Today, September 9th was the birthday of one of the nicest people I have ever met on the internet or anywhere else for that matter. A true friend of the blogger community, surf music addicts, and guitar fanciers, my friend Randy, or as most of you know him Eek! the Cat, lost his long battle with illness on July 10th. I only found this out last week by a friend who had checked in to Randy's Facebook page and saw the notice. I'm still a little stunned over this. Strange, you might say, for someone who had never met the man in person but Randy had a way of really touching you with his open and kind manner. I know he had the same impact on many others out there as he always tried to keep upbeat no matter how bad he felt. I visited his Facebook page myself last week and saw how much he meant to his wife, daughters, brothers and friends. I know I will always feel the loss.
He was a remarkable man, my friend Randy.
