    Default Passing of Forum Member

    Those of you who've been around these parts as long as some of us have may remember user "JPSmith2" who was active in here for several years in the earlier years of the AFG program.

    John was always willing to share his winning narratives (which can still be found in some threads) and was successful in obtaining $566,730 in just two Operations awards for a rather small rural volunteer department. (Quite a feat)

    John succumbed to cancer on July 21st, 2009 at the age of 35.

    Unusual enough to have one forum member pass away, let alone two so close together.

    My condolences to Mr. Smith's friends and family.

    Rest peacefully in the arms of the angels, JP.

    35 years old and secures that much funding for his department. Man. They have go to be distraught over losing such a successful member. He must have had the heart of a true volunteer.

    Did his avatar have Tigger, I think?

    Very sad, he'll be in my thoughts and prayers.
