Default Discs on the roof - players no longer with us.

Is there a section here for "memorials" of sorts about friends/fellow disc golfers who have passed on? A place where memories can reside about the best part of this sport - the people we spend time with tossing plastic? Someone wrote something about when one of us passes on, it's like another Frisbee tossed on the roof, not to be played with again for a while...

Maybe the focus of this site being on courses rather than players makes any kind of "memorial page" not really applicable here, but I thought I would ask. Thank you. - Mike O.

I do not think there is a single thread. There are a small handful of individual threads about specific players, but no large memorial page.
