azsarge 16 MAR 82 - 10 JUL 10
« on: July 10, 2010, 01:07:28 PM »
Early this morning, AAer 'azsarge' passed away.

The only thing known absolutely for sure is that Airsoft Arizona has lost one of it's greatest contributors, members and friends.

CT will never be the same again.

As long as the Army doesn\'t know my motivation, they\'ll gladly call me a war hero.

I don't think that I got a chance to meet him in person, but my prayers are with his family and friends.

Wow, I can't believe he's gone... The forum will not be the same without him. I think we should all hold something in his honor. Game, get together, or whatever. Wish I could have met him too. He seemed awesome, and helped me out here in the forum quite a bit.

R.I.P. azsarge. We will miss you dearly [smilie=armata_pdt_40.gif]

I never met him but as a member of the AA community He will be missed dearly.


High Flight
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Bravo Pick. Quite well written. Whether an original or quote, I think azsarge is content, glad we all are celebrating his moving to a better place.
