Cool In Memory

Alexander Sosiak would have been another year older today. In memory of a great man, founder and mentor to our site. Still miss your knowledge and banter.

I second Dan's comments regarding Alexander. The good thing is that much of his knowledge and banter is forever recorded here for all who come to this Forum to put to good use and enjoy. According to what long time friend, Sandyboy said, Alexander was 49 when he passed away on March 10, 2008. This would have been his 51st birthday. For those of you who never got to know him you can read a lot more about him by going to this thread full of comments regarding Alexander. We, who knew him, and especially those who knew him very well, miss him greatly.. There are four pages of comments to read about him, here...

Default Me Too.........

Me Too! I miss my friend. We together, and alone, helped one & other to launch this board, and my (Sandy's) ascMcLaren board.
( Yes, that above is the age Alexander would become on this day. How odd, it be.... that this Sunday ia also MY birthday !! Lets see.... I'll be 63. Getting old.
Funny part of true friendship, I NEVER OWNED any year / Style Thunderbird and Alexander had no clue what an ascMcLaren was....
but it did not matter to either of us, we were friends, and friends help one & other out.
Shalom, Eternal Peace.

I joined up with Squarebirds Org., after Alexander had passed away. I think it would have been an Honour to have communicated with him whilst he was still with us, as I can tell that he was a very well liked & respected Man.

I am richer for Alexander's legacy. His greatness is profoundly measured in the gifts he continues to leave all of us in fellowship.

There are better men who came before me, who taught me, who passed the baton to me so I might pass their generosity on to many other great men.

Alexander authored Squarebirds; his gathering place, where we each enjoy life's journey while we anguish over our passions and our 'labors of love', together. In gratitude to Alexander, I shall make the very most of this journey as long as I am here.

My prayer is one of Thanksgiving; for Alexander who made Squarebirds possible, and to each and every member who shares a bit of themselves, here. - Dave Dare
