Thought I would pass this along.

Lee lost his battle with ALS last Saturday, March 17th.

Obituary

Dec. 6, 1967 - Mar. 17, 2012 Henry Leonard Persing Henry Leonard "Lee" Persing of Madison passed away Saturday at a local hospital. He was 44. Henry was a native of Baltimore, Maryland and a resident of Madison County for over 4 years. He was retired from the U.S. Air Force with 20 years of service.

Thank you John. I also considered Lee a friend. I was afraid this was the status since I hadn't heard from him in a while.

Prayers and best wishes to Lee's family.

Very sad. I had sent him some email not long ago and hadn't heard back.
May he rest in peace.

I wonder if they have anyone taking care of his station and website... we, as a group, should maybe see if that's even needed or desired.

I hope someone can pass these on to his family.

I bookmarked the page, it looks like he put a lot of time and effort in making that site, I hope mine looks half as good as that one day

My prayers and thoughts are with him and his family. He was a regular contributor and one that I think everyone on this forum liked.

He will be missed!

ALS is such a cruel disease. I've lost several friends who had it. Very difficult to watch them slowly deteriorate over time.

Dang, sure have to give him credit.  He kept right on going just as long as he possibly could.

Scalphunter,

Thank you for posting this over here.  I did not, because Lee wasn't a member anymore.  My apologies everyone.
