My Dad

June 3 -  Hello, everybody.  I don't know how to say this other than to just say that my Dad, Kelly Mundt, has died.  He was 66.  It happened suddenly and unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 1st.  It has been so hard to...well, to do anything.  We are all in shock.  We are having a memorial service on Saturday.  Here is a link to my Dad's full obituary.  I hope you'll forgive me if I am once again absent from the WOMP-Blog for a while.  Thank you all for the messages of support.

"His life was gentle, and the elements
So mixed in him that Nature might stand up
And say to all the world, 'This was a man!' "

-William Shakespeare

You have my condolences, my friend.

Thank you, my friend. Dad had been enjoying my copies of your Jake Wilde comics, by the way. You've lost a fan.

That is terribly sad news. You're in our thoughts!

Thanks. It means a lot to us here, especially since you kind of knew Dad. He looked forward to seeing familiar faces at last year's FallCon, but I had to point you out before he suddenly recognized you; "Oh! That's the hippie guy!" I guess I have never thought of you as a "hippie," but at least he remembered you!

People always seem to remember me as "The Hippie Guy." I guess there are worse ways to be remembered!

It was cool to meet your dad. He seemed like a genuinely nice guy. (Just like you!)

I'm very sorry to hear that. :(

Thanks, Nathan. I always meant to tell you that Dad really liked your Red Desert story.

Sorry it took me so long to comment. I know how hard it is to lose a parent.

I'm glad I had the chance to meet your dad at FallCon last year.

Thanks for writing a little note. I'm so happy that you had the chance to meet Dad.

Thanks, Scott. I'm so happy that you got to know Dad a little. He really enjoyed talking to you, and even asked about how you were doing when I got back from SpringCon.
