I am re-posting this info here for lack of a better place. It was originally posted by Tracey Worcester



For those who may not have heard, programmer, long-term member of local SF
fandom, and all-around good man Andy Vinton died from complications of
cancer on Friday, April 6, 2012.

The following is a list of upcoming events for people who might need to be
around others in grief during this difficult time. Additional notification
will go out when times and venues are confirmed for some events. You are
welcome to cross-post to other lists you think would be appropriate, but if
so, please cross-post the updates, as well. Specifically, if you can cross
post to SEMISLUG, the Dorsai Irregulars, and the Canton Board Gaming Group,
please do. Mike, could you forward on to coworkers? Lorraine/Glynes/Mary,
can you post to various Earthwalk groups as appropriate?

Anyone who wishes to contribute or participate, feel free to email me
questions or suggestions. ....Tracy Worcester, Former Chair, ConFusion,
Co-Founder, PenguiCon

Tomorrow, Friday, April 13th: Smallish family-centered memorial at Nie
Funeral Home in Ann Arbor
10:00 a.m. Viewing
11:00 a.m. Service

Family are requesting limited community attendence due to space
limitations. Multiple other events in the near future, see below.

Saturday, April 14th: Tracy's Low-Key BDay Gathering and Huddling for
Warmth
6-9 p.m. Corner Brewery, Ypsilanti, MI

Open house style gathering for all who wish to come. No memorial events
will be performed, but for those who need a chance to be quietly social
with others who understand your sense of shock and loss, come on out. The
Corner has a style quite like the old Tios, but much, much bigger; we
should be able to take and release a cluster of table as population shifts
require. No birthday gifts expected or required.

Tuesday, April 17th: Tuesday at Tios with Andy's dad
7 p.m., Tios Mexican Cafe, Ann Arbor, MI

Andy's dad and possibly his mom wanted to come out for a Tios night to get
a chance to meet some of Andy's friends. Standard Tuesday at Tios
protocol, email if you need clarification of what that means. (:

PROBABLE? Sunday, April 22nd: Andy Vinton Community Memorial at Great
Oaks Cohousing in Ann Arbor, MI

This is a work in progress, but Andy's girlfriend Mary and I are
collaborating with several people to pull together a memorial, with
speaking from friends, words from Andy's minister, and likely board gaming
to follow. We should have confirmation of date availability within the
next day or so.

POSSIBLE? Andy Vinton Memorial Room Party at PCon?

For those planning on attending PenguiCon, we may be doing a room party in
honor of Andy.

*hugs* to you all, and don't forget to tell the people you love that you
love them. Time may be shorter than you think. :(
