We will miss him so much. :-(

Sad news Connie. His passing is worth its own thread IMO. Thank you for updating everyone.

Thank you for the link to the guestbook, and even though the news is sad news, thank your for sharing it with us.

Backhoe was a true gentleman. What few times our paths crossed, he always had a kind or friendly or funny word. Now he is whole and reunited with his sweetheart!

Thank you for letting us know.

I'm sorry to read that he's gone, but comforted that he's finally with his Miss Emily again.

Rest well gentleman

Backhoe had about as tough a life as can be imagined.

How he kept his head up to contribute as much as he did here amazes me.
