I am shocked and saddened to have just learned of Gunslinger's passing. He was always very helpful and made a point of letting me know his cyber door was always open for any reason big or small.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Kelly, Eileen, Michael, friends and other family members. He will be sorely missed.

Gunslinger's passing is a sad occasion. My condolences go out to his family. He was able to help me when I first started FunTrivia in Quizzyland about 3 1/2 years ago. He will live on at FunTrivia because of all the contributions he made to the site.

His words at the top of the page in the controversial issues threads often moderated[and still do] my posts and perhaps my debating in the "real world".I didn`t communicate with the gentleman but shall remember and try to adhere to his wise words whenever I discuss something with anyone.

Hello all,

I am Gunslingers fiancee. I would like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for Larry. He thought of all of you as family. He used to say, "I've got to check and see what's going on on FT." I realize that some of you may not think that sounded like he thought of you as family but for him to check on FT as often as he did - he was checking on his "children".

This past month has been an interesting one. I got laid off from one job, the next Monday started another one which two weeks later got laid off from; then a week later started the job I work at presently. Through all of this, I know Larry was watching me because I couldn't have survived this without having an angel with me.

An angel was what Larry was and now is. I, like you, know he could be hard and unbending when something was not going the way it "should". Through it all, the one thing you could always count on was his support!

I would like to thank EVERYONE for their support and help and good thoughts and beautiful memories of the man I love.

I miss him terribly, too Linda!

Eileen

Hello Eileen. Larry's death has hit us all but obviously none as hard as you and his family. You can see what we thought of him, a really wonderful man. He will, as you say, be watching over you, have strength Eileen and take care.

I would like to thank Dakota North and Junior the Jaws (I don't know their "real" names) for making such an effort to come to his service. I know he, like Kelly and I were, would have been sincerely touched by the effort.

I feel like you are all part of my family and I have a rather large family to begin with.

Linda and George thank you for your help in getting in to read all of the posts. I would like to come back and just be with his "family" every once in a while.

Eileen

Eileen, I'm very happy to "see" you in the forums. I feel very bad that I didn't meet Gun when I had the chance. Around this time last year, Gun asked me to meet him and I had to respectfully decline as I was having car problems (car went and I haven't gotten a new one). I only wish I would have met him then, as I'll never have the chance to now.

Just wanted to take a second and point out the link at the top of the main page for the forums. Terry put up a memorial for my dad, and I sent him some pictures.

Eileen, you finally were able to get in. I'm so glad! And, I'm glad that this thread was one of your first stops. I was hoping you'd have a chance to check in here and am pleased that the work George and I did worked on your account.

I do hope you join us frequently. I know everyone would love the chance to get to know Gun's fiancee. And, please share any stories with us that you might have about him.

Eileen, thank you for dropping in and sharing some stories about GS .. and thank you to Silver Moonsong for supplying the pics. The PD photo is especially apt, as that is how I visualised him - he kept all of us in line including, once or twice, the webmaster himself. He had an undeniable presence. We often joked about who'd win Powerball and pay the other a visit, but it wasn't meant to be.

I've taken the liberty of copying Terry's link, at the top of the Main Page, and placing it with the list of mods at the foot of the page, and the list of editors in the Quizzyland Forum.

I know I haven't posted in here for quite a while and would normally introduce myself before posting, but I am quite shocked and saddened to hear this news about Gunslinger.

Like many people here, I never got a chance to meet Gunslinger, but corresponded through FT when I was experiencing difficulties with my posts.

He showed me the patience of a Saint, bless him and I have never forgotten that kindness. Clearly he is a gentle-man in the true sense of the word. I feel honoured to have met him.

My well wishes go out to his loved ones, who will surely miss his presence here on the earth plain.

Oh wow. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Gunslinger. Although I didn't get to know him well, I'm shocked to hear about it. Blessings to his family as well as his FT family.

I'm in shock! I don't know what brought me to FT today, I just thought I'd see if any of the old gang was still around.

Larry's passing is a great loss. FT was my first "home" on the internet and Gunslinger was one of the best.

Thanks for your influence in my life, Larry, You will be missed by many. Especially those that never met you to benefit from your wisdom.

I'm sorry for your family's loss.

Sue

It is one year ago that Gunslinger passed away.

I know these words are pithy but it seems like only yesterday he was keeping us all in line, sharing our good humour, and supporting us in times of need.

Funtrivia will never forget you.

I joined after he had passed away, but it is obvious he was a very nice man, important to Funtrivia itself and it's members.

With your permission, I will pray for you and your father, my friend.

If he was half the person I know you to be, the world is a sadder place without him.
