Thank you Meryl and John. I would've loved to have the chance to be there with you.

Thank you all for going. I had a feeling you would.  :) It means a lot to me to have this connection with you all, and the words to read about it.

Thanks, Meryl and John, for putting the card there, and for telling us about it.
Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.

Now for some of my pictures:

We think Heath lived on the top floor.  The word is that he lived on the 4th floor, and we're thinking that didn't include the street level.

John Gallagher (jmmgallagher) and I made the journey downtown to pay our respects at the building where Heath was staying when he passed away yesterday. 



Meryl,

I haven't read the thread yet, and we haven't ever officially 'met' (online or otherwise) but I just wanted to say how glad I am that you two had each other's physical company.  And that you were able to do something physically for yourselves/us/our grief.
