Re: Kim's memorial


Thanks for writing up something about Kim's memorial for the list.

I have been slammed with work since then and (insensitive lazy butt that I 
am) I let it slide.

It was good to exchange a few words with Violet and Kim's parents.

I'm sure they will be feeling the loss for a long time.

But Kim lives on in his legacy here at Loopers Delight and in the EDP he 
helped create.

It was great to drive down from Oregon and hang with you, Rick and you 
lovely wives as well.

See you in October (I hope).

  I have been so busy and so much in my own world lately that I forgot  
to share my experience attending Kim's memorial, August 14th. Ted  
killian, Rick and I attended the memorial at the Lawrence Hall of  
Science high in the berkley hills.  We arrive painfully late due to  
work commitments, but were able to meet and interact a bit with  
members of his family and friends. It was completely fogged in with a  
strong steady wind,  very eire when one ventured outside, as if the  
spirits were hurtling past you.  It was good to connect however  
briefly and share some experiences  with Kim's mom and dad, and there  
was even some levity at the end with people playing with the  
interactive exhibits, the highlight for me being a ride on the roller  
coaster simulator. Later we repaired to a favorite bar of Kim's and  
Violets to share a few beers and listen to the house band play, and   
cover  Wish You Were Here in Kim's honor.  There were no dry eyes in  
the party. I hope everyone will buy a copy of Violet's download if you  
haven't already, she is trying to keep this great site going and needs  
our help.
