....briefly, this Saturday, July 27th from 12pm CDT until Midnight.

The forums will be unavailable during this moment of silence to honor our fallen brother, RichardM.

Thank you,
David Locke

A moment of silence. Well done, David.

Not nice, making me cry at work this morning.
Six years between trips - way too long.

Here here. And a beautiful eulogy on the front page.

Thanks for the heads-up. I hadn't visited the front page in a while. That is indeed a beautiful eulogy, David. A great description of Richard, what he brought to this chat group, and why we (and the world) are all so much the poorer for his passing.  I'm grateful for your words. I'll never visit Big Bend again without thinking of Richard.

Thanks for the heads up. I, too, rarely see the front page. Your sentiments are very well put, David.
