Dear God, that is terrible news! I know I'm largely an outsider-looking-in on this board, but I must admit that I read this board frequently throughout my day as it's one of my favorites. Semper Fi was a humorist and one of the most to-the-point posters I've ever come across, and someone that I never ignored. Perhaps there's a way to send flowers for the funeral? I'd be honored to donate on his behalf.
