    Default This is a tough one... Blue Skies: Gary Thompson

    This IS tough.

    For those of you who don't know him... http://aafo.com/goose/gary-1.htm This man was almost completely responsible for getting this website off the ground in 1997. He was involved with the start up of more than one important museum, including the Spruce Goose Museum. He had connections, which he shared, that birthed this website with our first two important stories. He made us look like we had spent a million on this site to get going, when all we had was energy and the support of good friends.

    I'll write more as I digest this loss. This man was my mentor, my friend..

    Without him, there, likely, would be no AAFO.COM...

    Blue Skies: Gary Thompson

    You WILL be missed my friend!

    I'll share the entire story some day... there were some really amazing paths that crossed with my meeting of Gary Thompson... and the sharing of the Miss Ashley II "spy" shots we were given way back in the beginning.. there was another Gary in the story and the blocks fit together so brilliantly, as I look back, it's almost unreal!

    Thanks for noticing my post, Gary was an amazing person.... I appreciate your comment
