RIP - Very sad news
I think it should be a sticky for a week, so others find out the sad news, and can pay their respects.MODS
Can we put this into the Gold threads, please? Its not a masterpiece like some of those in Gold but it will create some sort of memorial for one of our best (if not the best) poster.
As time goes on, we have now lost a few significant board members.I think it should be a sticky for a week, so others find out the sad news, and can pay their respects.
I agree, but people don't seem to be keen on cyber-mourning, as I discovered this morning.As time goes on, we have now lost a few significant board members.
I would like to see threads like these receive a sticky for a week, before being moved to an 'In memoriam' section.
Great post Corvus.I was away for the weekend and didn't have any news of Sean's passing until I turned on my computer yesterday evening and saw the thread that Andy originated on here, Andy had also sent me an e-mail on Sunday. I later learned that Sean's best marra, George, had tried to contact me on Sunday.
I was very upset last night and didn't feel like adding to this thread then.
Sean Hewitson was a marra of mine, not a close one, but a marra none the less. For a few seasons now I have met up with Sean, George and Andy (prior to last season when he had to give up his ST) for pre-match and half time craic about footy, music, politics and the world in general.
Sean was an intelligent guy with a wonderful, wicked sense of humour, well informed and a very warm human being. I've already missed his company this season, although messages have to'd and fro'd via George, now I'm just missing him. Sean was very positive for a long time about overcoming his illness and his attitude throughout was so very brave, but alas it was just not to be.
Fare thee well, marra, it was a privilege to know you.
