I have had a few really bad shocks here at BITOG. One was when Bob, the guy who started the website, stopped posting. Or at least I have not seen a post by him in a very long time. I had enjoyed every one of his posts. He was very interesting.

Gary Allan also was one of the first members here and all of his posts were interesting also.

Slowly the original members here are starting to fade away. I was member 1095. Today there are a huge number of members of this website. There are tens of thousands of members and who knows how many people visit this website. This website has been very sucessful. That is good. But I hope the essential character of this website never changes.

As long as we have members here like the original guy, Bob, and guys like Gary Allan, we should be in good shape.

Well darned, it's sad to hear about Gary.

I regret that I haven't talked to him in a few months. I am his AMSOIL sponsor and am the one to give the reins over to him several years ago. I saw the passion and enthusiasm he had being a member of Bitog.

I left a voicemail to the phone number that I have for him. I hope I get a call call.

Please keep Gary's family in your thoughts and prayers.

Gary will be missed. He was a very good poster. May Gary RIP.

I will be sending his wife and children a card and a plant from his BITOG family. It will sent it on Monday when the florist opens.

We need to get something together for his family.

This makes me sick. Gary and I had several meaningful conversations on some really heavy topics over the years in PMs and across several forums. And we joked around a lot, too. He was one of the voices that I listened to on topics even if we disagreed. I had a lot of respect for that guy. He will be remembered.

Thank you Helen, very thoughtful of you.

The silver lining is for Gary himself, his childhood pain has now been redeemed. He's now set free of all that. God bless you Gary.

This is a shock to hear of his passing.

Indeed. The more this sinks in the worse I feel. It's as if I've lost a friend that I never met.

That's the last thing he posted on here. Classic.
