Hey admins, maybe that could be a project for you,as a memorial,lol, I love volunteering others time. Seriously though, if someone can tell me how I could do it, I would.
Here's one. this one made me laugh until i was hurting when he posted.
Valuable Home Remedies
1. If You're Choking On An Ice Cube, Simply Pour A Cup Of Boiling Water Down Your Throat. Presto! The Blockage Will Instantly Remove Itself.

2. Avoid Cutting Yourself When Slicing Vegetables By Getting Someone Else To Hold The Vegetables While You Chop.

3. Avoid Arguments About The Toilet Seat - Use The Sink.

4. For High Blood Pressure Sufferers ~ Simply Cut Yourself And Bleed For A Few Minutes, Thus Reducing The Pressure On Your Veins. Remember To Use A Timer.

5. A Mouse Trap Placed On Top Of Your Alarm Clock Will Prevent You From Rolling Over And Going Back To Sleep After You Hit The Snooze Button.

6. If You Have A Bad Cough, Take A Large Dose Of Laxatives. Then You'll Be Afraid To Cough.

7. You Only Need Two Tools In Life - Wd-40 And Duct Tape. If It Doesn't Move And Should, Use The Wd-40. If It Shouldn't Move And Does, Use The Duct Tape.

8. Remember - Everyone Seems Normal Until You Get To Know Them.

9. If You Can't Fix It With A Hammer, You've Got An Electrical Problem.

Daily Thought: Some People Are Like Slinkies - Not Really Good For Anything, But They Bring A Smile To Your Face When Pushed Down The Stairs.

Oh, dear, sweet, Katie. I haven't been able to get on to DC for a few days and was just horrified when I found this. I'm so sorry for you and your family. I'll be keeping you all close in my heart and prayers. As everyone has said, it was truly an honor to have had the chance to get to know Buck. And the two of you were blessed to have each other.

Always know that we're here, loving you, and ready to do anything we can for you.

{{{hugs}}}

I see how loved you two are in the DC community and, as a new DC'er, I appreciate your valuable contributions to this forum as friends and mentors. Buck's contributions will live on in his dialogue here, and in the hearts of those he touched in life. My deepest condolences.

Dearest Katie, I am so sorry that this came to pass. Like everyone here, we were hoping for a different outcome. I cannot imagine how alone you must feel without him. Too soon, too soon for Buck. I don't pretend to understand it and I have no words to explain it. I am so sorry.

i am certain many of you know this. we need to be there for the long haul.

we must let kate set the agenda and then back her all the way.

sorry, when i confront situations like this, i look for a way to help.

I just got home and came here first. I am so sorry to hear the news I dreaded to hear. You lost a wonderful man Katie, and I can't even begin to express how much I sympathize with you. Your kids have lost a caring father. We at Discuss Cooking have lost a good friend. I loved teasing Buck and I didn't mind him teasing me. Buck had a knack for posting exactly what I was going to say, right before I could post. I'm really going to miss that.
