    Its been over a year (1 Jun 2013) and still missin' the "old man" so very much.

    Jack, knowing how much you loved it here on the ecf forums and in case my prayers have passed you by without notice, hope that you are having a dandy ole time. I often think about you all dressed up in "manly salmon" with that koa woodville in hand vaping your apple pie/cinnamon danish juice of yours dancing with the angels. The Lord must've needed you something awful fierce (I don't blame Him) to have taken you away from us so suddenly and please ask God to provide us with the love and compassion that you embodied so well. Prayers for your daughter and grandson who must miss you dearly with each and every passing day too. Give hugs to all we hold dear you happen to chance upon. Aloha Jack, keep well.
    Be kind to those with disabilities and the elderly, feed the hungry and clothe the naked....can there be a better man? Love all, compassionately, without exception....how lucky you are. Aloha, Nutz

    Last year, long before I had held a REO, I was selling off some atomizers in the classies. I sold a Cobra to a fellow ECF member who was very friendly. We had several conversations through PM and talked about our families among other things. Of all the people I've "met" online, he was one I really wanted to just buy a plane ticket and fly to meet. He seemed like the kind of person I could just sit out on the front porch and talk to for hours.

    Life got busy and I thought several times about contacting him but never did. This was truly my loss.

    When I first ventured into the Ville and saw the RIP sticky I was saddened. First for the loss of a truly great person and second for not ever having the opportunity to spend a summer evening vaping and talking on the front porch.

    I've never posted in this thread but this seemed like the time. Jack, in a brief period of time, made a lasting impression on me which I will not forget. He will always be Tom Selleck to me.

    Has it been a year already? I too got to him thru selling and buying. I think I sold him something or I bought something from him, not sure, but we PM'd back and forth. I found out he loved life, the ladies and especially dancing. He was that kind of character that one might find in a small town bar or restaurant. The kind of character that would have made you smile instantly. He was a sweet talking man. He wrote with character and with the kind of rapport that had I met him somewhere in my life I probably would have been "sweet on him"

    He reminded me of my boyfriend , the kind of man that just wins you over with charm and "rough gentleman" I remember his avatar and it makes me smile and a bit sad.....
