Just came across some news ,that in light of my professed cynicism in my previous post, had some extra umph in its symbolic punch to my face.
I had some good conversations online with him,enjoyed a number of his posts and of course railed against a number of others. I had some nice gentlemanly moments as well as a spat on one thread and follow up post that was pretty nasty.
In the shadows of anonymity that the internet provides it is easy to forget sometimes that there are real human beings on the other end of those pages,threads,comments etc.
I hope his loved ones can find peace and the strength to move past this loss. For me I’ll lift a glass and say God Bless,it was indeed a pleasure to have met you HP. Rest in Peace Jim.
