So I'll start it off by listing the first member to pass on, the Colonel. I never got to meet him in person, but he was one of the most interesting characters we've ever had here. He wrote some outstanding posts, always very insightful and to the point. It seemed he was from another age (an old hippie), who understood the changes going on around him. He had a great sense of humor and could always be counted upon to liven up a thread.
His passing was sudden. I got an email from a close friend informing me about it. It seems he spent a fair amount of his last months on the forums passing on his wisdom.
He's just one of several old hippies who've made their mark on this site.
We miss you Colonel! :(
P.S. I think most of his posts were in an early version of the forum that we don't have archived or accessible at this time.

He always had time and a kind word for everyone. Talented photographer that shared many pictures new and old with us and many were reknowned musicians. He knew a good wine and great music and shared his knowledge with anyone that would ask. I will always miss him and I don't believe he ever really understood how many people he truly touched.
Samson, catch me in chat and I will tell you about it. Its not a secret but I would prefer to tell it only to people that knew and loved him too.
Dandelion. I'm not sure how active Danny was on the forums but I did get to meet him. Good friend that had a knack at cheering you up with a few words when it was needed most.
You can't trust a bugger any farther that you can throw him,
theres nothing you can do about it,
so lets have a drink!
