    I also wanted to add that the last thing ORG did on RedsZone was to not think of himself, but of others. He contributed a set of 1950's era Reds baseball cards to a lucky member here who contributed to the site during our spring "donation drive". Thanks again, ORG. You'll be missed.

    Very sad. ORG will be missed.

    What a wonderful man ORG was. I loved his posts, and looked forward to every word he wrote.

    RIP to an outstanding person.

    Damn! I was hoping he was just getting some private time. I guess I knew in my heart, I just didn't want it to be true.

    I miss you Old Red Guard. Protect your friends and family as you look down upon us. :angel:

    I hope we at Redszone gave you at least a small sample back of what you gave us.

    Surely someone in here is creative enough and has the computer know how to make a card and those who want to can "sign" it or just have it say "FROM HIS FRIENDS AT REDSZONE" and have it emailed to the family? Perhaps even add his famous post that M2 brought back.

    It was a pleasure to read Old Reg Guard's contributions here at Redszone, especially also for the younger folks.

    Very sad to hear he passed away.

    Thank you Savafan for posting Mrs. Elledge's letter. I'm very sorry to hear of ORG's passing. I miss his posts, many of which were classics, worthy of publication.

    I am very sorry to hear of his passing. Whenever I saw he posted in here, I'd be so eager to read his stuff. We in RedsZone are all the much better for the baseball knowledge, history, and perspective that he passed down to us all. And just for being such a cool guy and sharing with us the way he did.

    One thought I've often had... It's great to live in a city such as Cincinnati with the rich baseball heritage it has.

    One common theme of a conversation I can have with a 8 yr. old neighborhood kid, my 70 yr. old mother-in-law, some guy in the elevator, the priest at our church, the guys over beers, or my 13 yr. old niece is the Reds. I'm often struck by some of the unlikely places you find a Reds fan and the passion we all have for them.

    RIP Old Red Guard and God Bless.

    Me too.

    I went looking for it in this site but couldn't find it. Must be in a previous incarnation of this site.

    Is old content available somewhere?
