Wish there was more like Doc.

Although i never got to know Doc i feel as if i have known him all my life, and i really do miss him also, and to this day i read everything i can that he has posted. we lost a very knowledgeable person and spirited helpful person when Doc left us. And thank you Poncho for a list of doc's work.

I was reading one of his answers on a Plymouth Acclaim problem this morning and, being a new member, did not realize he had passed.

Sorry to hear of this and very sorry I did not have the pleasure of knowing him..

A side note, my Name, is very old, in interweb terms and is not a copy of this highly regarded member.

Best Wishes for a good new year to all.
