Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Steve (aka Smackdaddy)

Updated content by Jeff J - Forum Admin, Rob, Kane and everyone else at Sailnet H.Q.

On behalf of everyone at SailNet and the entire SailNet community, I would like to offer our deepest sympathies to Smackdaddy. As some of you undoubtedly know by now, Smackdaddy recently suffered the tragic loss of his wife in an automobile accident. While I would not be so presumptuous to pretend that anything we might offer, would alleviate his loss, it is my hope that by letting Smackdaddy know that we stand with him as a community, keeping him in our thoughts and our prayers, we might offer him some small degree of emotional comfort and shelter during this time. Smackdaddy has played a key role in maintaining the vibrancy of the SailNet community for many years. Please join us in letting Smackdaddy know we are thinking of him and his family.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

His boat was already a terrible loss I can only hope that the loss you refer is a material one and not one that hast to do with the health of his family.

I am not a religious man so I cannot pray but I am troubled with this sad news and I can only hope for the better. My deeply sympathy lies with him.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

That's a sobering post.

Steve, I wish you and your family the best. It sounds like you have some difficult days ahead; and I sincerely hope there is some good news in your future.

He certainly has mine.
All to often as we read news accounts of tragedies and losses it becomes easy to forget that real people are involved.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

In addition to the loss of the boat through absolutely no fault of his own?! Oh, my. Smacky's one of the good ones and I will be thinking of him until his return.
