I did use the donate button here. Hope John and Alain can sort this out somehow.

Just use the donation button on the top of the page. It will read "this guest book will remain online courtesty of the morrison family and his friends at watchlords" or some variation of that. I wish we could do the same for bigedsurf but i have no idea of his real name

Thanks for taking care of this John and Alain.

I'm stunned and saddened. Few have his caliber of wit.

We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.

Was away from my computer all weekend, and first thing I did was check out the site, and signed the book.

Out of respect, I left my Screen Name out of it.

Still a shock, and more so now knowing that Clarence was only a year older than I am.

Taken too soon :(

This one still hurts a whole lot.

Over the weekend, I sent his family some condolences the old fashioned way; through the mail via a condolence card and my own thoughts.

Last week was beyond stressful for me for about 10 different reasons, but I pulled through it all okay. Yet, a lot of my thoughts were about HF, his wit, his creativity; he really was one heck of an entertaining guy.

Yet, you guys and your jumping into the fray about all this is really inspiring. This really is quite a place, quite a website.

Honestly, it only gets better around here, and it's all because of the members and their class. Yeah, we're the "hater" site.

Sure we are.

John,

Does his widow know we have kept this guest book up as a memorial to him?

First and foremost, it is donations such as those made by SeoGage, Bedlam, Toby, jb182, svaglic, James Bee and others which allows us to remember our fellow members. It is also the auctions and other Charity donations made which sets this forum apart from all others.

A year ago several of our members passed away, all unexpectedly and all important to us and to their families. In remembrance of Clarence, a donation to the Arbor Foundation to plant 250 trees in the Chippewa Forest in his memory.
