Long time member, infrequent poster rjk has died.

I don't know how many people here will know him, but he did post here.

We met on this board in 2000, at the first Vegas Dopefest. He embodied much of what is good on this board - intelligent, a wide variety of interests, and a twisted sense of humor. But especially, a great, accepting, and kind heart.


Thank you to Cecil Adams and this board for bringing us together - he was the best thing in my life. The 18 years I had with him are by far the best years of my life.

Damn! He and I shared a love of ginger beverages. I'd recently recommended a non-alcoholic ginger cordial to him. I will miss him.

My condolences on your loss. I know your time together was too short, but it sounds like it was wonderful and I'm glad you have those happy memories.

Ugh. I had his body donated to medical research, and didn't go with a traditional funeral arrangement. Which left it up to me to get the obituary to the paper, and I haven't done that. Most of the people who would care knew about it because I let them know in person or through facebook.

Thank you StGermain. Grief is making me ditzier than usual (and it's hard to search for his name, too). I've reported this
