Palinka memorial

P's parents have requested no flowers at the funeral but instead would like to raise enough money for the hospital he was treated at to buy an ECG machine and ketone monitor as a lasting and useful memorial.

Re: Palinka RIP Jan 2016

What to say? He was a good friend to me, as he was to so many of us. I've been missing you for months and now I'll miss you forever. I've just opened the twee little bottle of palinka I've been saving for...I don't know what, and raising my glass.

To P - friend, mentor and gentleman.

Have a Sipsmith gin and Fever Tree tonic. That's my 'oooh fancy' choice at the moment.

Re: Palinka?...

I'm clutching at pretty tiny straws here, but if they're saying to leave it another week or two then they haven't written him off entirely just yet. Have to hope though...

Re: Palinka?...

I will not allow myself to cry until I hear something, anything, definite. Until then, this gin is for Palinka.

I'd LOVE to see a moose in real life! Aren't they about eight feet tall? Biggest thing we've got in the woods near my house is a badger.

Re: Celebrate life, not death!

Got to be honest, the idea of guns perturbs me slightly, but if I ever visit the States I'd love to have a go. As it is, I will have to make do with shooting this vodka instead. Cheers! You are quite welcome to go on a hunt with us. Vodka shooting is a great way to practise for hunting camp hehehe ...

Re: Palinka?...

Sad news indeed. Although I certainly had my issues with him we worked through all of them and moved into friendship territory. Do we know who sent the emails? I believe Alex is a friend of Palinka's of long standing, and he's really close to the family. The update is positive, let's all send our t...
