  • Lost a dear friend and fellow TR6 owner.

    Just learned this afternoon that my oil brother and tour mate of nearly 30 years has passed.
    Few, if any here knew him well but I know some had met him at Triumphests held here on the west coast. He was a 6-Pack member and posted a few times on the old site.
    His name was Bill Fisk and he had heart of gold.
    He will be sorely missed, may he rest in peace.

                  We never die. We just leave our bodies and enter a spirit realm. Spirits are capable of visiting the living that they choose to visit, when the living are in a sleep/unconscious/subconscious state. Pets, too.

                  There are millions of people that believe this- there is a huge genre of books on this matter- check Amazon.

                  I have had more then a decade of dreams/visions being visited by family members and friends that have passed on. Always a surprise visit.
                  People & pets where love was mutual. Incredibly substantial dreams, usually brief & waking me immediately afterwards.

                  A preacher likes to show me scripture in the Bible that when you die you are dead. But, experiences demonstrate our bodies are gone, but spirit lives on.
                  If you are uncomfortable with my words, please just ignore this.

                      Just watched this 10 minute video by Drew Binsky (world traveler and videographer).

                      It shows a different way of handling a coffin at a funeral, in Ghana, Africa. A different way to celebrate a persons death.

                      Check it out if you have 10 minutes, it's a novel approach.

                          Bruce, I am sad to hear about the loss of your good friend. The next time I am wrenching on the 6 I will toast the two of you, fellow comrades in Triumphs.

                            Novel approach to western cultures that is. Posts #11 and 12 not being most our cultural expressions, we each should wish to be as celebrated in thought instead of the mundane.

                            "His name was Bill Fisk and he had heart of gold." I wish I had met Bill. I love sharing time and space with people with a heart of gold. Today I will toot my horn to celebrate Bill.

                              Sorry to hear Bruce. We in the greater Sacramento area should get out and enjoy our cars in his honor.
