    It Was One Year Ago Today....

    My son just reminded me. On the 21st of February, 2006 our house burnt down. Man, where has that year gone? Even though everything worked out well in the end for our family, I want to forget the year 2006. Too many things got set on fire around here.

    I am glad every thing is well with your family now, and I hope 2007 is healthy and prosperous for you this year. I look forward to the in game chats again this year.

    What a year, GAC! I'm glad everything turned out OK, but I can't imagine all of the stress it caused.

    I had joined Redszone a week or so earlier (I overlooked my anniversary here!) and I remember seeing a comment about a "GAC fund" or something like that. That's when I realized this was a cool place. Glad things have been put back in place.

    Hey, no one-year re-enactments, ok? Let memories carry on.

    I'm sure it was a tough time, but I'm glad you and your family made it through just fine.

    Here-here. Houses can be replaced... other things cannot. And think of the odds of it ever happening again? Gotta take those odds, GAC!

    Glad you're back on your feet GAC. I'm sure it was a very rough year for you and your family.

    It's been good to see you and your family pull together and I think it showed the strength of the Redzone community.

    Just remember GAC,

    FIRE BAD!

    It shows people that this is far, far more then a sports discussion forum. I have always viewed those on here as an "extended family." It's also why I enjoy the Redszone gatherings. And it wasn't just in my case either. There have been numerous other situations over the last few years where members have suffered heartache or tragedy and the people of this forum have shown concern and wanting to help a friend and fellow human being.

    You people are on here made our "tragedy" far much more bearable last year.

    The new house has come along great. We've pretty much got it settled in and "homey". The kids (not Dad) have even broken a few things already. But hey! That's what make it a home.

    Again - a deep thanks and appreciation to you all from my family.
