I don’t know if it has been mentioned because I don’t visit here as often as I used to, but in today’s local newspaper I saw an obituary for fellow lumberjock “cajunpen”, aka Bill. He was one of the early members, and contributed a lot over the years. He also lived quite near me, and now I’m sorry we never got together as we often talked about.

Bill was a friend that I messaged many times. He was a great internet friend and will be missed.
