    Some of you may remember Old Goat who used to post here. He died last night in his sleep. He was 92 years old. And he was my friend. Until he was unable, we used to meet at a Starbucks and chat. He was a retired professor of history, tall but underweight. A gentleman.

    Viene, my condolences.

    Was he a coworker in any of your projects?

    He only added to our project by asking pertinent questions and adding insights drawn from his long experience within the Watchtower. He started attending meetings in the mid-1940s and was baptized in 1948. He served in various capacities and 'knew stuff.' I will miss him.

    Sorry to hear of your loss.

    As a lurker I remember reading his posts but never engaged in conversation with him.

    So I know he would have helped other lurkers too.
