    For those who remember the great divide and who have been members of the Kitco...

    I was reading over at the 'other' site and read that PONCE has transitioned.
    Although I did not share all of his beliefs, I did and do appreciate his thoughts and writings and will always remember his quote.
    "IF YOU DON'T HOLD IT, YOU DON'T OWN IT!"
    May he rest in peace.

    Also, another wise and great PM forum member has passed away.
    AgStacker
    He was banned from the 'K 'and started his own forum. PMs remained the pure topic of the forum and much was taught and learned under his tutelage!

    We have lost some interesting and great leaders in the PM forum community.
    I wish their families the best!

    2016 has been a very 'sad' year indeed!

    Full of life/ Interesting bloke who won a lot of battles except that last battle we all get to face.

    Not sure of his personal beliefs, hmmmmm, but his strength of character is worthy of a brief Orthodox eulogy:



    We travel between the eternities / RIP Ponce​

    Yeah, it's a bummer to hear of the folks that have left us over time. One of the best things about a forum is the anonymity of its characters. We take on a different identity and it's how we keep it real! Thanks to all that are still with us, and thanks to those that have passed. Rip

    hahahaha, we need some new quotes.

    Question: "Outside of that, what do you have?"

    The proper quick wit gimmer response, "A .12~gauge pistol grip Mossberg and the GPS for your house."

    Hence our new quote, "IF I HOLD IT, YOU DON'T OWN IT." :D

    That's teamwork boys. "TRUMP 'EM if they don't like it." Yeah... This is a new era fer all of us. I ken feel it.

    You do have something you can take with you forever,. Shootist

    You have like minded friends and you don't have to hide em like you do the gold/silver.

    Pretty unique man!

    From the site posted above:
    "Ronnie, You promised me you would live forever! Now all that remains is 'Il Silenzio' --fresh like yesterday, sharp as glass".



    Can't watch this one without shedding a tear:




    To lighten it back up a bit....what she really meant to say....

    Ronnie, You promised me you would live forever! Now all that remains are memories, that damn pile of TP, the van load of nickels and the ruts in the lawn.

    I've always said, my kids love the fact they just call and we go to the storage building and get what they need AND one day when I am no longer here, they will hate me for the stuff that I left behind and they will have to deal with.

    I always remember he claimed to be the 16th great grandson of de Leon, but wait, his actual name in real life was Ponce de Leon? That's pretty damn cool.
    RIP my friend! Not gay or anything but you were a handsome devil ta' boot.

    Notice on Ponce’s tombstone that his middle name initial is R; that stands for Reltih. An odd middle name, to say the least. But there is a story here that few know.



    Years ago Ponce told me how he got that middle name. The year was 1940 when the war was raging in Europe and we in the United States hadn’t yet directly gotten involved, it came some 18 months later with the Pearl Harbor sneak attack. Ponce’s father was closely associated with a German coronel posted at the German embassy in Cuba. Ponce’s father was an engineer and had written a book which was really a manual for maintenance for all of the equipment in the sugar mills throughout Cuba. I saw a copy of the book which unfortunately was lost in the fire. Ponce’s family lived in a neighborhood that included ambassadors and higher priority members of Cuban society.



    Ponce’s father was led to believe that the Nazis would take over the world and therefore everyone would be subjugated under the swastika banner. So it was decided to have Ponce’s middle name be Reltih which is Hitler spelled backwards. This was in order to offer some possible future protection for this new baby boy in the Ponce DeLeon family.

    I’ll have more to share about Ponce if you want to hear them; nothing I can document but in keeping with his epitaph, “lived life on his own terms.”

    Another quote of Ponce’s is “To be ready is not.”



    Best wishes,

    Agnut

    "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success. "
