Dave,

Your explanation does not fit the context or/and the event.

Nothing prevents Eric Meyer from prefacing his next book or a re-edition 
of any of his previous books from memorializing his loved daughter.

Every specification has an Acknowledgements section thanking the 
contributors "for their input and feedback on the www-style mailing 
list, have helped us with the creation of this specification".
