SQ said what I was about to say -- "This is shocking. Truly shocking." My last direct communication with Gerry was via a PM re the "The World According to MacNutt" postings. I wanted to make sure that he was OK with these satirical looks at life all around us. He said he loved them, in that it made him look smarter and more educated. I told him that we made a good team together and he agreed.

While we did not agree on many issues, I felt that at least he was consistent. I never felt that his postings posed a threat to national security or were vile comments aimed at hurting other people. He was opinionated and stubborn, but willing to laugh at himself, and for these qualities he shall be dearly missed by most, if not all of us. RIP mon ami. Paix.

Mr. Mayor, out of respect, you should "retire" MacNutt's avatar
http://www.ehmac.ca/attachment.php?a...5&d=1149138823

Not sure if you are able to do this, but I would find it difficult to see that avatar with anyone but Gerry M.

bryanc, sorry, I overlooked your posting requesting this same action. Paix.

I am truly shocked and saddened by the news of Gerry's passing.

I believe that he was truly a good person and someone with whom I would have liked to shake hands with someday.

While his posts and views were not shared by most, he spoke from the heart and was respected for that. He was one of ehMac's pioneers and most prolific posters. An asset to this community. His presence here will be greatly missed and I for one am extremely saddened to see him go. But He died doing one thing that he loved to do.

Farewell Gerry. I hope to shake your hand in the next world.

MaxPower, he has the name that you want to touch, but you musn't touch!
His name sounds good in your ear, but when you hear it, you musn't fear.
Cause his name can be said, in many different ways...

I'm shocked to hear this sad news. Gerry certainly liked to push buttons and some of his posts were over the top, but I think that was intentional. Gerry once sent me a case of his Carly Spring water and inside he included one of his drag racing videos as an extra. He went doing what he loved best. RIP, Gerry!

A truly decent guy, I'll miss him.

Posterboy, thanks for letting us know.

"His presence here will be greatly missed and I for one am extremely saddened to see him go. But He died doing one thing that he loved to do." MP, you just said what I have been thinking about since I first heard the news of his passing.

For as it was written in the last volume of "The World According to MacNutt" -- "In Life, we must always expect the unexpected. This is what keeps each person's life interesting, and filled with tears and laughter. In the final analysis, we should all take Life easy ............ but we should take it and make it more meaningful."

I had hoped to meet Gerry someday/somewhere and have our picture taken together. East meets West, so to speak. Such is Life. Paix, mon ami. RIP.

Oh wow...

Like everyone else, I am utterly shocked and deeply saddened by this tragic news. Gerry clearly had an heart of gold beating in that proud Scotsman's chest of his, and I shall miss his presence here... rest in peace, Gerry...
