R.I.P. Jim D.

It's with a very heavy heart that I must inform everyone that forum member Jim Dorsey has passed away 4/18/13. This came as much of a shock to his family as it did to me. Just one month shy of his 74th birthday.

He was one of the most generous and care-free people I have ever met. A real American craftman & true Patriot to his core. We couldn't have asked for a better man on this forum. He will be missed terribly.

My heart goes out to his wife & family, most of whom I've never met.



God Bless you, ol' friend. May you rest in peace.
