Discussion in 'Okie Memorial Area' started by Eric, Jul 9, 2013.
He loved coming up to tulsa to eat at the casino buffet and do a little gambling.
No disrespect is meant for anyone. I don't think at this time, there should be any discussion of whom will be the next mayor of GT. I don't really know that there could be another Mayor of GT. Maybe a Vice Mayor or Mayor of Vice, but the Mayor of GT title should be retired.
I am positive that Okie wouldn't object to there being another mayor. I just don't feel that it would be fair to anyone, to try to follow in Okie's foot steps.
RIP Okie - my friend
There should never be another Mayor of Glock talk that title should be retired
I was supposed to send him some orange blossom honey next spring, he loved honey and couldn't wait for spring to get here to get the honey I promised
If there was anyone that Mark would want to be Vice Mayor, it would be LW.
The best I can figure, Okie was an angel sent to show us how to treat each other.
Right behind you! okie would have wanted that, too.
What if a collection were started and a large memorial-type headstone was purchased (with 1911's, his avatar, and a few of his choice quotes on it) and it were placed in one of his favorite areas?
Good point. I think you're on to something.
Yep. That sounds about right.
I agree. It's not a position that can be appointed to someone, the Mayor made it his. Okie showed how important GT was to him in the following photo. There he is, on a cruise ship, using the Internet Cafe pc to send messages from sea to a satellite in space and back to Earth and into your home. To his community, his friends, his family.
Rest in Peace Okie! Somehow even without even knowing him personally, when he ended his threads/posts with "my friend" it actually felt very genuine, like you were actually his friend.
I met Okie at a gun show in Tulsa in March or April of 2010. I PM'd him and gave him my phone number or vice versa and told him I'd be there on Saturday. He called, and we met up. I only got to speak with him about 25 mins as I was headed out the door. What a nice guy. Everything he was on here, he was in real life. Just truly seemed to enjoy life. I don't post much, or even log in much anymore. I tend to "lurk" and just enjoy the conversations. I will miss reading his posts for sure.
Okie!! Well, if that aint a crap sammich!!
I will miss you, big guy
Rest in Peace, my Friend.
That and calling work "the salt mine". A lot of folks thought he actually worked in a real salt mine. (I did too for a while)
This is probably my first post on this site as far as I can remember, I believe I signed up in the past to reply to a For Sale thread maybe. Regardless, I have unlocked my password today to sign in and post on this thread after I saw an e-mail in my inbox on this man. I never participated in this forum before but I am touched that this man had an impact on many of you on here. From the e-mail and words expressed in this forum, he sounds like a great man who was truly an asset to this forum. God Bless him and God bless you all. I give you all my condolences and hope you share the memories for the days ahead.
I wish you all well and I hope to perhaps get more involved on this forum in the future.
Your fellow Glock (20) owner STMAARTEN
Hello, to all.
I haven't posted here in a long time, but Okie really was a special member. His contributions made GT a great place to visit.
