Re: RIP - 4E (Forrest J. Ackerman)
I always enjoyed meeting and talking with Forry when we were at the same cons. Damn.
It's one of those things -- I always expected he'd be around forever, so haven't gotten around to dropping him that "how the hell have you been" notes. Now it's too late.
I'm going to miss Forry. He was a helluva cool guy, very generous with his time and information, and a wonderful person to know.
Folks, please -- if there is anyone in your life you've put on the back burner, take this holiday season as an excuse to get in touch. Don't wake up someday to find that someone you cared for has passed away.
