With all this gentle memorializing I was wondering when it would occur to some of his afficianadoes here to cut & paste
some of their favorite posts of this well-remembered soul
so that others can may enjoy what made him so memorableand so dear to y'all.
Just quote the passages of the humor & poetry of the man from whence he was among you and let his own "best" words continue to breathe life into his signature character.
I'll quote a line from dearly missed master artist Jimhensen's favorite filmwork,"The Dark Crystal" in defining what written words are: " Writing is words that stay".
I leave you with this gentle suggestion.
