BillD, a great forum member has passed away...

Post by TNRabbit » Tue Oct 18, 2011 8:16 am

Has anyone heard from or talked to BillD lately? His last visit here was Wednesday, Oct 12.

I sent him an email last week & no response. Hope he's OK...

[EDIT:] Tom here, the original title of this thread was "BillD is MIA". The thread title has been changed to reflect what it is now so that folks here on the forum could know what's happened. RIP Bill, for you will be extremely missed. Thank you for the chance to have been blessed with your presence and as a forum, our prayers go out to your family and friends. Thank you so very much for the contributions you made to the forum, the military and in life. It has been a pleasure and an honor knowing and chatting with you.

He went to Reese's house and then off to Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.
He has to get some serious surgery also.
I'll go find the link.

Bill is a class act. I wish him all the best.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Well, I'm not dead yet. But getting ready for surgery is harder than it looks. They want me perfectly healthy (or at least everything fixed that isn't related to the heart), but I keep breaking after they fix one thing. It seems that fixing things on me causes other things to break. I got an angiogram, and now have blockages in the right arm and leg vascular systems.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Broke can be always be fixed, just might need a bigger hammer. Good luck Bill tell them to be careful with those reamers!
