    Thank you for sharing this. he is going to be missed for sure by me and others. if there is anything we can do for Terry to honor his memory or help her please let me know.

    "Kevin, you will be missed. you will however be remembered by many people that appreciated your efforts in bringing us together. thank you for all you have given to this community my friend. I consider it a privilege to have shared the laughs together we did both on WB and over the phone. I regret I did not get to meet you face to face. Goodbye my friend."

    I'm still reeling from this news, and I'm fairly certain it hasn't really sunk in yet... I'm sure I'll have more coherent thoughts at some point, but even now, I know that my life is better for having known Kevin. I'm going to miss his wit and that mischievous grin...

    Very sorry to hear. From the short time I've "known" Kevin only through posts & comments on Wood Barter I consider him a gem of a person. Kevin, your wit and wisdom will be truly missed...

    There are things in life I will regret.

    Getting to know Kevin Jaynes and his support for everyone here at Woodbarter both personal and as a woodworker will not be one of them.

    We may not have met in person but I am proud to call you a friend and will miss you.

    I'm heartbroken. This "imaginary friend" of mine is gone. Talking to him over the phone made him real. Reading his posts, and seeing all his pictures and listening to the music he loved, trying to get a feel for what he likes. I'm going to miss you Kevin.
    Terry, my heart aches for you....

    I don't know even have words to say right now. We've talked on the phone many times, hung out at SWAT. I considered him my friend, both here and in real life. My heart hurts right now, I can't imagine how Terry and the rest of his family feels. Terry, if you need anything, I think I can speak for all of us here that we will do anything within our power for you. Tony

    I am so sorry, Terry. You are in my thoughts and prayers tonight and in the days and weeks to come. As are all of you who call Kevin family or friend. I am stunned.

    Tony just called me and told me the news... I am shocked and deeply saddened. I keep trying to put my thoughts into words, but I'm not sure how to do that with this. This is a huge loss. My heart breaks for Terry.

    Guys, this really is a shock. Like so many of us, Kevin and I shared enough to know we are the same vintage, so this unexpected news really hits home.
    I feel for Terry and all who knew and respected this tough ol Irishman as much as I did. We aren't nearly as invincible as we'd like.
    I know this much, there's no equals when it comes to putting together a site and creating such a sense of community, and selfishly I hope it will endure beyond the man.
    Mods...if I can help in anyway, please let me know.
    Godspeed and prayers.

    Terry, thoughts prayers and deepest condolences. You should know by reading all that has and will be said that Kevin was deeply respected, loved and admired by so many. It was always clear that regardless of the sometimes rough edges, what meant the most was his family.

    How is it that life ends so suddenly, and then the memory of a man is all that is left to cling to?
    How amazingly generous and deeply committed to his forum family Kevin was.
    And whoever was new, they immediately were welcomed into the fold.

    I was fortunate to get to know Kevin through many conversations. I had found a new friend who disappeared all too soon. And I'm sure we can all say that whether we new him briefly or a long time.

    My deepest sympathies Terry, to you and your entire family.

    We all feel your loss - it is our loss to. Over the coming months and years, know that we can be called upon to help in whatever way we can. My family's and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Mark
