    Oh no! This makes me so sad... Meyer was such a positive, informative, constant source of support here. He has hinted at some health problems in the past - I'm so sorry to know that we will no longer have the benefit of his great knowledge and experience.

    RIP @Meyer Jordan

    this is very sad news; I know I'll miss him and his educational posts. A lot of people here on gpf have greatly benefitted from his calm, even demeanor when trying to solve pond issues and relaying his exhaustive wealth of knowledge. Very sad.

    That is sad, I always enjoyed reading what Meyer had to say.
    Could somebody copy and paste what it says on that facebook page about his passing, I am in China right now and China bans half the internet sites, including Facebook, Google, youtube, and the majority of websites I frequently visit?
    Meyer's last post was just a few days ago https://www.gardenpondforum.com/threads/making-a-pump-biofilter-in-one.22567/#post-366056

    Oh no , that was so sudden - I just read his pots couple days ago and marvelled
    at his gentle understatement style , straightforward logic and vast knowledge.
    I'm really shocked.
    Can somebody post more details - I do not have a Facebook account.

    When Meyer spoke, people listened. His vast knowledge and unpretentious style are what I will remember most. I always welcomed and appreciated his authoritative advice. May God rest his soul.

    So very sad- Meyer was the go-to guy for fish problems. A true wealth of useful information. He will be greatly missed.

    Oh my, so sad to hear. Meyer was so helpful to me over the last couple of years as I planned and built my pond.

    I am so sorry to hear this. He was always so helpful. He always had advice and didn't make you feel like an idiot for asking.

    Agreed. Any time people had questions, especially people new to ponds, he was always one of the first to answer.

    I am relatively new to this group. I have grow to respect and admire meyer a great deal even with what he has taught us i file it away for future info when it applies to me.

    I shall miss his insight and wealth of knowledge. I know the rest of us knowing or not knowing shall carry his knowledge on with our ponds and our life.

    He may not be with us but he will be with us.
