Thank you Jim, Jesse and Matt for your posts; Jim, for helping to fill in the blanks of a beloved member here on the Forum; Jesse for the Bard's meaningful quote; and Matt for linking that memorable post from Banjo. I, too will miss his wonderful posts, the photos and wry sense of humor. I will try to "keep it smokey" in his honor.
Events like these make you realize how precious life is and how fleeting it can be. Whilst I never met or spoke to the gentleman I always enjoyed his posts and tastes in pipes and hats. A very sad loss to all of us far and wide. RIP Sante.
