  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Hello gang,

    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.

    1. What would Vodka want us to donate to? What did he love and care about? What does his family and friends care about?

  7. 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.

  8. 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
