I can't believe it's been two years ago today that we lost Chris "G-Man" Hatswell. I still miss him every day, and even more as the Baker's show gets closer. My "G-Man memorial dash plates are mounted inside all of my vehicles so I see him no matter what car I'm driving. Rest In Peace Chris! We know you'll be looking over us at Baker's again this year. You will always be there with us!

I'm a couple days late with my post, but I can't believe he's been gone 3 years already. But he's only been gone physically. I think about him all the time, and especially this time of year as I prepare for the Baker's Van Show. I texted Teresa, Chris' widow, on May 5th as I do every year. I try to stay in contact with his family and let them know how much we all still think of him and miss him. Teresa said she was especially missing his smile and his laugh, especially on Friday. So we both agreed to add in a few extra smiles and laughs as we think of Chris. He could smile and laugh and brighten up anyone's day. RIP G-Man. Miss you Buddy!
(And great pic Joe. Can you text or email that pic? Thanks.)

Just wanted to say how moved I've been recently by all the wonderful acknowledgements you guys have given to Chris "GMan" Hatswell. Chris passed just shortly after I joined VV. Early on I could tell what a powerful and positive roll he played here on VV. Although he wasn't around long for me to get to know him, it's very obvious he touched you oldtimers. I just feel that there's no greater tribute to a person than to keep their memory alive. I'm sure his family would be proud.
This is something about this forum that I find refreshing----the friendship and comradery this forum provides is somewhat different than most of the other car forums offer.

Thumbs up to you guys that keep the forum running and it's members in your thoughts.
