eBeth - I can't even pronounce most of that, and I'm ashamed to say the closest thing I have in the kitchen is canned asparagus. (shameful)

I do know he was very proud of that accomplishment. He metioned it when we called him in the hospital. Also mentioned plans for a new project he said he was looking forward to getting up and running... Maybe this summer, after he had recovered.

Thank you for keeping in touch. I'm glad Bear and I could call him. I'm glad I had a chance to let him know we love him. And, he said he knew that. He knew we all cared very much for him, and that meant a lot.

Damn...
As a newcomer to these parts I didn't get the chance to get to know Mr. Cav.
I just spent a good while reading some of his old posts. This is indeed a very great loss. My heart goes out to all of you.

At the bottom of the first virtual pub thread , I found this:
"If ya'll look, it's all on the table."

This made me smile through tears.

He was a vital part of my Spontaneous Poems thread. He began a bit awkwardly, but became an accomplished poet, outgrowing that thread and stepping forth in his own right. One of the best compliments I know of for him: he was a poet.

There are many many crazy things
That will keep me loving you
And with your permission
May I list a few

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No they can't take that away from me

We may never never meet again, on that bumpy road to love
Still I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life
No they can't take that away from me

I can't even begin to comprehend the magnitude of this tragic, untimely loss to his family and close friends.

An old thread of cav's just popped up in "new posts." The first page has a post by himself that is hits home right now. So, lacking words of my own, here are his (and Warren Zevon's)...

This one from the last Warren Zevon album gets me going every time. The man knew he was dying of cancer, and his last wish was to just record one more album. This track speaks for itself:

KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART FOR A WHILE
Warren Zevon

Shadows are falling
and I'm runnin' out of breath
keep me in your heart for awhile

If I leave you
it doesn't mean I love you any less
keep me in your heart for a while

When you get up in the morning
and you see that crazy sun
keep me in your heart for a while

There's a train leaving nightly
called when all is said and done
keep me in your heart for a while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for a while

Sometimes when you're doing
simple things around the house
maybe you'll think of me and smile

You know I'm tied to you
like the buttons on your blouse
keep me in your heart for a while

Hold me in your thoughts
take me to your dreams
touch me as I fall into view
and when the winter comes
keep the fires lit
and I'll be right next to you

Engine driver's headed north
to Pleasant Street
keep me in your heart for awhile
these wheels keep turning
but they're running out of steam
keep me in your heart for awhile

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-lo
Keep me in your heart for awhile

Keep me in your heart for awhile...

I knew some of his personal thoughts more than some of my own friends; he spoke his life creatively in his writings. So very versatile and talented: writer, poet, chef, a comedienne and friend to laugh withÂ…he definitely touched my life. It was a pleasure to have known Cav and I will truly miss him.

Thanks for starting this, littlek. Was my first thought, too.

Another way to remember him laughing -- his last post. (One of those things I write but don't believe.)

This is one of my favorite poems that he wrote and also one of his last.

HOARFROST

Fresh falling snow,
each flake unique.

Those lucky
to cling to branches
join the elite order
of hoarfrost,

laughing at their brethren
below, trampled, shoveled,
driven over,
broken down,
salted
(what are we, caviar?)
until each individual
is crushed
into an unreconizable
brown slush.

An unexpected warm day
proves the equalizer.

Oh, thanks for that, colorbook. I think I'll print that and take it with me to the funeral.

Given the snow that's been falling, it's right.

My heartfelt symphaty goes out to his family and
all the people whose life he touched.

He was a very special person.

I don't know what to say, it is such a tragedy.
