This page is dedicated to those who had led remarkable lives, one way or another, and have since passed on. To the majority that have passed on, we say, "Oh crap, it's thoughts and prayers time, bummer," especially when the individual has gone above and beyond in their life's accomplishments and registered on the PIG radar.
Most led long, productive lives, leaving their footprint on the rest of us.
Others "Pete Rose'd" or "John Belushi'ed" themselves out of existence at an early age by their own hand, personal demons or decadent, overboard behavior. There a rare few to whom we say, “What took you so long?”
Just because we're PIGsters doesn't mean we're not human (sometimes), too. We hate posting on this page, but when a person of note passes on, we thought it proper and respectful, in a PIGish context, to recognize and acknowledge their life's deeds, be it good, bad or ugly.
No matter who makes this page, we say, "Thanks for the memories. Bon Voyage."
