This year we lost a person who not only loved Airguns and airgunners dearly but she was also a very nice person and instrumental in establishing an internet presence for airgunners.

Edith Gaylord together with her gentleman husband Tom Gaylord, devoted hours and hours of their personal time to bring us the original Airgun Letter Forum, a very popular hangout place almost a couple of decades ago. I made a lot of friends with the common interest of airgunning there. Edith was quick and very polite answering our emails and addressing our questions. A truly lovely woman and we don't have many in our sport. The Airgun Letter was another major contribution I looked forward to receiving in the mail. Back in those days, Edith's dedication to this sport was huge in making us who we are today.

So today, to honor Edith's memory, The Yellow Forum names her Airgun Pesron of the Year. I am sure she smiles down at us.

Well-chosen: Edith did a lot for all of us in the nascent days of airguns on the Internet, and beyond as well.

...at a time when I was returning to airguns. I left the hobby when I pursued other things in life and deployment too.

Edith and Tom made a mark on my life's airgunning experience and learning. I thank them both.

It is 1/1/2016, and I just finished reading the entry by Steve about Edith as Airgun Person of the Year. Marvelous choice. It's been a long time since I teared-up reading a bio, but B.B.'s tribute to Edith "did me in". What a great story, and a remarkable woman.
Happy New Year to all on the YF, and a special thanks to Steve for maintaining this terrific venue.

Edith is the perfect choice. She gave a lot to the sport - she and Tom really showed a lot of courage and willingness to share even the hard facts as her health turned downward. Thanks YF for holding up her memory.
