Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

I have not been paying much attention to Sailnet lately. Prayers up for Smackdaddy and family. This too shall pass.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Hey Steve, I know we have had our differences of opinion over various topics; but just wanted to say that I am very sorry to hear of your loss also. I just saw this thread as I have been away from the forum for several months; and while I know your grieving is far from over I hope that there is some light showing at the end of this tunnel of darkness for you, and your family.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Terrible. I have seen Smacks post for over two years. He is a beacon on this forum. I am so sorry for your loss, especially for your children. I will include you in my prayers tonight.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smack,
It is hard to even think about what you have faced; it is harder to find any words that offer any solace; but the hardest part is what you have to do; to carry on, for the boys, for yourself, for her. You are doing that and for that you should be proud. I believe and pray that your strength will carry you all thru this and the bond that this builds will never be broken.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Smack, we were always at one another's throats. Rarely saw eye-to-eye. But I never wished you ill winds. My deepest, most sincere condolences for the tragedy that has struck you and your family

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

It was 2 years ago yesterday. I will never forget the incredible support and, yes, love, that was shown to me and the boys by this particular crowd of ner-do-wells.

I received some really good advice - which I've taken, dedicating myself to our boys. Our cruising adventure to the BVIs begins in 3 months. We are so excited.

Thank you all. There is still a huge, huge hole in our lives. But we are doing okay.

I'll leave with this poem provided by one of my favorites around here, BillyRuffn:

Quote:
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails in the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, there she goes!”

Gone? Where? Gone from my sight… that is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and just as able to bear
her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size
is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says,
“There she goes!” there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices
ready to take up the glad shout, “There she comes!”

Henry Jackson Van Dyke (1852-1933)
Absolutely wonderful. God bless you all. You're really good people.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Prep well and enjoy the islands and smile and remember and share as soon the boys will there but not as close - so make memories and stay out late and take risks and have fun

Just our thoughts and opinion
