I was thinking the same thing. With two young boys with their lives ahead of them, it would be nice to actually be able to contribute something beyond flowers. Even just $5 or $10 from however many people would surely be a nice contribution.

Great idea! I'm up with that!

We need to ask TX if that can be done. If so, it needs a thread of it's own for greater impact.

Wll if folks do want to send flowers, someone should contact her via email (honestly I must of been so stunned by the news, that I didn't see that she posted her email, or maybe added it later) and ask for an address where the flowers could be sent.

And mention that we are doing a tribute of our own (maybe a beer recipe or naming a contest after him) and ask if she would like to be kept abreast of things, or would prefer not to.

I would think a mod here should do it (I'd help compose or look over the inital email beforehand if they want my help.)

My original intent with my initial post was just to be aware that, not knowing their relationship too well, her interaction with us may only have been a mere courtesy to us an not an invitaion for us to interest with her life further. Like I said we don't know how much of us he shared with her....What if really she HATED that that he brewed, or resented the time he spent here...and she only notified us because she figured he would want us to know. But deep down there was some resentment of the time spent on here?

That's why I just advised us to tread lightly....and not be too dissapointed if she didn't want any more from/ or to do with us.

But I think rather than debate further the merits of it or the pol's or mine for that matter, view on things...let's go back to the original intent of this thread and before we contact here, decide what we're going to do.

I don't know how o make this an animated gif to flicker, but this pic reminds me of those "light a candle for someone you love" tribute image that people put on myspace pages and stuff.



But let's get back to talking about a tribute.....how about a contest specifically in the category of the last beer he brewed. Maybe those who want to come up with a recipe which "finishes his beer" and after the contest maybe we can submit it to the AHA for their upcoming November Teach a Neighbor to homebrew group brew. In the spring big brew, one of the suggested recipes, the saison, was a memorial recipe.

Whether the AHA chooses it or not, WE should decide to brew it on our own on "TANTHB Day."

So we would need to have this done and judged by mid October no later, so we can choose a winner, and get that recipe posted on here.

I would be honored to to be one of the judges....I have a feeling the one rover's last posts was backing or defending me in a recent thread....the mods deleted all the posts, but since he and I were amicable, I want to believe that he had my back....

Anyway if we go this route, let me know.

I just started tearing up thinking about it....

Maybe we need yet another new thread with a poll to decide how best to honour GreenwoodRover.

Personally, I'm still up for a simple beer with nice labels.

I'm up for brewing a finished version of his last recipe, making our own to honor him, and or, the donating money for a donation. I think this should definitely be done. Like said before 2 kids being left behind, there will certainly be bills his wife is not used to!

If you donate to his account I would be glad to pass on the amount to his family, I will also refund his Lifetime membership costs to add to the coffer.

Excellent! Hooray HBT.

I am all for a memorial beer but, think that any monetary donations given would have a greater impact to the surviving family. Times are hard enough when all the available income is there. I have to believe that by having this community pitch-in with much needed support that it will leave an indelible impression on Laura as well as ease some of her burdens in the days to come.

Donate to Kevin & Laura (aka GreenwoodRover) here!
