Topic: OT: Long time list member's passing (15 msgs / 358 lines)
1) From: Lynne
I thought it would be appropriate to let folks know about a passing of a
member of our list (don't know if he had been a member recently, but was
when I joined years ago).
Scott Miller (from Atlanta) passed away a couple of weeks ago. I'm one of
his Facebook friends, but as FB goes, you don't always keep up with
everyone... I just found out from Brett Mason that he passed away.
Scott helped me a few years ago -  as did many others, too - by donating
greens to me when I was going through a tough time & couldn't purchase any.
In fact, between Scott and a few others, I had enough greens to last me
nearly a year!! (and there were other gifts I received too).
I'll never forget that kindness - it meant so much to me - in fact, I was
overwhelmed and didn't even know how to respond, how to thank everyone. I
saved every single name for the day when my finances improved & I could
give something back. [Still waiting for the day - little did I know that I
would (out of necessity!) become an expert on living the frugal life,
lol... but, I try make my life an example of passing on any small kindness
I can - as a way to pay it forward, so to speak... this is how I am trying
to repay Scott and everyone else who has helped me... best way I know to
honor someone's life]
I thought there might be others who would appreciate knowing that Scott
passed on - as I did.
I raise my cup to you today, Scott!!
Always your homeroast-friend -

OMG--is that the same Scott Miller who'd lived in Chicago's western suburbs a few years back? No matter what, that's still sad news and he and his kindness will be sorely missed.

This is sad news. I swung over that way once and visited Scott at
Ogeechee River Coffee Company in Statesboro, GA. We chatted for close
to an hour.
Here is a link to a YouTube video of Scott explaining some coffee things:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAlLCtl-rQoBrian

Thanks for posting that, Lynne.  I never met Scott, never spoke to him, but I felt I knew him from reading his postings on this list.  I'm sad he's gone, too.  And thanks for posting his YouTube vid too, Brian.

Well, I meant to reply earlier to this, but I was at a viewing all day and didn't get to.  I raised my glass of Monkey Blend to Scott and my Grandfather-in-law.  
I don't post much to FB, but I can be found at Peter Louton and Lynne, thank you very much for alerting us to Scott's passing.  
I hope everybody has a great weekend.

Passing through each phase I go
some joyous, others not so.
I press through former vistas
ground at distance fretfully seen,
now pavement beneath my feet.
 Onward trudging, moving slow
not much further to the end.....
yet I go,
remembering joys,
loosing sorrows to the
signal fire.
 Come up bright flame
reach the indigo sky
and be light
for those who seek their way by night
and those who's faith my journey held
 Flames tell,
flames tell for all who see
the way is true, for strong or weak
one more has lit his way to the mountain
they seek.

Been off the computer since I posted this (son is staying over for awhile &
my computer is about the only form of entertainment I have)... glad to see
so many of you guys are still around.
Thanks, Brian, for posting the video - wow - he was young (well, to this
oldER gal). Makes you think, doesn't it... life really is short & we never
know when the time will come for the next adventure.
