It's a sad day for WOTI and everyone else who knew Erold. It's hard to believe, but I just can't fight the evidence. You'll be greatly missed, bud.
My condolences to Erold's family and friends. I know their grief is amplified by the sudden, unexpected nature of their loss. My family and I are praying for you in this tragic time.
I posted something to WOTI - as weak as it was (nothing works in situations like this). I'm hoping that someone is able to get all the posts to his family. At least this outpouring by his pen pals might be some small salve to his family and friends; now or later.
This is the down side to WOTI. It really is a FAMILY. If we were just a bunch of strangers this wouldn't hurt so badly.
I've been unable to get Erold off my mind. I'm heading into the back yard and firing up a 5-year-old Cuban Montecristo #3 in honor of his memory. I have decided that sometimes a great smoke shouldn't be saved for a great moment.
Here's to you, Erold!
