Welcome to the SSQQ Memorial
Stories written by Rick Archer 

The dark side of having a large community is that the inevitable must visit us occasionally. 

SSQQ largely avoided the Specter of Death for many years. 

But starting in the summer of 2007, our good luck started to change.  That was when we lost John Jones, a very close friend to many people here at SSQQ.  His passing was very sad for all of us. 

Little did we know it at the time, but John's loss was just the start of a very rough stretch for SSQQ.

After losing only four people in a seven year span, suddenly we lost six more people within the space of one year.

However it took the shocking death of two men - Gary Schweinle and Michael Friedberg - on the very same day (September 12, 2008), to convince me it was time to establish a permanent Memorial site on the SSQQ website in the memory of all our friends who have left us.

Here are their stories.
