Just awful news. I feel like we were friends and we never met. One night a couple of years ago we were supposed to have a drink at the Whitemarsh Valley Inn when I was in town. Something came up and he had to take a rain check. I have a feeling I would have liked him a LOT.

What sad shocking news! I discovered his blog-and yours-less than a year ago, and have read them from the beginning to present. He put so much of himself into Mainline Sportsman that I feel like I knew him. I liked and respected his outlook, attitude and way of life. I actually was planning to look for him at the Pennsylvania Hunt Cup on November 2d, to introduce myself. It may be presumptuous, but I feel a bit like I've lost a friend. My heart oges out to his family

So saddened to hear this. I always liked to read his blog, whether I agreed with him or not. I am sorry I never got to meet him IRL.
Condolences to the family. He will be missed in so many ways.

For the record, his life was suddenly and sadly taken by a brain aneurysm bursting. His memorial service was packed with many tributes to his love for his wife and children, his creative wit, his passions in life that defined Touch. He was only 51. He left this world like he lived it, in the moment.

Awful news. A great writer and a seemingly even greater human being. 51 is way too soon for a juggernaut of a spirit to give up his mortal coil. RIP Great Gamesman.
