My Eulogy Log
[14:36] BeeJee Boucher: and sometimes we made them happen
[14:36] BeeJee Boucher: One day i found a skutsje for sale and i asked Epi to come and check it out.
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: And many of you know what followed after that, for a while SL sailing was skutsje crazy.
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: We even made it to SLTV
[14:37] Aislin Keynes: :-)
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: Thats just one memory, one memory of many.
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: Some i cant discuss here cuz they are too naughty.
[14:37] Chad Sawson: lol
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: That was Epi too, sometimes he even made me blush...and wanting too look elsewhere.
[14:37] Orca Flotta: tsk
[14:37] BeeJee Boucher: i remember Sweet ;)
[14:38] BeeJee Boucher: And still those are the moments you realize that behind every silly avatar there is a very real person.
[14:38] BeeJee Boucher: And yes biggies look silly to me.
[14:38] Chad Sawson: lol
[14:38] BeeJee Boucher: I have one confession to make.
[14:38] Orca Flotta: ;)
[14:38] Jane Fossett: grin
[14:38] BeeJee Boucher: When Epi wrote his book we often talked about it in depth,
[14:38] BeeJee Boucher: but till this day i haven't read it.
[14:39] Nber Medici: LOL
[14:39] BeeJee Boucher: I am not a big reader but I know what it's about
[14:39] BeeJee Boucher: And although Epi told me he wasn't religious like the real Epicurus,
[14:39] BeeJee Boucher: as he writes in his book
[14:39] Orca Flotta: it's not about sailing, unfortunately
[14:39] joepie Korobase: :)
[14:39] BeeJee Boucher: it somehow comforts me to think
[14:39] BeeJee Boucher: that he now is sailing his skutsje in the sky with another very dear skutsje loving friend we lost last december.
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: Del, Epi have fun. Just wait until we catch up...and we will
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: i wanna close with the words from a shantysong called A Sailors Farewell Hymn, writer unknown.
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: It's our time to go now,
Haul away your anchor,
It's our sailing time.
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: Get some sail upon her,
Haul away your halyards,
It's our sailing time.
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: Get her on her course now,
Haul away your fore sheet,
It's our sailing time.
[14:40] BeeJee Boucher: Waves are rolling under,
Haul away down Channel,
On the evening tide.
[14:41] BeeJee Boucher: When my days are over,
Haul away for heaven,
God be by my side.
[14:41] BeeJee Boucher: It's our time to go now,
Haul away your anchor,
It's our sailing time.
[14:41] BeeJee Boucher: .
[14:41] BeeJee Boucher: bye Epi
[14:41] Pippa Rexen: sigh...thank you BJ
[14:41] Nber Medici: nice ?
[14:41] BeeJee Boucher: chad
[14:41] Chad Sawson: Thank you Beejee!
[14:41] Surfwidow Beaumont: :*')
[14:42] Chad Sawson: Another long time SL Sailing community member Ms. Surfwidow Beaumont is next. Surfy? :-)
[14:42] Surfwidow Beaumont: If I crash I'll be back as the terminator said. So bear with me ;)
[14:43] Chad Sawson: lol
[14:43] Surfwidow Beaumont: Wow this is difficult, when I made his remembrance video i must have broke down in tears a number of times.
[14:43] Surfwidow Beaumont: So here we go - deep breath!
[14:43] Surfwidow Beaumont: There are many words that we could use to describe epi and the fun he shared with us all - most of which are too rude to say here ;) but one that sums him up succinctly would be
[14:43] Surfwidow Beaumont: Charismatic
[14:43] Chad Sawson: bravo
[14:44] Pippa Rexen: good grief and I thought he was a prude [from what HE said]
[14:44] Surfwidow Beaumont: That word is bandied about often in television and for heads of state, but on a more local level I think epi embodied that perfectly.
[14:44] BeeJee Boucher: :)
[14:44] Surfwidow Beaumont: The dictionary states it thus
a. A rare personal quality attributed to leaders who arouse fervent popular devotion and enthusiasm.
b. Personal magnetism or charm
[14:44] Surfwidow Beaumont: I am sure you will agree he fits the bill well.
[14:45] Orca Flotta: a + b
[14:45] Surfwidow Beaumont: Lets just look at a. for a moment

[14:45] Surfwidow Beaumont: It was almost as if Secondlife was created for him. Wherever he went people just approached him and wanted to listen to what he had to say.
[14:45] Surfwidow Beaumont: It may well have been his expertise in philosophy and his ability to deliver messages in a non patronising way people liked.
[14:45] Surfwidow Beaumont: He had time for people, as his all too short life shows, if we had a moment of his time that was a minute from his life we had, and for that we should be eternally grateful.
[14:45] Pippa Rexen: that's his HR training
[14:46] Surfwidow Beaumont: ,
[14:47] Surfwidow Beaumont: For some we took hours of it, hours he gave freely for very little benefit to himself. Hovering over many a raceline organising events and overseeing races, truly a very giving person.
[14:47] Jane Fossett: HR= Hollywood Racing?
[14:47] Chad Sawson: :-)
[14:47] Surfwidow Beaumont: sorry bit laggy
[14:48] Surfwidow Beaumont: For this he was rewarded with the second part of a) above

[14:48] Pippa Rexen: Ha no Jane...Human Resource
[14:48] Surfwidow Beaumont: He had devoted friends and apart from the obvious Pippa and Fanci and other's, i am proud to have been one of them and of course Beejee Boucher too - you all know who you are and the list would swamp this eulogy if said.
[14:49] Chad Sawson: agreed
[14:49] Surfwidow Beaumont: He also had devotion from Sim owners who knew and trusted him with their reputations. Boat designers and creators who trusted his feedback when developing new boats and beta testing them. He bought my first ever product a air horn - he was just a nice guy who wanted to keep people enthused,
[14:49] Surfwidow Beaumont: If epi needed help or support we would all come running. If he needed anything created to assit him further we all came to his aid.
[14:49] Xi Larnia: sheet 10
[14:49] Xi Larnia: sheet -1
[14:49] Surfwidow Beaumont: I doubt i would have stayed were it not for him - So I owe him a lot in that sense. I was always ready to come to his aid and help him in anyway i can and this applies till this day - ever since.
[14:49] Surfwidow Beaumont: He helped me with my Dutch Barge - I had no clue without him hovering there at Boogdolt telling me off :'*) - laughing, "the sculpti sides look like sausages! Make them thinner!" he'd say!" After a day of trying, "hmmm that'll have to do i suppose." ;) I just wanted to please him too :). I have fond memories of helping him with the sailing lecture images sitting in his tako snapping away, happy days and times.
[14:50] Surfwidow Beaumont: Enthusiasm

This is a very obvious, there are so many photos of him teaching people how to sail and them getting out on the water as a result.
[14:50] Surfwidow Beaumont: Keeping the momentum and enthusiasm going is not easy, We have all seen some apathy in the sailing community from time to time, "Where have all the flowers gone?" Well epi is a whole garden thats disappeared now, and thats a space i doubt will be filled easily if at all! As they say we don't often mis something we take for granted until it's gone - and boy do I miss him now.
[14:50] Renault Cluny: is chair next to you empty?
[14:50] Surfwidow Beaumont: So we should appreciate these people more when they are here. Looking around I can see many who go unnappreciated and deserve more suport and respect. Let that be one of epi's legacies eh?
[14:50] Surfwidow Beaumont: Personal magnetism or Charm

Well Epi had many friends and many girls had a crush on him. But of course Pippa was clearly the soul mate who he knew was 'Mrs Right' and we all remember fondly the in-world wedding, whilst he was no doubt struggling to cope with, Pippa helping him along the way.
[14:51] Surfwidow Beaumont: Thank you for allowing us to be part of that Pippa it was my pleasure to create that lasting memory for us all to see, of course later you can still watch that wonderful wedding in full here but like any magnet - it needs a reverse polarity to stick and Pippa was that person.
[14:51] Surfwidow Beaumont: His Charm of course will remain with us and is his lasting memory for me especially.
[14:51] Surfwidow Beaumont: I think he'd be moved by the people turning out here today for him. But i am also pretty sure he'd want us to carry on and enjoy sailing and keep the pressure on for more investment in sailing, more time given by others to help and above all enjoy it as he did.
[14:51] Chad Sawson: :-) absolutely
[14:51] Surfwidow Beaumont: Perhaps a Regular Epicurus Emmons Memorial Trophy event? I'd happily put up some prizes :)
[14:52] Surfwidow Beaumont: Ill leave you with two final things

1. If you never knew epi I think this will help you understand just what he meant to us and to Second Life leave you with two final things

1. If you never knew epi I think this will help you understand just what he meant to us and to Second Life
[14:52] Surfwidow Beaumont: 2. I'd like to thank you all for buying the Remembrance Flowers. I will pass it across to Pippa as a small token towards his Floral tributes in Real Life once all the dispensers have been returned. I'd also like to thank those YC Commodores, sim owners and friends of Epi for hosting them. If you do not as yet have a flower there are more for sale over there by the memorial boat only 25L.
[14:52] Surfwidow Beaumont: What those flowers show is no matter what few lindens people had Epi mattered to them, they bought them, and they wore them with pride, a lasting inventory reminder of his name that a couple hundred people will happen across from time to time and go, "Oh yeah Epicurus Emmons!" I remember him x

And don't you forget it either ;*')
[14:53] Chad Sawson: :-)
[14:53] Surfwidow Beaumont: This is a sad time but it is also a celebration of his life and what he meant to us.
[14:53] Surfwidow Beaumont: I think it is fitting we all cheer and applaud him now.

This is for you Epi

(Cheers and applause)
