    I realize pbfoot is no longer with us, but he was a great contributor to this forum and a good online friend. His birthday was Saturday and I just thought it would be nice to remember him. I know I miss him here.

    Happy Birthday Neil.:salute:

    Indeed, a commemoration for him is a good idea. He is certainly missed.

    :salute: Neil

    Great thread Aaron.
    Personally my last contact with him was an angry difference of opinion sadly, his sudden passing showing how petty and pointless such things are (and why I now avoid the topic threads).
    He was indeed a great contributor as you say and a great friend to many here - Happy birthday Neil.

    I thought I was the only one Aaron. Good thread. I went over the announcement from last year and trolled through his threads.

    He is missed.

    I still run across some of the great references and links Neil sent me. A reminder of how much he is missed.

    He is certainly missed. I just came across some photos of the 'Emil' he sent me, and was thinking of him.

    Photos and videos of Niagara Falls still remind me of him.

    I had a few conversations with him as well. It is always sad to loose a friend, Requiescit in pace
