Ratmonkey memorial thread

I am sure many of you know of the loss of one of our mods here on the forum.

I would like to try and dedicate a thread to him. hopefully we can all relate real life stories or memorable situations from here on the forum.

Tyler (Ratmonkey) was my best friend for the last 27 years, that's right I'm only 32, We have been friends since kindergarten. we have all lost something from his passing. Hopefully we can keep his memory alive here on the forum for a long time to come.

Here is a donations thread that i made to help his mother settle some of his financial affairs. if you can spare anything i beg you to help.

Hey Mike, I just finished reading through the memorial thread and the announcement thread on jeepforum. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to let everyone know that we read it and we truly appreciate all the kind words and we are just so glad that he was so well liked? Really made me feel good to know it. : ) [Even though I knew it.] And I know Mom feels the same. Hope you guys are all doing OK.

Wow. So sad, just saw this today. Prayers out to his family/friends

egodfrey 06-17-2013 09:15 PM

My condolences

Ill see what I can donate tomorrow, but it will definitely be something.

egodfrey 06-18-2013 07:33 AM

Done, I like that what ever is left over will be used to finish his rig, it's a fitting way to honor a man who gave so much if his time to help others with theirs.

i'm just hearing this now. seems like he was well known on here. unfortunately i did not know him or ever have contact on here, but so sorry for your loss. had a local jeeper pass away not to long ago as well (car accident). very sad...RIP.

i don't have any money to give at the moment but when i do i'll check back and donate what i can. i also hope by me bumping this thread up, others will see and donate what they can.

stickers/decals will be the rub and peel type like the old jeepforum stickers/decals. they will be the same design as the front and back of the shirt. i am thinking they will be sold as a set of 2 (one of each type).

there has not been any idea of pricing as of yet for them.

decals have not been made yet so i have no idea.

sorry for forgetting you guys!

yes we recieved the XXL XXXL and another batch of other sizes earlier this week.

i will need anyone interested to pm me with their order details.

we also got in a box of flat rate shipping containers to keep the shipping cost down.

cause i'm lazy and don't want to type everything on every thread.
