[And on the 3rd day… well, DC is still with us — see the comments! — TG]
Today, Saturday May 15 is when our pal Scissorhead Dennis Cole has his wake. We’ve been trading emails this week and on May 10 he said 5 more days, so… Guys if my math is correct (and that’s always dicey), well, today is the big day.
My guess is that he’s not going to be commenting, BUT he might be reading. I hope he’s reading. I have faith (¡GASP!) that he’s reading. (True thing, and maybe a bit Irish: I’m always jealous when someone get the definitive answer to Life’s Ultimate Question, and true to form, Dennis gets there first, the bastard!)
DC I hope you know you’ve always been Aces with us, and we going to miss you terribly.
I know all of us on the internet are bits and bytes and flickers of light, but somehow that makes an absence all the more real. It’s stark when a light blinks out.
I’ve told some of my IRL friends about Dennis and how he’s large and in charge of his own destiny. I hope I have the same dignity when my time comes, and thanks to DC, I now have a roadmap.
Happy trails, DC, until we meet again.
