I am sad to have received this earlier today.
Hello,I am a good friend of one of your web followers at bamboo web. Mike Bouton, I am unsure of his user name on this web site, passed away last night due to complications with a broken shoulder. I wanted to let you know and maybe you could some how alert some of your users and maybe set up some sort of tribute post in the forums or something. Very sad day, could not have happened to a better person. He had a huge heart and absolutely loved his bamboo. Thanks, I hope you can do something in memory of him. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me!
Mike (AKA mr.mike) was a long time forum poster and contributor to the photo database.
We exchanged a number of emails over the years and he will be missed.
