    RIP Norman. Tim Winters provided this picture of "Norman". BTW was that his real name?

    Very, very sad news. He often wrote that his final day was drawing near. I wish he hadn't been right.

    Yeah, guess he knew. I was hoping it wasn't when he wrote that.

    Bummer. Nice to have met him, if only online.

    Loved his Avatar

    I have a feeling that he and I have very little in common, but I always enjoyed what he had to say. I will miss his spirit and his wit very much. May the wind always be at your back in cruise and straight down the centerline on takeoff, my friend.

    Terrible news if true. :( :( Last seen Friday at 12:40pm according to his profile, so it must have happened VERY recently.

    How do we know he has flown west?

    RIP Sargent Schultz... I mean Norman. (I always just knew him as the Sargent Schultz guy) Unlike your avatar, you did not know nothing and I feel your contributions were always welcome. Blue skies, tailwinds and enjoy the free flying! I suspect things are a lot easier for you now!

    Always enjoyed his humor. He will be missed. RIP @Norman.

    (If anyone wonders why I’m tagging him, I suspect like when my dad passed someone may or may not have access to his online “stuff” and will maybe read some of this. It was nice to see dad’s friends lamenting his passing and where I could I posted thank you’s from his accounts to his comrades while hoping them seeing a post from “him” didn’t shock them into cardiac arrest. All depends on what Norman left anyone. Dad had a sealed envelope with all of his logins to everything... well probably not everything, but everything he wanted us to know about. :) )

    I'm saddened.

    He was an asset.

    And more often than not an amusing asset.
