…I don’t know how else to describe how I feel after reading this.

Right now, I’m just stunned. Allan, or “Skipper” as he was more affectionately known, has been around for so long that I don’t even remember when exactly, and he’s been a friend of the Empire for at least as long, so learning that he is no more, that his particular style and ability to deliver precise, devastating written blows to the tender parts of Moonbats will no longer brighten my day.

I’ll miss you, Allan, I’ll miss you a lot, and you’d better keep a cold one or twelve ready for when we meet again, so that we can share the beer that I never got to share with you in this life.

My prayers go out to your two sons. May G-d give them strength and may your memory forever live in those of us who were lucky enough to know you either online or offline.

Rest in peace, my friend.

Horrible, horrible news.

    I never knew who “Skipper” was until just now, but if Misha is grieving for him, then he must have been a great man.

    May God have mercy on his soul and may He offer solace to his family.

    Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord.
    And let perpetual light shine upon him.
    May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
    Amen

    Barking Moonbat has always been right up at the top of my links to visit regularly. His site covered just about everything, politics, photography and I was enjoying his “Where Am I” series on guessing military airports around the country.

    May his families grief be assuaged by the knowing the joy he brought to so many through his site.

    To the Soul of our departed friend and Brother Alan:

    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    And to his loved ones and friends, left behind:

    May The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

    May The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

    May The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

    Requiescat In Pace

    Wow. I hadn’t been to his site in quite some time so I had no idea that he was even ill… but I used to go there all the time. I used to really like the site a lot, and I even wrote him an email or two discussing a few things, he seemed like a great guy. He will be missed.

    The Skipper was a daily dose of inspiration, and helped me find this site. I have to wonder if he knew it was coming, one of his last posts ended rather cryptically:

    All I can really tell you is (a) keep a firm grasp of right and wrong, (b) stay involved in government and watch the bastards in Washignton every minute, (c) use every legal means to make sure you can defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and (d) keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere.

    We’ll miss you Skipper.

    I actually knew him in real life. He worked for me in Austin for awhile. He was some character and a great Oracle DBA. I am looking forward to downing a few cocktails with him on the other side of the pearly gates (I am in no hurry to get there). Keep my barstool warmed up Allan (preferably with the fanny of a good looking redhead).

    Allan was a great guy. I used to heckle him about how he got his JPEG images to look so good. For those who are not familiar with BMEWS, it had some of the best photography on the net. We are diminished by Allan’s passing, but enriched for having known him.

    Oh my God. I just found out. I went over to his site. I’m shocked. His blog was one of my favorites.

    RIP Skipper.
