    A tribute to one of our beloved members. Poppy 4...

    There has been concern about Poppy 4 as he had not posted since around christmas. Upon investigation I was able to get ahold of his phone number & called this am. Talked to his daughter & she told me that Poppy had passed away due to a massive heart attack the day after christmas. None of us knew as he kept a low profile here but he was a celebrity in the Cleveland Ohio area. He was a disk jockey at WMMS Radio. Here is a sample of his radio work, http://www.supload.com/listen?s=SIilqhsUtWb. Please join in & send out prayers for his family. If you like you can leave a message in his guest book. http://www.legacy.com/cleveland/Deat...sonID=20499649 . He will be missed. BJ

    He will be missed.

    Here's a tribute page by his former radio station, WMMS, in Cleveland with some pictures and audio clips.

    This is the 2nd time since I've been with JM that we've lost a great person on our forums. The other was a mod on hardwarecentral.com, Ranger Al, whom we lost late in 05. We had our NY rangers fandom in common, and bonded because of it. I still miss him too.
