    I feel horrible for questioning his decision to drive from Atlanta rather than fly down in that other thread. He seemed to be having such a good time so far. Mods, feel free to move this to the Condolences forum. I have nothing to say as far as accident analysis. I am speechless.

    I just saw this thread this morning, and went back and read some of what jringold had posted regarding his trip, and his concerns regarding nitrox, and MOD.

    I never met this man, and yet I feel I know him well. In the 25 years I've been diving, I have often had the pleasure of meeting, and getting to know folks just like him. The passion for the sport that he had recently discovered, leading to a thirst for knowledge, and a friendly nature that leads you quickly in to conversations that make it seem like you have known each other for many years. You either posses these qualities, or you don't, and from what I've seen on this board he certainly did.

    We lost one of our own this past weekend, and I would like to also send my condolences to his family and friends.
