To those going to AMG 08:
« on: August 11, 2008, 08:14:28 PM »
I just want to say Godspeed, and may you have safe travels.   My thoughts and prayers will be with all of you, especially during the time of your Memorial Service on Friday.   I will try to calculate the time difference and light a candle with you all during that hour.

Enjoy each other, relish in the company of good friends, sight-see and play tourist, eat and drink well (and safely!) and just have a ball !  Remember that bikerguy (David NC's husband) will have a birthday on the 19th, so that gives you one more thing to celebrate!  Give him a birthday hug for me, please.

Jan, RAB, Ric & Thom, Jody, Mark, Robert, Dennis, Creighton, Cliff, ALL the Davids, Bonnie, Nick, Mike, Gary....I love you all very much!  Have a wonderful time.   Someone save me an AMG 08 CD, will you?

Love & hugs,

Alan   :-*

PS - Happy Anniversary to Ric & Thom and David & David.   Celebrate!

It will be bittersweet since you will not be with us (I do so enjoy reminiscing about the South with you) but I know you will be with us in spirit.  I will be assisting Jan at our memorial service.  I was very touched by your work with that service in Montreal (and unfortunately missed the one in San Francisco because I arrived on Saturday.)

I am hoping you will be able to join us next year wherever we wind up.

Like the others have said, you will be missed.  It's not going to be the same without you and a bunch of others.  We will see you again soon at an AMG!

I will try and upload a group picture after the Memorial Service using David_NC's laptop.

You know how I feel about you, and the fact that we can not enjoy yet another experience saddens me deeply.  I do know however, that whether you are here in person or not, you will be in my heart and soul.

As David mentioned, it will not be the same, but I am sure, that next year will be yet another opportunity.

I love you!
