I am sure he would have said

All yinz HAGD

We have been sadly missing Bill Forrester on Facebook and  in the good morning thread this evening but I know several of you don't read either one. Sadly we lost our friend in a car accident today at age 66.

I will miss him and I am sure many of you will as well.

Wow. That's the second death I've heard of today. A coworker died of cancer yesterday. No one knew she had it. I last saw her about 10 days ago.

RIP Eileen and oldnolder.

Yeah, so many of his posts were about the things he did for and with his wife and his Mother-in-law. I'm afraid it will be a big hole in their lives now. He brought so much positive energy even on-line that I'm sure it will be irreplaceable in real life.
