    My dear friend Arthur, who was a member here "BucksSigns" passed away this morning.
    He was such a wonderful man, and he will be missed.
    He was sneaky about his username, and thought it rather funny. He posted some neat design suggestions, and I doubt that many knew just what a special guiding hand they were being given.
    I will miss him dearly. We shared a special bond.

    I'm a bit stunned. It was only a couple of months ago we spoke. What a talented guy and a big loss to the sign world. RIP

    Sorry to hear that, Jill. I can't say I knew him but I'm sure he will be missed.

    Sorry for your loss Jillbeans, Once in a great while we meet speacial people that shares thier knowlege with us and touches us in a special way. When that person leaves us it leaves a hole that can't be filled but that person, in the time you had with them, make you a better person and they are forever a part of who you are today.

    Thank you. That was a really nice thing to say, Dakota.
    I'm just glad I got to meet him in person twice, and spend a wonderful day with him a few years ago. I have all his delightful emails, his Cecil Wade books, and a really cool panel he painted for me.

    Sorry to hear that. Like some others, I never had the privilege to know him. That is too bad. Sounds like he was a great person. RIP
