    Holly,
    I am sorrowed and shocked to hear this sad news. My most heartfelt condolences to you and your family, be strong, for him. He will be missed, greatly, but his works and generosity and knowledge will keep his name and SPIRIT alive for as long as there are firearms collectors and by those he touched. A man is remembered not by what or how much he owned at the end of his life, but by what he accomplished during his life and is measured by the number of those who called him friend. God bless you all. His final work WILL be completed.

    It came as a real shock to me when I found out that OUR friend and mentor had passed on. Bill Goforth was one of the most giving individuals I have ever known, and he will be sorely missed. It's said that "knowledge is power", and he empowered us all with his learnings. He and his family will be in my prayers.

    I am sorry for your loss. But I am certain that you have a treasure chest full of great memories that you will never forget, and stick to the promise that you will one day be re-united with him in glory where there is no sorrow and no tears. Your father was known thru out this great country by the knowledge he shared with ANYONE who would seek his expertise, and expert he was. When he answered a question, you could take it to the bank that it was correct. He will be missed. Like shooter said, he was a HUGE part of what made this forum what it is. God bless you thru this difficult time, may you have his peace that passeth all understanding.

    Bill Goforth was a fine man-a very fine man.
    Find solace in this- God has a perfect plan.
    I'm sure I speak for all the members of this forum when I say that if there is any way that we can return some of Bill's daily favors, we are here for you.
    He expressed concern recently in an email that if something were to happen to him, you would be at a loss for what to do with his guns-and he was considering getting rid of them. If you run into problems, ask here and we will be happy to help you.
