    Default Blinky's Funeral

    We laid Blinky to rest on Saturday. The service was nice, but short.
    Besides Lee's daughter Sara, his ex-wife Dee and her brother, a couple
    of older online friends were there, as well as a surprise guest of one
    of the AFC-A fellows. Sara read a short poem and then said a few words,
    and then there was some general discussion. Then we went to the grave
    site and watched as the box containing Blinky's ashes was placed in the
    ground.

    After the cemetery, the online friends and I went to celebrate Blinky's
    life over beer, pizza and darts. He did love to shoot darts, and was
    pretty good at it most days. I believe he would have approved.

    Bye, you big friggin' doof. I miss you a hundred times a day.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop throughout. You're the reason that
    Blinky didn't just disappear without a trace, and that many of us were
    able to say goodbye, even if we couldn't do so in person.

    I'm sure he would have. It would have hinged on what pizza though :-)


    I'd never have thought of dart boards at my wake, so thanks for the idea.

    You did good. Blinky would be proud I think, and he was blessed to have
    you for a dear friend. I miss (chatting with) him and his humor, too.
    Pizza, beer, and darts is a good send-off. I did not know he was a
    darts fan - steel or plastic tip I wonder <G>. Knowing Blinky the short
    time I did, I'd guess steel tips

    Thanks for the news. I trust there were enough good eulogies. I only knew
    him (on usenet only) for a short time, but he *did* stand out among the
    one I "met". That is without doubt.
