The faces of Som

Isamu "Som" Jordan in 2004. (Amanda Smith)

Facebook has its downsides, for sure, but one thing it does well is connect communities that grieve.

Som Jordan, freelance music critic with a long history at The Spokesman-Review, died yesterday. See story.

On Facebook, people who knew Som from all the worlds he traveled in posted photos of him from weeks, months and years ago. I know when his family has time or energy to go through the posts, they will appreciate these photos and kind words about Som.

He touched thousands of lives. Facebook offered just a glimpse into all those he knew. And those who loved his creative spirit. Blessings, Som.
