A Condolence Book in the memory of James Kim

By HAL 9000 Moderator ·
As we all know by now James Kim the Senior Editor from C Net died in unfortunate circumstances recently. So I thought it would be a good idea if we lowly IT Types who have benefited from the work of people like James where to get together and wish his family well for their future as well as those others left behind that where touched by James.

To every one affected by the Death of James Kim I wish you all the best and sincerely Hope that you find a way to cope with his passing.

that is two in the last two weeks.
over the weekend of dec 1,2 a friend passed on from a brain anurism, then James Kim.

I wonder who the third is going to be.. this year.

to many deaths, specially at this time of year.

I'm at a perpetual loss of words at this, how can anyone be expected to say the right thing 20 or 30 times a year?

Same here ...

by jasonhiner Moderator In reply to well..

I was back home in northern Indiana for my grandfather's funeral when I got the news that they found James's body.

Sorry to hear about your friend with the brain aneurysm - that is a frightening thing, and unpredictable. It can sneak up and kill someone who seems totally healthy.

well, in his case

by Jaqui In reply to Same here ...

he was at home in bed.

and he was found soon enough afterwards that there was an open casket service, he didn't lie around for a long time decomposing.

odd, I just remembered, this time last year I found a neighbor who had passed away.
[ only a few hours later, I smelled the urine from her bladder emptying. ]

hey, between the two of us that's the three.
~crossing fingers~

it's the worst time of year for anyone to pass on, yet it's also quite a common occurence. big family time and losing family members / friends / associates, doesn't seem right that they go hand in hand so often.
