Whisper: Open Thread

By Whisper, on March 7th, 2012

When Lex “left the keys in it” for me to be a guest blogger here about a year ago, we didn’t discuss what to do in this occasion.  I am at a loss.  I did feel the need to provide one place for your tributes and condolences to collect.  So here it is.

Whisper Open Thread

As Lex would say, talk amongst yourselves.

 

Very Respectfully,

Whisper

 

 

 


From The Editor: Lex referred to his readers – The Lexicans – on more than one occasion as “some of the best friends I’ve never met”. I wonder if he ever knew how many of those were out there.

From his San Diego neighbor who knew Carroll LeFon but did not know the identity of Neptunus Lex, to a serviceman in Afghanistan to a young Frenchman,  many came to show their grief from around the world. They were grandmothers, truck drivers, active duty military, retired military, retired policemen, a friend of 20 years, even the Secretary of the Navy

They are here, in a .pdf file that will download. 

There is at least 1 on that list who didn’t know Lex in life but became a friend after reading some posts the next day,  realizing what a good man he was. 

We had all lost a good friend.

My thanks to advokaat and ColoComment for helping me with the .pdf file.

  2. I will remember March 6, 2012 the rest of my life. Bill Tuttle sent me an email from Afg telling me about, but to keep quiet because Mary had not been told yet. It felt like a punch in the gut.

    Hey, Quartermaster! Good to “see” you. That date will be forever in my head and heart, too.
