I'm listening right now to Rez reading his long poem "Cataloguing the Flow: Elegy." There is an .mp3 embedded in his Star Tribune obituary.  It is comforting to hear his voice again, and so sad to realize I'll never hear it again in real life.

I'm going to miss Rez terribly, especially at Minicon. He was one of the favorites on the Lady Poetesses from Hell panel which performed on the last day of the con every year. I have many a fond memory of him in a granny shawl closed with a brooch and a silly hat, reading from his hilarious chapbook "One and Twenty Poems by Grace Lord Stoke." And trying (and failing) not to crack up.

Rez, I lit a candle for you at the All Saints service at my church today. I will miss you.

I am so sorry to hear this! He was a warm fixture in the Lady Poetesses from Hell, and I will miss him.
