Goodbye Gene-Bob

Sad news today. We have lost one of the good ones. The quirky ones. The ones who can always make you laugh.

Our good friend, Gene Saunders was found dead of presumably natural causes. They believe the death occurred on September 19, 2008. It has come as a total shock to all of us. It will probably sink in tomorrow.

A couple of you on my list knew Gene (I just typed 'know Gene' and had to back up. That was hard.) and what a wonder he was. He was a big question mark, you never knew if he was teasing and he knew more useless information than anyone I have ever met. He could always surprise you.

While the homeowner's association he was previously president of have up a great 'fact-based' memorial, here is how I prefer to remember Gene: He, Jill and I went on a lark to see the Legendary Pink Dots. We stood out like a sore thumb, but we laughed like crazy. Sushi on the way, including pictures of the spectacular automated toilet. Shiny happy people out of their comfort zone.

Gebo, you added to my life and you will be remembered as you should be, not as a God-fearing Mifipi Southern Baptist.

That's the perfect way to describe him - a hoot! :)
