On February 20, 2001, Dan Casey, OS/2 advocate
and president of Warpstock, passed away. In his memory, the Warpstock Committee
has donated $1,000 to Edelweiss House,
an organization that helps homeless children.
The mission of Edelweiss House is to provide a
family home life for abandoned and homeless children. This goal will be accomplished
by construction of homes in the Indianapolis area, where a married couple will head
each home and care for several of the children. By providing a wholesome family
environment, the children will receive the love, care, and education they deserve.
Dan was co-owner and vice president of sales of
Kool Vent, a family-owned business in the home construction industry. Dan believed
strongly in the mission of Edelweiss House and was looking forward to seeing the
construction of the first home.
Dan will always be remembered by family, friends,
and OS/2 users around the world. The Warpstock Committee hopes that this donation
will one day help save the life of a child, and we invite you to also contribute.

The 5th annual Warpstock conference will be held
October 6-8, 2001, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is produced by Warpstock, Inc.,
a North Carolina non-profit corporation. The Warpstock annual conference is a gathering
of OS/2 users, developers, and vendors from around the world for the purpose of
education and advocacy. More information is available at the Warpstock 2001 website,
