    Default The saddest of News Today

    It is with deepest regrets that I have to inform all here that our good Friend and comrade Lou Barron has passed away!
    I received a PM from his Family asking me to post the following!

    Hi Vernon
    We are trying to post a new message on the website for the members to let everyone know that our Dad passed away today. Can you please post the message below on the website and let us know how we can read the message as we do have Dad's log in details.

    With great sadness the Barron family wish to inform all members that the passing of a dedicated member of the Merchant Navy Lou Barron passed away after a short illness on the 29th May 2015.

    Kind Regards
    The Barron Family

    My Heart is so sad Today after awakening to this terrible news~
    I am to say the least in complete shock!
    My very Sincere Condolences to all the Immediate Family of Lou!
    You were a good Friend to me Lou and I will never forget you.
    Rest in Peace my Friend,and may you have calm Waters to take you back to the places you loved so much!
    With deepest respect to a true Gentleman,and Friend
    Sincerely

    I dont really know what to say except how sorry I am. Lou was a great and loyal member of this site and a member of a breed of men and women who sailed under the Red Duster in the greatest years of the British Merchant Navy. His death is a very sad loss not only to his family but to all his mates who remain and who valued his friendship and character. Please convey my sorrow at his passing to his family and friends and although gone from our view I doubt very much that Lou Barron will ever be very far from our thoughts and memories. RIP my friend may calm seas and fair winds be your reward for a life well lived and for the love and pleasures you have given to all. Chris.
