    Its been 2 years since we lost Mallory and it's hard to believe.

    He was a sweet and patient presence on a board that is often rowdy and crazy. His real life was extremely difficult but also full of miracles and against-all-odds recoveries. Even so, it was a sad day for all of us when he finally lost his battle with cancer.

    Please take a moment to remember Mallory. :sorrow:

    We seem to have lost a lot of members for such a small community. First Techman, then Caedus, then Mallory, and finally Dkheler.

    I think this is an older group, and we'll probably continue to lose more at a faster rate than other message boards.

    I'm not really great at this sort of thing, and tend to avoid such memorial type occasions - but it is quite true that he was an incredibly classy poster (and, one assumes, human being)

    I knew him (on-line, that is--it never worked out for us to meet, even though we hoped to). A really good guy. He gave me sound advice and I ignored it and saw why he had given it to me. It shows how much he understood about people.

    You are missed, Mallory. :salute:

    :yes:

    This is unfortunately, true.

    We also have several members with medical difficulties, as well.

    Don't forget Techman too.

    I didn't know Mallory, but it's sad to loose people on the board and in life. In the past two weeks I've lost three people I've known since high school to cancer or accidents, two of them on the same day.

    He was one of those posters who you really got to know in Chat. He was a frequent visitor and participater there.

    I miss having a chat room to visit. :(

    I remember him but I never had many talks with him. Still know he was a good one from his posts.

    I considered Mallory to be a friend. I do miss him. We talked about so much over the years. In his last few years he spoke to me a lot about his son and the troubles his son was having and how he eventually started to turn his life around. When his son was looking at the military Mallory was constantly peppering me and asking for advice which I was only too happy to provide. I hope his son knows how proud of him his father was. The man was jovial, up beat, and concerned about so many. He and I used to pull our hair out over one particular poster not because he was a troll or spam bot but because that individual has so much potential and was pissing it away. At the same time he also caused his fair share of pain. But despite it all I am hard pressed to think of anyone who stayed mad at him. He was a friend. I miss him.

    I co-modded with him, and he was just great. I think we had the best forum on the BBS and it was a privilege to co-mod with him. He was always even-tempered and good-natured, easy-going and a low drama type - exactly the opposite of me! LOL.

    Miss you, Mallory.
