In attendance and representing not only themselves but the massed good wishes and condolences of the SF/F/H community were myself, Deborah Newton, Brett Cox, Jeff and Ann VanderMeer, Michael Hutchins, and several other folks I neglected to speak to in the sad swirl of events.
The ceremony was lovely, intimate, and deeply touching. Insofar as any ritual can help alleviate the intense grief brought on by this shooting, this one did.
Mike and Jeri, supported by the presence of so many, are bearing up well, but are understandably exhausted. Their house is full of cards and flowers, but further missives would not go astray:
Pine Mountain, GA 31822
A second, more local memorial fund has been started in Jamie's name:
