As its difficult to know why poets from the past are no longer here,I have adapted Anthony's great idea and am posting a series of some poets poetry from a decade and more ago.

Hi Brian, I think this is a great idea. Best wishes Anthony

Anyone know whether Michael Jordan should be here or am I mistaken that there was a blog to that effect a while back?

Thanks for letting us, who are "relatively new" to PS to honor them; and for allowing us to learn from them through their poetry. God bless you.

Cherl Dunn is the one whose name I could not recall . I came here this morning searching for a poet whose name starts with Ch, but then I saw what Jan wrote and that helped me to know. Lucilla mentioned by Jan was lovely too. You should add both those ladies' names to the list.

OH YES!! It was so sad about both of them and you have made me remember the lady I was trying to recall below here: Cherl Dunn. I knew it was something with CH. OH my gosh, I went to her very last poem and saw she had dedicated it to ME!! It was about the Mad Hatter. I guess because I am always running around feeling late!

thanks for this reminder list for poets to read the works of all these beautiful people. I was friends with Linda and Tim but did not know the others very well. Anyway, will try to remember this one lady who died several years ago and it was such a shock to me! She wrote very long poems. Does anyone remember?

I'm remembering more about him now! I think he did blogs, right? Or maybe someone else did the blogs.

Just that archaic poet was Chan Hurst - you knew him

Anthony, I love your idea that you are doing with this uncontest to honor our poets who passed away. I know another one but her name is not coming to me right now and I need to get to bed. I will try to think of it and let you know tomorrow! Also, I think you said it's fine if different poets honor the same poet more than once, right? It will have to be that way in order to fill your contest!

I don't think he has. Perhaps Joe is spending more time with his grandchildren. He certainly was one of the best writers here!

I looked for an obit for Robert Quigley and found quite a few. Without more info about him, I'm not sure. Do you remember where he lived or where he was from?

I found this article about Joe and thankfully, no obit. I remembered that he was from Ohio and had a younger, adopted son. https://portal.clubrunner.ca/793/stories/joe-flach-new-president

I remember when he died. We had shared some music and became good friends. So sorry when I heard of his death. He seemed so vital!
