This is a repost of some of the comments made by Viktor and from some of those here that knew him.
On the blog Viktor was a serious man with strong convictions, sound ideas and insights.
He was gracious when we disagreed, complimentary when we didn't, and always respectful. One never had a hint that he was seriously ill until the last couple of weeks when Viktor shared with us his final challenge. He handled the challenge in a way that we all wish we can do when our time comes.
I wish his family well in their time of sadness and grief.
Viktor will be missed.
Our acquaintance has been far too short. You have supplied an oasis in the desert. Be certain, you will be remembered.
As you will be, too, my friend.
If at any point you need an ear, you have may personal e-mail account.
That is generous of you, Allen, thank you.
See you on the other side, my friend :D
As long as Sister is not the gatekeeper. :)
Keep fighting the good fight.
It was an Honor, Sir. May God bless you, and your family.
Rufus, you old goat, I never expected to see you here.
As I have said before, my hat is off to any man who has been in a firefight on behalf of his country. I am in your debt, Sir.
The Honor is mine, Rufus.
My best to you.
It was nice of you drop by, MeLoDy. Thank you.
My best to you, also.
What is "Occupation" said:
peace and strength...
Don't let the bastards get you down, WiO.
Deuce said " One of my failings in life has been a quick draw. I should have fought less and listened more." Sage advice, WiO.
...still expect to have you at this year's Bosco Awards at the EB.
Some of your best stuff will be highlighted.
That is what I am afraid of.
