Saturday, November 21, 2009 is a day of remembrance for Mr. Marcus. I will miss the service in San Francisco and the memorial lunch in Washington DC this weekend, but I wanted to share something.

I never got to spend time with Mr. Marcus. But it was my fault - not his. When I was single and lonely in San Jose last sumer, I sent emails to some Masters with profiles on Very few of them responded. But Mr. Marcus sent a wonderful email (two or three, in fact... we spoke back and forth for a bit), inviting me to come up to his place some weekend. He was very nice to me during a time I needed that from the leather community. I can't imagine anybody filling his shoes. Who would have the strength and patience to write about the San Francisco leather world week after week (after week, after week, after...)

I'm sure the leather community will continue. But I think it's because of Mr. Marcus that it's held together. There will be a new leather column, and someone else will write it. But nobody will be like him.
