    RIP Perry Norton

    I'm sure there are a few people here who remember my Dad.

    He passed away on Dec. 23rd, peacefully and with my Mom and sister and me by his side.

    He was all that a person could ever want in a Dad... loving and kind and compassionate and giving.... and so much more.

    He dragged us kids onto the internet with much prodding as he did the planning community. He *SO* got what the potential of the internet was... He was so excited when the Legal Forum at Compuserve invited him to be a Sysop of his own sub forum for Planners and, later, with the introduction of Cyburbia. (Was it called that when it was created?)

    Anyway. I just wanted to let people know.

    Beth Norton

    I experienced how you feel losing a father - 37 yrs ago.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I am so sorry for your loss Perry will be missed on Cyburbia.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"
