Default 3FC Member FresnoBeeDude passes

I am sad to say that FresnoBeeDude has passed. He didn't post that much recently, but his story was one of success.

This is a link to his story. http://www.hanfordsentinel.com/artic...0723518966.txt

When he passed last weekend, he was training for a triathlon. He kept living his dream.

The Secret is: CONSISTENCY

Well, it has not been a good week for 3fc, has it? I am very sorry to hear this. FresnoBeeDude is one of the people I looked to for inspiration when my own would fail me. He truly showed the world what amazing things could be accomplished with determination. My sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.

Oh how sad. I am shocked.

I am terribly disturbed and deeply saddened by this news. It just seems so incredibly - sad. And unfair. And, oh and a million other things....

May he rest in peace. My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.

Oh no! This is horrible news. He hasn't been around in a while, but he was such an inspiration for everyone.

I remember him well from last year when I was trying to find my way. I spent days reading his myspace blog and was truely amazed! He was such an inspiration to me, and I have thought about his story quite a bit over the past year and a half. Steven was awesome, and will be missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
