> Today, Thursday May 20th, 1999, Craig Cox was laid to rest.
> Most of us know him as Sir Thorbjorn Osis, King of Ealdormere. The
>funeral was held at Marshall Funeral Home at 3:00 p.m., and the
>mourners poured out of the chapel and into the sitting room. A rough
>estimate of attendance would be easily three hundred people.
> The religious part of the service was conducted by Rev. Bill
>Wells, who went to University with Rev. Cox (Craig's father) and, as he
>put it, "knew Craig from the day he was born, or shortly thereafter".
>The eulogy was delivered by Viscount Berus. He began by saying that
> Craig always described himself as "ten foot tall and bullet proof", and
>went on to make those of us in attendance laugh or weep at assorted
>memories of the man and the legend. Caitlin, Queen of Ealdormere
>(Nancy) read Dylan Thomas' "Death Shall Have No Dominion".
> Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in Craig's memory
>have been requested.
> When a loss like this happens, and thankfully not that often,
>it is easy to remember the good times, and the not-so-good times. But
>often, the entirety of the loss does not hit until we go to the next event
>and notice the Osis-shaped hole that seems to suddenly be there. He
>will be missed.
