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.

" Full Member. It's great you feel so strongly about them, but there's nothing left to do"

Nicely done.

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.

Does anyone have a photo of Chris that I might use for the tribute page I have?
