    I am saddened to share the news of the passing of one of our well known forum members, unkadug. It was sudden (heart attack) and totally unexpected.

    He was a very popular long-time poster and will be greatly missed.

    It won't be the same without him. He's irreplaceable. :(

    I hope people won't mind that I this posted here - chit chat seems so frivolous under the circumstances, but this was also one of Doug's favorite sub-forums, where many knew him.

    RIP my cyber-friend. You were one of my first contacts here some 11 or so years ago, and I will really really miss you. :(:(:(

    It's so strange to lose someone you've never met but yet consider a dear, close friend. The forums certainly won't be the same. I'll miss you @unkadug.

    :(

    Just saw this in the imagineer sub-forum too:(...he would always add a bit of fun to the discussions and enjoyed watching and participating in the projects we would create for our self-run imagineering competitions.

    For this imagineering challenge, due Sunday night, we are dedicating the projects to unkadug - may he rest in peace.

    RIP Doug. I will miss you.

    Thanks for inviting me to the cool kids' table and not giving me the wobbly chair. :cry:

    I am shocked. I'll be lighting a candle for him tonight and thinking of those he left behind. Peace.

    I bawled like a baby today at the news. Thanks for being there Doug for everything. Without you I wouldn't be in the forum today. Ride into the sunset pardner.
