Just at such a loss for words about Bin other than I will miss him.

I'm sorry for the loss of Bin and all here who had a chance to meet and know him.

May your memories of him bring a smile at some point during this difficult time.

Bin's passing makes me want to tell you all how much you mean to me - everyday. You make my days more fun, more connected to the playa in the default world. Thank you.

When we were saying goodbye at the hof we both knew we wouldn't meet again. We were strangers that had shared some conversation the day before. He wished me such a sweet farewell. "You have a good time at the burn and in everything you do." He was smiling. A very nice man.

I didn't know him but the way you all write about him makes me sure that he was a good one. To those of you that did know him - I offer my hugs and comfort, it's hard to lose a member of our community and while his passing makes me sad, I can't help but smile at the way you all have drawn together to remember him.

Sry to hear about Ben :(

Also sad to hear my HS Art teacher passed on ;( He was the 1st person to buy one of my clay sculptures , it was a viking with the horned helmet . He payed 50.00 for it which was a mths rent back in 1971 :) Here he was showing us how to load the kiln .

I reached out to Bin's brother, who broke the news on the bookfaces, about including him on next year's Remembrance Plaque (the last call for this year was July 20). After checking with Bin's son, he gave his approval, saying this in part:
I know Jonathan would be honored (though he would never admit it) to be remembered in such a way. Attending The Man was always a dream for him and he so enjoyed being there.
It's bittersweet to know that the one year Bin camped with the Boobs was the one year I couldn't be there, but I remember the flag he made for us the year before that. TITWI, Piney, I hope you'll be bringing that flag out with you this year; I might even try and talk the CO into flying it from MASH's guard tower.

So long, Bin. What a shame to lose you. Such a wonderful man whom I only had the pleasure of meeting a few times. All the love on here... damn leaky eyes...

Rest in peace, bin. Alas that I never met you. It was truly my loss, seeing how much you are loved.

Let us all remember that some part of bin will remain alive within us as long as we hold the memory dear. Hugs all around.
