Wonkvillians, we have lost one of our best and brightest.
Our dear Vodka passed away suddenly and unexpectedly this past Saturday, from complications following a concussion.
Shelwood was with him. She has asked me to pass this information on to Wonkville. He loved everyone here and loved commenting here.
She wants everyone to know that he went peacefully in his sleep, albeit he was far too young.
|Here is a link to the obituary|
She said this Hank Williams song is one of his favorites and she hopes that whenever you hear it you will think of him.
That is all the information available, I have to go to work now, please feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
This has to be devastating for Shelwood. Please pass along condolences to her, for what it's worth.
ETA – And yes, to Vodka's family and friends.
This is terrible. Thank you for passing this on, Close. Please send condolences to his friends and family if you can. He will be remembered well.
|The depths of the waters, the bridge which distraught us
And brought to me thoughts of the ill-fated day. |
Oh my gosh… Best wishes to his family and friends and everyone else.
Shit, I'm so sorry.
I hope Vodka's real life family and friends know what an important part of this little world he was. May he find peace in the next world.
Thank you, everyone, I'm sure Shel and Vodka's family appreciate the condolences. I know she is traveling today and tomorrow but I imagine she will read these when she has the time.
And Cmdr, yes, I wonder, too, if they are aware of what an icon their son/brother was to a bunch of smartasses out here in the ether.
This is so sad. I remember vodka and enjoyed his comments. I'd missed seeing him around. No other words~
I'm utterly shocked and heartbroken.. I can't believe it. Such a smart, funny, genuinely good person. …just fucking incomprehensible.
If anyone is interested in contributing for flowers, Cmdr and Smokey have kindly set up a paypal for us to do so for anyone who wishes, here: http://www.paypal.me/wonkville
If you have any other ideas on what to do, if flowers isn't the consensus, please feel free to make suggestions.
Done- and flowers seem appropriate
Damn it. I've been "away" and just now found out. RIP Vodka. Enjoy your flowers.
Shelwood, I'm so sorry. I didn't even know there was another wonkville couple, which is tremendously wonderful but then this. I'm so very sorry.
Rebecca, my apologies, I just found this buried in the "pending" comments.
OK/ I had my first smile today. Driving to get a hoagie, sign on a club down the street complete with typo :
Two for One Vodka
Do ya think…………nah, never mind.
Thursday Nihght Red Wings, and he'd be fine with that.
This is sad news. I shall miss Vodka.
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

Oh wow, so tragic. This is awful. He was taken too soon.
slightly irreverent, just like the man.
