    Hey,

    I just wanted to inform whoever might of known or interacted him, Candid_x (Bruce)passed away today.

    He had been a member here for a long time, and he was the one to actually get me to join TGP, and, was my dad.

    Please keep him in your hearts.

    Thanks
    Eric

    Ah, Eric - I am so, so sorry. I had a number of really nice exchanges with your dad in Philosophy threads. He was a very thoughtful man anonymously; I can only imagine what he was like as a dad.

    Strength to you and your family.

    Very sorry to hear this. My condolences. I loved that he was in his 70s and posted John Petrucci videos. Cool fella in my book.
