Farewell to a Friend
This evening I have the honor of providing the music for Greg Merryman's Memorial Service. Here are the details for the service, provided by Mr. Aeolus Cleanslate:
In honor of our friend and colleague Greg Merryman, who passed away on July 15, the citizens of New Babbage will be holding a memorial service in his honor.
Saturday, July 24, 5PM-6PM SLT
Babbage Canals, City of New Babbage
The program will feature a short selection of formal remembrances, and then the public will be invited to share their memories. Mourning colors are acceptable but work clothes are encouraged.
Those who still have items constructed by Greg will be invited to arrange them around the perimeter of the presentation area. Builders are invited to leave a tool in his name near his picture on display nearby.
For more information, contact Aeolus Cleanslate or Ceejay Writer.
I will be playing the music for the service and the post service gathering on my event stream, http://music.gabrielleriel.com .
I had the pleasure of meeting Greg in that place called the Real World two months ago at The World Steam Expo in Dearborn, Michigan. We all had such a nice time, and we laughed a lot. I am still in a bit of shock at his sudden passing.
I recommend that you pay your respects if you can, and whether you knew Greg or not. He was a big part of New Babbage, and therefore the Steamlands.
Farewell Greg. Blessings on you and your journey.
