    I知 Sorry.

    I知 on my way to CofC in Milwaukee this morning. As I landed in Nashville moments ago, I got a call from Amie. She痴 just gotten off the phone with Mary, Wookee痴 wife.

    Our Wook suffered a heart attack last night and left us this morning. He痴 been part of the vanning community and our club since the beginning. He will always be part of our club.

    I知 in a crowded airport and I知 trying to keep it together.

    This is a loss to all of us here. Wookee was the guy who shouda wrote the book on these vans.
    He always had a kind word and a expert opinion regardless of the member.

    Condolences to his wife and family. I will remember you Wook!

    Wookie, what a class act! I will miss you brother. RIP and all my best to his wonderful family, he made mention of them often and we all knew he had his priorities right.
