A Sad Note 6 Years, 4 Months ago  
Stefan,

The very warmest and best of thoughts and good will coming at you from my family and of course from myself... Your appreciation for Mr. Pokorny as a man and a father is clear, and I for one am honored that you would share such a deeply personal moment with us here in the forums as an extension of your community.

Stefan,

While 2008 has been rough for you and your family, hang in there and things will get better. What an incredible life your father lived. You should be proud that he was able to accomplish so much in his life.

Stefan,

You have never objected to any personal things any of us have posted here, be they good or bad.
WHY should we object to your posting of something this deeply personal on what is your page?
I, at least, feel honored that you would feel you can share so personal a feeling as saying goodbye to your father with me. And I'd bet that everyone here feels the same way, more or less.

We CARE, guy. We give a damn; you're not just some corporate wig. You, Mari, Jeff, Lori - heck, even Doug matters to us! DF is FAMILY!

And as such, Mr. Jan Hird Pokorny was paterfamilias to ALL of the Dwarven Forge community. Because he was Papa to YOU.
IF you allow us to adopt him that way, and to care about him - and you - in such a manner.
Is that okay with you, Stefan?
