    We've never done anything like this before so hopefully it goes off without any hitches ...

    Please help up as at noon CST as we honor LONGHORNREALTOR (Jeff Dillard) with a five-minute moment of silence. The board will be closed for a few minutes so no new posts can be made.

    We may not be able to shut down the mobile/app, so please work with us in observing the moment of silence starting at noon to try to ensure that we can honor our friend and a beloved OB member.

    Great show of support and respect for such a great Longhorn. Unfortunately, I never met Jeff but always enjoyed his contributions to this board and also his time and commitment to the Longhorn community in so many ways. Rest in peace.

    Everytime I called Jeff he answered. Everytime he was a joker and very happy. I'll miss that dude. I have him a set of Longhorn BBQ utensils years ago and he was very greatful. He made me feel good. RIP my friend.

    You know I was thinking the other day, and maybe it's excessive or a little corny although I don't think so, but what if we could honor LHRs handle permanently in some way? Maybe like on the 40 acres homepage above where it says who's signed on, you could just put Jeff's handle alone by itself as if he's always logged in. Again, this gesture is awesome in and of itself I was just thinking about that the other day.

    Ready and will actually spend the time in prayer for Linda and his family.

    Then, going to treat my family to some BBQ in his honor for lunch.

    Can Rivals "retire" the handle. Not too unique to possibly come back into circulation one day.

    Hats off to the OB family for participating in this. Jeff was a truly class person and my sympathies to Linda and family for their loss.

    One last Hook 'em to a great Longhorn!

    We observed the moment of silence here at our home in Corpus with the picture Hornius provided projected through the Apple TV to the big screen. After the 5 minutes concluded, we got our horns up and played the eyes of Texas. We will miss you Jeff.

    FYI, this was the first time something like this has been done for anybody on the entire Rivals.com network.

    I'm proud that we were able to do it for someone who has meant so much to this community. RIP Jeff. You will be missed.
