If you don’t mind I’m going to raise Os’s passing to the top of the list as a short remembrance. He was a good man, a great LumberJock and is sorely missed.

Yes, I miss him dearly. I’ve been asked a number of times by new people about the MO on some of our avatars and had to explain to them about Mark’s passing and that if they wanted to read about it they could go to Jocks and click on Memorium and that would take them to Marks site. He was a wonderful, young man, with a bad heart. He told me he was having horrible chest pains and headaches but the shop doctor told him just to take his meds and he would be ok, they let him take some time off, and work part time even, I talked him into getting a second opinion, which he did, and just before he went for surgery he died. He left behind a wonderful wife and son. Karson made a beautiful frame for a beautiful stain glass panel that Dusty had made and Martin had raffled off, to help keep the site running in Mark’s memory. Which was the families wishes. God Rest and Bless His Soul. May his soul, and all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy God, rest in peace. Amen

RIP Mark. He is missed by more than his immediate family.

His participation in this forum does keep his memory alive.

I often see his comments when reading some of the past posts, and admit it causes me pause and reflect on him.

He was one of the welcoming committee when I joined LJ’s
