By my count there have been 18,563 hits on the various threads regarding Car Wash Mike’s death and it keeps growing in number. I’ve read them all and it appears that at least half are from Eggheads who rarely if ever post on the Forum and most had never met him in person. Yet they came forward to say a few words about a man who affected their lives by his contributions to the Forum. Whether it be a “welcome to the Forum” to a Newbie, or explaining for the millionth time how to cook ribs, he always did so with the same enthusiasm as he did with all of his thousands of posts. He wanted everyone to enjoy Egg’n as much as he did.
But the numbers also reflect what kind of people make up our group of Eggheads. The replies, comments and condolences were very genuine and heavily laced with emotion. We all feel the loss and will continue to do so for a very long time. No wonder he was so pleased to be an Egghead.
Even in death he brought out the best in each of us. We will miss him.
