"I grew up with this show. And in a way....I grew up with him"

always gets me goosebumps. But especially that day at the con - in that dark room. Those words of Tiff's VO were_________

brought me back to watching this. I remember how all my phile fangirl-friends cried.
We will never forget his work. It has become part of us.

Gom really hit a nerve there in October when we watched it together at the con.
Because obviously we were having fun at the con- but when I saw this, sitting between all the other philes in this large room, lights out, - it became clear that without him much of that (the fandom passion) maybe wouldn't even exist. That we owe him so much. Well- it's not possible to express it exactly with words.
But that day in that room- it became VERY evident what an impact his work has/had. And it just feels wrong that he isn't among us ( and his family) anymore. Just...wrong.

This tribute is so beautiful and moving. I think none of us at the X-Con cold hold back their tears. I think it captures the essence of his talent and spirit perfectly!

I LOVE IT... And I cried when I first saw it at X-CON! Thank you Gomnitus!

I just realized that Gomnitus used Coldplay to go with the first part... boahhh I played that with students last week at a festival... wow it gets another perspective...
