4) From: Les
I just got the following email from Elizabeth
"Hello everybody,
short note to let you  know that Alfred  went to be with the Lord this
morning. Memorial service this Saturday 2-19-05 at 10 am, Trail
Christian Fellowship  at Highway 62 Eagle Point/Shady Cove area.
Thank you for all you love, support  and prayers.
Alfred faced death with dignity and concern for those around him. 
Dealing with death on an almost daily basis in my job, some times I
forget that we live in a culture that most often treats the inevitable
with denial.  Alfred had prepared well.  He had assurance of his place
in eternity because he had made his peace with God by accepting God's
ultimate act of love by sending his Son to die on the cross.  I look
forward to seeing him in heaven again some day.
I will be attending the memorial service and I will pass on best
wishes from the Homeroast group.  I would like to again thank all of
you for reaching out to Elizabeth in her time of need.

Very sad news.
The memorial napkin is still circulating.  I sent it on to Barbara Greenspon 
Monday morning.  I guess when it makes it's rounds, it will find it's way to

Whoops.  I did not receive it yet, but its only Tuesday.  Unfortunately, 
my father in law died last night, and we are off to Charleston, West 
Virginia till late next week, so, unless it comes tomorrow morning, it 
will have to wait until we return.
Obviously, I'm sorry, but I know everyone understands.

Thank you Les, Alfred and his wit will be missed.

10) From: H Hurd
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the
And what is it to cease breathing but to free the breath from its restless
that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

rest in peace Alfred

Thanks for keeping all of us informed about Alfred, he certainly lived
well and died well. And for a time he added his wit, humor and great
questions to the list.

What service do you have Barbara?  I'm curious since I'm also in the
Twin Cities.  And of course because I'm an armchair geek.

Perhaps we will pass on the road

Life is definately too short for bad coffee!

You have been wonderful to Alfred and Elizabeth through all this.  We 
here in TC are saddened by his loss, but gladdened that he now knows no 
suffering and that his walk with God has reached it's zenith.  I know 
you will see him again.  His passing is truly a loss for the list.

I am sorry to hear of Alfred's passing, but am grateful for the small
opportunity to get to know him threw the list.
Les - thank you for your time and involvement and for being there for
Alfred.  May we all be as blessed with friends as Alfred was.
I hope Elizabeth is doing as well as can be expected.  She sounds like
she's a strong woman who loved Alfred very much.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
Just finally had a few minutes to do email tonight; thus the delay.  I 
have Sprint PCS, and I love it.  I use Mark/Space Mail, which is for Mac 
users, I think.
