Very sad to hear this news.
Let no one build walls to divide us
Walls of hatred nor walls of stone
Come greet the dawn and stand beside us
We'll live together or we'll die alone

We should have a memorial branch, as distinct from famous dishes. If we're all going to be here in 2025, and assuming mutha does die before then, then there's going to be more of these threads celebrated our fleeting existences.

A backup, for in the event of Muthas passing, would also be good so everyone's efforts aren't lost in time, like tears in rain.

It sounds like FP's send off was beautifully done and so meaningful. I had no idea he is a fellow Michigander. I shouldn't be surprised...it seems like a lot of Michiganders end up in other places.

Can the memorial branch also include banned posters?

I met fools in Phnom Penh a decade ago, in about 2006, or maybe it was 2007, along with Dallan and Aero and her Mr Aero. He was interesting to listen to, and he was interested in listening to others. A nice man, very consistent with the image of a reasonable person he projected on the stew.

I'm very sorry for the loss his family will be feeling. RIP.

Hi Debra,

I am a poster that was on annual leave in Canada and off the board so just saw your message.

Horrible news and especially horrible to lose someone in such a random accident.

I always enjoyed foolsprogress's posts and really liked his attractive avatar but never met him. Please accept my condolences to you and the rest of his family.

I have a file of stuff people post on politicalstew that makes me laugh out loud and this is my favorite from foolsprogress:
foolsprogress wrote:If your dog was four times bigger than it is, it would still be your friend and companion. If your cat was four times bigger than it is, it would eat you.

He will be missed.

All the best for the future.

Warmest Regards, Smoker

I remember discussing that very concept with him and hearing him laugh hard when he pronounced the part about the cat! He was such a funny and entertaining person. Thanks SO much for that wonderful memory. I appreciate it.

Smoker, in Travel Journalism, I'm writing about some of our travel adventures together. Have a look if you like. I get cheers and jeers for them, but I think if you liked Foolsprogress, you might enjoy reading some of them.

It's just hilarious! Thanks for letting me know that. He really loved this forum.

I know that many of you won't have known this, as it's so hard to know someone from online, but....often when he read posts, he would laugh really hard! He lit up all over when he was laughing. His eyes crinkled, and he was thoroughly delighted and happy.

That cat remark...I had heard that several times. Ken loved cats. He loved it that he understood them, and he loved it that they would come to him, loved him, and he knew how to pet them just right.

Debra (and Dale)

As a long time TT and stewbie lurker please accept my condolences.
While lurking here whenever I saw fp was participating in a thread I knew his contributions would be worthy reading.

RIP
