Still not ready to believe it. It's like I'm waiting for Okie to post something or anything wondering whats going on.

But I'll be honest, when he posted about fainting a couple of times and getting some more tests done, I knew that wasn't good news. I had just checked his thread and wondering about the results maybe a couple of days ago. It's even harder to believe he is gone so soon after.

I don't think anyone can say a cross word about Mark. This sucks beyond words for us. He and all the others are in a better place., but we are deminished.

I was getting ready to suggest naming GNG after Okie.

I know. Sitting in bed in the dark with my laptop I actually got a small smile through the tears. God bless him.

This sucks. I'm gonna miss tearing up the Vegas buffets with him when he comes to town. I still remember when I met him after Kurt and Linda got married. We went to the Orleans buffet and he was wearing a camo shirt that said "I beat anorexia." It's a damn shame, prayers and condolences to his family. Gonna miss you Mark. See you on the other side.

Wow I hadn't heard. I've been away from GT for a couple days. So sad. It really is terrible because the dude literally never said anything especially hurtful, ignorant, or negative, Which is rare for GT, especially in GNG, his preferred hangout.

Okie/Mark, you were an awesome dude from my observations, never had a mean thing to post about anyone. You were an interesting character, a nice addition to the melting pot we call GT. tomorrow I shall eat Taco Bell, shoot my 1911, and drink some clamato red beers.

Rest in peace my friend, long live the memory of the Almighty Mayor of GT

:(

Thank you Okie for the kind way you had with each of us.

You own the previous gng now, it has a much better name! I already toasted to it.

What a gentleman. A kind and gentle man. Not sure I've ever noticed okie to be angry and mean to anybody on here.
May God welcome you home.

Okie's not really gone, he's just cruising in another realm.

Good journey, my friend.

This is one of the saddest threads I've ever read on GT. Unfortunately unlike many of you I never had the chance to meet Okie. My loss. But he truly was the mayor of GT. It will take some time to realize he is gone.
Okie R.I.P.
