RIP Steemol

stickismyfriend died on Saturday.

Steve was one of my favourite people. He enriched my life for almost thirty years with his enthusiasm and creativity. His imagery is all around me: the small furry creature that he created for Small Furry Creatures Press; the just married car that celebrated my marriage. My ipod is filled with music that he recommended. But mostly I remember the conversations: spinning wildly over our shared cultural landscape and peppered with enormous silliness. I am still in shock at the news so the pain has yet to arrive but, no matter how much this news hurts me, it will be a more than acceptable price to pay for the years of joy and love I shared with Steve.
