    I hope there is an afterlife just for good people like Jim. I was reading through some PMs as well and he suffered so at the end. He couldn't write anymore and that is what he loved to do.

    He put a lot of effort into making those PMs even readable.

    He made the long drive to his VA clinic and then sat there all day waiting for treatment. Smh...

    Maybe they'll let us share some of those better PMs. He was a lot of fun to talk to.

    Trump needs to fix up the sickness that is stealing the money from our veterans.

    Impenitent was pretty gentlemanly and he had mental tangents that kept me very alert. :D We laughed at the idea of 'impenitence' in Judaism since it is clear that the name pick is of a Christian influence and not Judaic. :D

    As far as our ending this mortal coil? I have studied the Tanakh in it's original format and I think that everyone goes. The more stain we carry, the longer it takes us to finish the trip.

    I wasn't here for the last year and change so I missed all that time.

    Too bad we don't say these kinds of things more often when the person is still alive. Kind of sad.

    Just looked it up.. Only moderation note Impenitent EVER got was from me. (in modern age USMB anyways) And I wrote him up because he placed a poem to me in the Enviro Forum... And I hated myself for doing it because I laughed silly when I read his work..

    In fact -- I snipped the poem and some of the posts and moved it to the Flame Zone -- because I was so flattered.

    Error | US Message Board - Political Discussion Forum

    I'll always have that remembrance bookmarked. And I'll miss the guy..

    Never knew how to respond to news like this. "RIP" and the like have always rolled off the tongue with a self-serving lilt, at least to my own ear. The posthumous well wish, otherwise known as the ultimate contradiction in terms.

    Looking back, I'm grateful that Imp gave me the opportunity to say goodbye to him via PM back in late August.
