put an entry into his log that brought my wife to tears, and would have done the same to me had I not already known about the situation. There is no doubt in my mind that web logs are serious forms of communication that can have immeasurable impact on peoples lives. Even if I were a total stranger to www.ekosm.com I would have been moved pretty deeply by Erik’s feelings, expressed for anyone to see.
While I didn’t know Dale personally, I knew him through Erik, and I too share in Erik’s feelings on his death. Dale’s physical limitations have been removed, his trial complete. He endured to the end and his strength and courage will not be forgotten.
