What amazes me is, considering all the fun that Doug brought to ALL of the forums, why only 32 would honor his final wish?

Check out the link in my signature!! I know Doug had more than 32 friends.

Thanks!

I sent the big lug some REP. Doug was and is the all time most favorite poster of AZ Billiards. Thanks for reminding me that he liked REP. :-) Doug had a lot more than 32 friends. It's just that people have moved on with what's happening today and you can't blame them.

Life goes on.

I can't give Smorgie any rep today until I spread it around a little more.

But I can do this:

GREEN REP FOR SMORGIE!

I'll come out of the AZB woodwork for this one. I've been staying away from the pool forums, in particular AZB, for the past year or two and just learned of Doug's passing tonight. Yes, Smorg had many more than 32 friends, (now 33), and I'm sure there will be more like me that weren't aware of his demise. Even though it's been awhile since he and I emailed back and forth, I'll miss him for a long time to come. This coming weekend I'm going back through some of those emails and in particular saved RSB posts from happier and friendlier times, and plan to enjoy them all over again.

My deepest, though belated condolences to Barb, and in particular to you Joey. I do know how close the two of you were.

For those of you who are so inclined, visit the web site above and leave a comment for Doug and Barb. A donation isn't necessary to leave a comment and Doug would understand you not donating (for whatever reason) but he really liked hearing from everyone and I'm sure he's "keeping an eye " on all of us now.

Bob, if you get a chance, maybe you could re-post one of your fondest RSB thread/post of Smorgass Bored.

Best Regards,

JoeyA

The comparatively few people posting comments may be misleading. My comments never appeared although they had no problem taking my donation!

Click on link....add rep

Click Here

or Here


The hardest part about someone dying close to you is not the first or second month. It's usually 3-6 months later.

The little things that jarg your memory and you want to run tell that person something, or pick up the phone and call them, or call out their name with no response. It is not easy. It is a pain that each individual has to deal with on their own. Sadness, loneliness, guilt, anger, acceptance, forgiveness then moving on. It's a process.

You will not and are not expected to forget that person but someday you will go 24-48 hours without thinking of them. (And that is Okay!) Eventually (years later) you'll remember them just on certain occasions with fond memories and the pain will be less, I assure you.

A friend and I recently listened to a speaker talk who said death is not an end but a begining and that it is a process of life and that the spirt never truly dies. Our loved ones are just in the next room to us waiting for us to come in.

Barb if you are reading, there are some wonderful books available and I'm sure you will find all AZBers ready at your side should you need any assistance, please let us know.
Mike and Donna

I am thinking about Smorgie today. It is his birthday.

I still miss you Smorgie. This forum just doesn't rock and roll quite the same.

Save me a seat on the rail in Heaven. The angels must be having a blast with you in their midst!

Smorg works in wonderful ways. I had one of "those" days where people were just being rude and unkind for some reason. Not to me in particular, but to others. I interjected with a bit of Smorgeske humor and the fuse went out instantly. Love you Doug!

Smokey -- we've never met but I like you man!
