A death in the (virtual) family

Jamie Kufrovich died Monday, 1 August 2005, of complications of neurofibromatosis. He was 35. The funeral was held last Friday.

Jamie was on here as moufette, but I knew him better as Egg, the nickname he used on IRC for years. He was, like a lot of the folks I first met online, a furry and a fan of Animaniacs. Surgery for cancer of the auditory nerves left him deaf when he was in high school, but he earned his degree in EE and did a significant amount of graduate work before leaving. He didn't let his deafness, or his subsequent health problems get in his way any more than he could help it. I met him in person a couple of times, and found that he was still enjoying life as much as he could.

I have his mother Grace's address and phone number in case anyone would like to pass along their condolences. Contact me via the info in my LJ userinfo if you'd like them. I'll also collect email and LJ replies and postings, and bundle them up for her. (She's not on the net.)
