    #1.. Cappy like you I was not on the site when Rob died , but was told by a mutual friend later who supplied me with his daughters email address , so sent my belated condolences , which I was told were gratefully received. He is a big miss on this site as will be a large loss to his family. He was a very level headed man with morals who was always after the truth be it good or bad. he will still be missed sorely by many. regards John S

    A bit late in reply here but although i do recall poor Robs passing, i for the life of me cannot remember when it was, and i cannot find a Posting (Besides this Thread) telling of this happening.
    Would have thought that it would have been amongst the Crossed the Bar Threads!? Unless i am missing it somehow~
    But yes cappy it is sad news as so many others have gone from this great site, and will be sorely missed for their contributions. Folk like Alf, Lou, Jim, Sid and a few good others too. Not of course forgetting the great Reg Kear our mate and Poet of Wonderous Lines! I still have the Book he so kindly sent t me Free of his Poems ,a great keepsake.
    So with Respect may i once again say , you were all good Men on here with us, we enjoyed your Tales and Company, and are sad of the losses . May you one and ALL rest in peace and stay in calm Waters.

    Hi Cappy.
    Sorry to hear the sad news of Rob's passing, I used to look forward to his posts,sad realy as they say "Age Shall Not Weary Them." This post comes the day after I got news of my older brothers passing, this on top of my younger brother and older sister's passing in the last six months, leaving me the last one standing.
    Cheers Des
