      Rudy became a dear friend. It was in the early days of Koiphen when I got a call asking about starting a koi pond. It turned out to me a large tank. He had it in his garage but I don't remember how much volume it held. It was in the 1,000s of gallons. We discussed it for several days and I made my recommendations for pump and filter. He bought the supplies from me and set it up.

      I suggested he join the Koiphen forum, but he declined. As our friendship grew we spoke a lot on the phone. In those days I worked into the wee hours of the morning and that is the times he would call. I continued to encourage him to join Koiphen and he finally did. Of course he was an immediate hit as I knew he would be.

      One of my favorite memories is when he came to the farm for my main pond harvest. Here is a photo of him carrying my Ochiba, Babe from the mud pond to the holding tanks.Name:  rudy_babe_10_2007.jpg

      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      He always had something funny too say
      "most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song
      still in them."
      I wish I could sing

      OK.TN.

      I come back and read his posts, he was a one of a kind. I will never forget Steve and Linda stepping in to take care of him.

      Rudy, I know you never left. You are watching from Heaven and wearing the angels out.

      He was one of a kind. I miss him too. Steve and Linda went above and beyond in his last times. Thank you for taking care of him until the end. I am glad I got a chance to see him and meet you both. Hard to believe is has been so long already
