koolgirl's son, David

I am deeply saddened to report that David, koolgirl's 6-year old son, has passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from pediatric myocarditis caused by coronavirus infection.

David was the sweetest child you will ever have the privilege to know. He was bright, funny, cheerful, autistic, and loved animals, especially his beloved dog, Gizzy, who passed late last year. He loved pirates, riding his brand-new bike that Santa brought, and Disney's Cars and Planes, and was thrilled to be starting Cub Scouts this year.

As some of you may know, koolgirl nearly lost her legs a few years ago due to peripheral venous insufficiency and resulting gangrene. She should be on disability, but has not yet been accepted. She works very long, hard hours to keep her little family together.

I hope this plea does not seem gauche, but we would like to request that donations for David's Memorial be made via PayPal to rockwaretech <at> gmail <dot> com.

Please note that time is of the essence; koolgirl's appointment with the funeral director is tomorrow morning.

(I do have koolgirl's express permission to post her email here for this purpose.)

In Memoriam

Samuel "David" Edwards

May 6, 2007 - January 26, 2014

Edit: Specified method for donation

Edit: Corrected email; added link to Funeral Home

    I know that I've been mad in love before And how it could be with you Really hurt me baby, really cut me baby How can you have a day without a night You're the book that I have opened And now I've got to know much more The curiousness of your potential kiss Has got my mind and body aching Really hurt me baby, really cut me baby How can you have a day without a night You're the book that I have opened And now I've got to know much more Like a soul without a mind In a body without a heart I'm missing every part

    I don't know you, but my deepest sympathy for such irreparable lost.

[shmem]: wait, what? you want that person to read the documentation for you?
[Lady_Aleena]: I might have to go with options instead of a straight list.
[Discipulus]: if more than 3 go for named variables LA
[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
