MrHemi's last post...

After more than ten years with, the time has come for me to move on. When Andy & Janet took over as managers for HTC last year, I promised to remain on board for a year or so to ensure a smooth transition for them - and to assist with our members adjusting to the new forum. That phase is complete, so it's time for me to leave.

I wish I could have been on here more, but quite a few life-changing events have occurred since October of last year that prevented that. The loss of my Mom, the loss of my job, the loss of the truck, the sale of our house while upside-down... just to name a few issues. The four month period of watching my Mom's health deteriorate was pretty rough. I wouldn't wish that scenario on my worst enemy. The silver lining was that Peg and I were by her bedside every day until she passed away.

Peg and I have overcome most of the bad stuff and we now have a pretty good outlook on life. I've declared myself retired (sounds better than unemployed) - and we've moved to western North Carolina near the Great Smoky mountains.

I want to thank the HTC managers and the board of directors for keeping the forum alive. I also want to thank all the members who make HTC a part of their daily routine. It is members like you that make HTC a special place to be.

I know it's been slow here for the last several months - hopefully things will turn around and HTC will be the "go to" place once again.

You all take care - and be safe

Best wishes to you and Peg, Mark. In my short time here I've enjoyed the tremendous information and friendship on this site. And hey I'm only a stone's throw away from WNC, if you ever come down this way we might run into each other.

Mark, so sorry to hear of all those set backs. Glad to hear things are turning around for you and Peg.

That said, I thank you for all you've done to bring this group of HEMI's together. Under your leadership, we've become a family of great folks with more in common than just our vehicles.

Carol and I wish you both all the best in the future.

Sir...I salute you.

Thanks for all you have done through the years to make this a great club and something I am very proud to be a part of. The best to you and Peg. I will miss you both.
Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.

As wordy as I usually am I don't really know what to say. It all started out being about our trucks, but turned into a family I have been proud to be associated with. You have made many friends here that will always remember you and the opportunity you brought to us all. We can only wish you our very best and remind you that you and Peg are part of our family and we hope to her from you again soon.
You know you will hear from me from time to time. I'm worse than an old mother hen checking on her chicks. Be sure to let us know if you head out west around Christmas.
Take care my friend, and give Peg a big hug.

This site, group, forum, friends, family or what ever you want to call it would not have been the same with out you. I hope that the next few years are a lot better for you than the past year. You know we are a family here and once you are apart of it you can't just up and leave it. You will have to keep checking in if nothing else to say HI. Good luck in your future adventures. We will keep the site going and keep what you help to grow, grow even bigger.

Has been a great journey with you my friend, stay in touch,
