I just learned about the sudden death of [livejournal.com profile] keristor a few hours ago. I am in shock.

I first met Chris Croughton at my first full Worldcon, Magicon, in Orlando in '91. I enjoyed hanging with him at cons where we were both in attendance. He was friendly, fun, and someone I always looked forward to seeing. I also chatted quite a bit with him online (the two of us both being tech-geeks and around the same age). I remember how he beamed when he accepted his Filk Hall of Fame award when he was at FKO with the N'Early Music Consort. He later told me about how hard it was not to "burst out" to anyone about it.

I enjoyed his cheerfulness, his knowledge, and most of all, his sense of humor.

Damn.

He will be sorely missed.

Magicon was in 1992. (Chicon V was 1991).

As for Keris, he will be missed. I only got to meet him once at a con and I am sorry I didn't get to know him better.

I don't believe that either Robin or I ever met the man. Needless to say, from the tenor of the eulogies I've read about him, I really really wish that one of us had.

*hugs you*

If you feel like getting out of the house and being with people, and you're still here on Tuesday, we're having a house concert and we'd love to see you. I realize that that's a ~2 hour train/bus ride though, but there will be filkers and hugs.
