I have an idea, how about retiring people's avatars when they pass?
I had five bypasses twenty-two years ago. Lost forty percent of my heart muscle. They say heart muscle can't be re generated. That is a big lie. I have proof mine was. I am back playing tennis, singles, back at a competitive level, 4.0. I am 71 expecting to live a long time. And I get to enjoy the Gators a few more years. God is good! Added note: if I am playing a Seminole fan I play at a 4.5 level. I believe the Gators will react the same way this year.
Sad to lose one of the good guys.
Sad to hear. We read and hear about death all the time these days. When a death occurs within your circle - even a "virtual" circle like GCMB - it hits harder, obviously. I don't know who Hotrod was, but we are a bit worse off without him - one less voice that shared the one common interest we all share - a passion for Gator football. I hope he's found eternal peace on the other side, and that his loved ones find comfort as they grieve for him.
RIP. Prayers to Hotrod and family.
RIP, Hotrod. I hear heaven is full of roadsters.
Sorry to hear it.
Thoughts and prayers to Hotrods family and friends.
I think that's a great idea
I send out a monthly email to members that haven't logged in for a long time. It shows a list of recent threads and asks them to jump back into the fray. Evidently, a relative of Hotrod was monitoring his email and replied with the news. Message boards are funny things. Generally speaking, we don't know each other personally yet feel a strange closeness, strange enough that when someone passes it hits harder than you'd ever believe. I appreciate anyone who takes time out of their day to contribute to the board, that's why I try and offer recognition whenever possible, such as birthday threads. There are members here in which I disagree with in almost every aspect of life, yet it would bother me if they were suddenly gone. There's a connection there that has been built on years and years of near-daily interaction....all with our love for the Gators as our foundation.
Well said Senor Ox!
Farewell on your new journey. Rest in great peace, Hotrod. Grace to all the Hotrod family and friends.
The longer I live, the more people I know get pulled... at least it's to a safe and peaceful place.
Wow, terrible news, really liked that guy. Wondered where he had been lately. RIP good buddy.
Sorry to hear this, RIP and may his family and friends also find peace.....
So sad. Prayers for his family.
