R.I.P., My Dad, the REAL "Ace".
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:59:43 PM »
My Dad passed away on Feb 26, 2014.

He and I called each other "Ace" for much of our lives, and that's why I picked the name Ace for the business, as a tribute to him.

I will miss him greatly.

Sympathies are with you and yours. Been there recently myself.

Tom-

I waited awhile before posting, because I didn't want to be distracting.

You have my condolences.  I sort of know what you've gone through, as my father just died in January, after an almost year-long struggle with a brain tumor.  It was a very difficult time for him, and all of my family, but I want to say how grateful I am that this community is here; it was a great relief to have this little outlet of "normalcy" to distract me when I needed it.

I know this isn't about a lost member, but it seems like a good place to mention it and to express my gratitude to all of you, my "imaginary" friends...

Just seeing this section now.  Very sorry to hear, Ace.  My pop is the original Boggy as well.  What a great way to honor your father, by naming your business after him.  I'm sure you made him proud.

Sorry for your loss as well, Matt.  Tough, tough stuff.

Hang in there fellas.
