Well this is just tragic.. Like many of you, I had suspected that something bad had happened to Kosty and I feared the worst. Reading through the obituary, I have zero doubt this is Kosty as both of us had shared history about our military history including Air Assault and Ranger training.
I know throughout the years many of us have disagreed with Kosty but I have to say the man was a true gentleman through thick or thin. Never one to hold grudges, even when personally and blatantly attacked, he would just move forward and always seem to have a positive outlook. Few people are built this way and I really wish Kosty was someone I knew outside an Internet forum. As I suspect he was the type of friend who was selfless, and would give you the shirt off his back.
I am 100% convinced that Kosty is somewhere right now watching a good movie in hidef with the ones he loved.
He really will be missed, and my heart goes out to his family.
