Occasionally, I do weird things. Ask anybody.

One such thing is communicating with the dear departed. Let me explain.

It was just over a year ago that my Uncle Danny left this mortal coil. Imagine John Lennon with multiple advanced degrees, and you have a mental image. Brilliant, gentle, kind, pleasant, humble (basically the antithesis of the rest of my family, myself included), Danny was a wonderful man, and we miss him.

Which is why (here’s the weird part) I still endorse him on LinkedIn whenever I get the chance.

I may be alone in this, but I doubt it…despite the condition of our physical being, our virtual footprint remains long after. It’s not just Uncle Dan; I see a few friends and colleagues that pop up from time to time. Kinda creepy, and also kinda heart-warming.

So, I endorse him. And that’s a weird thing I won’t change.
