MerrimackForum.org's First Hosting Company

Postby Brian McCarthy » Thu Oct 28, 2010 12:29 pm

Back when merrimackforum.org was being put together by Nat, someone down in Florida somehow heard the cry of the Town run forum going off line and offered to host the site.

That person was Walter Billings. Because of that he picked up several accounts from people in Town, including myself. Several years ago, he got away from hosting and we had to move. I kept in touch with him once in a while since then but my last email several months ago went unanswered. I found out why.

Walter passed away unexpectedly.

Nice guy, never met him personally, only through email but he understood what helping people out can do for your self.

Just thought a little note here was appropriate.

Thanks Brian. If you ever find an address for the Billings family, please post it. A nice little note to his family telling them that he was appreciated by a group of strangers 1000 miles away might be a bright spot in their sad time.
