It's been almost 10 years but I remember WySiWyG posts here. He liked RR bridges and I enjoyed his images of them. He was intelligence and a good UER member. I think of him from time to time.

WySiWyG's UER profile: http://www.uer.ca/...asp?posterid=14343

I think he earned the right to FM while living but never received it.
I've done something unusual, I've put him up for FM...
Please jump him if you wish.*

I remember these guys and often wonder where they went... it's saddening to hear of their passing like this.
so many good people on this forum, so many good people I have known.

Unless you caught that one thread by MHinc, you never know. That thread on his death got buried (no pun intended). Which is why I did this.

I was on Junix's memorial thread when I thought of WySiWyG, even though I couldn't recall his user name. I had been meaning to create this thread for some time though just needed to conjure up his name... it didn't take long.

It's a gesture of appreciation, respect, and recognition to WySiWyG.
I believe he earned it; late is better then never... what you see is what you get

Hopefully one day his kids will be reading their Dad's posts here, maybe even exploring themselves.
