Gone Too Soon

I first met Pandaguy in 1998, in Akron Ohio, when he came there to attend Boo At The Zoo at the Akron Zoo. I still recall seeing him and SK-1 surrounded by kids giving out hugs and pictures. I knew at that moment I wanted to be a part of that, and set about creating Stargazer.

A couple of years later, at the Doo Dah Parade in Ocean City New Jersey. It was a dull, drizzly day. The parade had gone ahead, and the group I was with was lagging behind, mostly to hand out hugs and high fives. I wanted to make sure that they knew where to go since the rest of the parade was now out out sight, so I went further ahead. Quite a ways further ahead, as the group lagged quite a bit. Apparently they also realized how much they were lagging, and wondering where they were supposed to go. Pandaguy saw me way up ahead, in my Stargazer fursuit, and said, "Follow the blue glow!" It's one of the nicknames that suck with me--The Blue Glow.

Jon, you made more friends than you know. You will not be forgotten.
