
