I'm not entirely sure what to say here, because I hardly know how I feel. If numbness is a state then I'm pretty sure I'm there. This is just too strange and too sad and my condolences go out to his friends and family.
Although those in the Supernatural fandom never knew Kim Manners his contribution to Supernatural and the heart he brought to the show means that his death has affected us all. Many of my flist have expressed a wish to do something to honour this and his memory,pocketfullof is collecting donations in Kim Manners memory for the American Lung Association here if you would like to give, she is also open to other suggestions.
I don't want this to be an issue, I am not attempting to cajole anyone into participating, this is just the way I would like to give a kind of thanks to Kim Manners.
