    Yes, it was great to meet several of you that I already feel like I know due to our time and conversations on an internet forum.

    The internet may come with it's pitfalls, but overall, when used right, it is a good thing.

    It would be good to meet some of you I met today more often in real life.

    CM sure had a full life. Makes mine seem relatively boring, lol. But we carry on.

    Oh, and who made the baked beans? I'd love to have the recipe!

    Today was a wonderful sendoff; the food, the family, the friends, the bag pipes!

    I was ok for the first few seconds through the door, but saw one of the terrorists in tears and into the arms of Mrs. Mouse and I was overcome by an unexpected bout of allergies.

    The faces of those who were in attendance spoke volumes to the life he lived...the guys who were from the neighborhood, the guys who worked with him on the various cars and motorcycles that passed through his hands, the family who did wonderfully hosting and welcoming and visiting with so many people who were hurting with them (I'm sure they were exhausted but they were so wonderful to all of us)...and then there was his INGO family. You guys know how to make something happen so seamlessly that no one would even know if something went sideways. The guys that ran the grill and managed the nearly constant flow of fresh, hot off the grill burgers, you guys are amazing! Everyone who made sure there were plenty of utensils, sides, condiments, drinks, sweets, etc... - thank you!! For those that just hung out and were there to remember the man and pay their respects to his family, this day meant a lot.

    Honestly still processing the day...but wanted to say thank you to everyone who pulled it together and worked their tails off.

    It was such a solemn but uplifting day.

    It was great meeting everyone and listening to everyone’s stories. We raised a glass of crown royal with KellyinAvon and others in Tim‘s honor.

    I am humbled to be a part of such a fine community as Ingo. I look forward to meeting many of you again and shooting with you all.

    I really hoped I’d be carrying my 1911 today but I’m still waiting for a holster:(

    Tim and I used to proudly say that "we were made of the old stuff". Being just 18 months apart in age, and both having grown up in Indianapolis, often going through youthful experiences that were identical .... we framed the world much the same.

    It was painful for me to see the suffering of Tim's family. But I also know that those wounds will start to diminish with time. They will continue to see Tim in the many folds of their lives.

    Thanks for so many of you who worked hard, and long to put today's tribute event together. I enjoyed talking, and reminiscing with all of you .... those that I knew, and those who I'd just met.
