    Wow! I hate to hear this. I don't think I've ever HATED anything more than I hate Cancer. Prayers to Mr. Parkhill's family, and may you rest in peace, CBZ40. :(

    My original post in this thread cannot even begin to explain how sad I was to get this news. Most people in here would not know this, but Cbz40 was my Jiminy Cricket, my conscience on this site. I asked that of him when he joined the staff here. I told him to tell me if I was ever out of line with posters when I got in a heated debate.

    Oh boy would he tell me I was out of line. It was always funny when he did it, but he meant it too.

    I have the phone numbers for the staff and for the last couple of months I have been calling to check on him, but he always wanted me to give him some space. He actually felt guilty that he wasn't well enough to get up every morning and post Cowboys articles in the Daily Zone for you Zoners. I assured him that we wanted him to get better and not to worry about it.

    That was the kind of man he was though. He was willing to search for news and he was willing to jump my butt and jerk my chain. I know a lot of people get offended by me when in a debate because I have such a good time arguing my points. Cbz40 always brought me back to being a nice guy because he was so danged nice.

    You know, I think Pops was one of a kind. No one else on this forum is quite like him. I valued his friendship and his wisdom more than I have the ability to say.

    When I was talking to his daughter and she told me the news she told me they had tried to find my phone number so they could call sooner. Now I'm feeling a bit guilty that I didn't call sooner, but he had asked me to be patient and give him some space.

    I talked to him just a couple of days before he died. He was weak, but he was joking, and he was determined he was going to win the fight with cancer. I posted the news in the Mod Zone for the staff and then I literally had to step away from the forum and breathe a huge sigh of relief. He meant that much to me.

    Today's news hit me like a ton of bricks. Someone said they feel like they've been kicked in the gut. Me too. He was so much more than a friend. He was someone I truly look up to. He was a great man and an asset to this forum that we can never truly replace.

    I said before we will be doing some kind of tribute to him. We just need some time as a staff to digest this and figure out what that tribute will be.

    He deserved it. This man truly deserved every good wish you are all expressing. I asked him if I could post a thread about his illness and ask you for your thoughts and prayers. He told me he didn't want any of you to worry about that with the season coming.

    Yep, right in the gut.

    I was looking at some of Cbz40's old threads and found this. I hope he doesn't mind having it reposted now.
