Yesterday marked the end of a long few weeks. It’s been a huge push to get things knocked out this summer before the staff comes back for the fall and crushes us with tech requests.

I ended the week by going to a visitation for a colleague who passed away this week. I didn’t work with him closely, but I knew him pretty well. He was vitally involved with this town and its people. His life is a testament to what people should so with their time on Earth. What a loss for us who remain. I hope I have a fraction of the impact he’s had on people’s lives. I think the people who turned out for him rival my Uncle Al’s funeral. It leaves a gaping hole when the good ones go, but (not to be trite) they live on in all of us. This guy made the lives of countless people here richer. I hope we can all honor him by paying it forward.
