    I didn't know Mr. Landry but obviously he is loved by many here!

    My condolences to his family!

    Damn straight. GT is somehow... diminished.

    I was just thinking of him the other day. One of many that used to post but no longer do. I knew about some of his issues and wondered if he was still with us. Apparently not. I will miss him.

    Chad also made Iraqi friends while working over there, even with a language barrier, they understood him enough to call him their friend. That speaks volumes about the kind of man he was, in a country that has many who despise Americans, he was well liked by the locals. Some even continued to keep in touch, after he returned to the states.

    ^^^ This.

    My first real contact with CJ here was shortly after I joined GT. I was out of work at the time, and he had a giveaway of NRA memberships. I entered, and ended up winning a year membership. We traded PM's to get my info, then got to talking about other things and life in general. Just an all around great guy. I've been able to pay forward those memberships, and when I do, it's always in honor of him for starting it.

    Yep. My membership had lapsed when Chad bought me a year, and one thing I promised him was that it wouldn't happen again.

    One of the funniest stories I remember him telling was when he was in Iraq and one night was playing guitar for some of his Iraqi friends. He asks them what they wanted to hear and out of all the things they could have said, they started begging him to play something from the Backstreet Boys. Thinking about it makes me chuckle a little.

    RIP, Mr. Landry. I'm sorry the last few years treated you like I did. Thank you for the good times here on GT, thank you for the conversations, and thank you for being one of the hardest-working, most decent, men I've ever known. You got a raw deal towards the end, but I hope you know just how many folks are remembering you since we got this terrible news.

    Rest in piece, my friend. I hope the other side is kinder to do you than this one has been, lately. I'm sorry we couldn't help more, but I hope what help we offered did some good.

    Did you see the post by our Mrs. Kitty outlining the medical issues he had leading up to his death?

    Friend who dies, it's something of you who dies.
    Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
    For You Chad :tequila:
    Time with You was a good time.

    A few of CJs posts below. I wish I could find that one where he recaps our having lunch at Nagasaki Restaurant. :)
