He mentioned in that last post that he wouldn't be back, so I ownder if he's even seeing these posts. For the moderators, is there any way to track down his DW and have a print out of all these well wishes sent? Perhaps be bought from or donated to ETS over the years? There should be some delivery address if so.

OBG, like the rest here, I'm going to miss your insights - "Sea daddy" sums it up nicely. Every time I'm back home with my parents I wonder if you're the old guy driving an RV whenever I pass one. I caught myself today reading something and waiting for your thoughts on the topic. Your absence is already being noticed.

I agree that OBG touched many, and am glad you thought of this. I have OBG's email, and assume that it is shared with his wife. I have made a PDF copy of the two threads and shall forward them to said address.

EDIT: Maybe I better talk to the Moderators and Doug first. I really don't want to step on any toes with this.

I will email Doug and hit notify for Mods.

Both threads have been converted to a PDF and emailed on to OBG's email. I shall update the PDF to him and his family unless either asks me to stop.

I do the things that I must, and really regret, are unfortunately necessary.

Mhallcinci brought up a good idea on a donation or some sort of thing that we could do to either help his family or commemorate him for his contributions through the years with ETS. I wonder if Susan may have any ideas on the best way to handle this. If there is a donation to help out his family or what have you, I would be interested in contributing as well. Does anybody have any ideas of the best way to handle this?

I can see either a contribution to ETS or the American Cancer Socitey.....does anyone have any direct contact with OBG or his family? I would perfer to give to a cause they believe in just to make it more personal.

God bless you OBG. We will all miss you and have been privileged to have shared your wisdom. My prayers are with you sir.

I went and did a donation to ETS......I figured since thats how I "met" OBG it just made sense.

OBG, you dont know how I much I respected you, and how much I looked up to you, as always being the "young one" of the forum, you and a select few others were always there to offer me advice, and wisdom, and for that, I thank you!
