Thank you Jess.

You know, and please everyone don't take this the wrong way, but I was so surprised to read he was 60! His whole attitude and everything I honestly thought he was in his 30's somehow. He was so vibrant and *alive* in his posts!! I guess the old saying is true about being young at heart.

You will be sadly missed flip.

I will miss Flip and his funny posts. He had such a wry sense of humor about things. He had a secret formula to hlep him feel better. Something about Vodka being in it.  Here is to friend we no longer will see on our boards.

WOW!!   His name, "Flip Wilson" explains it all now!!!  That is why he could be such a comedian!!!!   For you that remember the comedian, Flip Wilson!!!!    :rofl;  That just made me smile, did anyone else notice that?    I did not know he was married either.   Who is Donna that said she was with him when he died?   Does anyone know?    I hope none of you think I am being disrespectful by laughing about his name...........I just think it is neat that he was a comedian himself!

What a shame he didn't stop in that emergency room and get checked.  However I believe when it is your time to go, nothing can stop it.  I never met or spoke to him, but he seemed to be well informed on most subjects and glad to share his knowledge with others.  Poor Cujo
will miss him most of all.

Godspeed Flip,

I had already planned to have a small glass of vodka in flip's honour tonight, which is Wednesday for me. It's also my birthday so mixed emotions.

I am so sorry to hear flip has died.
I always enjoyed his dry sense of humor and good outlook on life.
It hurts to have another member gone. May he be in everlasting peace.

Flip always liked his Kalula and Nepro - I will raise a toast!  Flip was a real class act!  I, too, felt very saddened at his passing.
