    My sincerest condolences to warchild's family. May he rest in peace.

    What all the other EDCF members wrote about him says it all.

    I prepared one several months ago, and was hoping not to ever have to use it. It was applied yesterday after my announcement. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1453074747.540460.jpg
    It means "In everlasting remembrance."

    Never had a chance to meet you, but you were obviously well liked and respected in this little corner of the Internet.
    Thoughts and condolences for you and your family.

    In the few conversations I had with him, all I can say is he was the best and will be missed. RIP Warchild

    I will reiterate what many have said.
    Although I did not directly know him, the posts left on this thread serve as a testament that we have lost a truly great person.
    Godspeed to his family and friends in this community and abroad.
    Rest in peace warchild

    Dear Warchild,

    To the only person who in my 42 years on this earth ever truly understood my obsession with skunks.

    Well brother.. I will always remember the conversation that started our friendship back in April of 2014. You asked me if I read Backwoodsman after seeing that Shear Knife I made. I will remember our phone calls and many texts, while I never thought to say it then, they meant alot to me. I will always be grateful to you for being a true friend who supported me through the loss of my baby daughter and who checked in with me daily to see if I needed someone to talk to. I will also be grateful for your keeping me company those late nights I was up unable to sleep while my oldest was over in Afghanistan. I was so proud when you took the "Wild Bitch" I made you and carried her through a dangerous part of your career. I remembered seeing how abused she was after that stint and felt happy to have been able to give back to you by contributing to the tools of your trade, even in the smallest way. I can only hope that I returned even a fraction of the friendship you showed me. Even now I wonder why God felt it was your time to go, we need as many men like you on this earth as we can muster. My prayers will continue for your family and I will do whatever is in my power to support them. If the opportunity presents itself I will tell your son about his father, the man I knew, and whose friendship I will forever cherish.

    Through our friendship I was aware that you were a loving husband, a caring father, a ferocious sheep dog protecting the sheep of the world, and a dear friend to myself and others on this forum. Many of us knew you online and knew you were more than some random person on the internet, we knew you were special. Those of us who were blessed enough to be let into your world realized that you were in fact much, much more.

    Thank you again for your friendship and your love brother.

    Your friend,

    FloridaWoodsBum

    Fellow Leo, warrior and one of the first folks to reach out to me on this forum and offer advice and friendship. I wish I had known you better, but know I am better for having met you if only for a brief moment. You are missed so much and remembered so fondly. Prayers are with your family. RIP warchild

    I'm a bit short on words at the moment, so all I will say is thank you for your generosity. Your friendship wasn't the only gift you gave me but it was the greatest. You are missed.

    Only being new to the forum I didn't know Warchild, what I do know is that he must of been a top fella to get all these nice messages. Rest in peace Sir.

    Just catching up.
    Really sad news. Wishing peace and love to his family.

    He was the first person to welcome me when I started the forum all that time ago and such a friendly person. So sad.

    Seems like everything was plotting to remind me of you today brother, I turned a corner and this literally fell off the shelf right in my path. Keep an eye out up there..

    The day it was posted of Warchild's passing one of my friends on FB posted a pic of a polar bear relaxing in a sitting position leaning on the back of another polar bear.
