Unhappy

MacNutt and I had one of the more conflicted relationships within this community, as many of you well know. The news of his passing is still a shock - I'll never have the chance to win another argument with him.

Gerry, whereever you are, you've found a few answers the rest of us are still searching for. Hope you're doing alright. And if I ever see an apparition roaring up behind me with one headlight on a lonely rural highway in Cuba, I'll imagine its you. On my next visit, I'll raise a toast of Cuban rum in your name.

Hasta la vista, Gerry.

M.

I always enjoyed reading his posts. He was intelligent and humourous and, man, could he get people riled up! I can hardly believe it...

Rest In Peace, MacNutt.

In honor of Gerry's racing photography, I scanned the cover from one of his videos. His humour is very much apparent.

Mental Racing cover.

CubaMark, I wanted to share with Gerry my experiences in Cuba. My wife and I intend to try and make this a yearly event, so I too shall toast our amigo with some Cuban rum. He would have appreciated this I feel. Pax, mi amigo.

Who knows, Marc. We may have an opportunity to do that together some day, sitting on the Malecon, watching the jalopys roll by and the waves crash on the seawall.

If there was ever any doubt, ehMac is truly a community, filled with friendship, controversy, a bit o' love, and sorrow.

I too really enjoyed reading threads he was involved in. A hardy soul and a truly awake one. I bet he could have written one hell of an autobiography. Peace to him and his.

Mark, yes, that would be an appropriate gesture on our part. Que lastima that he shall not be there with us.

Trust me on this."

A fitting self-written eulogy.
