    Words fail me.....................

    While I never met Mr. McCracken in person, I sometimes "chatted" with him via e-mail/PM, etc. VERY knowledgeable, helpful and courteous man. I hope that somehow, some way, some time I will be able to return even 1% of what I learned from him.

    We are all diminished by this.

    I am deeply saddened to read this.

    Dave, you have always been a wealth of experience and knowledge, and you were always willing to share them with us in a manner that made it a pleasure to read. You are in my prayers.

    I would hate to miss the chance to say how much Dave's advice and expertise meant to me and the time and trouble that I otherwise would have devoted to foolish things. I try to tell my kids that the gift of reading is that you can learn from every mistake ever recorded instead of painfully repeating them yourself, and when they're big enough for shotguns I'll start them on his comments! Godspeed, and thanks.

    This good man went his way last night, surrounded by his loving wife and children.

    Blake David McCracken, I am better for having known you. Go in peace.

    I'm a better man for having met and shot with Dave at Greenbelt.

    Go with God my friend.
