I just found out and am still in shock. I have tears pouring down my face and I just can't think of what to say at the moment.

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.


That would be a very nice thing to do Smile

No formal speeches desired, though the deceased will not interfere if someone feels the urge. But keep it all simple and brief. And then a big happy raucous wake. We should have music, gay and lively music. we want bagpipes. And a flood of beer and booze! Lots of singing, dancing, talking, hollering, laughing, and lovemaking. And meat! Beans and chilis! And corn on the cob. Only a man deeply in love with life and hopelessly soft on humanity would specify, from beyond the grave, that his mourners receive corn on the cob.

Yes Dys, that's the way it should be.

I lke this pic, though I'll always think of Cav as Ronald McDonald and his blackboard.

Unbelievable. He was so young and so full of life,
always upbeat, and genuine nice.

What a loss!

As a newbie I didn't get to know him well. My deepest condolences to Naomi and all of you here at A2K who meant so much to him, as he was to you. The love you all share is truly magical. May it sustain you through your sorrows.

Yes, Mezzie.



I agree with Dys, re a goodly raucous wake.
But right now I am still blubbering with waves of tears and have dug out my Callas La Divina 2 cd and put in on full volume, probably scaring cars that go by on my side street. Not that that would be Cav's choice but it fits how I feel.

While looking for stuff to post for Buttercup -- sweet things he'd said about her -- I found a post I hadn't seen before saying that they were trying to have a kid. One of those minor details that are hitting me like a ton of bricks this evening.

Yeah, I saw that, too. It is weird how we'll live on in our posts, isn't it? When Buttercup and Cav's family are ready... there are over 2000 posts by him that they can read to remember him. I think (I think) that would be comforting.

I remember that post about them wanting a kid someday as well. I've been sitting here thinking about all the recipes I've gotten from Cav and how I think about him every time I make them. He will be kept alive in my heart and with me in my kitchen.

He will never be forgotten.

I just came back to A2K today from a break of sorts, and this is quite heavy news for me to hear. Cav was one of the few people who made me feel truly welcome here, and I'm sure I wouldn't have stuck around for long if it hadn't been for him. I'll remember his original writing above all else, and I immediately thought of his story "Cal and Brent" upon reading about what happened. I'm not sure what else to say. I'm shaking.

I'm here with you all. I feel like I should cook something challenging tomorrow. Cav was such an inspiration, in many ways.

That is a honoring kind of idea, Mac...
I plan to gather up some of his helpful cooking posts at some point.
