As some of you may know, long time Moderator Al Esgar, (EZZY333) posted in a Christmas thread that he's dealing with a really serious illness.

We just wanted to recognize him, and say thanks for all the time and energy Al has spent on Gun Dog Forum the past decade.

As a moderator, he has spent literally thousands of hours helping fellow gun dog owners with his years of experience. Al is SO passionate about dogs and hunting, and has really done an amazing job for so many years keeping the Forums alive.

The management and moderators sincerely appreciate all the help he's given to members over the years, and wish him the best.

My sincere "Thank you!" to Ezzy, too - he helped me get up and running as a Mod years ago, offered great advice, suggestions, opinions and support, and answered all my questions (even the off-the-wall ones) whenever asked. Over the years I've found him here online virtually every day (and night!) when I've checked in, generously lending his expertise in so many areas. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Ezzy, with gratitude!

Thank you Ezzy for the advice and the frustrations, when I didn't want to accept that I was wrong about something, and always putting the dogs first. Your dedication to the forum and to us is appreciated. Get well soon.

Ezzy -

I want to add my thanks for all you have contributed.

Your knowledge and experience, so freely shared, is a treasured gift to all who have benefitted from it in the past and a true legacy to those who will benefit from it in the future. You have truly paid it forward. Well done my friend.

I posted a quick thank you on another thread when I saw that you had posted, but these new mods were sleeping on the job and didn't make me move it. :lol: Thought I should probably post a proper thank you in the correct location.

Although I don't post as much as some, I have frequented this community for the last eight years and have learned a tremendous amount. I have gained valuable friendships, I am a better dog owner, dog trainer, hunter, communicator and I am as passionate as ever about this hobby. As said before, this is in no small part because of your willingness to share your knowledge and the unique ability to keep ours on track. You found a place where you were able to cast a wide net and reach a lot of people. I am thankful that this wealth of knowledge is documented organized and easily accessible because I reference it often.

It some times amazes me that a group of folks that share the same interests and passion can be in so much disagreement at times, but you have done a heck of a job refereeing.

Thank you

I not only read Ezzy's posts but use the search function to look up his observations and advice when I have a problem or question. Many years of his postings have given us--or me,anyway-- a repository of sensible informed information.

Thank you, Ezzy!

I've always appreciated Ezzy's wisdom, and thought he was a good moderator. I'm most grateful for his service during the Korean War.

Please get well, sir. Praying for you....
