RIP Bill G. (1 Viewer)


Nov 3, 2009
I only hung out with bill for a total of 4 days just about a month ago in portland, but i didnt take long for me too see how sweet of a guy he was or how bright or energetic he was. made alot of memories with him in just 4 days, and im not gonna forget them. currently our freind sarah has his dog, sequoia, and im going to be helping her get sequoia back to bills family in new jersey, where he was originally from. he was riding a suicide well, south out of eugene and apparently fell near oakridge oregon, between kfalls and eugene.

im still lookin for a picture of him.

he was the best friend anyone could have ever had. knew him for 12 years, we were together on the road for about 3 years. not a fucking hour goes by where i don't think of him. his spirit is with me forever. i'm going to be putting some of his ashes in a memorial tattoo pretty soon. it doesn't stop hurting ever, time just numbs the ache...

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
