The Passing of the torch: Bill Abell of Avalanche passed away

Help join with me in honoring Mr. Bill Abell, one of my former team mates who passed this last weekend to that big 10 man woodsball field in the cosmos. Bill was with me when we turned pro in Pittsburgh so many years ago. His passing is just the first of many to follow, most likely me in a few years. I wanted to say that we are truely all blessed and are one big family, paintball is just that way and i would not have it any other way, so remember the good times if you were lucky enough to know Bill and if you did not then i'm sorry but it was your lose. We should bring heaven to this planet each and everyday and if we can work together and honor the fallen before us, i am sure we can accomplish anything. We from team Avalanche salute you Bill and i'll be joining you soon enough. Lets build the future to what we all dream it can be.

RIP mr. Abell, your passing shouldn't be a loss but an inspiration for us all to just continue to live even stronger and marking people in your name.

A big shout to mr. Abell's family, may you guys have a peaceful life.

Literally took off my hat.

I usually never take my hat off when I'm online.

I hope he got to take some of his gear with him to the next dimension.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
