Not much progress to report. Spent most of the weekend doing family obligations, returned home to find the daughter of good friends, along with her husband and soon-to-be grandchild were killed in a car crash in Arizona... I spent some quiet time alone, exposing screws in the cabin sole, listening to the rain on the roof of Our Lady, contemplating Fate, who truely is the hunter. :(

Sorry, Ed. Real Sorry. Be thinking of you / them.
So Pheonix gives you quiet time, too, eh?
Sorry you needed it, glad it was there for you.
Ed, sorry for the loss. Sometimes we are just left wondering why. :(
Sorry that you've had such news, Ed. To every thing there is a season, but some of them are just too damned short.

I'm sorry to hear your sad news, Ed. I'm glad you could go find Quiet on board Phoenix.
Our boats are so much more to us than just a way to get from one place to another, aren't they? I spend a lot of time on my boat just sitting at the dock, enjoying the peace & quiet and trying to sort out life.

It was a saying of Bacon's that the old go to their death, but death comes to the young...
My condolences, Ed. Give these hurts their due, but go forward.
That way, adversity will temper. Dwelling upon it makes for brittle unhappy people.

My condolences to your friends, Ed. This kind of loss is especially hard to bear for the soon-to-be-Grandparents. -Hugh

Sorry to hear that Ed. My condolences as well. Maybe work on the boat will get your mind off this sad news.
05-13-2002, 03:55 PM
Ed, I'd like to add my condolences as well. It's tough to lose someone but to lose three at once--no one should have to suffer that. I'm sorry...
05-13-2002, 05:26 PM
My sad sympathies, my friend.

ED....I sometimes wonder how I survived tragedys before I had a wood boat to console me and occupy my thoughts. Alan's advise is wise and we would all be wise to follow it. Peace to you my friend.

Thanks all - I'll probably be off line for a day or two. I'm going to be in Portland, ME, but, unfortunately, not alone and my time won't be mine. (I'll be up there on business and probably won't even get a chance to duck in to Hamilton...) If I'm lucky I'll get a whif of salt air.
We are all so close to the edge - Ask not for whom the bell tolls...

Condolences from over the deep blue Ed... Our love to all involved.
Take heart that youve got a bunch of mates all thinking of you and those friends who are hurting.

What can I add to what our friends here have already said, Ed? Please accept my sympathy too, and carry our condolences to your friends.
