    Hey friends-- it took me ages to remember my old login but I had to come over and say how sad I am about KF. He truly was one of the greats. Kind, funny, smart, and compassionate. I loved talking to him about film, but I also just loved talking to him. This is a terrible loss.
    ...and the milk's in me.

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Yeah, there's no making sense of it. Fucking awful.

    Slight change of plans w/ the card. If those who've pitched in approve, I'll send a sympathy card for KF's family, accompanied by the doordash gift cert.

    Even if you can't donate, PM me your name if you want your name on the card. It'd be nice to get a lot of names on there, to let KF's family know how many folks are thinking of them. Speaking out of experience, it does help.
    What's the best way to do this? PM you my name and also give you Venmo details from there?

    This is heartbreaking news.

    I can't fathom it. Just can't fucking fathom.

    My heart is breaking for Val and the kids.

    bacon - I'll paypal you shortly.

    Mara - perhaps the Icine community on FB could do something for Val?

    I still can't believe it. Even though this forum has drifted away from my memory, I will always remember the countless discussions I had with Mike when the Film Discussion Thread first began. I've known him longer than most people I interact with in real life. So very sorry for everyone he knew and touched.

    Seeing pictures of him on his very last day on Facebook is heartbreaking.
    Sure why not?

    Thanks dude. I think we are friends on FB.

    Mike is probably why I got into Bob Dylan.

    I just happened to check in here today after longer than I can remember. This is really fucking sad. I'm glad I saw it in time to chip in.

    Wow. Hey friends. It's been some time, and it is strange and unfortunate that the impulse to check in just flared up over the last few days.

    I'm so sorry to hear of this. There was much correspondence between us over the years, including a crucial conversation I had with him Mike a few years back regarding a friend that was having a hard time with rehab. His input was fantastic, and helped settle a lot of unresolved things. Goddamn, this is such a nightmare. Jacques, I haven't followed closely how things are developing, but I'm assuming I can PayPal you an amount that you can relay to the Beeckmans...

    Man. He was one of the best.

    Oh wow I just saw this. How terrible. Fucking cancer.

    He died on my birthday.

    Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    Fer sher, Sven. Any amount will do.

    As for the rest of you, wow, MC, you really came through. We're over USD $600 dollars in donations raised. Val's not going to have to cook for awhile. If anybody has a better thing to do with this money, I'm open to ideas.

    Regardless, if you don't mind, I'll set aside 50 for the funeral - either a bouquet or donation depending on what the family's wishes are. Any money left over I'll donate to an anti-cancer charity.

    Alright, I'm off to get the gift card. Anybody else wants to get their name on the card, there's still a little time before I drop it in the mailbox.
