I just wanted to share a bit of sad news with those of you who may have met Kevin Grant at IQM 2 or at one of the state FF functions. Kevin passed away last week after an ongoing battle with various ailments. KG was one of the 3 original members of the Emerald City Empire and probably one of the nicest guys you could meet. I know it has been a few years since all of our groups have gathered as one, but I wanted to pass this along to anyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. You can go here to read his obituary and there is a link to his online obituary guestbook hosted by the local paper if anyone is so inclined.
