10 years ago today...
« on: June 02, 2006, 01:41:20 PM »
we lost Ray Combs.

I can't believe that it's been 10 years since his tragic suicide.  I think we should all have a few moments of silence in his honor today.

Thanks for all the great memories you gave us over the years, Ray... wherever you are.

*silence*
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

Wow, I can't believe it was that long ago. And he did it on his wife's birthday. Quite shocking, and depressing.

Wow, has it really been ten years?

Thanks for all the memories and laughs, Ray. You are still missed.

I can't believe I had never really noticed which day Ray Combs had died. I guess because my mind is on someone else who left this world on June 2 - and way too damned soon as well.

I hope you are finally at peace, Ray.
In loving and eternal memory of a truly beautiful goddess.

I have to say I can't believe it has been 10 years, what a great host we lost. I think he would have got a 2nd chance to host Feud if he were still here. RIP Ray.

I didn't know about Ray Combs's death until a few weeks after the fact, and I felt so sad when I found out about it.  I remember being shocked when I heard it was a suicide.  

Ray was the best FF host.  His sense of humor and comedic timing brought so much to the show.  RIP.

Ray Combs left us too soon and he was definetly too young to die.

His hosting duties on "Family Feud" were his own special and funny way that kept a true classic alive and made it more enjoyable.

We miss you Ray and God Bless.

I echo the sentiments felt here.  Ray Combs was the consummate "Feud" host.  I was shocked when we lost him.  I'm convinced that they'd have brought him back for the revival over Louie Anderson.  In pace requiescat.
