    Re: Fred Coleman (FredKC) Has Passed Away

    Hi Beth, Really good to see you.

    Alia sent me the notification at 6:23 this morning but I didn't check my email until after 9:30 am. I had an unusually rough night with sleep last night and the last time that I recall seeing was almost 4:00 am until I got up for good around 8:00.

    When I first read the email (still not fully awake) I was really confused and didn't know what to think. So I came onto the forum to check his profile page and it said he was last on at 8:22 am this morning. The times didn't compute for me, and at the moment it didn't occur to me that it was probably Alia who logged on with his account, so I texted his phone with a simple 'How's it going' type of message. While I was waiting for a reply Ross called me on Skype phone to find out more, and as I was talking to Ross I got the confirmation reply back from Fred's wife Pat. It hit me hard.

    If I sound like I'm babbling it's because I was completely shocked by the news and very upset.

    I'm sorry but I can't think or type coherently right now.

    Much Love
    Harley

    I am so sorry to hear of Fred’s sudden passing.
    He was a Shaman. Magical.

    I only had the pleasure of reading his posts from afar on the forums.
    My heart goes out to all of you who had the good fortune to have him in your lives.

    Fred was blessed with integrity, wit, compassion and exceptional balance.
    The real deal.
    A class act.
    I will miss his musings and presence.

    Well Adam, I had my strange incident. I went with my husband today who plays poker professionally. Tuesdays and Saturdays are quads days at our local casino poker room. On those days you have to have a pocket pair (this is no limit Texas Holdem) and flop (not turn or river), quads (or 4 of a kind as most people think of it) and in addition to the pot won, the house gives you $500 more on top of that. About 20 minutes in my husband gets pocket 9s and flops quads. Quads are so tough to get (especially on the flop), he hasn't done that in almost a year, and he plays almost every day. You're all thinking this doesn't sound strange, but Fred died on the 9th at 9 at night. He also loved to go to casinos when him and Pat got out of town. In my mind Fred was there and had some part in it.

    Amen. You know the thing is 'any' such incident exceeds what one expects in the normal course of a day. I, for one, just don't believe in coincidences until proven otherwise. Thanks for posting this...because I am still wondering what the heck happened in my case. Just no explanation that would make sense.

    I haven't heard but I guess Fred has been put to rest...I'm hoping it was a great send off, as he deserved.

    I miss him! Rest in peace dear Fred.
