    Is there a story behind the "mon stars"?
    Instead of calling them Monsters, he viewed them as his STARS. Peter claimed when they were mischevious, he called them monsters. Can't remember him using that in the 6 years I knew him.

    They were his world, and lighted it like the Stars that he called them. He was so proud of them for their achievements in what he called football, swimming, academics, etc. and he was forever quick to pull out the photos.

    I remember when he got the boys the dirt bike, he was like a kid himself. He was so excited, I thought he would blab it before they received it.

      C'cake that is really touching. I can relate. 18+ years post, my daughters have been my world, my everything, my Stars - good way of putting it. Even did the dirt bike thing, got some great video of that.

      Dogger was the kind of guy I'd like to be seen as. Thanks again for posting that.

        I am very saddened to hear this devastating news about Dogger. I know how much he loved his children and how proud he was of them.

        Dogger was one of the few people I spoke to in "chat", and he was always so kind and considerate ............ a good man! I respected him very much and LOVED his sense of humour.

        My condolences go out to his family and loved ones .......... he will be missed.

        Sadly,
        Darlene

          Wow, what sad news. I haven't posted for awhile but have been online to read regularly. I didn't know Dogger, but felt like I did as his personality came through on the page. I was always interested in what he had to say. He was a force here. My condolences to his family.

                I am very sad... Dogger was, is, and will be an example and a source of inspiration for me. A few day ago I was thinking to PM him for the first time to get in touch with him... too late now, may be he can read this post...

                  Dogger, I'll miss you terribly, your sense of humor especially. I hope you're entertaining the Big Man up there with stories like this:

                    Well, wasn't expecting to check the life thread and find this. Even though I haven't checked around here in a while, it is still a special place and not sure how I would have moved forward without it. That especially goes for the people around here and Dogger was one of the unique characters of care cure.

                    He always seemed to have an aire of calmness about him and perspective to know what was important. I feel better for being lucky enough to cross his path and for at least getting to meet him for a few minutes in DC 2007.

                    Rest in peace my friend.

                      Bruce: Thanks for that link and those reminders. I was on line chatting with Peter when the toilet began to overflow. Never saw anyone disappear so fast, lol. After the potential buyers left, I got the online colorful version.

                      I still stand with the position that the journal needs to be put into a book, it was damn funny at times combined with many tears. If we did the book, we have a few to many "In Memory Of".

                        Damn-it. Dogger and I used to pm and e-mail. I should have checked sooner; I don't log on often.

                        Miss you man . . . .

                          ugh.
                          I hate being away from cc and coming back to news like this. I can only nod my head in agreement with what everyone else has already said about a truly wonderful man. And I have to quote lynnifer because she nailed it:

                          Death is simply the next step in our journey through life.

                          Take care on the other side Dogger, you're free.

                            Wow, kinda shocking. Dogman is one man who makes me smile. Tough old bugger he is.........I am so sorry to hear he is gone but rejoice in his heart and spirit. Lexi

                              My thoughts goes to his kids and hope they find solace in what dogger meant to those of us in the physical world. And cheers with a beer to a man suited to take care of the bigger ranch he's moved to, where the snakes aren't so cocky, the ladies still swoon, the word "Foster's" is never spoken, and there's always a hook to hang his hat on at the end of the day.
                              Every day deserves a little time off.

                                I am not positive this link will work, but Dogger's death notice is in the www.thechronicle.com.au http://www.localclassifieds.com.au/s...%20henry%20fry

                                The family has printed off all of this thread to allow people to read, they would all like to extend their sincere thanks.

                                In lieu of flowers, for those living outside of Australia, a link will be put up for donations to be made to SCI research or care. The family is dedicated to finding a cure.

                                For those in Australia, the family said flowers are fine or in lieu of, a link will be put up here as soon as possible.

                                Now, stop crying in your beers, get out and make a change. (I blame that last bit on jet lag.)
