in remembrance

just wanted folks to know that a participant in the bay area wt-no contingent passed away very suddenly this past week. details are still sketchy. he was last seen at the san francisco action last friday, and concerned friends tried to track him down when he stopped responding to emails, phone calls, etc. they contacted a neighbor to check in on him who discovered the body. some community folks came to his home and waited until the cops and coroner took his body. we don't know exactly when or how he passed. the autopsy is being conducted today and i'm sure we'll hear more details in the next few days.

i lived with b for about 6 months in 2004. he was a quiet, quirky person who was also warm-hearted and kind. his taste for art was unconventional, but i liked it. he was a smart dude who didn't show off, was very low-key but knew his biz. he adored his cute niece. this has been my 3rd death this month alone. i am sad that i will be in new york during the memorial service. i just want to stop by long enough to show my face in support, drop off a card, some flowers and a few bucks to help his devastated family. is there a way to be in two places at the same time? guess not...
