So long, Mr. Buckles. May you find peace.

Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

It's extremely sad to see generations fade. Just a few years ago the last survivor of Titanic died.

Exactly what I was going to say.  It's a little frightening to see history's survivors die--it's important to have a physical reminder of these huge events--not just being told about them.  It was more real to hear about World War II from my grandpa--who actually served--then to read about it in a history book.

Rest in Heaven, Mr. Buckles.  You'll be at peace with your fellow soldiers.

And a small piece of history fades away. RIP.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!
