    He will surely be missed.

    Perhaps you could post his obituary so that we might know him even better?

    Thanks,

    Kip

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
    Author believed to be
    David Romano


    When tomorrow starts without me,
    And I'm not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    all filled with tears for me,


    I wish so much you wouldn't cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn't get to say.


    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    and each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too.


    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,
    and said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.


    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye
    For all my life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die.


    I had so much to live for,
    So much left yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.


    I thought of all the yesterdays
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    and all the fun we had


    If I could re-live yesterday
    Just even for a while,
    I'd say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.


    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories,
    would take the place of me.


    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.


    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne.


    He said, "This is eternity,
    And all I've promised you."
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew


    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day's the same way
    There's no longing for the past.


    You have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times
    You did some things
    You knew you shouldn't do.


    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you're free.
    So won't you come and take my hand
    And share my life with me?


    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don't think we're far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart.

    Scott,

    Croc was the first member to really make me feel welcome at SG when I joined over 3 years ago.

    Since some of the ladies broke out the poems... I was thinking of that animated gif Croc had back in my early days. I used to see it all the time in the security forum

    I still kinda identify Croc with that gif.

    I found a copy easily at a freeware site.



    I just wanted to add that to what I said earlier.

    Croc will be missed but yet always in our hearts.

    Again, my condolences.

    Jeff

    Croc was a warm and wonderful guy. His humor and perspectives will be missed.

    My sympathies to you Scott, and the rest of the friends and family.

    Scott,

    You should know that your father will be missed by many people all over the world for the laughter he brought with him and his sharp wit and kind heart. Simply put, that he will be missed so much by so many... that's the true testament to the kind of man he was. You, your mum and all your family will be in my thoughts and prayers and in the thoughts and prayers of many other people.

    You are not the least bit alone.

    Most Respectfully,
    Thomas R Blakely

    I hadn't even noticed this thread stickied at the top at first, until I saw Tynker's post in the other forum. This news was most unexpected.

    sonofacroc, thank you for letting us know this. John may have been thousands of miles away from most of us, but we'd certainly consider him one of our friends, and we appreciate the fact that you took the time to tell us of his passing.

    I wish the best for you and your family.
