Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve,

You probably wont read these posts for a very long time (if ever), but hopefully seeing the number of replies in this thread will buoy your spirit and give you some solace in that knowledge. I tear up just thinking of your loss and can't imagine your grief. Just know that your brother and sister sailors are here and with you in thought. Speaking for myself and I'm sure everyone else here, if there's anything I can do or any load I help you carry just say the word.

My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Steve- I've not been active here for a long time, but felt I needed to log-in to express my deepest condolences on your loss. Please continue to cherish your children. I know they will need you as much or more then you need them right now and going forward. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve --

I have made many friends through Sailnet, though we have never met or spoken. You are certainly one of those friends, and one of my friends has suffered an immeasurable loss. My thoughts are with you and the boys and I wish you the best in trying to pull your life together.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

I just saw over on Sailing Anarchy that a scholarship fund has been established to help Smack's boys to continue their schooling.

I wanted to repost here to spread the word.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Despite everything SmackDaddy is going though, he still managed to send me the BFS gear I ordered a few days before the bad news broke here on SN. I PM'ed him and told him that he could keep the money but he still was able to find the time to send out the BFS gear.

Thanks Smack. I'll wear it with pride.

Here its some of the gear, being modeled by "Demon" the ship's cat.

Smack, I might be having my first BFS next week. If I do, you and your family will be on my mind.
