Condolences for John Adams
In my contacts with John, he has always impressed me as a genuinely good person, someone who is passionate about what he does, and about the people around him.
I know that it would mean something to me that people cared enough to do something, even if it can't undo a loss.
So, on Sunday, at 9 pm Toronto time, I'm going to send something to John and his family. The card will just be "We sympathize with your loss, and we want you to know that we are here for you. From your friends in the DCC community."
Because, really, we are a community. Or we should be.
If you want to contribute, great. I'll be using PayPal, and what I send will be based on what I can afford. You can add to that amount by sending a donation to ravencrowking at hotmail dot com. Your donation will go to sending condolences, and no other purpose. Cut-off time is 8 pm Eastern Daylight Time. Any contribution, small or large, is welcome. There will be no list of contributors, because it is better if it comes from all of us, even those of us living paycheck to paycheck or who don't use PayPal.
I don't have any better idea. I feel the need to do something.
Spread the word. Let's get this done.
