The guy who filled out the form for me (I was in no condition to do that. I was actually told I could sign with an X.) quoted me. They were my words.

I signed, but you canít really make out any letters. Maybe the first letter of my first name. There was also a bed-side notary.

My advice is to make sure you have your paperwork in order while youíre healthy. Make the decisions so your peeps donít have to. Iíll be executing my will on Friday.

I don't know why Gene C. didn't occur to me. I'd often wondered what his name signified (and usually my brain just modified it to "genetic" for some reason). RIP.

My condolences to his family. He was doing what he love to do, and at a place he loved to do it at, no better way to go out in life.

This sucks.

I had the utmost respect for him. What could I write to capture the loss?

His presence in our community will be missed.

the guy was a sane poster who depicted himself in an honest fashion and as forums go that is as good of a compliment and farewell that the internet world can give
