Percival and Evonne, I am so sorry I was not able to attend the service today. My husband has been quite ill and in the hospital. I needed to be there today for several meetings. I so enjoyed talking to you at Overlake and being with you in CJ's room. Sending blessings to you both always.

I worked with CJ for many years at Wizards of the Coast and Gen Con. He always had a big smile and a good word. He left this world much too soon, but I believe he is smiling down on us from above. Blessings to his lovely parents.

CJ was a bright soul who brought light, laughter, and love in abundance everywhere he went. I'm sure he will live on in the many hearts of those who knew him, because it's not possible to know CJ without giving him a piece of your heart.
