Hi Lou,
So sorry to hear of your loss.
I for one, miss you here at the forum, both for the fantastic work you've done for us all, and your brilliant sense of humour.
Bring them both back soon.

Our thoughts are with you.

Lou,
Life intrudes on our passions. Yet our passions are the roots of our lives. They are inextricably intertwined. We are just constantly forced to recognize and organize the importance of one over the other. The order in which they must be organized is rarely our choice...

Lou, so sorry for the loss. No words could ever express or explain the pain of loss. I hope you are well, and wish you the deepest condolences during this time.

Take care, we'll leave the light on for ya... just don't stay away too long.... you're important to us... come back when things feel better.

Sorry to read of your bad news, Lou. Hope to see you back here as soon as life and your loss allow.

Oh that I was back in the dear old PBI.
With no more Triplanes on me tail, nor tracer tracing by.
And no more flames and clickerty-clack and no more blooming sky,
And only a couple of feet to fall whenever I want to die.

Sorry to hear about your loss, Lou.
This forum without you is kinda empty.
I wish you all the best.

Lou, so very very sorry for your loss my friend. I echo James' sentiments - there's nothing one can say to express the pain of loss. Just know that we are here for you, and we will be waiting for you when you feel ready to come back. You are incredibly important to us here.

I want to sincerely thank you all for your kind thoughts and heartfelt concerns. This is a rough one for me. My brother Scott was two years my younger and we spent every day together as kids, going to school, heading out on our childhood adventures, sharing our dreams and secrets. Our interests were nearly identical and I will miss him dearly. Apart from my mother there is not another person living who I have known longer. I hope to get back into the swing of things here again in the not-too-distant future but right now my plate is just too full. Added to a busy work schedule, I and my youngest brother Wayne have been making numerous eight-hour round trips up to Scott's home to secure his personal belongings and to do an inventory of the estate. He left no will or instructions as to what to do with his many, many, many things so we are now entering into a long probate process. Suffice to say my days are very full. Thank God for Jane, my wife, who has volunteered to act as personal administrator of Scott's estate, taking on the lion's share of that task. She's a saint.

Thank you again to everyone for your support and kindness, it means more than you will ever know. Live life to the fullest my friends, it can end in the blink of an eye.

Lou

Lou, wonderful to hear from you.

Please know how much you are missed here, and that we're all with you and family. It's a process, like crossing a dark, cold river with a tangle of brush underfoot beneath the surface. There is nothing to do but stay resolute and push on. The sun's out and it's warm on the far bank.

My sincere thanks again to all of you for your kind posts and emails. I am "over the hump" and moving on, with so many wonderful memories of my brother that visit me every day. I shall miss him dearly but as has been told and retold by folks much better with words than I, those who have loved and been loved are never really gone. Take each day as the gift it truly is my friends and carry as many of the good memories with you as you possibly can.

Lou

Raine said it so well in his post here, but I would like to add that your friends, good memories and better times await you on the far side of that stream and you are so close you can reach out and grab our hands. You have been so missed.

So glad to see your post here!

Thanks Robert, and I agree completely and Raine was one of the folks I had at the forefront when I spoke of those being better with words. That imagery of the sun and warmth on the far bank --- pure poetry.

A belated welcome back, Lou. Everyone here missed your wise counsel and your rapier-like wit! Oh, and the Tullamore! Can't forget the Tullamore (and other assorted adult beverages).

I hope, at least in some sense, that reading some of the adventures of Carrick, Robert, Raine, Mayfair, and Fullofit (and many others), was a bit of comfort to you during this difficult time. If not, you have a lot of catching-up to do!

Welcome back Lou I cannot know what you must feel, but you have made your way through the darkness, and now see your brother can never be truly taken from you as long as you carry him within your spirit. About you not being good with words, I oratorically deny that! I have read to many of your fine stories and sincere feelings to other members in times of sorrow. I have read many of fine comments that you have written over the years here. So do not sell yourself short when it comes to expressing feeling with the written word, because you sir are a master. Your talents are in many fields, but I have always enjoyed your writings as much as anything else you have done. I wish you nothing but clear skies and a good tailwinds for the duration.
John
