You're still missed.

His avatar and posts are long gone, but he was a big part of this forum for me. How he loved his state and his country.

My signature is taken from the first two lines of an on-line memorial for him... and here's the poem I wrote in his memory, how many years ago, now?...five?, six?

To Gowge

A fisherman...
A patriot...who loved the USA.
A forum friend...
A loss...we sadly mourn today.

A witty fella...who made me smile
with his 'love' for all things 'Fwance'.
I sorely regret...that to shake his hand...
I never had the chance!

I find my peace out on the sand...Beside the sea, not beyond or behind. R.A. Britt
