Carolyn, what a touching post.

He was a smart and funny man. It's a tribute to him that he became so well liked in so short a time. I will miss him very much.
Me, too. My condolences to Trevor.
Contrast this to Rutt's Hut, an old school Jersey hot dog legend. You can't even get across the parking lot without encountering pigeons who are so bold that they try to take bites of hot dogs from people who are walking to their cars. These pigeons are so brazen that they routinely shake down rats for lunch money.

The positive thing is how great it must have been to be sick and still be so connected to a community. We both were lucky.
I know he was considering an admin stint and we PM'd about how much like school it can be around here. His last line to me was "Off to cram for my mid-term! And you should see the fabulous ruffles I got for my prom tux! You are going to be so jealous..."
"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

Trevor, you were one lucky man to have been with Julian for so long. (And no doubt Julian was lucky to have you!)

We are having a bad year.
Yes. And I've been reflecting upon that fact. It really brings home to me that even though we're an online community, we're still a community of human souls. We celebrate our joys and lament our sadness and loss.
Reading that moving tribute, and the previous ones for Tuckerman and Winesonoma made me wish I had known more about them when they were alive and well and active and happily participating in various discussions, offering their thoughts and insights.
Back in those heady first days of eG, the bio threads were among my favorites. Getting to know each other beyond just the impressions made through somebody's opinion of a certain dish at this restaurant, or what they thought about a coffee pot or blender or toaster oven they'd just bought, was nice.
Perhaps we should write moving tributes to one another while we're still around so that others here in our cyber city have a better understanding of who we are before it's too late.
But most of all, let me add my condolences to Trevor for such a deep and personal loss.
