Ashley

April 3rd, 2008 by Editor B

Everybody’s favorite passionately profane New Orleans überpatriot blogger Ashley Morris has passed on.

I really don’t know anything about the circumstances of his death except to say he was way too young. This is a tragedy.

And I really don’t know what to say, except that I sure will miss his voice. I didn’t really know Ashley in “real life” but I read his blog and he put so much of his heart and soul into his writing that I felt like we were buddies. And we collaborated on a couple geeky endeavors online, so I guess in a way we were. I’d bump into him from time to time at places like the Mother-in-Law Lounge or the Parkway Bakery. It’s disconcerting to realize that won’t ever happen again.

I still can’t believe this.

    That is very sad. in three days is the anniversary of the death of a friend of mine who was a prolific blogger and podcaster. It seems so strange in the digital world, but its important for people to store their passwords for safekeeping with someone that they trust. He had all kinds of business and connections happening with his podcast (mainly academic) but no one had a password to access it or put an update on it or let others know of his passing. People were still discovering his passing 6 months later because besides his work website and a new blog created in his memory, there was no way to get the word out.

    I am glad his wife can access the support of the blogosphere in this time of need.

    I know, Bart. I feel the same way. It doesn’t seem real.

    Bart, miss you at coffee in the mornings.
    I had a cigar with Ash just Wednesday past. We had a member of Cigar Weekly come to New Orleans, and a few of us gathered at the Canal Blvd. location of The Bulldog for a smoke. Thursday was his and Hana’s anniversary, but they came to meet us after their dinner last Wednesday.

    Bart,
    Sorry for everyone mouring Ashley including my sister in Asbury Park, N.J. She cried when she heard the news.
