Death of a fellow Pirate...

9 posts in this topic

We have lost a good Pirate..

It is with great sadness that I tell you that Bad Jack, Jim Potkey the lead singer for “Pirates of the Black Swan” passed away yesterday morning from what they believe was a blood clot.

Kate says that the stress of losing the house and all their pets to fire was most likely too much.

She is looking for help from any local black Powder folks since his wish was to have his ashes shot from a cannon. If anyone has a contact, please email me off list and I will get you in touch with the family.

Such grand music that will now not be heard.

Thanks mates,

There are no words for the sadness. First the fire, now this. Best wishes to his family, and crew.

Very sad news, Bess. Condolences to his family, and I really hope someone has a cannon that can shoot his spirit to the stars. ;=}

Sincerest condolences to his family. I raise a glass to him, and the music we'll sorely miss.

Light the candle

Set the flame

For all who have passed

And all who came

Make a toast

Raise a glass

To our hosts

Those who past

A true light

Comes from inside

Those who fight

For that which is right

Perform for us

My wonderful man

For even from dust

A performer you'll stand

May our lights shine in your honor and may your inspiration be felt throughout time.

It is an admirable request he makes. I have made the same arrangements with my old Civil War friends; to have my ashes blasted across the lake from a six-pounder when my time comes. Were we closer I am sure it could be arranged, but such a distance makes it nearly impossible. I hope you find someone nearby willing to do this thing for his memory and the peace of his family.
