A colleague of mine has lost family member to Covid-19 today. I know some might find it banal, but don't be too quick to mock some of us that run the avatar. Happy tanking. 

 

o7 to a great human. He will be missed.

The longer the pandemic goes on, the more of these stories are gonna happen. Sad reality we live in right now

I know the feeling, my good man. Worst April Fools News Ever. My condolences for your loss.

 

I paid a small tribute to my friend in one of the only ways I knew how. I recommend mini-tributes to the fallen and forgotten when possible. See below. It should jump to 22:44 automatically.

Now becoming just degrees of separation, where everyone knows or knows of someone who's been taken by this.

NYTimes obituary on my good friend Mr. Sam Clayton Jr. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/13/obituaries/sam-clayton-jr-dead.html?referringSource=articleShare. We use to laugh that he was on the Jamaican Bobsled Team and that it was the inspiration for the “Cool Runnings” movie. Take a read about his rich life.

I'm sorry man, that's tough. I like the avatar and think it's a good tribute. I run it too.

 

My father passed away on March 15th, not from Covid-19, but our stay at home started the next day. We haven't been able to hold any sort of gathering in his honor due to the current circumstances.

This is sad to have these things happen and cannot support family and friends.

Just had a Zoom meeting with my 4 brothers in other parts of country.

It has been 15 years since we were all in the same place at same time.

Nephew getting married in September, hoping to see them all.

These tele meetings or whatever is helpful in these times

Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
