Bob, I've been off the site for some time now and am extremely saddened by the news of Deans passing.
When I was writing more diligently a few years back, Dean and I shared some similar childhood memories and shenanigans that I'll never forget.

I saw in the reviews Tom negated your idea (I'm not surprised). Maybe someone could sponsor a contest in his memory?

Well my friend, I hope to be back soon. I'm formulating a baseball story I'd like to see how it flies. What better place then here....

Be well, John

I certainly agree with that proposal and support it in whatever way is necessary. Dean was everything he could be here: creative, helpful, and a positive contributor to others' success.

Did Tom answer? That sounds like a great idea. I didn't know Dean well but he was always encouraging and gave me great advice. I hope the site does set that precedent.

Yes! The Dean Kuch award. what a fine thing that would be. He was a superb contributor to the site who will be sadly missed. We've lost some greats this year, for sure. I'm sure Tom will take this idea up.

    Hello my friend. Tom turned it down. (: Said, as I thought, it wouldn't be fair to writers before him nor after. He is listed in the eternal flame section on the site though. Bob

Superb idea, Bob.
I really, have nothing
else to say.

So, I will ramble.
The poem/letter, Dean wrote to/about his daughter, I found heartbreaking.

As, actually, I find myself
upon hearing of Dean's death.

Doug

    Hi, Doug. thanks for your supposrt in this. Tom turned it down though because he said it would not be fair to great writers past or in the future. (go figure) Bless you, my friend. Bob

    Thanks for your support in this, Marilyn. Tom turned it down though...said it would not be fair to writers of the past or future. :( Bob

    I understand his POV. A good idea just the same.

Hi, Bob. This is indeed sad news. I am shocked to hear of Dean's passing. How are you, my friend? I have been busy attending to a couple of books. One day I may even get them published, (not for the want of trying LOL.) Thank you for putting this dedication to Dean on the site. Cheers, Giddy

What a fine tribute paid to Dean. You have raised peoples' consciousness about what a magnificent writer of the horror genre he is. Hopefully, Tom will think it is a great idea. What a strong inspiration his writing will be for all who love and write in that genre. There may even be an increase in the number of participants. You have written a compelling appeal.

    This was Tom's response, Liz: Received this morning:

    "It would not be fair to other writers in the past or the future. He is listed in the eternal flame section. that is all we can do. Tom"

reply by Liz O'Neill on 27-Aug-2019
    Too bad. But at least Dean knows and anyone who reads your tribute knows and I am sure concurs with your intentions. And I appreciate it.

What a great and thoughtful idea honoring a writer here on the site. I did not know him and possibly did not read any of his work. I've read very few horror stories. But then maybe I have read his work. May Dean rest in peace.

    He wrote poetry and prose very well Go to his poage by clicking Dean Kuch in the "find a member section" It will be worth your while, my friend. Bob P S (DeanO designed the covers for both of my published detective novels. : )

What an excellent suggestion! Nobody would appreciate the irony of an award named for him more than Dean! I truly hope Tom goes along with it...is there some way to create a roster of all who would support this idea! If so--let me know! I would be honored to sign on! Your huge heart is showing, Bob... A "monster" of a great idea!--Karenina

    Thank you Karen. Tom turned it down though this morning. Says just as I thought...it would not be fair to others in the past or future. (: Bob

reply by karenina on 27-Aug-2019
    SO---I propose you create your own contest and call it the "Inimitable Dean Kuch Macabre Poem"-----(there's more than one way to skin a cat!)-------Karenina

reply by the author on 27-Aug-2019
    Go ahead, my friend. Good idea and good luck. : ) Bob
