Thanks for letting us know Kitkatz. I will be there.
Do you know if Trina has made any specific request as to what can be done, in lieu of flowers?

I am keeping in touch with Trina, she has not made any comments or special requests, at this time.

 It's great that you will be there. Thank you

I wish I could be there.
Feel so far away and isolated.
As does probably so many others.

I too feel really bad. Here is a man who put his trust in me and I can't even make his funeral. I know he would understand, it is what's inyour heart people that counts. You are all so special for feeling the way you do. Please take a moment at 11 am Pacific time zone, Saturday for a moment of silence and prayer, in rememberance of the man that we all miss so much and who did so much for this community.

Sluff, you're doing a good job holding down the fort. Epo appreciates that, I have no doubt.

I just joined this site today and I feel like I already know the man without even meeting him.  He must have been a very special man to do all the things that he did and they were all great and monumental things for our community.  We will all be better for those things and using what he has put before us for the greater good.

 :thx; Epoman .... you are awesome!

Last night was Epoman's wake. Trina and Nick were greeting family and friends as they arrived in the mourning room. Goofynina and her brother John were there, along with Kitkatz and her husband Victor. The room was surrounded by bouquets of flowers. Trina was warm and welcoming, which made it easier for us to come into the room. She knew us by our screen names, and so did Nick. It was sad to see Epoman because he was so vibrant and alive a short time ago. Although I did not speak with them, I saw that Epo's brother, father and mother were there, as well as others I did not know. Livecam came by later and also got to meet Trina and Nick. There was a white balloon in the room that was given to Goofynina. It had the words "Run Billy Run" written on it. When we got outside to take photos with Nick, Goofynina decided to set the balloon free. She took the little weight off the bottom and handed it to Nick. He seemed hesitant to release it and Goofynina said, "Go ahead! Let it go free!" Nick let go of the string and said "Like my dad?" and she said "Yes, just like your dad."

Our spirits were all joined together yesterday and we all wish we could have been there. Thank you for sharing this incredibly sad day and for representing all of the IHD family. Keep us updated if you find out any special needs for Bill's family.
