Not only to he have a kick-ass career and life....he had a kickass "handle". Fitting.

RIP Trip Wire.
If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium ...

Rest in well earned peace, Thomas. Fair winds and following seas speed you on your way.
I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

I thought about him last night at the Bourbon Ball when I was talking to the Rep from Woodford Reserve.

Drank a glass for you last night Sir.

He had a world class sig line, one I've used myself on occasion as well as one of my all time favorite quotes.

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.- T.E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"

RIP Sir. You've earned it and then some.

spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic
and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of spoiled brats." -P.J.

Gone,but not forgotten.........

God Bless,Rest in Peace Warrior.....

He was just a simple soldier and his ranks are growing thin
But his presence should remind us; we may need his like again,
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.......

Perhaps just a simple headline in the paper that might say:

The passing of our soldiers often go unnoticed and unsung by most of the world, remembered only by family and friends. Wish it were not so. May he RIP, his family will be in my thoughts and prayers.........

I realize it's a Canadian song,however I believe most appropriate for this occasion..
