First GringoFool and now Michael Read.Oh my God. These were two of the people I really wanted to meet in real life after talking to them online on the Fool for years and years. I almost made that trip to Vancouver in British Columbia a few months ago, but didn't since I was unemployed. I would have visited Michael and Riprock.I am really sick about this.Michael was always the one that reached out to you in bad times. He was the grandfatherly, caring type. He had probably no enemies....period. He always had just the right word to console you....really. He really had a way with words.Remember, when I first told the board I was unemployed?? He emailed me and gave me his phone number to call him. And guess what?? I didn't do it. I am really regretting that now.He was a man of great accomplishment as well. He had many occupations and endeavors in life. Some really stunning stuff he did.Michael was well-known on the board for his boat stories. He loved the water. He owned a boat shop in the area......and sadly had to close the place down recently. He has written recently about it. He was well loved on the Fool for many, many years. I loved him as a grandfather I never had. RIP...Michael Read. If Art is right, I will meet you some day. I will give you a great big hug.
