Wow..I am floored…..I just recently became friends with Chip here on Lumberjocks and was really enjoying talking with him. He was a great guy and will be missed.

Though I didn’t know Chip, I am saddened to learn of his passing. I looked at his bio here on L/J and he had this posted:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. (Mark Twain) Just about says it all I think.”

I added this to perhaps provide a little smile to those who were friends with Chip. It made me smile knowing that Chip has indeed “caught the trade winds.”

I noticed the comment on the Awards announcement and thought – can’t be our “Chip” –
but, but, but…........

I am grateful that the news has been shared here.
My heart is breaking. Chip has been a wonderful friend.
