Re: Gary Hallock Update

When George died the punsters in Austin got together in his memory. While a tribute at the Soon-to-be-held Punoff is absolutely appropriate, I'm wondering if a mall informal meeting amongst punsters would also be a good thing. Perhaps Saturday afternoon after the Punoff? What do you think?

The passing of Gary Hallock is truly a mournful event. There was Gary the man, husband, father. And then there was Gary the driving force behind the Pun-Off, PUNY, the O. Henry Museum and more. Men like Gary will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him, and all those touched by his humor.
A lovely form of Nirvana, for Gary has been spread among all those who know him, however well or slightly. He has touched us all, and his light will not die.

Despite knowing him only a short time, I feel as though Gary would not only appreciate a 21 pun salute, he wordplay right along with the rest of us.
