Remembering Howie

Howie Epstein was very cool to me.  I can't believe it's been 12 years without his smile, musicianship and harmonies.

I started gonegator.com in 1999 and  I believe it was sometime in 2000 when I befriended Howie Epstein through a mutual friend.  I remember him calling and saying "I'm going to send you some Polaroids off my refrigerator, but I want them back!  You can scan them and put them on gonegator if ya want."  HELL YEAH I wanted!  So Howie sent me a bunch of pictures and a tshirt from Tom's 50th birthday.  In hind sight, I wish I had scanned them at a higher resolution.

Howie really helped gonegator.com gain a bunch of loyal users and fans.  As you could only see these pictures on gonegator.com at the time.

When Howie passed I had other friends of his call and send me some more pictures.  I also got a call from USA Today wanting to publish a link.  And although just a blurb, it got the site looked at by WAY more people.

Thank you Howie, you are loved and missed!
