A Reminder. Red Shirt Day is Friday
« on: November 23, 2011, 03:49:28 pm »
Friday will be the anniversary of our friend Tom's Birth. It will be the first of the bi-annual Red-Shirt Days we will have as a tribute to Mr. Tom.  If you have a red shirt, wear it Friday to honor our friend, and if you have a notion, take a photo and post it here.  Tom would get a kick out of it.

I want to take a moment to direct your attention to the Link up in the right hand corner of the forum titled "In Memoriam.  There was no way I was going to rest in this upgrade until I had my friend back on the forum.c I miss him more than anyone can know, and especially this week. He was my right hand man and always inspired, supported and mentored me in everything I did. 

I'll be adding other Members that past on in due time, but I needed to get Tom up there so I can rest. I love you Tom.

I'll be wearing my red T-Shirt on the 25th.  Losing my brother is one of the saddest parts of my life.  Death is so final and silent.

Tom reached a lot of folks on this forum. I think it was Tom that let me in the door here. If it wasn't, he was a close second because I remember right off the bat messaging and posting a lot between us. He gave me what I will relate as "a little forum guidance". ;) Jeff, you did to of course, in your own way.  ;D

"In Memoriam"  is very nicely done Jeff.  Many people loved Mr.Tom.

Jeff-
   You got any red Forestry Forum tee shirts for sale? I'll take one if you do! PM me if you do and we'll make shipping and payment arrangements.

   Thanks,

It will be like the time I came to the Piggy Roast and everyone had on a red t shirt.  Tom was the only one I recognized because everyone else thought they were the "ARKANSAWYER".
  I will be wearing red and thinking of Tom.  I am getting to looking like him more and more every day.

     The only red tshirt I have is in Florida, and I'm not right now.  I will, however, be fishing; one of Tom's favorite pastimes.  I'll be thinking about him a lot tomorrow.

Today, on Thanksgiving Day, I'm thankful for this place that allowed me to get to know Tom a little bit.  I will definitely be wearing my red shirt tomorrow.

I dug out a red shirt and wore it, and thought of Tom lots...
I was also horrified to see that a Birthday Card I'd organised a couple of months ago was automatically sent to him on FaceBook, I'd forgotten to stop it sending. Still, I think Tom would have gotten a kick out of my oops...   smiley_roller

Jeff, I saw the In Memoriam section as soon as I logged on and I think it's just beautiful. Exceptionally nicely done. Kudos to your programming skills. Also, the new forum look is sweeeeeeeeeeet.  8)

I was/am friends with Tom on Facebook, and received a reminder when I opened up my page that today was Tom's birthday.  I don't handle this very well.
