Jarkko Tribute

Postby Joe Way » Fri Sep 03, 2010 5:25 am

One of the most pleasurable parts of the Krakow Event for me was to represent North America in a thank you and tribute to Jarkko in congratulations for the 15th year of this wonderful site. Andrew Darbyshire represented "Down Under" and Sebastian Korta represented Europe.

The fans in Krakow all contributed to a couple of books for Jarkko that we all autographed.

Here is Arlene's great capture of the presentation:

Congratulations again, Jarkko and thanks for your great patience and unselfish presence. We are all proud to call you friend (and thanks also to Eija who assists you so well at the events and takes such wonderful photos).

We owe so much of it ALL to Jarkko... without him and those 15 years of Leonard Cohen online history building, where would we all be? Not together in Krakow... it's mind boggling just trying to sort it.

Thanks, again, Arlene, for capturing those precious moments of sincere thank you's for Our Other Man 8) ... and, Joe, for bringing it to us here.

How fortuitous that the 15th anniversary of the Files coincided with the Krakow event. Thank you Joe for providing the link to Arlene's capture (thank you Arlene) of Jarrko being feted. Congratulations Jarrko on the anniversary of this most resourceful site!!!

Warmest regards,

I echo what everyone has said.

This is where it all began - where would we be without this site?
Thanks for all you do, Jarkko!
