“He was probably one of the kindest, gentlest… a very unassuming man,” a church representative told FOX 13, confirming the death. “He was a tremendous leader. He will be greatly missed by many.”

I have removed some of the posts in one of the threads this evening. One or two thoughtful, long, posts were removed in the process due to the way the forums operate, and I am sorry to have lost them.
These message stay here as long as we keep the site up. It would be most appreciated if a post begins to degrade into personal insults, if you would take that to the private messages feature.
