Another Member of the GTA Family has Passed On
« on: April 07, 2013, 07:37:46 PM »
I have to report with sadness in my heart, the passing of a fellow GTA family member. Mrs Ginny McMeans informed us that her husband Ed, forum member "tracka", has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out for Ed, Ginny and their entire family. He will be missed by his GTA family.

We were just informed by Ed McMeans, AKA Tracka, wife that he has passed on. I personally I did not know Ed but my blessings go out to his wife and family. He was a part of the GTA family and deserves to be honored for his time with us and the entire air gun community.

Mrs. Ginny, our prayers are for you and your family to have peace and comfort during this time.  I'm thankful that Mr. Ed was a part of the GTA. 

Blessings

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."  Thomas Jefferson

I did not know him, but always is a loss felt by any family member. even when that family is through a forum of fellow comrades.
Blessings and best thoughts go to him and his family.
