I am well, thanks. I'll send you a PM.


I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with Corq and all the families. It's great to put a face to the name that I recognize all the way back to my early days in the FRN. So many funny and weird times. Al and I would sometimes chat about different topics on IRC. The one that I remember was that he was an ex brother-in-law of Gary Richrath, the lead guitarist of REO Speedwagon. Since they were one of my favorite bands back in the day, I had lots of questions.
Thanks for sharing the picture Corq.

Pigmeat - great to see you back too. I remember logging one of the last RPI shows during the waning days of the FRN. Lots of good memories.
