Wow. This is some harsh news. I don't really post all that much but I lurk a lot and while I didn't agree with his views a lot of the time I respected the man.

RIP Macnutt.. Seems like you lived your life to the fullest. Sad that you went so early on.

Yes, this is very sad news.

From what I recall he lived his life to the fullest and, hopefully, we will be able to learn from that example and not waste this precious gift of life that we have received from our parents.

I have to admit... I was shocked to hear the news. I didn't know MacNutt very well... never exchanged many PMs but he did have a penchant for stirring the pot.

The forum is going to be a little quieter with him gone... trust me on this.

RIP

While I am learning to keep my mouth shut & my ears open over time, it is seldom that I am literally speechless.

Today is such a day.

As I compose this, teary-eyed and all, I peruse the email and PM's which Gerry & I exchanged and smile. Treasures that I'm glad that I never deleted...

Over the years I have met a select few people who, upon introduction, just strike you as a kindred spirit, an old friend whom you have not known long. Gerry was such a man.

The kicker is, we never met in person. Our relationship, as it was, was entirely online. What really hurts is that I've got a trip booked to Vancouver Island this summer to attend a seminar and I had put aside time to meet the "SSI Sage" over a beer.

Now, it will be to pay respects.

It has been many years since I had a purely liquid breakfast. Today, I indulge. And, due to a debilitating physical affliction (let's just call it a gag response, directly related to a bottle of Johnny Red many years ago...), it's not Lagavulin.

Gerry, I want you to know that I hate goodbyes of any kind. However, I just went outside, looked to the west, downed a shot and threw one over my shoulder for you.

Don, Marc, anyone else who is feeling blue today, assuage yourselves in the knowledge that few people go down doing what they love. It is only fitting that Gerry is so privileged.

Skynyrd is playing online right now, "Call Me The Breeze". Somehow, it seems appropriate...

Gerald William Wallace MacNutt, we salute you!

Requiescat in pace, old friend.

Such a sad day for the ehMac family. My sympathy goes to Gerry's family and friends on Salt Spring Island.

Every time I was in SS we talked on the phone, but just never seemed to be at the same place at the same time. The last time I was there I waited at his house, but had to leave to catch my ferry home. We agreed we would meet for sure on my next visit.

Gerry was a good-hearted soul and ehMac has lost a member of our family. We will remember him!

Once I am done what I must today, I will toss the video of his races into the VHS in the motor home where I just happen to have a bottle of Lagavulin.

It won't be there tomorrow.

"Don, Marc, anyone else who is feeling blue today, assuage yourselves in the knowledge that few people go down doing what they love. It is only fitting that Gerry is so privileged." Very true, FeXl.

Sinc's "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes was a fitting sendoff.

One of a kind was our man from SSI. Thanks for making me think with your views on the state of things.

Slainte mhor Gerry. (Here's to you even more/ Scots Gaelic) May you long be in heaven before the devil knows you are there.
