Today I received the email I didnt want to get, but knew was coming, earlier than I expected.

Gill died on the 15 May 2009.

Information from owners of property where he lived.

He lived at the base of what is known as the Pyramid ( mountain) just south of Gordonavle and the Mulgrave River.

I will leave it up to make the anouncement on your site.

He will be missed by his family and all of us freedom fighters as he refused to bend to their ficticious system. He would not even accept the pension as it was not paid in cash. I think the health care was also rejected as he was not about to conceede that they owned him like a slave.

Regards
Greg Tudehope


I know he will be sadly missed by many members of this community. His contributions to this site and RE were many and will always be appreciated.

Glenn

Now I think, I'm hoping, this was the great Gill.

The room seems a little emptier all of a sudden.

I'm shocked and saddened.........

RIP Gill

I am sorry to see you have left us Gill and may I offer my condolences to all your friends and family.

If we ever need a postcard image your picture beside the ute would have to be top of the list.

Rest in peace.

I want to leave Gill as a active member of the forum, he will always have his place here. I didn't want the forum sending emails to his email address anymore, so I went into his email notify preferences and unticked all the forum posts he had subscribed to. Now that was a difficult thing to do, very heavy on the heart.

You can hear a pin drop in that room.
I will remember his help and enthusiasm with the projects on this board.

RIP Gill

What a shock!

I don't think I can say anymore than has already been said.

We all on this forum develop a friendship, even though we never actually meet. This forum is the club to helping each other gain some form of freedom. The information and being social, though miles apart, has been great. Thanks heaps Gill.

I have a poster on my bedroom wall. It say's "if you love someone, let them know". Gill, it is ashame you can't read these post's.

I would like to move a motion in the boardroom that we all start saying how we appreciate each other before they die. All in favour say..........to someone.

I will start by picking Bruce (downunder)... I really apreciate your posts. I love the way you can crack a joke. I love the way you experiment and discover great things and share the information with everyone, even when things go wrong.

This is not to say I don't appreciate all other members.

This just might help those marginal to stay as members. I miss the posts from Ross W. Though Gordon is very similar. A lot of expertise, muchly appreciated.

Lets see if this thread can become longer than the capacitors, just appreciating each other in some way.
