I was going to ask if you knew him - I thought we'd determined at some point you did (I really don't know all that many furries).

I knew him in extreme passing. he had shown up at our WPAFW event but i do not spend a lot of time mixing at that event. especially saturday night after the auction. i am often exhausted then.

I have seen pictures of him and remember him slightly. really nice guy.

and again for me it is sitting here not "personally" affected but yet still deeply hurt for those who feel his loss. Like last year when Duke Sir Morgan i think (i am so bad with names) died. it was some duke i know that much. and everyone knew him and was devastated. and everyone assumed i knew him because i have been in the SCA forever. yet if i knew him it too was only in passing.

these last few weeks have been filled with death. all sudden and unnecessary most recently Kyr's mom and now Furp. before that others i know lost family and dear ones.

i have been tempted to make a post about how odd it is to see half my friends list mourning and in severe pain and the others going on with such normal minutiae and little dramas. one sometimes thinks of them (or at least i do) as being all in the same room sometimes and it makes me crazy that the others would be so callous towards the others. but they are not. they know nothing of it.

I have lost a lot of close people to me so i know how much it hurts. and i am so so so sorry for those who knew him and were close.

That kind of sounds like a story, but especially given what just happened, I'm not sure it's one I should be asking about.

So, I'm curious, but I won't ask.

It's fine. We met at ConJose in 2002 and were both involved in San Diego fandom. He was good friends with ben_raccoon and harlkyn, who I met shortly thereafter. I've always considered all 3 to be really good friends, even though we haven't seen much of each other since all of us but Ben left the area and went elsewheres.

Ahh...I knew Furp online for many years and got to hang out with him for a bit at a con here. It wasn't a wild time or anything, but I've always remembered it.

He will be missed.

Feb. 20th, 2009 04:02 am (UTC)
Fly me to California to be with the two friends I need to be with right now?

(No, but thank you for the offer. You're very kind.)

i wish i could....
Feb. 20th, 2009 04:06 am (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear it.

You knew this person too? I heard from one of my Support people, rebelsheart. Small world.

Furp knew *everyone*. It became pretty routine that any con I went to, I could tap somebody on the shoulder and say, "Hey, you seen Furp around yet?" and more often than not, they'd be able to say yes or no.

Well, I didn't mean to suggest by my comment that I knew this person. I am always surprised when someone turns up in common with people who I wouldn't think were associated.
Feb. 20th, 2009 06:17 am (UTC)
Whoa dang. That dude's reach went even farther than I thought. Small world indeed.
