Specialx1 passed away Sunday morning.  He was my best friend and mentor.  For those of us who knew him, we will ride with a broken heart, and for those of you who never had the privilege, now you know why it feels a little colder and darker today.

His absence leaves a BIG damn hole, but I know he's riding where there are no speed traps, no fuel stops and no traffic.   




RIP

Hardley, while we have kind words for Luther and his family, you should also know you are in our thoughts also--he was lucky to have a good friend like you.  Good to know he had a good brother while he was here.  Bless you, man.  Prayers for you, too.

Specialx1 was one of the good guys and truly "Special". We all benefited by his presence and humor. HTT is just a site that facilitates communication between members, it's the people like Special that made it great.

Special, I'm glad to have known you! You will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

I regret I never got to meet Luther. We PM'd often and he was always willing to help here at HTT and add a fun flair to the place. Best wishes to his family. He will be missed.

Just few thoughts I have for this tragic turn.  I always loved reading specialx1 replies.  They were sometimes fun to read and other times down right from the heart.  To me he was one of the best on here even though I never got to meet him, I feel in a way I did.  I'm not sure how he came up with his nickname on here.  I truly believe he never thought of himself as "special".   Maybe some of his closer friends can help us with this.
 May God be with you and your family at this time.  Sadly, R.I.P. :sad:  Glen

That's a decision that the admin's will have to make.
PS:
That was a great post you did. I think we all agree with you 100%. He will certainly be missed.

Maybe Earls Place should be renamed Specialx1's Place.  That way he will always live on here at HTT.

He told me once that his name here came from his first email address years ago when he thought of himself as the #1 fan of Special Export beer, also nicknamed Specialx in this part of the country.  I like to think that it meant x-tra special 1.

My condolences to all the family and friends of specialx1. I always enjoyed reading his posts. Truly a loss for all. I agree that the "Shed" should be renamed for him. :sad:
