gone forever

The title of this blog post is inspired by the haunting Alan Parsons Project song - but it does not reflect the truth of the believer - The Truth period.

These passings that I repertoriate in the comments section today are not filled with finality to no end. They indicate the end of one journey - and the beginning of another. Those who held these people dear - and anyone who has ever lost a dear close one - would do better to view things this way. For, without it, grief may prove to be unsurmountable - and I doubt any grief support of any kind - any psychological counselling on how to "deal" with grief and mourn better and "healthily" - can truly and effectively replace FAITH in something more...
faith in something far greater... Faith in The Truth.

They are NOT gone forever.
We will see them again.

Time Lyrics by Alan Parsons Project

Time, flowing like a river
Time, beckoning me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river
To the sea

Goodbye my love, Maybe for forever
Goodbye my love, The tide waits for me
Who knows when we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea

Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore

Goodbye my friends, Maybe forever
Goodbye my friends, The stars wait for me
Who knows where we shall meet again
If ever
But time
Keeps flowing like a river (on and on)
To the sea, to the sea

Till it's gone forever
Gone forever
Gone forevermore
Aspiring Actress Shot and Killed in NYC Jan 28, 12:05 PM (ET)

NEW YORK (AP) - An aspiring actress and playwright whose work explored life's darker sides was shot and killed as she confronted an armed robber during an early-morning street holdup.

The robber ran off with his accomplices, police said. No arrests have been made.

Nicole duFresne, 28, had just left a bar in a trendy section of the Lower East Side with her fiance and another couple early Thursday when they were approached by four or five men.

Witnesses told investigators that one of the men grabbed for the other woman's purse and duFresne intervened, asking, "What are you going to do, shoot us?" A man then fired one shot at her, police said.

"One of them said, 'Give me your money.' I didn't see he had a gun. I didn't understand what was happening," said Jeffrey Sparks, duFresne's 28-year-old fiance.

Sparks, an online music producer, said he pushed the mugger aside and was pistol-whipped on the face.

DuFresne died from a gunshot wound to her chest.

The couple, both from Minneapolis, moved to Brooklyn from Seattle two years ago and were to be married in October.

A graduate of Emerson College in Boston, duFresne was a founding member of the Present Tense Theater Project and acted with the LAByrinth Theater Co., according to her online resume. She wrote a play called "Burning Cage" with Mary Jane Gibson, who was with her and her fiance at the time of the shooting.

"Burning Cage" is about two women in a Boston asylum who are targeted for clandestine brainwashing experiments with LSD and shock treatments. The play toured in 2002 at fringe theater festivals in Canada and the United States.

DuFresne's other play, "Matter," is about an amnesiac whose apartment is taken over by a violent and seductive intruder. It was performed in Brooklyn in 2003.

Lucien Carr Dies; Introduced Beat Writers Jan 28, 11:05 PM (ET)

WASHINGTON (AP) - Lucien Carr, a journalist and a member of the inner circle of literature's Beat Generation, died Friday. He was 79.

Carr was undergoing treatment for cancer and collapsed at his home in Washington, said a friend, Jon Frandsen.

From the 1950s Carr was a prominent editor with United Press International, overseeing its national report in New York and later in Washington until he retired.

"He pushed hard to be fast and extra hard to be accurate," said Frandsen, who worked with Carr, "and he pushed hard to be graceful and powerful to get the point across."

A native of St. Louis, Carr was attending Columbia University in New York City in 1943 when he introduced classmate Allen Ginsberg to a friend, William S. Burroughs. Later, Carr brought together Ginsberg and Burroughs with another Columbia student, Jack Kerouac.

The three writers were to form the core of the Beat Generation. Their carefree attitudes toward life and a liberal social awareness helped create a postwar alternative culture. The novels of Kerouac ("On the Road") and Burroughs ("Naked Lunch") and the poetry of Ginsberg ("Howl") were among its literary mileposts.

Carr himself was not a contributor to the movement as a writer but was important to its development, said Dennis McNally, a friend of Carr's and a Kerouac biographer.

"His influence on Kerouac and on Ginsberg was really quite considerable," McNally said. "He was their intellectual peer and stimulated them creatively."

In 1944, Carr stabbed to death a friend, David Kammerer, while fending off an unwanted homosexual advance and then dumped the body in the Hudson River. Kerouac and Ginsberg helped persuade Carr to turn himself in, and he later spent two years in prison. He remained close to Kerouac and Ginsberg throughout their lives.

Survivors include three sons - Simon, Ethan and Caleb Carr, the author of "The Alienist,""The Angel of Darkness" and other novels.
On this sad occasion, I do not feel like putting up with bad translations - or revising them, as I did with one eye open for that "mad goat" thing... so... the French original follows... suffice it to say a great one died - if you know French cinema, you will know who it is. If not, think of a combination of Jackie Mason and Jack Black... maybe... and you get this Jack... the late, great Jacques Villeret.

Mort du comédien Jacques Villeret AFP 28.01.2005 - 18:48

Jacques Villeret, l'interprète inoubliable de "La soupe aux choux" et du "Dîner de cons", est mort vendredi à 53 ans d'une hémorragie interne au centre hospitalier d'Evreux (Eure), a-t-on appris auprès de son entourage.

Pris d'un malaise alors qu'il se trouvait dans sa maison de campagne près d'Evreux, où il se trouvait avec des invités, l'acteur a été hospitalisé dans l'hôpital de la ville où il est décédé.

Acteur de composition, Jacques Villeret a incarné très souvent le Français moyen, gentil personnage rondouillard assez naïf, souvent souffre-douleur.

Formé au Conservatoire de Tours, puis de Paris, où il a comme professeur Louis Seigner, Jacques Villeret fait ses premières armes au théâtre ("Occupe-toi d'Amélie", "Les Fourberies de Scapin"). C'est Yves Boisset qui, le premier, lui donne sa chance au cinéma, dans "R.A.S." (1972).

"La Soupe aux choux" (1981) l'avait imposé définitivement aux yeux du grand public.

Après un premier César du meilleur second rôle en 1978 pour "Robert et Robert", il en avait obtenu en 1998 un second, celui du meilleur acteur, pour "Le dîner de cons", de Francis Veber.

Il incarne dans ce film le rôle de François Pignon, qu'il avait créé au théâtre. Ce sera un succès phénoménal (plus de 9 millions de spectateurs). Il enchaîne ensuite trois films de Jean Becker, "Les Enfants du marais" (1999) et "Un crime au paradis" (2000), et "Effroyables jardins" (2002).

Fidèle à son image de Français moyen, il est un grand-père chargé de garder son petit fils perturbé par la disparition de sa mère dans le drame "Malabar Princess" de Gilles Legrand ou encore un père compréhensif mais lâche face à la redoutable Folcoche interprétée par Catherine Frot dans "Vipère au poing" (2004) de Philippe de Broca.

Il renoue avec la comédie en interprétant le Calife dans "Iznogoud" (2004, sortie le 9 février prochain) de Patrick Braoudé, où il donne la réplique à Patrick Braoudé.

Au théâtre, il avait joué notamment dans "La Contrebasse" (1990) de Patrick Süskind et en 2000 dans "Jeffrey Bernard est souffrant" de Keith Waterhouse.

Jacques Villeret était chevalier de la légion d'honneur.

Investigators Look Into N.Y. Bus Crash
Jan 30, 6:56 PM (ET)

WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) - Investigators on Sunday sought to determine why a bus chartered for a Canadian hockey team swerved and rammed a parked tractor-trailer so hard that the bus split in half lengthwise, killing four people and injuring 19.

Visibility at the time of the Saturday afternoon wreck in western New York was good, and the highway was dry and clear, state police Maj. Steven White said.

White said the bus driver, Ryan Comfort of Ontario, told police that he hit something in the road before the crash, but investigators had not yet verified that.

White said Comfort, being treated at a hospital in Rochester, N.Y., was being watched by a state trooper to ensure that he does not leave the United States.

No charges had been filed. "However, that doesn't mean (the driver) is not a person of interest," Livingston County District Attorney Thomas Moran told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

The National Transportation Safety Board sent a three-member team to investigate, NTSB spokesman Paul Schlamm said.

The Coach Canada bus was chartered by the Windsor Wildcats, a club hockey team of women ages 18 to 21. After a morning game in Rochester, it was taking some of the players, as well as family members and coaches, to a ski center when it struck the truck on Interstate 390, 27 miles south of Rochester.

The driver of the tractor-trailer, owned by Xtra Lease Inc. of Mechanicsburg, Pa., had parked it on the shoulder and was outside the cab when the bus rear-ended the rig, police said.

The truck driver, Ernest Dale Zeiset, 42, of Womelsdorf, Pa., and three bus passengers were killed. The bus passengers were identified as the team's coach Richard Edwards, 46, and his 13-year-old son Brian, from LaSalle, Ontario, and Catherine Roach, 50, of Windsor, Ontario, the mother of a player.

Friends described Edwards as a well-known figure in the community who loved coaching hockey and baseball. His wife, Sheila, was the team trainer and manager. His 21-year-old daughter, Kelly, was the goalie on the team. Both survived the crash.

"They were a true sports family," said Kevin Beaudoin, president of the LaSalle Minor Hockey Association, where Edwards also coached. "Whatever they did, they did as a family so it's not ironic that they were on that bus."

Three passengers were in guarded condition Sunday at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, hospital spokeswoman Leslie Orr said. She said Comfort was in satisfactory condition with a knee injury.

Dean Lapierre, president of Windsor Minor Hockey, said he worked with Edwards at a car manufacturing plant.

"This affects the whole community, the whole hockey community, which is so tight around here," Lapierre said.
