His Name was dIon

Time zones are weird, but they can be interesting. Kimberly pointed out that our dear fallen Aussie would probably take a perverse pleasure in knowing that his American friends had to tell one another: "dIon died tomorrow, at 2:30 in the morning."

Black humor indeed, but sometimes that's all we have. Dion was an incredibly funny, incredibly brilliant guy, who I enjoyed meeting during my 3 visits to CSS, and with whom I wish I had spend more time since.

Rest in Peace dIon. It's getting close on 2:30 here... I'll light a candle for you. I hope the afterlife is as raucous and brilliant as you made your life here!
