    Gentlemen...
    (and this time I actually mean that)

    May we all strive to live the Life of CJ.


    It would be difficult to have done better.

    Been rough still this morning reading all the great words and memories - great job Dan, Doc & Tek. Also great to see some of the “originals” that welcomed me to this great group come back to the DIS - sorry it’s for such a sad occasion. When I can get through typing a final thank you to CJ later I will but until then I’m gonna get off my a$$ to enjoy the 3 day guys weekend hanging with DS because that is what CJ would want me to do.

    Wear your red today - got on my “DaDisDad” Customer shirt my kids got me for Father’s Day

    Thank you Dan for those words.
    My own words are failing me right now.
    The best I could do was wear my DisDads shirt to work in CJ's honour and just let you all know what a great group of guys you all are.

    It was tough to write buddy. I couldn’t read it. I had to get Lady K to spell check.

    Great sentiment from you, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon we will start to focus on the good stuff.

    I'm already making plans to stop by Belle Vue Lounge for an Old Fashioned in his honor next time I'm in the area.

    Well Said All Of You!

    Old Timers, Welcome Back, May We Never Meet Like This Again, Ever!

    I reached out to the Pirate Princess, just waiting to hear back. I will ask, after reading all these great stories of Cj, if you have Andriana's contact info, tell her, I think she would like to hear them. Just tell her that and tell her we love her.

    Hey everyone... I came back on the DIS last night to find some pictures of myself with CJ. I will reread through his trip reports.

    It is a sad day. A true DISdad was lost. Someone we can all strive to be more like- a smart, caring, loving, thoughtful, and proud dad who always put his daughter before himself. It was always great to see him and Andriana during race weekends.

    I'm still at a loss.

    -Tim

    I do not have her contact info and I don't do FB, so if you are so inclined to share with her my sentiments/thoughts, feel free.

    I don’t have her details chief, I’m sure all the guys would be happy for you to use whatever you think will help her. I’m sure the gaffer would really appreciate the way you are looking out for her.

    I think I may have overwhelmed her a bit. For us, it happen yesterday, for her it happen ten days ago, but the wound is still deep and raw for her. I am going to give her time to respond.

    You’re a good man chief.
    2 weeks, 6 months. Whatever she needs. One day she will want to hear all of it.

    Agree with you both and Randall, I think you have all our wishes to share all of our thoughts and memories of CJ with the Pirate Princess whenever she is ready. Thank you CBO for as usual running point for us.

    Yes, give her time. I was going to reach out but I'm not sure how many other people did and I don't want to overwhelm her.

    Thanks for doing this though Randall

    We are staying at BWV next month and have Belle Vue Lounge, Leaping Horse LiBations there on our list to raise a glass as well as Tambu Lounge. I know these were all some of his favorites.

    Absolutely understood. I never got to meet her either and I'm sure for her, while our intentions may be good, it's still to soon to think about all the other lives he impacted. In the big scheme of things, it probably doesn't matter, but I'm curious what happened. I know he said he wasn't feeling well a few weeks ago, but I was thinking some cold or flu or virus or something and that he was better. Still shocked at the news. Knowing how much PP meant to him, I can imagine how much this devastated her.

    Hopefully sooner than later, but everyone has their own time frame and only she can decide if and when.

    Yeah, Randall. Thanks. I know you knew them both and I realize this has got to be tough on you also and yet you're still trying to help all of us. CJ would be appreciative and proud of your efforts.

    The only contact I have for her is Facebook and Cj phone. You can go ahead and let her know you care. I thinks she is acting like a deer in headlights now easily scared off. Don't push her for any information, just tell how great Cj was and how you love them both and leave it at that. If you have a Cj story you would like share that would be cool too.

    This is what scared her off. I asked "if I may know what happen", and haven't heard from her since. Right now, it's about her, her Daddy died. We don't need to know the details, we just need to help her.

    Sorry, didn't mean to indicate I wanted you to ask her. I was simply saying I was curious, but then again, it's really a moot point what happened, but rather it did. I guess it was more so my natural reaction of "WHAT HAPPENED? I thought he was okay" coming out unintentionally. Again, sorry if I gave any indication I was trying to find out info...not my intent.

    I just sent her a message. If she responds, I was going to give her my logon details for here so she could read the posts about her dad if and when she feels like it. Would anyone have an issue with that?
