We HAVE to do something to honor/tribute for electro as only the huddle can.

I don't know how or what but something.

If a paypal can't get set up in time, flowers can be sent individually to the funeral home if we can get the arrangements in time. I'm not sure whether to use a Clinton or Mt Olive florist, though.

Huddle flag football game, with honorary pre-game tailgate.

I live in Atlanta and travel so much for work that I don't know if I'd be able to make it, but based on what everyone has said about him, I think a group of friends cooking, eating, and playing football would be just about the best way to honor him and his contributions to the Huddle community.

"whats done" ????

Fuc a horse- the man isnt living any longer.

A lot of us lost a great friend, and someone that will never be replaced. That outweighs any loss of life for horses that he cared for and loved dearly.

I know at this point is his body will be at Crumpler Honeycutt Funeral Home in Clinton, NC

This situation is kind of similar to one I went through about 5 years ago. I work at a convention once a year and have been at it since 1995. The head lighting guy and his crew became friends with my (fellow Panthers fan) buddy and I. The last time I saw him at the show, he was in a great mood - he was the number 1 DJ in his town which meant a lot to him, and he was sounding like things were going well.

Then we found out that he killed himself - he was staying in a motel room and lit a charcoal grill and died of CO2 poisioning. We were all totally shocked and in disbelief, because this guy was that guy who was the life of the party, would do anything for you, had tough times but stuck them out...

Turns out that he was extremely bipolar, had been arrested for his 3rd DUI and would have lost his job, Clear Channel had just taken over the other station he mainly competed against, and he also may have just found out he had cancer.

He decided to not burden anyone with his decision, and even mailed out postcards to a few of his friends saying goodbye and clearing up some facts that he knew that the local media would get wrong or sensationalize (!)

One difference here is that he put his pet parrot in his companies van, along with his record and DVD collection that he did not want to get damaged in case a fire or something started in the hotel room (or more likely smoke damaged). We went to Tennesee to visit his grave and see his mom, and found out that our friend was the Kentucky state horse barrel racing champion when he was 18 which I would have never, ever in a million years thought was true, but his mom showed me the pic and the belt buckle.

I never actually met or knew electro so I cannot say what else I would feel about him but I am torn between the idea of suicide as something that only a mentally unbalanced person would do, or something that a person who is perfectly clear about his status in life would do.
