Tue September 17 at 6:00 PM, Delilah's
2771 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
Guys, I know he was justifiably banned from Metafilter, but wfrgms was my friend and he has died. I'm going to Delilah's, where he and I used to drink before the Goat Ups were the Goat Ups, on Tuesday, after work. I hope someone can join me.
I have no details about what happened, nor any information about a formal service but I will share them when I get them. There is a family gathering to support his longtime girlfriend this afternoon. Ping me if you want those details.

Stay well, everyone.

Funeral's Thursday--there's a graveside memorial and a wake, no service. Anyone who wants info about it can contact me.

I would really like to be able to join you for this, but unfortunately I won't be able to.

I'm really sorry for your loss, crush. For all of us. I didn't know wfrgms that well but he was a cool guy IRL no matter his online persona.

I'm so fucking upset about this, you guys. I only just saw the MeTa this morning. I'm at a loss and miss you all right now more than ever.

I was sorry you weren't there this week too Spiffy. I'm sorry I did not think to message you. I'm careless that way. And sorry. Really sorry.
