The first TTOLer I met in real life. Sat in his chair at Soggy Dollar enjoying life. Really nice man, sadly gone.

I remember a thread in which people explained how they picked their TTOL screen names. Jim said, "I'm big".

cool dude, never got to meet him in person but his chair at the SD reminds me of him every time....his profile pic was a sketch I remember and people would ask how they would find him in the BVI and he said "I look just like my profile".

on another note something I recently noticed about another TTOL member who has passed, Bill Hartzman....
his Facebook is gone. I only noticed because a FB memory came up recently and his comments were completely gone but people in the conversation were addressing him...weird and too bad.

I didn't realize that a FB page would just go away. Too bad as I would visit it every now and then as I really liked Bill and Di.

I don't think they do. I believe someone has to physically delete the account. One of my friends grandmother passed away last year and the husband (not her grandfather) deleted the whole account for reasons unknown. She was devastated that all of her comments and pics were gone. But of course people have their reasons and if a close relative felt the need to so then I guess we will never know.

Yes, I have a couple of Facebook friends that have passed away, but their accounts are still active... for example saildoggie's account is still there.

I donít have my own Facebook page but use Geneís daily. I had one friend who couldnít understand how he was answering things correctly. Turned awfully red when I told her it was me. We have never laughed so hard. Gene had so many closed groups that I enjoy and they would probably never let me in. Thatís why I keep it and not bother with one for me.
