At 8:30, Pat Kennedy, one of the owners of the IYAC, called for quiet and an unnatural silence filled the crowded room. "At around this time Friday night, we lost a friend," said Kennedy. As he continued, the candles were all lit, and at the end of his brief but heartfelt tribute, he raised his glass: "To Jamie," he said, and a low but powerful rumble from the assembled group echoed his words: "To Jamie." In the silence that followed, a voice from the back of the room called: "Three cheers for Jamie." and the crowd roared out three hip-hip-hoorays. The final part of the ceremony, asked for by another voice in the crowd, was a moment of silence. During that moment, the candles were tilted on the bar, dripping hot wax, and then placed, still burning, on the varnished surface.
