Default In Loving Memory of N9373M

My husband passed away. Unexpectedly. Too soon. Unprepared. He loved this forum.

I am very, very saddened to hear of this. Chris was a gentleman with the kindest soul. He taught me a lot about aviation. His demeanor on the Forums is to be emulated by all.

I will always cherish his PMs to me answering questions I posted on the Forums. I was going to ask him if he'd like to serve as a moderator, and I regret I'm too late.

I will never forget you, Chris, and all your contributions to aviation and to the Forums. You are a true aviator.

For the next 30 days, the Flight Schools and Training Forum will be renamed N9373M's Place.

Tailwinds, Chris. He really was enthusiastic about helping new aviators on this forum. I offer sincere condolences to his family.

One of the posters who tried to make me feel better and get me back on the horse after I had a not-so-great experience flying.

I am very sorry to hear about your loss, rest in peace my friend, fly high.
