From another [ham radio] world, Old timers who had passed away would get described and honoured in the "Silent [Morse code] Key" on some appropriate forum.



Nowadays, many of the good ol' banjo heroes (Earl Scruggs, Don Reno, Wade Ward, Stanley etc.) have passed on and it would be a wonderful token of appreciation and "thank-you" if they could be acknowledged for their awesome contributions to our banjo passion in their own "Silent Banjo" forum.



Not much to ask but a whole lot of "thank yous" for the amazing banjo pleasures you have treated us on for so many, many years!



If such a Hangout forum would/could be created then I would love to nominate Ron Horton of Burlington, Ontario Canada.



It would be a great way to honour our banjo-heros of yore.

We don't have a specific forum for those who have passed, but in other banjo related forum we do have stickies for some of those people where we put an URL in any time there's any new information posted about them.

True, we refer the Operators that have passed as , Silent Keys..

I was asking/suggesting if we could have a forum specifically for this purpose and that Silent Banjo might be a good name for it.

If there was enough interest, Eric might take note of it, but without that, I doubt one would be forthcoming.

In magic we call it a broken wand.

I would be interested, if Eric cares.

Would it be feasible to have two "sections" 



a)  BHO members who have gone to the big jam in the sky [i.e. their member profiles would be moved over when BHO is notified of their deaths, and



b) those who people want to honor/thank/give kudos [regardless of BHO status/membership].... like Bart's suggestion, I presume.



... just thinkin' out loud.
