I really enjoyed reading Rifleman's posts. He had such a great depth of knowledge. I learned a great deal from reading his posts. When I get time, I will go back and read more of his posts from over the years. He will definitely be missed on this forum. A farewell salute to a brother-in-arms.

I had become a HUGE Chris Smither fan because of a link Don posted to one of his songs. I will always remember him for that gift.

He made excellent contributions to our forum. He will be greatly missed and much appreciated. He was an ocean of wisdom and excellently biting humor. Condolences to his family.

It would be difficult not to miss the contributions of someone that posted in such a well considered and unique style.

As with many here, I'm saddened to hear of Don's (Rifleman) passing. Though illogical, I will always expect to read one of his off-color, humorous replies to those who made comments contrary to his non-belief. His life indeed had meaning and resonance with those of us lucky enough to receive a bit of his wisdom and knowledge.

RIP Rifleman.
