As my life progresses, I find a
growing number of close friends and acquaintances are leaving this world "for
their next adventure".
One can barely quell a growing
cynicism about "life on this planet" after what I have witnessed
and wonder that they know something I don't...
following pages is an attempt to cast them into the cultural memory, to
hopefully forever be remembered and appreciated for their unique attributes... and to help heal the pain felt from their passing.
