commented on RIP Bob Quinn
Thank you so much for doing this story. Bob was a friend, and an old roommate. He was fiercely independent as well as fiercly smart while being quirky and stubborn. His love for his beloved canine companion Harris was immense and he cared for her with the biggest heart.
That huge heart and incredible brain were a gift to the world through his needle exchange program and his wandering individual ministerings to those he connected with in the U District on his daily rounds of the area. Next time you eat a cookie or some noodles think of him.

That family gave you an amazing gift, your nephew! We people, we're like jagged rocks thrown into a polisher. Abrasives wear down our sharp edges eventually. That part of your family = abrasives...."With or without religion you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."—Steven Weinberg That abrasiveness has / will wear away so many of your sharp edges, which will lead to you and your nephew are walking away with an even bigger gift...compassion and empathy. Each of you will have more of these precious qualities than all of that part of your family combined. And that is an amazing gift as well.
