I don't think I would say that TS.Com has diminished but there is a void that was not there not that long ago ... There are many contributors who are very knowledgeable and have a lot of insight on many subjects to take up the slack ... The fact that someone is missed says something about that person, but to say that life don't go on without them or there is a diminished value to things others have to offer is pushing it a little ... May all of those that have left us, Rest in Peace as the rest of us move on but remember them for what we valued in them ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
Proves that life is short, and gets darn shorter as the days pass.
I miss my shooting buddy, Bob Gallant, from here in Rapid City. We used to travel in his huge motorhome. What fond memories. Never met anyone who didn't really like Bob and his hospitality. The mhome was always open for a cup of coffee or beer.
His untimley death and his wife, Rita's, returning from a shoot where I was supposed to be driving, (semi hit their motorhome outside Kingman,AZ), kinda put the end to my competitive shooting.
Think of them often, as I do of Pat. Pat and I had some great phone and email conversations.
