    Oh, man! Thanks for posting about the Austin visit. I had forgotten all about that week.

    Michael came on board at Beck, to work with me, and he was working remotely from Idaho, until he could figure out the move to Dallas. A few months in, it worked out that i was leaving Beck. So we were teaching one final Revit Training week in the Austin office, so i drove down, and he flew down. (I *think* thats the week you mean, right? You, Michael Patrick, Scott Brown, and i all together in one place, for a week. LOL.) But it was super cool, because he and i hadnt had a "full week" to actually work together and hang out, since he had came on board. The first that we were there (he and i) we actually went out just the two of us, to talk about the transition (me leaving), and how things would be. But we ended up just talking about us, and our families, and all that stuff. Was an awesome time.

    St Louis was obviously many years later, but as luck would have it, my father and Michael Patrick ended up staying up late hanging out one night (long after i had gone to sleep with Ali and Adelyn). And the next morning, my dad wouldnt stop talking about how great a time he had, just talking about all kinds of stuff with Michael Patrick.

    Good dude, all around. Im gonna miss him, even if i didnt know him all THAT well, either. Just... a real good guy. Hope hes resting easy, now.

    This is so sad to hear. Even though I only "knew" him via this forum, it is still a shock.

    So sad but good to know about, thanks.

    Inasmuch as you can 'know' anyone on a forum he seemed a good guy and will definitely be missed.

    Yes, like most here, I only knew him "here."

    Sad news indeed.
